Full description:

Lavish in architectural integrity, striking detail and historic importance, The Venice Beach House is a private oasis tucked into the very heart of the most vibrant and contemporary community in Southern California: Venice Beach. Also now known as Silicon Beach and home to a dazzling roster of tech companies as well as the Venice Boardwalk and the shopping-dining mecca that is Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice was once a sleepy, sandy getaway at the end of the Red Car Line.

It was that escape from the hubbub of downtown Los Angeles that Warren Wilson, owner of the Los Angeles Daily Journal, envisioned when he built the house for his family on three white sand lots in 1911. Spacious and dignified, built in the Craftsman style of Greene & Greene, the house was a landmark from its inception in Abbot Kinney?s \"Venice of the Americas\" and is today included on the National Register of Historic Places.

Just one block from the beach, boardwalk and Venice Pier, the two-story, nine-bedroom, seven-bathroom house sits three separate lots totaling 8,100 square feet. The house sits on two parcels, with the third lot, now a lush garden, vacant and buildable. While The Venice Beach House has been operating as a fine boarding establishment for over 30 years. It once was and can be again the most exclusive single family home in Venice.

Rich with period details, the house has a multi-gabled roof, deep overhang, porches, pergola and porte coch?re. It is surrounded by a rare full-sized yard of exquisite gardens easily viewed from its many private balconies and sets of multi-paned casement windows. The interior is also rich in Craftsman decorative elements, such as boxed beam ceilings, picture rails, plate rails, built-in book cases, hardwood floors, brick fireplaces, and wide woodwork with corner block accents.

With many original details, the most striking and visible face of the property is the west facade facing the ocean and the ample side yard. A distinctive two-story stucco-clad chimney services fireplaces in the living room and master bedroom. Three bedrooms face front from the second floor, each with five casement windows to catch the ocean breezes and the view. The room to the west was once a pergola, later enclosed to form a sun room for the master bedroom.

The Venice Beach House is a singular and exceptionally fine offering with a landmark pedigree and an expansive parcel of land in an unparalleled location. Whether for investment or private residence, this is an extremely rare opportunity for a visionary buyer to own an incomparable property in Venice, California.
