An oasis in the heart of prime Venice, let yourself be transported to a more tranquil state of being at 1046 Oakwood Ave. Reimagined by star designer Studio John Sharp, this quintessential 3 bed 2 bath Venice traditional has evolved into a lush contemporary sanctuary. Enjoy cool sunset drinks from the west-facing front porch overlooking your exquisitely xeriscaped front yard. The vaulted, beamed ceiling sitting room, bathed in the natural light of 6 skylights invites you in. A direct sightline from the front of the house to the back yard immediately captivates the eye. The kitchen and formal dining room flow seamlessly with each other, and together with the home's exterior, giving you a sense of volume and space from anywhere in the house. 3 generous bedrooms give you the freedom to configure and customize your lifestyle. Two sets of french doors, in the primary bedroom and the dining room, connect you effortlessly with the private back patio - and this is where the home truly comes alive. Step into your fully private, hedged back garden / zen spa. Sun shade sails and a natural green canopy diffuse the abundant California sunlight as you enjoy the gas fire pit with banked built-in seating, ice plunge, private outdoor shower, and Swedish cedar dry sauna. The green patio further wraps around to your built-in gas grill / outdoor cooking area just off the main kitchen. The freestanding garage has been finished and is perfect as an office or entertaining bonus room. Steps to the best of Venice yet worlds away, your private sanctuary awaits at 1046 Oakwood Ave.
