Stretching from Venice Boulevard to Pacific Avenue, Abbot Kinney is a quirky street characterized by trendy boutiques, hip restaurants, and see-and-be-seen bars. Named “the coolest block in America” by GQ Magazine, this eclectic Los Angeles enclave attracts hipsters and hippies alike. Located just minutes from Venice Beach, Abbot Kinney is the perfect neighborhood for anyone who wants to live by the water without sacrificing modern conveniences like ready access to restaurants and shops.
Designed by architect Dennis Gibbens, the Abbot Kinney House is a serene oasis in the heart of Venice. Spread across 4,488 square feet, this modern masterpiece shows off a concrete and glass exterior and light-drenched interiors. Sky-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass allow plenty of natural light to filter into the penthouse, while crisp white walls and sleek wood accents create a soothing paradise. Outfitted with three bedrooms and five baths, the residence can easily accommodate out-of-town guests.
The open-concept living room features a fireplace and generous glass windows, while the nearby dining area is designed to host family members and guests alike for both formal and informal meals. Decked out in black and white tones, the kitchen features a large white center island and state-of-the-art appliances. The kitchen and living areas are built around a private alfresco courtyard with a fire pit and plenty of room for lounging or sunbathing. It’s the perfect place to sip a glass of wine and enjoy a lively conversation after a sit-down dinner.
Upstairs, the enviable master suite shows off 15-foot ceilings, a large walk-in closet, and a sumptuous bath with a deep soaking tub. But the home’s true showstopper is the rooftop sky deck, which offers a bird’s-eye view of palm-tree-lined streets and cloudy blue skies. Make entertaining a breeze by grilling steaks or chicken on the built-in barbecue, or curl up on the built-in sofa with a good book. The sky deck also comes with an outdoor shower and plenty of room for seating. Located just steps away from some of the hottest shops and restaurants on Abbot Kinney, the Abbot Kinney House lets residents truly have it all. This regal residence is currently on the market for $14.5 million.
