Roll Hall of Famer Robbie Robertson of The Band sleek contemporary residence and a modern Steven Ehrlich, AIA-designed loft in Venice that really does have it all.




A prime locale meets chic environs at this sleek contemporary residence owned by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Robbie Robertson of The Band. Purchased by the musician as an escape to write what would become his New York Times bestselling autobiography, “Testimony,” the gated house is near the Beverly Hills Hotel and across from Franklin Canyon Park.

“The home is minutes from downtown Beverly Hills, but completely secluded and surrounded by nature,” says listing agent Ben Lee of Coldwell Banker Realty.

“The home also is modern but cozy, and seamlessly integrates with the exclusive canyon surroundings.”

Expect an open floor plan showcasing walls of glass that open to highlight a patio deck crafted using limestone and Brazilian Ipe wood, fire pits, and a spa that waterfalls into the pool, along with a striking floating staircase that leads to an over-the-top master retreat boasting a fireplace, access to an outside upper deck and balcony, walk-in closet, and bath with new steam shower and sunken tub.

Additional accouterments include imported Italian fixtures, designer lighting, walnut flooring, a temperature-controlled garage with quartz flooring, and a professional-grade sound system.
