Description

An incredible opportunity in Venice for one of the most coveted properties in Venice. The Bridge House designed by Charles Ward has arrived. Located on one of Venice's most desired streets, just off Abbot Kinney, this architectural compound (formerly owned by Jay Griffith) sits on an extra-large unobstructed Northeast corner lot and has been brilliantly executed to celebrate a timeless history with a modern design. A completely reimagined sanctuary, The Bridge House has been carefully curated to foster creativity, celebrate and integrate indoor/outdoor living, and embrace the light of the day as it travels through the compound and into the space. About this home: As you enter this natural sanctuary you will be greeted by the bamboo landscape and meadow gardens throughout the property. The mid-century exterior of the original home has been at once preserved and seamlessly integrated with the modern design. The ADU is an attached 1 Bedroom/1 Bathroom separate area skirted by an ample deck and smaller bamboo garden. Usable either as an office, bedroom, guesthouse, or rental space, it is encompassed by warm tones, plaster walls, sliding glass partitions, a polished concrete bathroom and kitchen area, fireplace, and a custom-made bed by the seller himself - a prolific Internationally known artist. The magic continues through the walkway oasis to the famed Bridge House. As you enter you will be taken in by the original, exposed, cathedral ceiling, an abundance of natural light, and the windows and doors that surround it and look out into the landscape's lush greenery. With a spacious gourmet kitchen that blends into the main living area, this great room is set up perfectly to provide comfort for your guests, friends, and family, and offers a creative haven for reflection, work, or dancing to your favorite rhythms. As you ascend the stairs you first encounter the 'tatami nook' - a dedicated landing space perfect for meditating, reading, relaxing by day, or well into the night. A few steps up and the hallway unfolds with ample space for hanging art. Proceeding you'll find three, bedroom towers, each creatively designed with lofts above the space for multi-purpose use as a sleeping sanctuary, office, and/or play space. Each of the first two bedrooms also has its designated balcony area perfect for reading and sunbathing. The primary bedroom boasts a clerestory window perfect for viewing the sunset; and at night, when the tide is high, you can often hear the surf from its sleeping loft. The entire compound is surrounded by bamboo that rustles in the winds and creates a show of light, shadow, and color throughout the house. The 40' pavilion created by the bridge to preserve outdoor space, looks out at a beautifully landscaped garden of berms, stone, grasslands, and a water feature, creating layers of privacy and sanctuary, and a cooling oasis to dine or relax. The Palms & Shell house is at once elegant and warm, private and accessible, and by design preserves the architectural history of Venice while heralding its future.
