This warm and inviting home is a clean and unfussy space perfect for anyone dreaming of unwinding in peace in the hot Californian sun. The roomy patio has a choice of seating options, and we loved the array of potted plants, bringing a welcoming, relaxed feeling that totally fits the setting. The local park is just down the road and is any sport or activity lover's dream, complete with tennis and basketball courts and a baseball field. Unlike other LA neighbourhoods, this one is very walkable, and you can be at Lincoln Boulevard in twelve minutes on foot or six minutes by bike. While many visitors' first thought is a beachfront location, this home is a much better bet for those looking to travel further afield. You can easily explore the rest of LA without getting snarled up in Venice's infamous traffic, and you're still less than two miles to the beach. Meanwhile, those looking for delicious food and independent boutiques will be pleased to learn that Abbott Kinney Boulevard and Rose Ave are even closer.
