When it comes to this modern minimalist home in Venice, less is much more.
The clean and bold design of this David Hertz designed property caught the eye of the LA Times, who featured it as their ‘Home of the Week.’ Their piece lauds the 2008 construction for it’s block facade, steel and walnut staircase, and masterful landscaping. Diving a little deeper, the 2200 square foot home at 1201 Cabrillo Avenue in Venice also features a galley style, custom Bulthaup kitchen, a glass panel steam shower off the master suite and a terrarium courtyard separating the main house from the second master suite – though we shouldn’t fail to mention that both the main house and the guest house have access to the rooftop hot tub.
The clean and simple right angles of the home are a hallmark of Hertz’, rendering even the garage an admirable work of art.
Teles Agents Anastasia Bowen and Jerry Jaffe are also mentioned by the Times. Asked for recommendations on what to do nearby, Bowen (a Venice resident herself) might suggest a quick walk down to boutique and gastropub lined Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Weekends at home might start with a short stroll to either Blue Bottle or Intelligentsia – one isn’t going to do much better when it comes to coffee. After that, it’s just a matter of what one is in the mood for: shoppers pop across the street to Marine Layer to gear up on fashionable outdoorwear perfect for Venice Beach. The thirsty may head instead to The Otherroom, a craft beer haven that is itself an altar to the minimalist style.
These options only scratch the surface for local haunts, and best of all, they’re each less than a three minute walk from the front door.
Of course, between the rooftop hot tub and it’s view of the wide ocean sky, who would want to go out anyway?
