Location: Venice, California
Venice, California, famous for its beach, boardwalk, and bohemian lifestyle, offers an intriguing range of residential architecture. A lot of it still comprises modest bungalows, but recent redevelopment has also brought more sleek, high-end modern homes to the mix. This breezy 2008-built house, a 10-minute stroll from the boardwalk, has the feel of a glassy, streamlined, wood-laden midcentury home after a fancy contemporary renovation.
The first highlight of the 3,457-square-foot residence is the double-height living area, which leads to a kitchen and formal dining room in the rear of the house. Two bedroom suites are located on the second floor, and the master suite—with its spa-like master bathroom and garden terrace in tow—are on the top level. There's also a rooftop deck with panoramic views of the hip seaside community.
