The 9 bedroom, 11 bathroom estate has nearly 14,000 sqft. of living space and sits on 2.77 acres. Outdoors, the property includes a pond with a waterfall, a tennis court and a pool/spa. The grounds are immaculate and the property is maintained by two full-time employees.

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 10.59.18 AM

In 1956, Davies, who was William Randolph Heart’s mistress and a legendary film star of the silver screen era in the 1930s, purchased a piece of land from the founder of Hyatt Hotels, Hyatt Robert von Dehn. She built a home on the property that is known as 1 Von Dehn Road in Rancho Mirage, CA.

Hearst was a publishing magnet, best known for building the nation’s largest newspaper chain and the magnificent and over the top Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA. Hearst and Davies were publicly a couple for many years, as Hearst’s wife would not grant him a divorce. They had a child together, Patricia Van Cleeve Lake, also an actress. Both kept Lake’s true identity a secret for many years.

Upon Davies death in 1961 the property transferred to the man she married after Hearst passed away in 1951, Horace Brown (another well-known actor).

Brown eventually sold the property in 1972 to the family that owned Trader Vic’s, a well-known restaurant chain. In 1996, the property was sold to a private family. The property was upgraded throughout the years to its present state today. The original structure still remains along with the upgraded portions of the home.

Rodeo Realty's Sunset agent Rhonda Payne lists Venice home designed by Bridgid Coulter


A refined rustic beach house designed by actress-turned designer Bridgid Coulter has just went on the market and it’s already making headlines. The modern beach bungalow is listed by Rhonda Payne of Rodeo Realty. The property is listed at $2,450,000 and is located on a 3,000 sq. ft. lot in Venice’s Oxford Triangle.

The property has been featured on LA Times, Daily Mail UK, Curbed, The Real Deal LA and TMZ.


Coulter explored the potential of the home by raising the ceiling of the main level to 10 feet and adding a second level. Coulter says she wanted the home to feel serene, airy and lofty. The extraordinary 3 bed, 3 bath masterpiece includes a “doghouse” pop up that leads to a 360 degree panoramic view from the roof deck.

The environmentally conscious home has hydronic radiant heating under all floors and remote venting clearstory windows that utilize centuries old climate control methods to maintain comfortable interiors all year. Coulter used Zero VOC paints, FSC certified woods, green glues, natural marble and stone all throughout the design of the home to reduce the potential for pollutants.

Outside, the small yards are filled with local and drought tolerant plants to minimize impact on resources. The property is completely surrounded by all new perimeter fencing.

Coulter (Bridgid Coulter Design, LLC) is a dreamer with myriad professional endeavors: trained in acting, improv, and interior design. While most proud of her role as a mother and mate, she juggles the occasional acting gig with running a boutique interior design firm based in Santa Monica. Bridgid has spent the last two decades in some part of the interior and architectural design process. She started the development arm simply to understand how to design and build a home. Her approach is a methodical, artistic process during which she contemplates every step of the journey as it develops both internally and externally.
