This beachfront community has been among the most desirable ” Eclectic Chic” luxury properties in Los Angeles, featuring a laid-back atmosphere, thriving population and a variety of new and existing real estate. Founded in the early 1900’s, Venice is a unique area whose design was spearheaded by the wealthy industrialist Abbot Kinney. The result is a community that is not only flanked over a mile of flawless beachfront, but also enjoys a series of canals and walking-only streets that simply do not exist anywhere else in Los Angeles. Venice properties for sale range from historical bungalows built in the early 20th Century to spacious single-family residences as well as modern luxury homes. Commercial real estate is also available in high traffic areas such as Abbot Kinney Blvd.
