Anjelica Huston is planning to turn her Venice home of nearly 20 years into a members-only club for citizens of the increasingly moneyed beach-side city. Nicknamed “The Fortress” for its freak-foiling outer wall, the towering Windward Avenue property was designed for the actress by sculptor Robert Graham, her late husband. Page Six reports that Huston will put the residence up for sale and sit on the board of a private club charging $2,000 a year for members to enjoy their own farm-to-table restaurant and indulge in, get this, “seltzer-water tastings” and “gourmet bathing activities.” (And here we thought the dudes double-parked in front of Gjelina Takeaway were acting entitled.) Let’s just hope the club members can tolerate the squeals generated by Harry Perry and The Butter Man as they’re trying to kick back by the water.
