You could live in Eric Clapton's former Venice home for only $5.195 million.

The house, known as the Bjorson House, was built in 1986 for art collector Teresa Bjornson, according to the L.A. Times. It was designed by Japanese architect Arata Isosaki, who also designed MOCA. It is the only residence he designed the United States. It's also a very short walk to the beach.

According to the listing:

The gated/secure and very private residence offers 30 ft ceilings in the grand room and 20 ft ceilings in the master bedroom. The second floor looks out over the grand room and offers a kitchen, dining for 10+ people, master bedroom, gorgeous master bathroom, walk in closet, and ocean views. The home also has a loft bed space and stunning 600 sq. ft. very private patio for entertaining. The architectural one of a kind home offer the best of everything including a Garland professional range, high speed internet, surround sound and built in security system. Parking for four cars.

Clapton moved in in the 90s, then sold the house in 2004 to actor Stephen Meadows. It was back on the market in 2011 and came with a 12-minute guitar instrumental found in the sound system. This demo was apparently recorded and subsequently forgotten by Clapton himself, according to Curbed LA.
