This stunning contemporary stand-alone studio with sleeping alcove is just steps from Venice Beach. It has a spectacular loft ceiling, hardwood floors and small kitchenette. Located in a prime location, tucked away just 50 yards off the famous Venice boardwalk and the beach, it is nonetheless still extremely private and quiet. This one-of-a-kind 500sf home was written up in the LA Times and the NY Times for its architectural merit.

The space
It is also featured in the coffee table book "Small Urban Interiors".

The adventure begins with the unique entrance. You approach up a set of stairs and across a redwood bridge to your private front door. Enter into a room filled with light streaming through the many carefully placed windows and skylights. A set of French doors opens to a balcony facade with side ocean view. The angles worked into the design allow light to playfully fill the space. The cathedral beam ceiling soars to 18ft. The floors are of clear fir hardwood. An L-shaped, built in desk doubles as a dining table and can seat three. The small kitchenette has two stainless mini-refrigerators, microwave, sink, and hot plate. The living area has a 50" 3-D flat screen TV with DVD player and a 7ft. sleeper sofa which opens to a queen size bed. In the evening, multiple dimmers and lighting options allow guests to choose among multiple lighting moods.

A step up leads to the sleeping area, which can be closed off from the rest of the studio with curtains to block out the light for sleeping on the comfortable queen sized bed dressed with high count linens. The large bathroom contains a step in tiled shower with rain shower head and a pedestal sink.

The studio also has high speed wireless internet, a thermostat controlled wall heater, and private phone for exclusive guest use, with free unlimited local and long-distance domestic calls. There is a laundry room on the premises. Washer and dryer is found downstairs when you step out of the unit.
Exit the property and you are 50 paces from the center of the boardwalk and the beach.

As most beach properties along the California Coastline, this property is not equipped with an A/C unit. With average beach temperatures ranging from 65 to 75 degrees year round, air conditioning is not generally needed in our beach areas. For our warmer days, each of our beach properties is equipped with portable ventilator fans which, when combined with open windows, allow the fresh ocean air to circulate and cool your property to a very pleasant temperature.
