-------------------

The actor-artist had commissioned the industrial-style main residence as a place to display his artwork.

The corrugated-steel-clad main house, built in 1987, has 4,900 square feet of living space. The town houses, built in 1981, range from 1,143 to 1,330 square feet. The 15,500-square-foot lot includes a pool house and a 1909 bungalow-style cottage of 1,355 square feet.

Hopper commissioned the industrial-style main residence as a place to display his artwork, and he lived there for more than 20 years.

James Dean, with whom Hopper appeared in "Rebel Without a Cause" (1955) and "Giant" (1956), encouraged him to take up photography, which he displayed at the compound along with painting and sculpture.

He appeared in more than 100 films throughout his nearly six decade career including the 1964 counterculture classic "Easy Rider," which he also directed. Hopper died in May 2010 at 74. The compound first came on the market last summer.

Reintroduction of legendary actor and artist Dennis Hopper's stunning compound with improvements just completed by original architect Brian Murphy, AIA.

A once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase 5 separate parcels totaling approximately 15,500 sq.ft. of land featuring a 4,800 sq.ft. main house designed by Brian Murphy, AIA, and 3 two-story condominiums designed by the legendary architect Frank Gehry.

A true oasis in the city, there is also a lushly landscaped yard, a 100-year-old guest cottage, a sparkling lap pool and a pool house.

With its undulating aluminum and steel exterior, the main residence is an ode to the industrial look.

This property represents a truly rare find. It is an artist's dream come true, with its light-filled interiors and its artistic heritage.

Close to both Abbot Kinney and Main Street, this property offers both a rich history and unlimited possibilities for a creative live and/or work space celebrating the very best of Venice.
