This rare Artist in Residence Live/Work compound in the heart of Venice Beach is perfect for a creative entrepreneur or investor who loves light-filled architecture, open interior space, and privacy. Designed by award winning and much lauded California architect and educator, David Ming-Li Lowe, the property is located steps from the world famous Boardwalk and the trendiest shops and restaurants on Abbot Kinney Blvd. The property is defined by two three-story buildings front and back, each overlooking an ultra private landscaped courtyard. These buildings are framed entirely with structural steel, with exposed posts, beams and cross bracing, which are a major design element on each floor. Translucent Kalwall building panels highlight the changing light throughout the day, and become glowing walls to the exterior at night. A three car garage with high ceilings and large industrial roll up doors make this space perfect for a workshop, storage or artists studio. The open floor plans allow for any kind of office/living space configuration, which makes this property ideal for any usage by an owner/user. Its perfect for use as an office for a production or animation studio, tech startup, architect/design firm, etc. Alternatively, an investor can look to achieve a 4.32% proforma CAP rate in a very competitive Venice marketplace. It is a true original Venice Beach artist loft that embodies the ideal California lifestyle. *Buyer to verify square footage and perform their own inspections, as there may be unpermitted improvements on the premises.
