Home Of The Week: L.A. Times ‘Hot Property’ Caters To A Live-Work Lifestyle in Venice


High ceilings with exposed ductwork and skylights, modern fixtures, and open spaces traditionally scream loft-style living, yet less obvious within this two-bedroom, one bathroom home is its rare locale in the Oxford Triangle section of Venice, only a few hundred yards from the water. Chosen as a Los Angeles Times ‘Hot Property’, the dynamic space is currently owned by acclaimed singer-songwriter actress Ester Dean, who has collaborated with such artists as Katy Perry, Beyonce, and Rihanna and who converted the unit into a recording/production space.

Offering only 30 units, the Silicon Beach Lofts are ideally situated mere steps from the world’s largest man-made marina and a 30-mile beach bike path, as well as Abbot-Kinney’s world-renowned shopping/dining scene and the over 500 tech start-ups that make-up Silicon Beach, permitting residents with the opportunity to work, live, and play without venturing too far.

This property, located at 1046 Princeton Drive, is listed with Partners Trust Team Segal & Ojeda and offered at $1,349,000.


Upon being introduced to this 2,203 sq. ft. loft, one is absorbed by its artistic flair, a sensibility that is further captured by the eclectic light pendants suspended along the room’s high vaulted ceilings. Beyond acting as a central gathering space, this living area offers a full view of the home’s beautiful kitchen.


Completely polished and offering an eat-in bar that can comfortably seat four, this gallery-style kitchen is outfitted in the latest Viking, Sub-Zero, and Wolf appliances, as well as marble countertops and Kohler finishes. The cabinetry features frosted doors and is raised to provide extra counter space.


Located around the corner from the kitchen is a generously-sized hallway that currently doubles as an added workspace with bar seating. To the left is a door that leads into a full bathroom featuring dual floating vanities, glass-enclosed shower, marble-clad tub, and crisp white subway tiles to flush out the room’s look.


Impressive steel-frame glass doors invite one to enjoy this spacious living area complete with pendant lights, vaulted wood ceilings, and engineered flooring.

Located immediately off the entry is this industrial-style staircase, its design adding to the home’s contemporary, urban vibe. The wide width of the landing provides one with ample space to set-up an accessory office or creative nook. Wall space overhead offers an opportune place to display artwork while doors on either side invite one into the upper-level living spaces.  


Situated on the upper-level are rooms that are currently being used as a lounge room and a recording studio/production studio. Future buyers are advised that there are no actual bedrooms with closets, as this unit was converted to satisfy the current owner, a singer-songwriter actress. That said, there are likely relatively easy solutions for modifying the unit back to a more live-in ready space as most owners will modify loft spaces to fit their individual needs.
