The Venice compound of the late actor, photographer and artist Dennis Hopper has sold for $5 million.

The property includes an industrial-inspired main house of about 5,000 square feet, a pool house, a guest cottage and three two-story condominiums for a total of seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 9,595 square feet of living space. The main house, with a corrugated metal exterior, was designed by Brian Murphy; the condominiums, by Frank Gehry.

Hopper, who died in 2010 at 74, starred in and directed"Easy Rider" (1969). He starred in scores of other films, including "Speed" (1994) and, more recently, TV shows such as "Crash" (2008-09) and "E-Ring" (2005-06).

Jane Gavens and Jade Mills of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills South office were the listing agents. Assaf Raz of Abbot Kinney Real Estate represented the buyer.
