Near the bustling and weird Venice Beach Boardwalk (to the rear of the Venice Ale House, to be exact), and just steps from the sand, you’ll find a shingled cottage with a turret for sale for $10.25 million.
It’s more cottage in feel than size. The property measures 6,000 square feet, quite generous for a Southern California beach house, and holds a three-bedroom “bungalow” built in 1924, along with a three-level guest house.
Featured on the cover of Country Living Magazinein May 2006, the darling main house features high ceilings with exposed rafters, a brick fireplace, spiral staircase, updated kitchen, and lots of ocean views.
If you want to soak in the sunshine but need a break from all of the tourists, there’s a charming deck with a fireplace, bougainvillea, and plenty of space for al-fresco dinners.
Per the listing, the property is on the market for the first time in nearly four decades.
