Situated on one of Venice’s unique walk streets, this charming one-bedroom cottage combines the best of two worlds – California Craftsman styling with a thoroughly modern upgrade. Step through the secure front gate into a lushly landscaped garden shaded by mature trees, paths lined with succulents and a sitting area for two. A magnificent fountain splashes in the corner. Once inside this tranquil urban oasis, the sounds of the city recede into the distance.
The front door opens into the spacious living-dining room. Polished oak floors, original molding and hardware, and built-in fireplace and shelves hark back to the days when Venice was a sleepy little summer destination. Light and airy, there are garden views from every window. Original art and photographs decorate the walls adding to the casual, welcoming air. The living area to the left has new contemporary furniture and a large flat screen HD television with cable. High-speed wi-fi makes keeping connected easy. Sliding glass doors open to a private deck and your own secluded corner of the garden. Sit outside and enjoy your morning coffee or enjoy a shady afternoon with your favorite beverage while you listen to the nearby fountain.
The generous circular table in the dining area seats four. The all-new kitchen features stainless steel GE appliances including a refrigerator, 4-burner stove, microwave and dishwasher. A large stainless steel sink, new chrome fixtures, and Corian counter tops compliment the clean white cabinetry. A complete selection of cookware, dishware, and glassware make it easy to create a full gourmet meal, make a picnic for the beach, or just whip up a fabulous breakfast.
The cozy bedroom has a queen-sized bed and ample storage for your belongings. The en suite bathroom features a large glassed-in tiled shower, marble vanity and new tiled floors.
Central heat and air conditioning insure your comfort no matter what the season.
The cottage shares the lot with two other bungalows and there is a shared laundry room on the property with a new washer and dryer.
Assigned parking behind a secure gate makes access easy and trouble free. Leave the car behind and take a stroll through the walk streets to Abbot Kinney Boulevard, just 15 minutes away. Sample some of the unique shops, galleries, and restaurants that have made this one-of-a-kind street world famous. Better yet, rent bicycles, the best way to get around. Ride down to the beach and experience the Venice Boardwalk for a taste of shops, open-air restaurants, street vendors, artists, and musicians – the real Venice. You can ride along the bike path north all the way to the Santa Monica Pier, or south through the Marina to Play Del Rey, a charming enclave of shops and restaurants.
