Nowadays you see a lot of dogs in listings and even the occasional cat or goat (out in Malibu). But you don't often see ducks. That's how we know we must be on the Venice canals--this house right on the water even has "A huge arched window [that] affords an idyllic view of the canal and the ducks swimming by." The three-bedroom main house has multiple fireplaces, dining room, and a master suite with sitting room and terrace. The property also has a one-bedroom cottage with kitchen and bathroom, parking for six cars, and an "outdoor dining arbor." Duck adjacency doesn't come cheap, though--asking price is $3.65 million.
