The Venice home featured in the TV series, Californication, just sold for $14.6 million, a record for the Los Angeles neighborhood, The Los Angeles Times reported.

L.A. architect and environmentalist, David Randall Hertz, who designed the Balinese modern residence in 1995, owned the home and lived in it.

In addition to being the primary filming location in Californication, the home was also used as a setting for scenes from the movie, Adaptation.


Built on a 7,500-square-foot lot in the Silver Triangle and inspired by Hertz’ travels through Southeast Asia, the compound is comprised of four structures, connected by three bridges that surround a lap pool, the listing states.

The interior living space consists of 5,000 square feet, with seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a media room, and a pool house.

Outside, there is an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit, an outdoor shower, a rooftop deck, and a basketball area.

Awarded the “Sustainable Living Award” by the Eco Home network, the residence is known for pioneering many sustainable home features and materials, such as concrete floors and counters recycled and certified sustainable wood; a photo-voltaic solar energy system; and natural, air conditioning-free ventilation.

The buyer was a real estate investment group led by Venice-based sustainable builder Nick Valencia, Hertz said.
