Anjelica Houston is selling her Los Angeles home for $18 million.

The 'Addams Family' actress has put The Fortress - a warehouse-style property designed by her late husband, the sculptor Robert Graham situated in the trendy Venice Beach area of the US city - on the market, almost 17 years after it was built.

Although the house is on the beach, has a pool and large grounds, there is only three bedrooms as much of the property has been given to a dance studio and exhibition gallery, where Robert made and stored his work.

The property is close to the homes of Kate Beckinsale, Alec Baldwin and Francis Ford Coppola.

Anjelica - who was once the long-term girlfriend of Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson - has said she and Robert were inspired by the privacy of the Californian convent in which they spent their honeymoon in 1992, so they created The Fortress, which could keep out prying eyes.

There is also almost 4,000 square feet of interior living quarters, which includes a library, dramatic galleries looking over three-storey studio and five bathrooms.

The property also boasts a large basement, games room and gym.
