Property description

Magical walk street oasis just 2 blocks from the heart of Abbot Kinney & short walk to beach.

The property offers the best of both worlds; maximum privacy but superior location that is 2 blocks from the Abbot Kinney shopping and dining district. It is also a little over a 1/2 mile to the world famous Venice Beach and Boardwalk.

Whatever you consider to be an ideal vacation is available to you in this Shangri-La by the sea. If you are a beachcomber, there is ample room to relax and frolic in the sand and surf. You will also be in the middle of the action of Venice’s famous Boardwalk. There you will find an eclectic mix of performers, vendors, sidewalk cafes and bars. You can also rent a bike or roller blades and venture down the path to the Santa Monica Pier and 3rd Street (Shopping) Promenade which is only a short distance away.

If shopping and/or dining is your thing, Abbot Kinney is likely to satisfy all of your desires. GQ Magazine has called it the “Hippest Block in America” and there you will find a multitude of shops and many highly rated dining options.

Our home offers you the ideal “get away from it all” feel that is essential when it is time to recharge your batteries. From the exterior the house has a magical, English Country look. There is a tastefully landscaped front yard which sets the stage for our most welcoming home. Enter the front door and you will find our expansive living room on the left. This room has vaulted ceilings and artisan painting that offers a dramatic space to enjoy our fireplace and flat screen TV. On the right you will be in our dining area (also vaulted ceilings) that comfortably seats 8. Beyond that room is the fully updated, European style cook’s kitchen. Among other things, here you will find a double oven and a Viking cook top. Continue down the hall and you will find a bedroom on the left. This room includes a double bed, a flat screen TV and a DVD player. Across from the bedroom is a full bath that includes a rain shower and a Jacuzzi tub. In the rear of the downstairs is a family room with a large screen TV, DVD player and surround sound system. The room has 8 foot wide doors that open to an enchanting backyard with tasteful furnishing and a large gas grill.

Go up the stairs and you will find the master suite as well as a 3rd bedroom. The Master Bedroom is equipped with a flat screen TV and DVD player. The Master Bath includes a dual walk in shower. Each upstairs bedroom has its’ own furnished terrace which looks over neighboring treetops.

This exciting area combined with the serene retreat of our welcoming home, offer the ideal complement that is sure to deliver a memorable vacation.

PLEASE NOTE - As far as PARKING is concerned, there is one off street spot (in front of our garage) and ample on street parking in directly in front of our home (please refer to the pictures accompanying the listing).

From its’ world famous boardwalk and beautiful beach to the shopper’s paradise of Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice offers a unique and vibrant mix of activities and attractions. Originally called “Venice of America,” Venice was founded in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as a beachfront resort town. Kinney’s initial vision of creating a cultural mecca was set aside to accommodate the public, and Venice became the “Coney Island of the Pacific,” complete with an amusement pier and a miniature steam railroad. Kinney also created a system of canals and imported gondolas and gondoliers from Venice, Italy.

Today, Venice is one of the most popular (2nd in the state to Disneyland) destinations for visitors and locals alike. From its days as home to Beat Generation poets and artists, Venice continues to be an important Los Angeles cultural center. Whether you’re looking for some fun in the sun, a unique shopping experience, or a wide variety of dining choices or an evening of art and music, Venice has it all.

Abbot Kinney
While Venice's claim to fame may be its beach culture, its’ most stylish block, Abbot Kinney, has become a desired destination in its’ own right. The heart of the Abbot Kinney district is the area along Abbot Kinney Boulevard between Venice Blvd. & Main St. The area includes numerous shops, galleries and many cafes, bars and eateries. On the first Friday of each month an additional attraction are the dozens of food trucks serving gourmet food at great prices. All of the local shops remain open late into the night.

Ocean Front Walk/the “Boardwalk”
There is no denying that the main attraction is the world famous Boardwalk. All year round (especially during the summer season and on weekends) you will find street entertainment of all kinds. Street performers include singers, dancers, musicians, jugglers, acrobats, mimes, comics, magicians, prophets, fortune tellers, and untold others. You will see people with tricolor hairdos, painted faces, weird tattoos, and outlandish clothing--or lack of it. It is a virtual sidewalk circus! It is also an open air flea market with an eclectic variety of goods and services. Along the walk you will also find an assortment of retailers, including souvenir shops, bike rental outlets, arts and crafts, restaurants and snack shacks. A popular option is to sit at one of the ocean-side restaurants to do some serious people watching. There are also playgrounds, skate parks and courts for basketball, handball, and paddle tennis. Muscle Beach is an infamous outdoor weight room (made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger) where fanatic bodybuilders pump iron in a public show of strength.

The 3 mile ocean beach offers activities for the entire family. If lounging in the sand is not your bag, surf on the crashing waves, ride a bike or roller blade along the path to Santa Monica and beyond.

Venice's canals (complete with ducks) are home to some of LA's most eclectic residential architecture. See tiny bohemian cottages next to million-dollar ultra-modern houses. The canal streets are between Washington Blvd. and Venice Blvd.
