Open House Obsession: You’ve Never Seen Anything Like This Brilliant Venice “Farmhouse” Compound, $6.45MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 1245 Vienna Way, Venice
When: Sunday, August 30 from 2:00pm-5:00pm
What: A 5-bed, 6-bath, 2-half bath house and pool house on a .25-acre street-to-street lot.
Flanking a luxurious pool deck, this long-lost relative of the traditional California farmhouse is a sophisticated update, with judicious use of painted board-and-batten siding outside. Inside, there’s a beautifully curated selection of wide-plank oak flooring, stone, painted wood and subway tile. Below, the entry looks straight through the main floor to the pool house; the Shaker detailing on the stair rail is a lovely touch.
The open plan main floor is a collection of intimate spaces with a seamless connetion to the pool deck.
On the main floor, this bath has direct access to the pool for wet guests.
The second floor master suite looks out over the pool.
What We Love: With the pool, spa, seating, and outdoor bar/kitchen, the backyard becomes the most important “room” in the house.
Meanwhile, the pool house is a fully functioning entity with living and dining rooms, two bedrooms, plus this caterer-friendly kitchen adjacent to the garages.
