The fetching modern-style Venice, California— the so-called ‘Hollywood Bowl House’ — is back for a relist this fall with a price snip. Previously listed at $14 million the property is currently tagged at $9.995 million.
With its exterior clad in planks rescued from a renovation of the historical venue, the house casts a particularly warm and weathered shadow on its neighborhood. In addition, the material represents visual ballast for the tough, industrial, and generic look of architectural concrete, which also partially defines the home, and contributes to a complex, layered material execution.
With five bedrooms and eight baths across 7,102 sq. ft. of interiors, the house could certainly be called a modern villa. In front, the interiors are accessed via a glassy primary entry, a welcoming flourish; in back, the house blooms into an indoor/outdoor design, with a semi-enclosed swimming pool in the layout.
Other details of note at work in this extraordinary corner of Venice: a splendid floating staircase, some welcome dashes of color — cool only — and skylights.
