Set on a coveted stretch of the Venice Canals, this environmentally conscious contemporary home, stunningly reimagined by architect David Hertz, offers rare T-canal views and sophisticated interiors just moments from the beach, shops, and restaurants of Abbot Kinney.
Beyond the home’s private gates, a fully hedged courtyard with a hot tub, barbeque, and water feature leads to open, airy interiors. Stairs ascend to a light-filled living space, with heated, polished concrete floors and expansive clerestory windows that bring canal views to the forefront of the living experience. Sliding glass doors foster an effortless indoor-outdoor flow to a canal-facing terrace and a custom chef’s kitchen is outfitted with Bulthaup cabinetry, a Miele stove, Sub-Zero fridge, dual dishwashers, and Syndecrete breakfast bar. Clean, modern lines delineate the architect’s style and flow, while elegant Venetian plaster walls and soaring ceilings enhance the light and scale of the residence.
Suspended over the living room, a voluminous master suite features a showroom closet, generous bathroom with time-controlled sunroofs, and walls of glass with canal views. Sliding glass doors off the bedroom reveal vibrant views of the living area below and city beyond, and can be closed for privacy or opened to flood the room with natural light. An open office space overlooks the living room and a well-appointed ensuite guest room boasts polished concrete floors and a Syndecrete counter and sink. Downstairs, an expansive entertainer’s level fosters a seamless connection to the private courtyard and is also ideal for out of town guests, with a full bathroom, closet, fireplace, and Far Infrared sauna. A vibrant, sustainable rooftop garden is perfectly suited to the Venice lifestyle, with an outdoor shower and views of the canal and its north-south and east-west running waters.
Equipped with solar panels and a water filtration system, this luxury home exemplifies modern waterfront living, offering a heightened confluence of innovative, sustainable design elements in the heart of L.A.’s most dynamic enclave.
