WHERE ELECTRIC AVENUE MEETS ABBOT KINNEY...THE BEST IN RESIDENTIAL IN-TOWN LIVING.
Steps from my ever popular Designer Bungalow, the Designer Loft is located in the heart of Venice, immediately adjacent to the best blocks of Abbot Kinney and short blocks to the inspiring Venice Boardwalk and beach at the Pacific Ocean.
The Bungalow has been redecorated, and the Loft has benefited with the addition to it of the gorgeous apple green with woven leather Grand Comfort Sofas by LeCorbusier and black leather tufted bed by Mies Van der Rohe. I deal in vintage and antiques, and treasure these pieces. As with my other home, I also decorate with art and pieces from Gumbo Kinney Vintage. That's the shop I have in Venice. What a great life! That livingroom rug is pretty amazing, too. It's from a fine, old rug shop in Toronto, Turko Persian (since 1906!) I'm in the loft now, writing, and appreciating the Venice energy and my (newest) additional residence. You'll love it. A large triangular shape; Venice is built in triangles. Light, private and on a fashionable block, the loft is surrounded by architecturally significant housing, both very modern and dating from as early as 1904, Venice's beginnings and present are really cool, reminds me of comfort foods, with hard liquor.
There is a Victorian, simple yet really rich, room divider that well defines a bedroom and a livingroom. The lr sleeps one on the leather bed. The bedroom has a vintage iron day bed and trundle that converts it to a comfortable king, with a 2 inch temperpedic pad, and good linens.
The bath has a commode, with bidet attachment (hey, it's European, I'm game!) The bathtub and shower are against the grooviest glass block wall. This apartment has great, great light.
Decent, cute kitchen that's easy to keep neat.
Wifi is all that's needed in Venice, and it's here.
I stay involved enough for you to get your wishes met.
There is a small private yard with two chaises.
Venice is really pleasant, considering it is enjoying world class notoriety these days.
Gjelina's nearby...yay! Local 1205 down the block for coffee and great stuff, wonderful.
We can discuss bikes.
And, great news, check out my newest project, it will be an amazing place to guest!
Use good sense and enjoy Venice!
