Move in Next to Californication’s Hank Moody in This Industrial-Style Loft in Venice, CA

If you’re a die-hard Californication fan with a sizable real estate budget, here’s one opportunity you won’t want to let go to waste: a loft has recently come to market right next to Hank Moody’s fictional home in the popular Showcase series.

The modern loft with panoramic ocean views is set at 25 Brooks Ave in Venice, neighboring Hank Moody’s crib from the popular 7-season series (26 Brooks Ave served as filming location for the troubled novelist’s Los Angeles digs). But there’s much more to love about this loft beyond its association with the hit TV show.

The loft has a pull-up garage door window

Designed by award-winning local architect Steven Ehrlich, the 2-bed, 3-bath loft has open, airy interiors with soaring ceilings and industrial-style ceilings with exposed ductwork. Its light-filled living room has been fitted with polished concrete floors, expansive windows, a large fireplace and a pull-up garage door window that brings the outside ocean air in.

There’s a 2-and-a-half-story art wall right in the middle

Right between the living space and the kitchen, there’s a striking 2.5-story art wall that’s visible from every room of the loft condo. This adds to the artsy appeal of the unique abode, making it the perfect choice for art aficionados (or creative types of the Hank Moody variety).

The bedroom is suspended over the living room

Aiming for that New York-loft vibe, the master suite is suspended over the living room, overlooking the rest of the space — with direct view of the 2.5-story art wall. The bedroom has been fitted with a showroom closet and large master balcony. As the listing rightfully points out, both bedrooms offer the option for communal living with no walls or complete privacy by closing the dividers.

The place is great for entertaining guests

The open floor sees the living room open up into the dining room and kitchen, which makes it all one large space for get-togethers (of course, once they become the norm again and we’re done with our current hermit lifestyle). The custom-made chef’s kitchen is outfitted with Viking stove, oversized Sub-Zero fridge and custom cabinetry — to match the rest of the décor.

And while the industrial-style loft may be great for indoor entertaining, it’s the outdoor space that takes the cake. The 25 Brooks Ave unit comes with a private entertainer’s rooftop deck with corner ocean views of Catalina and Point Dume. In a Hank Moody-esque twist, there’s also a sunset facing soaking tub on the rooftop deck (you know, for those times when the party ends with someone getting drunk as a skunk and falling asleep in the bath tub).

Just steps off the Venice boardwalk

The 1,844-square-foot loft isn’t only close to filming locations; its address places it just moments from the beach, as well as the Venice Boardwalk, Abbot Kinney and Rose Avenue.

To buy into 25 Brooks Ave, it’ll cost you $2,440,000. The Agency’s Jagger Kroener and Michael Grady hold the listing.

Extreme Makeover’s Ty Pennington Lists Bright and Beautiful Venice Beach Home

Reality TV star Ty Pennington, known for changing people’s lives with his energetic personality on the original version of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, is now looking to cash in on his own home makeover. Pennington has just listed his house — a beautiful and bright 1927 Craftsman in Venice, Calif. — for $2,795,000.

Pennington put his home design expertise to good use and carefully restored the property earlier this year with the help of his trusted interior designer, Patrick Delanty. Delanty, also known to be Halle Berry’s designer, has long been working alongside Ty Pennington, serving as his design director for Extreme Makeover and running his on-air design segments, most notably his presence on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Rachel Ray Show, NBC’s Nightline and Good Morning America.

Just like its reality TV star owner, the home is bright, cheerful and quirky, with colorful interiors exuding creativity and style. The property is listed by Patrice Meepos of Compass.

Tucked away on a one-way street near the beach, Venice Boardwalk, canals and Abbot Kinney’s hot spots, the original 1927 dwelling has 3 beds, 3 baths, and a sizable living room with decorative fireplace, along with a sunken family room with large windows overlooking a newly landscaped, private back yard with koi pond.

The ground level hosts the kitchen, laundry room, and bedroom with direct backyard access, as well as a full bath. On the upper level, there’s a master retreat and a second bedroom. 

Ty Pennington added quite a few special touches to the 2,102-square-foot home, including bamboo flooring, baths adorned in vintage-inspired ceramic tile, a master bath sporting a standalone shower and an antique cast-iron freestanding tub, kitchen with concrete countertops and a wraparound, porcelain-tiled porch. There’s also a beautiful backyard that looks like a great place to entertain guests.

While Ty Pennington did not return to host HGTV’s 2020 version of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (which is hosted by Modern Family‘s Jesse Tyler Ferguson), you can catch the two time Emmy award winner in his other home improvement series, Trading Spaces — which recently restarted airing after a 10-year hiatus.

You can also get more tips from the home design expert from his latest book, Good Design Can Change Your Life, which is an intimate look at Ty’s design inspirations and is full of décor advice and tips. While we haven’t yet had the chance to pick up the book ourselves, according to his website the book is part reference, and part behind-the-scenes from Ty’s own home remodeling, which means the Venice home is already a bookshelf hit.
