431 Howland Canal | Venice
Imagine yourself in this tranquil environment in the highly coveted Venice Canals. This rare double-lot-compound in the premier location on the water has its own permitted dock. The 3-bedroom main residence and 1-bedroom cottage offer serenity and enchantment. The main home includes a living room with extra-high, beamed ceiling, hardwood floors, and tiled fireplace. A huge arched window affords an idyllic view of the canal and the ducks swimming by. The dining room, appropriate for both casual and formal entertaining, though gallery windows, overlooks a verdant garden flourishing with numerous flower and fruit bearing specimens.
The sun-bathed family room, with its custom crafted cabinets and shelving, double-height ceiling and triple cathedral windows allows for informal interaction with those in the cook’s kitchen.
The high beamed second floor master suite features a wood burning fireplace, sitting area, and private terrace overlooking the canal. A unique walk-through closet leads to the marble and glass master bath with custom cabinetry, fog-free mirrors and heated floor.
An additional pair of generously-sized family bedrooms, with a separate bath, complete the second floor.
The sunny canal-fronting guest cottage, with its own kitchen and bath, is a true hideaway, suitable for guests, a secluded writing/art space, yoga studio, child’s playroom, or just as a quiet place to read the Sunday papers.
This oasis of Spanish character bonuses an outdoor dining arbor, and unheard of parking for 6 cars in one of LA’s most unique communities. Walking distance to the beach, as well as to Venice’s shops, restaurants, and nightlife.
