When it comes to curb appeal, we Angelenos tend to think about quick fixes like adding drought-tolerant landscaping or painting the front door an eye-catching color. But 2412 Bryan Avenue offers visual interest in every detail, from its sail-inspired louver screens to its sloped roofline and vertical wooden slat façade.

Located in Venice’s Silver Triangle neighborhood, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom new-build was constructed on an extra-deep lot that doesn’t back onto an alley — a rarity for this area. The home was custom designed by Andy Liu, principal of 10-19 Architecture, and an alum of Frank Gehry and Associates.

In addition to its distinctive exterior design, the home boasts a one-of-a-kind layout with three bedrooms and verdant lawns at ground level. Through the entry door is a long hallway with an open staircase and wide-plank hardwood flooring. The front room, staged as a light-filled home office, features a wet bar, wine fridge and an ensuite bathroom.

The two additional bedrooms on this level share a three-piece bathroom complete with a floating double vanity, combination tub and shower, and natural stone surfaces. There’s a functional laundry room with side-by-side machines, ample storage space and a utility sink, as well as an attached garage that’s wired for electric vehicle charging.

A partially-covered, two-tier deck overlooking the backyard provides a comfortable spot to sit while the kids play on the grass. Meantime, a horizontal wood fence and mature greenery help to establish privacy between neighboring homes.

Back inside, the staircase leads to an open-concept kitchen, living and dining room with soaring ceilings that reach heights of 15 feet. The design of the kitchen is minimal and refined, showcasing marble countertops and a matching backsplash, woodgrain cabinetry, paneled appliances, and matte black pendant lights above the three-seater island.

Tucked off the kitchen, the dining room is equipped with a built-in server with additional storage and counter space. The living room touts clever built-ins, including a media console and a wall-mounted shelf for displaying personal treasures.

Large sliding doors create a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor living spaces. The exterior louver screens perform double-duty, obscuring the deck from prying eyes and serving as balcony guardrails. Yet another deck is positioned opposite the staircase — this one sheltered from the elements with a skylight overhead.

At the rear of the upper level is the primary bedroom, showcasing an enormous skylight and extensive built-ins, including a floating desk and a storage bench. The reading nook features a striking corner window, while additional storage frames the entrance to the ensuite bathroom.

Covered in large slabs of gray marble, the bathroom boasts a glass-enclosed wet room with a deep soaker tub and a separate shower. Strategically-placed windows offer palm tree views as you stand beneath the rain showerhead.

Priced at $3,800,000, this 2,613-square-foot architectural home is listed by Shane Wilcox of The Agency. The future owners of 2412 Bryan Avenue will live just moments away from the shops and restaurants along Abbot Kinney, the 22-mile-long Marvin Braude Bike Trail, and the historic Venice Canals.
