The filming location is a Venice craftsman – DIRT

Arguably, no other series in television history celebrates Venice Beach as much as “Californication.” Set and filmed on location in Dogtown, the Showtime comedy-drama serves as a virtual love letter to the colorful seaside town, with its leading man, bawdy bestselling author Hank Moody (David Duchovny), drinking, petticoating and looting. usually its way through the many bustling streets, restaurants and landmarks of the neighborhood. The scheme, which completed its seven-year run in 2014, also features some of the most fabulous properties in the borough.

And now fans have the chance to grab one of his best-known spots as the charming craftsman that Hank’s ex-wife and longtime love Karen van der Beek (Natascha McElhone) called at home for seasons six and seven just hit the market. Offered for $5.5 million, the three-story abode sits behind a white picket fence just steps from the sand (and just around the corner from the building that played Hank’s loft on the series) to 16 Park Ave. (Please remember this is a private residence. Do not enter or disturb occupants or property in any way.)

Boasting four bedrooms and three bathrooms in a spacious (especially for Venice!) 2,825 square feet, the peaked roof has all the famous pedigree to boot! As the list reveals, it was originally built in 1906 for none other than Abbot Kinney, the wealthy tobacco company heir who, seeking to create a “Venice of America” ​​in Southern California, was responsible for the development of Venice Beach. A Article from the Los Angeles Times released when the home was last put on the market in 2017 notes that Kinney had the property built as a gift to his eldest son, Thornton. Historical newspaper articles and old building records show that two of his other sons, Sherwood and Innes, also lived on the premises at various times. Karen is certainly in excellent company!
