Somewhere this side of the rainbow
Sometimes taking the road less travelled yields a pot of gold. And a key change north of the neighbourhood’s main boulevards is what you’ll find inside this five bedroom, five bathroom converted duplex. Comfortable bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms and a sizeable deck with a view will have adults singing praises while downstairs, Mary Poppins would have a jolly holiday among the delightful playroom and nursery. This residence's fanfare of colours will bring out your inner child – daydream and let your imagination run away.
Your hosts originally hail from Britain, but were swept off their feet by the creative charms of Venice. Musicians, their two little princesses are their greatest masterpieces, as evidenced by the medley of novelties dedicated to them within the home.
The amazing technicolour dream house
The master bedroom is a rhapsody in rich brown woods while the twin is pretty in pink, serving as a young artist’s studio too. A spacious living room strikes a chord with a sleek ebony grand piano, while the shiny eggshell kitchen offers enough counter space to feed an orchestra. The tempo then slows further outside where a vast patio invites you to cosy up by a fire pit.
And yet, this is just a prelude to the wonders that await children just one level below. An enchanting nursery, two additional bedrooms, and a second kitchen with colourful amusements aplenty. The stunning finale is just outside, where a secret garden envelops the playhouse every child dreams of.
Promenade out to be lulled by the calm of Venice's streets and canals, seduced by the lively beat of Abbot Kinney’s restaurants and bars, or entranced by the calypso rhythms of Venice Beach.
