Architect David Hertz sold his Balinese-inspired Venice home, which was made famous for its appearance on Showtime’s sitcom “Californication.”

The home sold for $14.6 million – the highest recorded sale for the beachfront neighborhood – to a real estate investment group led by Venice-based builder Nick Valencia, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 5,000-square-foot property consists of four structures connected by three bridges surrounding a lap swimming pool. The seven-bedroom home also features a media room, pool room, outdoor kitchen, rooftop deck and basketball area.

Hertz designed the home in 1995. It gained notoriety in 2007 when it was used as the primary filming location for “Californication,” starring David Duchovny.

The record off-market sale beat out the former Venice record: the $11.2 million sale of the former home of sculptor Robert Graham and actress Anjelica Huston in 2014.
