Is Venice's Anjelica Huston Gourmet Bathing Club Dead?

New, 12 comments

Actress Anjelica Huston's Venice fortress has apparently fallen out of escrow and rehit the market following, so we guess those plans for a social club that surfaced in September are dead. It was revealed a few months ago that Venice Social Club Holdings was in escrow on the property, which was designed by Huston's late husband/sculptor Robert Graham, for $12 million, and that they planned to "create a community gathering space that honors Venice's unique legacy" with Huston's help, according to a proposal nabbed by Page Six. The club would've charged members $2,000 a year for access to "a farm-to-table restaurant, gallery, screening room and cultural programing," as well as "gourmet bathing activities" and "seltzer-water tastings." The three-bedroom, three and a half-bathroom house and studio first hit the open market in May 2010 asking $18 million. It's back at its most recent asking price of $13.9 million.
