              Car: Not Necessary

              Our loft apartment is located just a short walk to the famous Venice Beach and Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

              At Venice Beach, visitors can shop, swim, dine, workout, bike, surf, para-glide, or just watch the various street performers.

              Abbot Kinney Boulevard bustles with activity. Many movies are filmed there such as the current film 'Chef'. Abbot Kinney has 5 star restaurants including the local favorite, Gjelina. There are art galleries, antique shops, treat shops, clothing stores, home stores, bars, juice bars and restaurants. The first Friday of every month the stores stay open late and Abbot Kinney Boulevard becomes a kind of outdoor party scene with some 30 gourmet food trucks, live music and people watching galore.

              Be sure to visit our open air fresh produce market every Friday morning just a 0.4 mile walk toward the ocean on Venice Boulevard. 100+ vendors from as far north as Santa Maria (central California) bring their farm fresh organic products to the parking lot just west of the library from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Get a fresh pastry and coffee, juice, or tea while you peruse the fresh goodness.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1989

              About the owner: I'm a retired police officer and my wife is a teacher. We have two children and two grandchildren. We both grew up in California and have lived in Venice Beach for over 30 years. Our interests include travel, art, remodeling properties and our kids and grandkids.

              Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
              We have lived and raised our children in this unique beach community. When we moved here from greater Los Angeles 30 years ago, we knew we would stay. Whad found our home. There is no more unique beach city in California than Venice. It is both eclectic and sheik. It has casual eateries and '5 star' restaurants. It has street artists and posh galleries. It is the home of movie stars, musicians, surfers, artists, families, and lots of dogs. Our nickname is 'Dogtown'. The walk street community is special because of its proximity to everything related to the beach cities yet the walk streets provide a private, green, tranquil setting. First there is no street traffic. There are only alleyways for owners to access parking and sidewalks in the front of the homes for leisurely walks and quiet ambiance. Next, Venice Beach, Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Marina Del Rey, and Santa Monica are all within walking distance or a short bike ride away. We have a parking place for guests but it's so easy to get around that many people don't bother renting a car. Plus there are two car services called 'Uber' and 'Ride' which can be utilized instead of taxis.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Our property is unique because it has a rare private stand alone loft. The homes on the walkstreets are usually single family. A few homes have guest houses on the ground floor, but our modern loft sits alone above the garage. We call it the 'treehouse' because of the sense of floating above the ground.
