This Adorable Cottage in Venice Appears to Be Doomed

New, 9 comments

Built in 1922, it's got French doors and bright skylights

It ain't easy being pretty for this charming little cottage on a Venice walk street. Built in 1922 and taking up a compact 784 square feet of space, the residence has the pleasure and misfortune of being placed on a double lot. So now, it's a "Venice Walk Street Development Opportunity" and its 7,000-square-foot lot will most likely yield something larger and more luxurious in no time at all given the hot, hot Venice market.

The cottage has French doors, lovely skylights, high ceilings, two bedrooms, and one bathroom, plus a bonus room. The compact kitchen has blue tile accents and a built-in eating area. That double lot is in use as a forest-like yard with an overgrown pergola over a back patio and no fancy landscaping, but plenty of room for a gardener to go nuts. The property is asking $4.995 million.
