Nestled on one of the best blocks in Venice and only 4 blocks to the beach, this lovingly reimagined Mediterranean home is filled with surprises. Welcome your guests into the double-height living room with multi-paned windows that frame the beautifully xeriscaped front garden, and let in all of that Southern California light. Grand enough for entertaining (game night, anyone?) yet cozy enough for a lazy afternoon nap, a wood burning fireplace is a stunning centerpiece to the space. The heart of the home is the chef's kitchen with high end stainless steel appliances (Wolf, etc.) and lots of storage. Set a table for 8 in the dining room, or open the French doors to the back garden and take the party outside. A Saltillo tiled courtyard patio hosts both outdoor dining and living rooms, and spills into another lushly landscaped garden and raised organic vegetable bed. Both generously sized bedrooms feature en-suite baths, one upstairs, and one down. The detached garage with additional 2-car parking in the rear also features an attached "bonus" room which opens to the patio. Close to great dining (Charcoal, Beach & Brew) and the beach, and a quick jump to all the shopping and dining on Abbot Kinney or Rose Ave.
