Built in 1924, this shingled SOCA beach house has a distinct bungalow feel, but it is anything but lacking in size. The property measures approximately 6,500 square feet – with over 3,000 feet of interior living space. In the main house you’ll find three bedrooms, and five baths.

And, while this timeless abode still offers some of its original features, such as pristine hardwood floors, its updates include marble countertops and Viking appliances in the fit-for-a-chef kitchen, and light bright paint that highlights the high-beamed ceilings.

Perfect for sharing the view with family and friends, the property also offers a three level guest house, as well as space large enough to comfortably fit nine vehicles. In addition to providing stunning views throughout, the exterior includes a brick patio surrounded with professional landscaping, and a brick wood-burning fireplace.

Adding even more to this unique find is the fact that it is mere steps to the sandy beach, as well as some of Venice Beach’s hotspots along Abbot Kinney and Main Street.

If this eye catching cottage looks familiar, it may be because it was the featured property on the cover of Country Living Magazine in May 2006.

This one-of-a-kind home, located at 12 Rose Avenue in Venice Beach, is listed for just over $10M. Private tours can be arranged for interested buyers.
