Marina del Rey house description

Somewhere over the rainbow


Sometimes taking the road less travelled yields a pot of gold – and a key change north of the neighbourhood’s main boulevards, that’s exactly what you’ll find inside this boundless five bedroom, five bathroom converted duplex. Comfortable bedrooms, en suite bathrooms and a sizeable deck with a view will have adults singing the upstairs’ praises while downstairs, Mary Poppins herself would have a jolly holiday among the brimming playroom and nursery. Composed with fanfare for your entire ensemble, this palatial residence is dipped in a palette of colours that will bring out your inner child to daydream and play and let your imagination run away.

The maestros

Your hosts originally hail from the faraway United Kingdom, but were swept off their feet by the creative charms of magical Venice. Musicians, their two little princesses are their greatest masterpieces, as evidenced by the medley of novelties and
trinkets dedicated to youngsters within the home.

The amazing technicolour dream house


The master bedroom is a rhapsody in rich brown woods while the twin is pretty in pink, serving as both young artist’s studio and menagerie for tea party guests of every species. A spacious living room strikes a chord with a sleek ebony grand piano, while the shiny eggshell kitchen offers counter space to feed an orchestra. Against the brilliant blue sky, the tempo slows as a vast patio invites you to cosy up by the fire pit and watch the stars duel the marine layer for your affections. And yet, this is just a prelude to the wonders that await children just one level below.

Outplaying an enchanting nursery, two additional bedrooms, and a second kitchen is a little girls’ playroom with amusements aplenty in a symphony of colours. The stunning finale is just outside, where a secret garden envelops the playhouse every child dreams of – you just happen to be staying inside the real deal.

Paint the town red


Whether you’re from the Yellow Rose of Texas or the Emerald Isle, you’ll be lulled by the calm adagio of the Venice walk-streets and canals, seduced by the lively beat of Abbot Kinney’s restaurants and bars, and entranced by the calypso rhythms of Venice Beach – and all of this local colour is within a two-mile radius!

                                  Location

                                  Long ago – after the resort crowd found a comparatively happier place on earth in Anaheim, and oil tycoons drank up fossilized riches for decades – the artists came to Venice, eschewing posher Santa Monica above, Mar Vista aside and affluent Marina Del Rey below.

                                  Their needs were minimal, their possessions few… but their creativity quickly took root in the salty sea breeze. They created the pedestrian-only Ocean Front Walk promenade, equal parts seaside and sideshow. The main drag – Abbot Kinney (named after the city’s co-founder) – became thick with specialty curio shops like Tony’s, cafés like sandwich staple Abbot’s Habit and local watering holes like The Brig.

                                  And then a funny thing happened. Ideas, it turns out, are quite valuable to those who need them. Soon the artists found themselves in demand and their city prosperous, beckoning artists of other trades – designers, chefs, decorators, and mixologists – to organically integrate their own ideas alongside Venice’s historic canals and coffeehouses, embracing new yet preserving old.

                                  Today’s Venice is an eclectic mix, a patchwork playground where vestiges of its counter-culture days proudly neighbour hip new entries, such as city-wide brunch and brick-oven pizza destination Gjelina and Mediterranean-inspired tapas at Primitivo Wine Bistro. While antique shops like Firefly and The Perfect Piece remind us that what’s old can still be new again. And it remains a place for artists, vintage yet modern, serving draft beers alongside handcrafted cocktails, for barefoot hippies and mustachioed hipsters alike.
