Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: I reside in Venice and I'm referred to as a neighborhood developer. When I purchased the property in 1979, my friends thought I was crazy. Back then, Venice was a high crime, blighted area with little prospect of improvement. Now, everyone says I'm brilliant!. The truth is, I was simply lucky. The one thing I've learned over the years is if you have your choice between smart and lucky, take lucky.

Why the Owner Chose Venice, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
This is a classic, 1913 California craftsman sitting on a promontory that protrudes (actually encroaches) out into California Avenue. Because of it's architecture and site, the property has become an local landmark. I always felt it was just a matter of time before the Abbot Kinney District would take off. I waited and waited and waited and waited. Finally, a few years ago it started happening. Today, the Abbot Kinney District is the trendiest section on the Westside. And Venice is becoming one of the top vacation destinations in the world. And it's only 6 blocks from Venice Beach, part of the largest, continuous, dry sand beach in the world.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The combination of comfort, convenience, security, and affordability within perhaps the most unique, useable, small-space layout possible. Best of all? One, secure, onsite parking space with an automatic garage door opener. Check out the video.
