An Uplifting Venice Beach Home Geared for Outdoor Living Seeks $4.64M

Acclaimed architect Noah Walker gives an unassuming California bungalow bright, soaring interiors.

Wearing the facade of a 1910 California bungalow, the Broadway House is proof that first impressions can be deceiving. Designed by Walker Workshop’s Noah Walker, the architect behind the impressive Oak Pass House, this 3,812-square-foot home located in the heart of Venice Beach integrates the front of the original craftsman with contemporary architecture that is a mix of sleek angles, warm wood accents, and lots of glass.  

The outdoor deck is perfect for al fresco dining. 

A soaring, double-height ceiling accommodates an airy great room and a loft-like, second-story sitting room in this four-bed, four-and-a-half-bath residence. Expansive glazing, light wood flooring and millwork, and open spaces that move fluidly from indoors to out keep the Broadway House feeling both fresh and serene. Listing agent Mick Partridge sums it up: "Noah was able to maximize the space effortlessly by capturing a seamless, indoor/outdoor flow that speaks to the quintessential California lifestyle."

The open-plan living space has a soaring, double-height ceiling and a wall of glass with telescoping sliding doors that open to an inner courtyard. In the open kitchen, a large island is wrapped with beautiful Grigio Collemandia marble—there's also ample storage and a cozy built-in breakfast nook.

The great room features built-in, back-lit shelving and a retro, hanging fireplace. 

A bench at the home's entry. 

The second level has a loft-like sitting room that is awash in natural light.

One of the guest bathrooms features moody, indigo watercolor-like wallpaper. 

The spacious master bedroom benefits from vaulted ceilings.

The master bedroom also has its own personal outdoor terrace and lots of natural light. 

The spa-like master bathroom has a classic material palette that includes book-matched marble and light wood. 

A fully finished garage serves as a bonus room.

Sliding glass doors open to decking and patio space to extend the home’s footprint outdoors creating an ideal space for entertaining.

The facade of the original bungalow remains, but with hardly a hint of what lies behind. 

665 Broadway Street, Venice, is currently listed for $4,640,000 by Mick Partridge of Hyland and Hyland and Justin Alexander of Compass.
