Famed for its bohemian vibe, welcoming spirit and unique neighborhoods, Venice is a bustling beach community that features the stylish boutiques and dining of Abbott Kinney, funky shops, skate parks, street performers and plein air artists along Venice Boardwalk, Muscle Beach’s iconic outdoor gym and a wide variety of residential options full of outstanding architecture and unusual allure. From multi-story, modernistic, beachfront mansions to charming, vine covered cottages along the canals, Venice is a place unto itself.
Founded in 1905 as a seaside resort, Venice merged with the city of Los Angeles in 1926. Over the last century, the area’s one-of-a-kind character and incredible landscape has made it a magnet for artists, athletes and celebrities including Julia Roberts, Angelica Houston, Billy Al Bengston, Ed Ruscha, Perry Farrell, pro-skateboarder, Jay Adams, and photographer, Lauren Greenfield. At the epicenter of Silicon Beach, Venice is also attracting innovators from the L.A.’s booming tech community who relish the creative vitality, energetic atmosphere and unmatched convenience of the Venice lifestyle.
With a population of more than 40,000, according to the L.A. Department of City Planning, living within 3.7 square miles, Venice is a dense, dynamic and diverse community. The hustle and bustle of Venice’s distinctive commercial districts is well balanced by its secluded streets and private pockets that make residential life feel extremely intimate. The median household income of $67,647 (2008 dollars) ranks high in Los Angeles, as does the average home price of $2,199,000. Venice is served by the LAUSD’s Broadway, Westminster Avenue and Coeur d’Alene Avenue Elementary Schools and Venice High School as well as several charter, magnet and private schools.
