Dennis Hopper’s house, bungalow & 3 condominiums, all of which formed a compound in Venice, Cali. were sold, finally, for $5m. Hopper passed away in 2010 at age 74 amidst divorce proceedings, following the actor’s lengthy battle with prostate cancer. Not long thereafter, the house was listed above the $6m mark, and had been in escrow, reportedly, for $5.8m.
With an industrialized main building designed by Frank Gehry, and total living space amounting to just under 10,000 squaree feet, one might have expected this sizable property to sell for more than the sale price, and the new owner for the property has not yet been revealed publicly. Many of the pieces of art that hanged in Hopper’s home while he lived there (by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha to name a few) were no doubt worth more than the building in which they hung.
