Venice Beach house description

For those who enjoy surrounding themselves with great architecture, romance, art and history this is your home away. Overlooking the historic Venice Canals, steps to the beach and Abbott Kinney, this custom built home is a new, modern architectural mansion in a very unique and convenient location.

Did we say location? The canals have always been the center of it all in Venice. You can take a 5 minute stroll from our back door through the historic canals of Venice, walking by amazing gardens and incredible multi-million dollar homes by some of LA's hottest architects, and wind up on the white sand and blue ocean of the Pacific.

Or walk out the front five minutes and you'll find yourself on Abbott Kinney, recently given the distinction as the 'Coolest Block in America' in GQ Magazine’s April issue, with amazing new shops and some of LA's hippest restaurants & bars. Walk or bike to Marina Del Rey, Main Street Santa Monica and Rose Avenue which are all blossoming with new shops and restaurants are also just minutes away. (Check this: Our home comes with free use of two Venice cruiser bikes, two skateboards, three surfboards and two bodyboards ++ ) Stock up on wholesome essentials at the neighborhood Wholefoods; take a ride to the Santa Monica Pier and watch a concert in the summer; splurge at the Third Street Promenade; catch the latest flick at Theater Marina del Rey! Its all so near.

Our architect designed the home specifically with the main area above on the third level to offer the best views of the neighborhood, canals and mountains.
Entertain in our spacious and light loft style living room, floor to ceiling windows, open staircase, hardwood maple floors, contemporary California paintings, a dining room which seats 8, and a huge kitchen all under amazing skylights and soaring ceilings. It features a huge comfy couch, a cozy gas fireplace, an HD TV, and a retractable 120 inch movie screen that recedes into the 14 foot ceiling with projector and a dolby surround system for that perfect movie experience after dark.

For our culinary guests, our modern stainless steel kitchen has everything you need including two sinks, a dishwasher, microwave, a four fire burner cook top, a large built in refrigerator & freezer, and a breakfast bar. And every Friday there is a Farmers Market two minutes up the road with the freshest organic vegetables and fruits.

One level up from the living room to the fabulous roof deck.......you can lounge or entertain in this amazing space with incredible views. It is set up with a barbecue grill, lounge furniture, umbrella, heater, private sun deck and the worlds best Jacuzzi by Sundance Spa. Enjoy breathtaking sunrises while drinking your morning coffee from our new Keurig coffee machine, sunbathe on our private sun deck, or relax in the Sundance Spa Jacuzzi, while watching the some of the most spectacular sunsets and 360 degree views of Los Angeles.

One level down from the living room you'll find three grand bedrooms, decked with luxurious brand new beddings, soft clean linen and towels. The master bedroom has a huge California king sized bed, a 52 inch HD Flatscreen equipped with DVD, DVR and Cable TV with three free movie channels and hundreds of channels, and a private master bathroom with whirlpool tub and double size shower with three massaging shower heads.

Two other uniquely decorated guest bedrooms are on the same floor as the master bedroom, each have a soft queen bed and share a bathroom with shower/tub combination.
Super High Speed Internet and cable T.V. are included.
The bedrooms sleep 6 in total but if requested we can set up a queen size air mattress in the living room for 2 more.

The living quarters are located above the first floor parterre and the property is enclosed with an 8 foot fence which provides maximum safety.
The canals are a very quiet and peaceful community. This house is ideal as a retreat for couples, families, small groups, and individuals looking for an unforgettable vacation in a place with exquisite taste located in the heart of Venice.

Parking is available for an $15/day in a garage. The garage will fit most cars up to an SUV but please check with us before. Some large vehicles might not fit.

Heating/Cooling: This home has central AC and heating and a grand and cozy fireplace. (Most of the older places can get really chilly during a night in winter or easily overheat in summer so you'll appreciate it.)

                      The house is located right next to the world famous Venice Canals Historic District which draws thousands of tourists every year.

                      In 1905 Abbot Kinney wanted to recreate Venice, Italy in California and he created a real beauty. In the early morning you can see cranes and rare birds on your 5 min walk to the beach since it is also a bird sanctuary. Many famous writers, actors, and creatives have houses here like Matt Groening ( Simpsons ) , Ken Kesey ( One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) and Orson Bean.

                      Abbott Kinney Blvd with its galleries, restaurants and exquisite boutiques, the street they named after the builder of the canals is now considered 'the coolest block in America' according to QO magazine and only a 5 min walk away as well.

                      Last but not least, check out the Venice Boardwalk which is the most visited attraction in LA and only 15 min away. The boardwalk is a 2.5 mile stretch on the beach lined with Vendor booths, cafes, shops, street artists and each volleyball fields.

                      Street parking is easy in our area since we are in a low rise residential only neighborhood.

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About: My husband and I love meeting new people and sharing the great experience that Venice has to offer. We're glad that HomeAway gives us the opportunity to travel and connect in a very unique way. We are both creative design professionals and would love to give you tips of what to see and do in LA. You will, as we do, love strolling on Abbott Kinney ( which GQ rated as the coolest block in America ), go surfing or sunbathing at the beach and explore the world famous and highly entertaining Venice Boardwalk. I'm originally from Germany and always looking forward to meet other fellow Germans.

                      Why Venice Beach:
                      Venice is a small beach community located west of downtown Los Angeles, just south of Santa Monica and north of Marina del Rey. Centrally located, Venice is 16 minutes to Los Angeles International Airport and 20 minutes to Beverly Hills and, although very close to major freeway access, most close-by areas are best reached by surface streets. Originally developed in 1905 as 'Venice of America,' it offers a wide and diverse range of living opportunities ranging from stately Craftsman built just after the turn of the century and little 1920's California bungalows to avant-garde contemporary homes and loft-style residential studios. Many of the neighborhoods of Venice are like smaller communities unto themselves, each with its own flavor and style. Many have active neighborhood groups, including organized neighborhood watch associations.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This is a custom, modern home that was built in 2007 and for us it is all about the 360 degree views. During the early mornings you can catch the most marvelous sunrise while drinking your coffee and during the evening you have these breathtaking sunsets and can relax in the Jacuzzi while you watch the world go to sleep.
