This stunning 1920's bungalow turned bohemian haven is planted within the scenic labyrinth of the Venice walk-streets. Its combo of vibrant colors and revitalizing earth tones creates a soothing atmosphere, intensified by the sounds of the lapping Venice canals nearby. The craftsman decor and cultural influences throughout are awash with golden sunlight by day and silver moonlight by night. Following a barefoot stroll or bike ride to convene amid local artists on Abbot Kinney, this place welcomes you with an array of rustic riches. Relax and get back in touch with your roots.
Salt of the earth
Your hosts are a husband and wife couple native to Ireland, who have flourished in Venice for two decades. They've cultivated their livelihood through entrepreneurship and product management, but scatter to the wind with any opportunity for travel.
Like nothing on earth
All the elements come together in this elegant, earthy home. A rich wood foundation runs throughout, accented by deep violets, yellows, and greens that blossom in the abundant sunlight. You'll find seeds of influence from Southeast Asia and South Africa to be evident in many rooms. The front deck, ideal for sunbathing (or photosynthesis), ushers you through the front door. To your right is a tidy living room plot with fireplace and original bay windows; and the neighboring den is furnished with pullout couch and Jacuzzi tub bathroom. Dig into a delicious dinner at the craftsman dining set to the left, beyond which sprawls the exquisitely envisioned kitchen of bronze and bold affect. Branching off of the dining area, you can climb the staircase to the master bedroom where beautiful tapestries, quaint fireplace, and russet sleigh bed nurture the soul. The ensuite master bath with claw-foot tub makes this burgeoning oasis complete. Sprouting off the back of the home is a thriving patio deck with seating area, fireplace, and fully equipped guesthouse to shelter additional life.
Ends of the earth
Stretch your limbs and head outdoors. The walk-street district of Venice supplies plentiful charm in its narrow paths, lined with craftsman homes and lush gardens. The historic canals nearby have an ever-budding reputation for enchanting sunset strolls. And only a short bike ride away you'll uncover wining, dining, coffee shops, and boutiques that spring up from Abbot Kinney to the eclectic Venice beach boardwalk.
