CALIFORNIA PROVENCE IN VENICE ... Open architecture with skylights & 10' ceilings create a great room perfect for entertaining. Tall 8' Anderson doors open to the courtyard making the space even larger. The open arrangement of the main living area leads to flexibility in furniture placement. The kitchen has stainless steel high-end appliances & a European feel. In the living room, a limestone fireplace provides warmth on cold winter nights. Striking hard wood floors flow throughout the house. The master bedroom has a wonderful walk-through built-in closet space & French doors that lead to the rose garden. The artist's studio/guest quarters is a perfect work at home situation. There is a shower plus a large sink in the bathroom, perfect for cleaning paint brushes. The studio has a small fridge under the built-in cabinets & is plumbed for full kitchen. There are double doors which open to the courtyard, the floors are stained cement. Custom wood gates & stone work adds a touch of Provence.
"We built this house 18 years ago & it was a labor of love. We love the feeling of serenity once we walk through the gate we find ourselves in a different world. The sunlight is gorgeous & with the breezes, there is no need for air conditioning. Walking on Abbot Kinney is a favorite past time. It feels like a cross between Paris & So Ho, NYC. & our favorite part is that you don't have to get in your car for the whole weekend."
