Finding serenity in a 1950s Venice bungalow

This Venice bungalow takes the concept of do-it-yourself projects to a whole new level. When renovating the 1950s home, a former owner learned how to use computer-aided design software to realize his vision.

Taking its cues from Scandinavian design, the fenced and gated home is unapologetic in its clean composition. Smooth plaster walls and bleached French oak floors give the interior a calming feel. Outside, olive trees and simple grasses surround a small swimming pool and decking.

Location: 2328 Glencoe Ave., Venice, 90291

Asking price: $3.895 million
