About the Property

3BR/2BA - Sleeps 5 - inflate a bed avail for an extra guest

Feel the ocean breezes in this sophisticated luxury Venice Beach contemporary. Minutes from the strand and the convenient shopping of trendy Abbot Kinney—deemed “the coolest shopping street in America” by GQ Magazine-- the home is a study in stylish seclusion. Designed by internationally celebrated architect Steve Ehrlich, as featured in many magazine and books, the house offers the best of California indoor/outdoor living. Composed of hand-troweled ocher and burnt sienna stucco, the home is a cubist sculpture, with curved weathered copper strips serving as a counterpoint to its rectilinear shapes. The lush outdoor areas, including the lap pool, patios, and dining pavilion, have been composed by noted “Green” landscape designer Jay Griffith. The effect is of a Mediterranean paradise, cooled with a generous use of Idaho slate.

Inside the house, massive French doors leading to the garden and 12-foot ceilings convey an instant sense of loft-like openness. Warmed by maple floors and filled with custom furniture, the 2400 sq. ft. home is perfect for entertaining or just relaxing. The home unfolds on three levels (unsuitable for toddlers). On the first is the living room, anchored by a unique stucco fireplace, the commercial kitchen (Subzero, 5-Star Range, hand-honed granite) and the dining room as well as two guest bedrooms sharing a European glass-tiled bathroom with limestone floors and sauna. An entertainment center (television, sound system, DVD library) and laundry facility occupy the second level, where French doors open to slate decks, front and back, looking out on the gardens. The third level is devoted to a spacious master suite with fireplace, and spa-like bathroom, as featured in “The Bathroom Book.”

The location is fabulous. The beach and famous Venice Boardwalk are a 15-minute stroll away. Equally close are the shops, restaurants and galleries of Abbot Kinney. A short drive or bike ride away (two beach cruisers provided) are all the attractions of Santa Monica (Main Street, the famous Pier and Third Street Promenade, with its endless opportunities for shopping, dining, and entertainment). Ask and we can provide more details on the various Farmer’s Markets, gourmet food trucks, live music, cultural events, surf and paddle board camps, and the many other exciting activities that make life in Southern California so special.
