Television producer Eric Gruendemann and his wife, author-screenwriter-futurist P.J. Manney, have put their home in Venice on the market at $2.693 million.

The modern three-story, designed by Larry Scarpa and built in 2013, strikes an industrial tone from the street with its poured concrete, glass and steel construction. Inside, the 2,203-square-foot home holds an open-plan kitchen with a wide island/bar, a den, two bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The loft-like second level holds the master suite, which is bordered on one side by a wall of windows. A small catwalk extends from the master bedroom, crossing over the living room to reach a balcony.


Atop the home, a rooftop deck surveys the surrounding urban scenery and ocean.

Gruendemann previously served as co-executive producer of such shows as “Young Hercules” and “Xena: Warrior Princess.” Manney was nominated for a Philip K. Dick Award for her 2015 science fiction novel “(R)evolution.” Her third book in the series, “(CON)science,” is due out later this year.

The couple bought the property five years ago for $2 million, records show.

Kerry Ann Sullivan and Tami Pardee of Halton Pardee + Partners hold the listing.
