About Rochelle D. Ventura

I am a retired former City of Los Angeles and County of Los Angeles employee who moved to this area at the age of 6 during World War II. I grew up in the area and raised my son and daughter in this house. Over the years I have collected sculpture and art from California artists which is displayed in the house.

Currently, I live with Phil half time in San Jose and half time in this house in Los Angeles. The house is listed for rent during the times we am not in Los Angeles.

I have studied architecture and design and frequently travel abroad to check out cities throughout the world.

I love this area and am happy to share my home with visitors to Los Angeles. Everyone seems to like it a lot.

Rochelle D. Ventura purchased this house in 1971

Why Rochelle D. Ventura chose Beverly Grove

My home was built in 1929 in the older Spanish Revival style architecture. You will enjoy staying here if you prefer an older home with spacious rooms and unique architectural features.

I purchased the house from the original owners in 1971 so I am only the second person to own this house.

Over the last 46 years I have lovingly restored the house, retaining almost all the details and finishes that make it special while, of course, adding electric outlets, wifi, modern appliances, central heat and air-conditioning, etc. The house has its original hardwood floors, original toilets (without tanks) and lots of storage.

I added the front courtyard in 2001 after seeing the famous patios in Seville, Spain. Everything in the courtyard is authentic to the period of the house. The fountain (turned off for now because of the drought) was built from tiles copied from those in the Santa Barbara courthouse. The pavers are "Rue 71" a reclaimed street I purchased in Europe and had shipped to Los Angeles. The beams in the covered dining area were stenciled by a painter that used to work in Barcelona. The courtyard has been a favorite area for outdoor dining for many of my former guests.

There is also a lovely "Palm Court" backyard featuring 9 Kenya palm trees, Bird of Paradise plants, and Meyer lemon and Key West lime trees (help yourself).

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit of this house is its location. LACMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, is within walking distance, as are the Peterson Automotive Museum and the Arts and Crafts Museum. The Original Famers Market and The Grove are also within walking distance in the other direction, as are the convenient Trader Joe's, Whole Foods Market and CVS Drug Store. You can walk to public transportation and connect up with the Los Angeles subway system. You can walk to the pick up points for the ON OFF bus and several other sightseeing buses.

The house is very spacious and comfortable. I provide plenty of paper supplies, and you are welcome to use my tea, coffee, condiments, oils, saran and foil, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rachel and her family were the perfect long term guests. I would recommend them to any VRBO host.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

We Loved this property. Beautiful patio front and back. Close to everything we needed and great for dining inside and out. Comfortable beds and great bathrooms. Loved the purple and green one. An added treat was the Los Angeles times delivered every morning. We were three people but the house could easily accommodate five. Will definitely try to book this property when ever we return to Los Angeles.
