Property description

I’m a writer and I’m often traveling. My Venice home is a classic 1913 2-bdrm/1 bath Craftsman with hardwood floors and many original details. It’s tranquil, private and flooded with natural light. There’s a porch with hammock and Adirondack chair, and a garden with table and chairs, a Fuji apple tree and a lemon tree. It’s fenced, gated and secure. It's on a palm-lined corner distant from through traffic. A ten-minute stroll by way of the walk streets to trendy Abbott Kinney Boulevard, several minutes by car to the beach or the Venice Canals, or not much longer by bicycle or on foot to all of Venice’s amenities. Plenty of street parking. There’s wi-fi, washer-dryer, TV, stereo, skylights, and books and music and folk art gathered from my travels. With a queen bed, a double futon frame bed, and queen futon frame bed, it can accommodate up to 6 people. If I'm not there house manager Anna will greet you and make sure your visit is a good one.

Venice is... Venice! Quirky, alive, always changing, Venice is filled with secrets and color. Magenta bougainvillea, wisteria...views of the majestic palms against the snow capped mountains beyond. Parrots and humming birds. Crows and morning doves. Always something to see... people to watch. The beach at dawn or sunset. Early morning yoga with the dolphins and pelicans. Sweet smell of jasmine...

Check out Abbot Kinney Boulevard - 'the coolest block in America!' It's a short 0.7 mile walk.

There are lots of really great options, but our VERY favorite restaurant on Abbot Kinney is Gjelina's:

Wonderful Venice Beach and Boardwalk is a must. Only 1.3 miles. A great walk through the tranquil and lovely walk streets or straight down Venice Boulevard. You can also catch the bus that leaves from Venice Boulevard just around the corner.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: I am a fiction writer and also a travel writer. Favorite destinations: Mexico, Burma, Morocco. My base in Venice is sunny, quiet and peaceful - a great place to depart from and come home to after a trip away. It's close to the city yet removed, and tucked into Venice's lively beachside community - reachable on foot, by bicycle, or driving. A great place to be when I'm there, a lovely place for you to visit when I'm not.
