Live and Work in a Chic Space on the ‘Coolest Block in America’

Abbot Kinney has long been lauded as the epicenter of cool, and GQ magazine just made it official, naming the Venice neighborhood “The Coolest Block in America.”

Want to live and work in the middle of all things awesome? Look no further than the for-sale piece of property at 1511 Abbot Kinney Boulevard. Listed for the a very sophisticated price tag of $4,700,000, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, half retail/commercial, half single-family home is as sleek and hip as the residents who roam the street outside.

The 5,060 structure was designed by noted firm Glen Irani Architects and it’s described as “the most extraordinary contemporary-style building on the street.” Clad in beautiful dark zinc, expansive heavy-glass and one-of-a-kind window wall system, the design aims to co-exist with dignity and permanence on a boulevard of century-old historical structures. Every detail exemplifies very high architectural and craft standards for which this architect is known. Specialty finishes include Italian hardwood floors, European fixtures and appliances, Italian mosaic tile, stone paving, architectural exposed steel and more. Perfect for Venice’s be achy vibe, the property features over 700 square feet of outdoor terraces and balconies.

While designed for both commercial and residential uses, the possibilities are endless for this outstanding property located on the hottest street in Los Angeles.
