About the Property
Upscale & private. Main House -3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath. Separate Guest Apart.King bed
We've tried to think of everything; as a result our guest are raving and we love that they are. What we hear most when travelers arrive is 'It is so much bigger than it looks in the photos'. What we read in our guest book most often is "we don't want to leave"
Ideally located on one of the best Venice beach walk streets a few steps from the beach and the iconic Venice Boardwalk, this casually elegant, two story, designer’s home will enchant you. Enter the private front courtyard and you will find an inviting outdoor living room to enjoy the sea breeze or get warm around a large fire pit. Inside the house details abound. An open floor plan with soothing colors, comfortable seating arrangements and bold striped rugs enhance elegant living at the beach. An eat in kitchen with a rustic farmhouse table suitable for large gatherings, meals or meetings, shares space with a cozy TV area, fireplace and flat screen tv. A full bathroom on the first floor is accessible from outside for after returning from the beach. Upstairs the enchantment continues with 3 light filled, tastefully furnished bedrooms: 1 cal king, 1 full bed and 2 twin beds. A vintage bathroom on the second floor has a separate shower room, freestanding tub with a full surround shower drape for privacy, WC toilet room, sinks and plenty of counter space and storage. The back patio directly off the kitchen brings the outdoors in. It is tastefully landscaped and perfect for alfresco meals or barbecues. For larger groups (over 6 adults) a flight of stairs leads you to the guest apartment located on the second floor above a two car garage. Its wood beamed vaulted ceilings and unusual details add to the comfort and unique feeling of this one of a kind, luxury home. This ensuite studio apartment is equipped with a kitchenette, (bar refrigerator, sink and microwave), and a California king bed. It is private and ideal for larger families or multiple families vacationing together. For parents, a getaway from a getaway! Free hi speed internet is included in both the main house and apartment. Apple TV and Netflix are available in the main house. Throw a towel over your shoulder for a short walk to a great beach perfect for swimming, surfing and boarding. You will find surf boards, boogie boards, beach toys, beach towels and coolers for your use in the garage. Leaving the hubbub and rich color of the boardwalk behind and upon your return to the oasis, an exterior garden shower with hot and cold water is available for rinsing off after your relaxing or energetic day in the surf and sand. You may never want to leave this barefoot luxury compound, but when you tear yourself away you will find yourself a short walking distance to world class shopping, galleries and dining on Abbot Kinney. Bike ride on one of the 4 beach cruisers we provide or walk to the amusement park on the Santa Monica pier where Historic Route 66 ends. Marina del Rey with sailing and boating opportunities is a bike ride or short car drive away. Easy access to lax airport.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We are local homeowners who have lived in Southern California for over 25 years and the proud owners of a newly renovated Venice beach house. We recognized a great house from pictures posted on the internet and purchased the house 5 days after seeing it. We have been in love ever since. Transplanted from the east coast, we love the mostly bug free environment of California and the incredible weather at the beach that allows us to live outdoors for many months of the year. We are parents to two teenagers who love to bring their friends to the beach. We want ours to be the home that they continue to visit and bring their friends from college.
Why the Owner Chose Venice, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
As an interior designer I wanted to make the house both comfortable, luxurious and unusual. After renting the same beach condo in Laguna Beach for 15 years I knew what I liked and expected and what kept us going back each year. I have tried to create the same high level of living in our beach home. We have furnished it like a private home not a rental. The house has charm galore from the location on a walk street, to the Dutch door in the front and finally to the optional, airy, spacious, separate guest apartment over the garage. And then there is the location. Renegade Venice Beach and the contrasting upscale Abbot Kinney Boulevard has something for everyone yet the house escapes it all and is its own tranquil, private escape. We accept most credit cards. Limits and fees apply.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have maintained the unique character of the house built in 1904 and furnished it in rustic modern. The kitchen is well equipped with a generous supply of pots and pans and attractive tabletop items. The linens are luxurious and each room is unique with unusual whimsical features. The firepit in the front courtyard is perfect for the cool beach nights and being able to park two cars tops off the Venice experience. We accept most credit cards. Limits and fees apply.
