A new listing in Venice, California, comes with a slice of local history and a whole lot of vintage charm. Dating back to the early years of the beachside town, the 1913 bungalow sits on what was originally a peninsula between Aldebaran and Lion Canals—two waterholes later filled in to make streets for the automobile age. Today, the home retains its prime location along what is now Market Street, just blocks from popular cafes and the world-famous Venice Beach Boardwalk.
The two-bedroom Craftsman, billed as a "Sears Catalog" home, certainly retains the charm of its century-old existence. In typical bungalow style, a covered front porch welcomes visitors into a large living room that flows into a dining room and kitchen along one half of the narrow and deep layout. Casement windows wrap around the interior, which is also decked out in thick molding and hardwood floors.
The home has been updated throughout the years, adding modern conveniences while retaining period touches. Most recently, the farm-style kitchen was remodeled to mix colorful cabinetry with vintage appliances and furniture. A one-car garage now doubles as a studio while a rooftop deck expands the outdoor entertaining options. Scroll ahead to see more of this historic property, currently listed for $2,225,000.
