102 Paloma Ave. is one block from the world-famous Venice Beach and Boardwalk near its Santa Monica end. It consists of two buildings on the corner of Paloma and Pacific Ave. The house entrance faces Paloma which is a walkway while the building containing the two apartments is at 504 Pacific Ave. The buildings are well-known in the area for their bright aqua color which fits well with eclectic blend of artists, surfers, and young professionals who want to make Venice their home. The house is surrounded by a redwood privacy fence. Like many of the properties in the area, there is no on-site parking. A wide variety of restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance, and major public bus routes go down nearby Main Street. Three UCLA grad students shared the house at one point, and all took the bus to campus. For those not familiar with Venice, it has been a major beach resort since 1905 when Abbott Kinney developed it as the "Venice of America" complete with canals and gondolas. In recent years, it has become a Mecca for members of the film and television community including writers, directors, and (Yes) actresses. They are proud to be a part of this laid-back community, but still have access to the very latest in cutting-edge shops and restaurants.
