Venice Beach house description

This lovely 1911 Craftsman original is perfectly situated in the heart of Venice. Less than 2 blocks away from Abbot Kinney Boulevard where there is no shortage of critically acclaimed cafes, bars and restaurants; not to mention the seemingly endless number of unique and intriguing boutiques and shops.
It’s also just a short walk or bike ride to the sand and sea and to world famous Venice Beach Boardwalk where you can enjoy the local cultural flavor first hand. Cycle up to Malibu or all the way down to Redondo Beach on the bike path where only sand separates you from the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

About the rental-

Just inside the front gate you enter a diverse garden where we cultivate a few organic fruits and vegetables. If you find these tempting, help yourself!

Stepping up to the enclosed porch, that laid-back California vibe engulfs you. Two 3 speed beach cruisers, beach chairs and boogie boards are standing by! An Eliptical is also at your disposal should you want a workout beyond all the outdoor activities available.

Upon entering the front unit of the duplex you step into the living room and note that the floor plan flows into the dining room. Hardwood floors running throughout, wood burning fireplace, beautifully appointed furnishings, accessories, and a distinct art book collection will confirm that you have found your home away from home.

The first of the two bedrooms is off the living room. It features the original deep pocket door, a Keetsa organic queen bed, a built-in for clothes and a closet.
The second bedroom is off the dining room and features an organic king mattress, a dresser, a closet and extensive shelving with a varied book collection.

The large kitchen is ready for preparing a quick and simple meal or a more gourmet spread as it is fully equipped with professional stainless steel appliances that include a Wolfe range, Viking refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher (Whole Foods Market is just minutes away!). All cookware, cooking utensils and basic condiments are provided as well.
At the other end of the very spacious kitchen is the laundry area hidden behind folding doors. Across from the washer and dryer is a round table and 4 chairs for another place to eat, work or hang out.

Moving out the kitchen’s French doors you enter the very private back garden. First onto the deck where you can lounge, barbecue and dine al fresco.
As the sun goes down you’ll likely migrate to the very back of the yard to sit and enjoy the wood burning fire ring - perhaps with the perfect glass of wine!

This home will certainly appeal to the discerning traveler seeking an alternative to a boutique hotel.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1998

          About the owner: I came to Los Angeles to attend UCLA in 1984. I've lived all over the city and decided to buy in Venice because I wanted to be close to the ocean. I was also very attracted to the small neighborhood feel that was inherently Venice.

          Why the Owner Chose Venice Beach:
          I chose this particular property because of it's size, warmth and charm AND it's location.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          After a fun filled day on the sand, on the bike path, or shopping and dining on Abbot Kinney or Rose Avenue, the private and peaceful deck and back yard are an inviting way to wind down and engage in just about any mode of relaxation.
