Venice is one of those towns you have to see to fully appreciate. You need to get up close and personal. Ride a bike or skate on the boardwalk. Sink your toes into the warm sand by the shore, or rush into the breaking waves of the Pacific. Although, there’s a lot more to Venice besides its prime location. I suspect its name has something to do with the series of canals located around the Venice CA neighborhoods and homes across from Marina Del Rey. And, hundreds of homes in the area back up to these canals. What’s more, residents can travel anywhere on the canals with small, non-motorized boats. Now, that’s something you don’t often see on the west coast! The Grand Canal area also has walking paths edging the canals and a main street that acts as a promenade through its heart. Lovely!
Lovely Venice CA Neighborhoods and Homes
Yes, Venice is lovely. That’s the right word. And, like its namesake in Italy, the Mediterranean weather heightens an absolutely lovely back drop and lifestyle. In fact, Venice CA neighborhoods and homes reflect the casual, yet vibrant and engaging appeal all around. They add to the many reasons for choosing this town for living, working and playing.
Besides the Grand Canal area, where you’ll find many modest to large luxury homes, you’ll find the beach front neighborhood. It sits between Ocean Front Walk and Pacific Ave. It seems to gleam with some of the ocean’s ambiance. You’ll find a mix of commercial, multi-family and single family interests in its real estate. For those who live there, the beach, skate park, main recreation center and ocean are just steps away! Although, for anyone living in Venice, these attractions are within moments.
Past the beach and canal Venice CA neighborhoods and homes, you’ll find the large, residential area of Oakwood. Smaller enclaves of homes mark its edges. In fact, many homes in the Penmar area edge Penmar Golf Course and the Recreation Center. In all these neighborhoods, you’ll find a diversity of home types. They will range from cozy bungalows to exclusive, custom homes. Many of the newer homes are remodeled or completely re-imagined, rebuilt homes. Often, you’ll find these many choices in home types, including multi-family located on quiet, tree-lined streets, caressed by soothing ocean breezes.
