Luxury, tranquility, and a minimalist aesthetic permeates this recently completed home, designed by the owner/ architect. An open rectangular plan defines the ground level, which passes onto green garden foliage and a fountain through floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliders. The house sits like a pavilion within the garden, the actual walls of the house becoming the perimeter hedges, trees, and borrowed views beyond.

Historic Venice Beach and world famous shopping and eateries all within walking distance of Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: I am both the architect and owner of my just completed dream home here in Venice Beach. I grew up in Menlo Park (the heart of Silicon Valley). I graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA degree in English Literature, and later from SCI-Arc (the Southern California Institute of Architecture) with a Master of Architecture degree. I then worked for Frank Gehry and Associates here in Los Angeles for several years, and later with Ricardo Bofil in Paris and Barcelona, before starting my own practice here in Venice. My studio/ apartment are housed on the second level of the property.
Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach: Though I purchased the property in 1998, the qualities which originally attracted me to Venice and the Milwood area, stand fully in today's Venice Beach... the town's walk-ability, access to the beach, an artistic, educated and eclectic community, and top, hip eateries, shops and coffee houses.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Southern California indoor-outdoor living comes to life in this recently completed unique, architectural gem. 9 foot floor to ceiling walls of glass and sliding doors (some that disappear completely into walls) open onto tranquil gardens, outdoor patios, and a magnificent water element. The Kitchen includes all Miele appliances (refrigerator/ freezer, dishwasher, oven/ microwave, and 4 burner gas stove top) and custom cabinetry with Caesar Stone counter-tops. The garden contains a magnificent covered outdoor 'living room.'
The house sits one block from world famous Abbot Kinney Blvd and Gjelina Restaurant.
