Canadian-New Zealand actress, Anna Paquin, is listing this mansion in Venice, California for $14M. The property is just a block from the beach and its exterior clad comes from wood recycled from benches at the Hollywood Bowl. Its uniqueness is incomparable, the wooden exterior still shows the seat numbers from the legendary music venue, which is only noticeable if you’re looking for it.
The Hollywood Bowl replaced its cedar benches in 2014, in which people sat on since 1981. David Hertz, an eco-friendly architect, acquired the wood and designed a one-of-a-kind five-bedroom masterpiece.
The 7,000+ sq. ft residence is set on a 5,278 sq. ft lot, and features solar electrical and thermal systems, energy-efficient lighting, natural ventilation, reclaimed teak flooring, and recycled construction materials. In addition, the home includes the luxury-amenity-necessities, such as a sauna, a gym, an elevator, a private office on the second floor, and a semi-indoor pool.
The nine-bath mansion was acquired by Paquin and her husband, Stephen Moyer, back in 2010 for over $1.2M. Back then, the property was a one-bedroom home which is now used as a guesthouse since the massive upgrade in 2017.
