Norwegian record producers and songwriters Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen, better known as the production duo Stargate, have bought a modern home in Venice for $5.25 million.
The purchase was made through a limited liability company that also listed British producers Hugh Atkins and Daniel Poku, who goes by the stage name D-Mob, as members, according to property records obtained by The Times.
Designed and built by Kim Gordon, the 4,300-square-foot home evokes a rural European farmhouse with its steel roofline, stone accents and wood siding. Walls of steel-framed windows underscore the barn-shaped silhouette of the exterior.
Inside, open and airy living areas include a formal living room, a dining room, a center-island kitchen and a pantry/wine room. Glass walls off the main level slide to reveal three gardens.
At the rear of the home is a second living room, kitchen and studio-style apartment. A total of four bedrooms and 4.75 bathrooms includes a master suite with a steam room.
Atop the home, a rooftop patio takes in sweeping views of the surrounding area.
The property came on the market in April for $4.987 million and was under contract in about three weeks.
Tami Pardee of Halton Pardee & Partners was the listing agent. Robin Walpert of Sotheby's International Realty represented the buyers.
