Open House Obsession: High Style in Venice


When: Sunday, June 15 from 11:00am to 2:00pm
Where: 709 Milwood Avenue, Venice
How Much: $2.7M, on the market 11 days
What: A 3-bed, 3-bath architectural statement (plus a 1-bed, 1-bath guest cottage) on a street-to-street lot, built in 2010 to replace a run-down classic Venice cottage. The result is a beautifully composed and sophisticated rendering of a child’s drawing, with the public spaces open to the outdoors:

Stairs to the office/loft and master suite are encased in black lacquered planks:

Below: Just inside the pivoting front door, and the office/loft:

Heath tiles in the baths– one with a deep soaking tub:

The view towards the guest cottage, converted from the garage– we’re glad to see plenty of room for an in-ground pool:
