Is there anywhere in LA that's more charming than the Venice Canals? And now that the canals are getting plugged, perhaps they won't be malaria-ridden swamp pools. Now on the market - this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath house right on the canals. According to the listing, the house featured hardwood floors in the kitchen, dining and living rooms, a vaulted beamed ceiling in the living room, and all of the bedrooms have their own balcony. The listing does admit, however, the house needs "some updating." Price for a slice of canal life: $2.1 million.
