BoHo Dreams in Venice, $3M


Utterly simple, beautifully crafted, comes with its own street art, plus a two-level roof deck overlooking Venice.

Where: 44 Horizon Avenue, Venice
Asking: $2,995,000
What: A 3-bed, 4-bath, c.1983 Venice classic, handsomely and recently renovated, with open, loft-like interiors that look back to a time when Venice was inexpensive and unconventional, and a mecca for ground-breaking (and once-young) architects like Frank Gehry, Morphosis, Frank Israel, and Marmol Radziner. Also classic Venice, a mural by Marioe stretching the length of the property– a relic from a time when Venice was a little rough around the edges and fortifications were a necessity.

What We Love: The simple, consistent palette of white walls and clear-finished fir throughout, plus the current owner/renovator had the good sense to bring in Kim Gordon, the doyenne of soulful BoHo chic, to choose the furnishings and art.

Because tile can be boring:

The two-level roof deck is the stuff of Venice dreams, especially the outdoor corner kitchen.
