Venice Private Residence

By enclosing the front yard with a fence, gate and hedge, this 5,000 square foot lot just blocks from the Venice Pier has been transformed into a Southern California oasis. The front porch was extended by 70 square feet and is now a perfect place for relaxing at any hour of the day. The lacey hedge shimmers with the constant sea breeze and provides both privacy and security while still allowing for people-watching from within. It is from the front porch, the back porch and outside each window that a colorful selection of water-wise, native and adapted plants can be enjoyed throughout much of the year.
