The interior designer Kim Gordon is ranked among the Hollywood Reporter’s Top 20 Interior Designers—a list full of brilliant decor experts accustomed to the whims of celebrity clients.
Those experts charge hefty amounts for their services, and rightfully so. But a buyer can now score an original Gordon design without waiting for a spot to open up on her schedule—she’s now selling her own home in Venice, CA, for $4.45 million.
Gordon is known for a clean and modern style that blends in plenty of color and charm. This four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home is her signature canvas and has been celebrated in publications like Cottages & Gardens and the Los Angeles Times.
Located south of Abbot Kinney, near the Marina Del Rey/Venice border, the invitingclose to The Ritz Carlton Marina del Rey, the beach, recreational boat docks, and one of the most popular and scenic bike paths in all California.
So it makes perfect sense that Gordon’s home has a Zen, beachy vibe, with light flowing in from all directions through iron-framed windows that encourages the foliage indoors to flourish.
Gordon has been busy perfecting the house ever since she bought the property in 2014, for $1.15 million.
Once you enter the property through a private redwood gate, you’ll walk right into a lovely front yard garden and patio, with comfy, built-in seating. The seating area is accompanied by an outdoor fireplace, and canopied by mature pepper and citrus trees.
Inside, the floors are limestone, the ceilings are high, and the walls are gleaming white.
Naturally, the floor plan is wide open, and extends from the front of the house to the back. The seamless transition out to the backyard leads to an outdoor space highlighted by a stone-lined pool and spa, a conversation area with a fire pit, and a lovely al fresco dining area.
On your way to the backyard, you’ll pass the dining area and a chic modern kitchen with both a peninsula and a 10-foot-long island. You can dine either at the counter or at the dining room table nearby. The kitchen is also outfitted with Wolf appliances and other top-of-the-line chef’s accoutrements.
Upstairs, high ceilings tower over multiple built-in cabinets and shelves. The four bedrooms each feature their own private balconies, and the master suite bathroom area is centered on an air-chromotherapy tub and dual steam shower.
Gordon, who describes herself as a curator of “wellness living,” has been featured in the L.A. Times, Elle Decor, California Home + Design and numerous other publications.
She began her professional career as an artist, and segued into interior design, specializing in custom homes created for open, functional living.
