Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante has sold a home he owned through a trust in Venice for $2.825 million.

Built in 1924, the charming canal-front bungalow features a bay window seat, stained-glass windows and wood-beam ceilings that are paired with more modern elements. Craftsman-style windows look out toward the water.

The light-filled cottage, known as Casa di Gennaio, contains 2,052 square feet of white-walled living space. The kitchen has been updated with a wine fridge, stainless-steel appliances and a walk-in pantry.


Counting the master suite, which has a reading nook, a fireplace and a balcony, there are a total of two bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Frusciante, 47, had two stints with the Red Hot Chili Peppers before leaving the band a second time in 2009. He played on five of their studio albums and in 2012 was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Anthony Stellini, Sherri Rogers and Elisa G. Ritt of Nourmand & Associates were the listing agents.
