Television and film actor Don Cheadle and his partner, actress-designer Bridgid Coulter, have put their home in the Oxford Triangle area of Venice up for sale at $2.45 million.

Originally a cozy bungalow of just 800 square feet, the home was completely transformed by Coulter, owner of the Santa Monica-based Bridgid Coulter Design, who vaulted the interiors while adding a second level and a rooftop deck.

Tucked within a walled garden, the two-story draws the eye from the street with industrial notes, rust-colored panels and raw poured concrete. Drought tolerant plants and flowering desert museum palo verde trees fill the courtyard entry.


Inside, the 2,400 square feet of living space is awash in a soft nautical vibe. Cooling hues, light wide-plank French oak floors and a rustic staircase with metal rails and oak balusters are among details of note.

Smokestack-style pendant lights top an open dining area, and chef’s kitchen has a La Cornue range, a tiled backsplash and matching custom black and stainless steel hood. A small outdoor living room sits off the main floor.

Upstairs, the master suite features a sitting area and a walk-in closet. The master bath furthers the industrial-chic theme with with iron pipe faucets, a glass-enclosed shower and a custom soaking tub with steel rivets.

There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in all.

A second staircase leads up to the rooftop deck and outdoor living room. Views take in treetops and the surrounding area.

The house last changed hands two years ago for $894,000, records show.

Rhonda Payne of Rodeo Realty is the listing agent.

Cheadle, 51, will reprise his role as Iron Patriot in the upcoming Marvel film “Captain America: Civil War.” Among his other film credits is “Swordfish” (2001), “Flight” (2012) and the “Ocean’s” film franchise.


He has starred in the Showtime series “House of Lies” since 2012.

Coulter, 47, has appeared alongside Cheadle in episodes of “House of Lies.” Her other TV credits include “Family Matters,” “Class of ‘96” and “Shameless.”
