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 Erewohn and 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 ( like a Lincoln Explorer).
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.)
