McBeachy! Patrick Dempsey Buys Venice Contemporary
“Grey’s Anatomy” star Patrick Dempsey has snagged a California micro-compound about a mile from the Pacific Ocean in the Venice Beach neighborhood of Los Angeles, Variety reports.
Dempsey — known on the TV show as Dr. McDreamy — and his wife Jillian bought the property for $ 1.9 million. The tiny 3,900 square-foot lot hosts the original 1950s bungalow, which was renovated in the mid-2000s into a one-bedroom, one-bath guest quarters with kitchen. There’s also a second residence, a three-story house featuring walls of glass and corrugated metal siding. The two structures are linked by a redwood bridge that also serves as a two-car carport.
The couple can’t get enough of the Pacific. They primarily live in Malibu on five acres above Zuma Beach. Their Frank Gehry house, known as the “Tin House” and built in the 1960s for acclaimed artist Ron Davis, recently graced the pages of Architectural Digest. The Dempseys reportedly bought it in 2009 for $ 7 million.
