Welcome to Venice
Originally a beach resort set on two miles of oceanfront property, Venice is now among Los Angeles’ hottest neighborhoods and top global tourist destinations. In good company, Venice is adjoined on the northwest by Santa Monica, on the northeast by Culver City, Del Rey and Marina Del Rey, on the south by Ballona Creek, and on the west by the Pacific Ocean. Known for its canals, beaches, and classic Southern California architecture, Venice is one of Los Angeles’ most vital beach communities booming with modern architectural homes built along the boardwalk with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean as well as newly developed luxury apartment complexes. While the lots are traditionally smaller in size, the homes are still chic and impeccably designed, evoking the perfect blend of a beach town, community sensibility, and an eclectic urban hub.
Their most known tourist attraction – the Venice Boardwalk – is a nearly three mile stretch of a pedestrian promenade boasting an endless parade of the most charismatic and unique entertainers and performers. Abbot Kinney Boulevard, for instance, attracts not only a plethora of artists, restaurateurs, and designers to this prime shopping destination for both locals and visitors, but more and more new high-end businesses to the area. The neighborhood maintains a vibrancy and creative spirit unlike any other area in Los Angeles. Venice can be an entertainer’s dream or the ultimate sanctuary.
In 2017, Venice ranked as the seventh most expensive neighborhood in Los Angeles to buy a house, with a median home value of $1,578,200, up nearly six percent from the previous quarter, coming in just behind the Hollywood Hills and just ahead of Beverlywood.
