    So, here at L.A. Awesome, we often talk about sexy Modern and Mid-Century homes located in Los Angeles.  Today, we'll let you in on a fabulous source to find furnishings for homes like these.

  • Venice Life on the Canal

    2309 Grand Canal
    Venice, CA  90291


    *sloop* *sloop*  That's the sound my oars make as we glide on up to this brand new contemporary home, on a canal, in Venice.  As you exit the watercraft, don't mind the bushes, just jump over them.  They're there for protection fr0m canal pirates.

    The neighborhood is dense, so homes that optimize the entire lot space are prime.  With three livable levels, this home is a great example of well-designed space and efficiency.  And it's the only one, on the canals of Venice, with LEED certification--that means it's "green."

    Out back, here, we have a grassy yard for the dogs, or kids, or both, and an outdoor living room with a fire pit for the rest of us.

    The open kitchen and great room feature 11 ft ceilings, micro finish concrete flooring with radiant heating, and a wood burning fireplace with a gas starter.

    The master suite includes a balcony with water-front views and a fireplace.

    The master bath boasts a steam shower, heated floor, and heated towel rack (ooh, la, la).

    The living room also has a great fireplace, beautiful hickory hardwood floors, and an amazing set of Indonesian doors.  But let's get to the crown jewel of the home. . .

    Up the turret we go!

    Up here, we have a fantastic roof-top lounge with 360-degree views.  But wait, there's more. . .

    Just jog down a few steps and you'll find the roof-top outdoor shower, jacuzzi tub, wet bar, and gas fire pit.

    She sure would have to sell a lot of seashells down by the seashore to afford this 4 bed, 4.5 bath green home.

    What do you think?  Is it worth 2,995,000 clams?
