Location: Venice, Calif.
The Skinny: It used to be that Venice Beach was a rough-and-tumble neighborhood inhabited by punks, surfers, and artists. Well, some of the boardwalk performers remain, but the property prices have escalated over the past two decades, as L.A.'s wealthier creative types discovered the off-beat 'hood. This $4.2M recent build is a product of that gentrification. Designed and constructed by lauded SoCal architects Marmol Radziner, the 3,600-square-foot home sits directly on the boardwalk, with instant access to the sand and sweeping views of the ocean. Large expanses of glass make the most of that view, but they also reduce the privacy, what with hundreds of people walking by just a few feet away.
