The front unit of this duplex was the family home of the current owner for over 40 years. Originally a single level home, when their large family outgrew it in the 80s, they added a second story and reconfigured the unit to meet the needs of their growing family. The kitchen, dining room, living room with balcony and a sitting room were all added upstairs. Downstairs, with its 10 ft ceilings, they created 4 bedrooms and enlarged the bathroom along with a large family room as well as a laundry area in the hallway. There is peaceful greenery outside of every window and you can't help feel the warmth that emanates from within these walls. The back unit is a small 3 bedroom, one bath home with hardwood floors and is easily rented. There is a laundry area in the garage for the use of the back tenant. This property sits in a desirable area of Venice where you can usually park on the street and yet you are close enough to take in the local flavor of Abbot Kenney Blvd. There is alley access at the back of the lot to the oversized 2 car garage and parking pad for several cars. There is also a built-in brick BBQ and a patio area in the back. This could be your dream investment property or check with the city to see what you can build. Both units will be delivered vacant.
