There may not be a white room with black curtains, but this $5.2 million Venice listing has some pretty rockin’ features.

Marketing materials for this nearly beachside pad boast that it’s the only private residence in the U.S. designed by Arata Isozaki, the Japanese architect behind Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art and the Art Tower in Mito.

Built in the 1980s, the 2,920-square-foot abode was commissioned by art collector Teresa Bjornson. Guitarist and Cream founding member Eric Clapton lived in the property from the late 1990s to about 2004, Curbed reported.

With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, other features include an open concept living room, hardwood floors, a 600-square-foot patio and furniture designed by artist Klaus Rinke. [Curbed]Cathaleen Chen
