1090 PALMS, VENICE, CA 90291

asking price: $1,425,000

Quaintly nestled on a large lot on an extra-wide boulevard, amidst an eclectic mix of much-loved Venice homes, La Bella is a delightful 1929 Spanish cottage with plenty of room to expand. Architecture fans will revel in the specialized style and vintage detailing you don’t find in most new homes.

The living room radiates European elegance. Soaring vaulted ceilings are highlighted by rustic cross beams, beautiful wrought iron chandeliers. The room is crowned by a triptych of small-pane arched glass windows and the armadillo keystone fireplace deserves, worthy of having a fairy tale written about it.

La Bella’s dining room, like the day room off the kitchen, is light, bright and tickled with alluring details. There are two entrances at the back of the house, revealing an expansive yard brimming with possibilities.

You will smile when you enter the master bedroom and notice the shapely arched glass windows. On the sea wall, the hung sash windows will let in the ocean breeze.

At the back of the property, abutting the alley, you’ll find a potential garage, studio, office…an interesting existing building. This completed structure was on the property when the front house was built in 1929. (The title company will supply the details.) Think of La Bella as an opportunity to have your own compound.
