The Skinny: Despite a strong celebrity connection—the famed actor/artist Dennis Hopper resided here up until his death in 2010—this loft-like compound has been on the market for twenty months now. The main house, a high-ceilinged, open-concept space with a full mezzanine and direct garage access was designed by Brian Murphy, while the adjoining trio of condominiums were composed by none other than Frank Gehry. The unconventional nature of the place combined with some boldfaced names has led to a bit of schizophrenia when it comes to pricing the place. When it first came on the market in July of 2010, the compound was asking $6.245M before taking a bit of a roller coaster ride. First it was chopped down to $5.2M, then, by the end of 2010, was asking $4.8M, then, after regaining confidence, was price upped to $6.5M. After yet another series of chops, the place is now listed for $5.6M. Is that the magic number, or will this one keep riding the roller coaster? With more than 15,500 square feet, seven bedrooms, and nine bathrooms, this is one uniquely enormous Venice compound.
