Eric Clapton’s California Beach House Is For Sale!

September 22, 2016 | By | Comments (5)

The former beach home of one of the greatest guitarists of all time, Eric Clapton, is up for sale. While Clapton—known for legendary rock songs such as the 1970 hit “Layla”—hasn’t lived in this contemporary masterpiece since 2004, the house remains an iconic structure in Venice, California, thanks to its architect: Arata Isozaki, a Japanese architect who also designed the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Grand Avenue building.

And look at this entrance, which leads straight into the house’s expansive private patio, a 600-square-foot space that has plenty of room for outdoor entertaining. Its blend of contemporary materials and minimalist architecture would definitely make us stop to take another look! This house is the only one Isozaki has designed in the United States, giving it a certain prestige even without its famous former owner.

This contemporary escape is only steps from the Pacific Ocean and Venice Beach. The well-shaded patio’s relaxed vibe and laidback textures reflect the eclectic atmosphere of the whole LA neighborhood, where local shops and street performers are on every block.

Once you step inside, the Venice influences get more obvious. This is clearly an artist’s house, with a huge collection of artwork on the wall and an eclectic assortment of other collectibles strewn throughout the space.

Check out all the light in this contemporary escape—the second floor looks over the first, and the open concept floor plan lends itself to a free flow of air and light … and creativity! The 20- and 30-foot ceilings throughout much of the home help.

And, as if this property couldn’t get any better, the exterior is painted a cheerful blue that’s perfect for the beach!

The home’s interior is 2,920 square feet, with two beds, two bathrooms, and a sleeping loft. It’s currently on the market for $4.75 million. See more images and the full listing here.
