Venice loft for sale at $4.2 million is in what were once newspaper offices

This Venice artist loft for sale at $4.2 million, or lease at $15,000 a month, is in a century-old building that used to house the Vanguard newspaper.

The 3,945-square-foot residence, one of two in the Art Deco building, was leased out last year at $10,000 a month. A decade earlier, it rented at $2,400 a month.

Concrete floors, exposed ducts, glass brick and an open-beamed ceiling add an industrial vibe.

One of two units on the corner lot, the loft features a great room, a den/office, a loft, three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms plus a treehouse. There’s a fireplace in the second-floor master suite, which opens to a balcony. A third-floor bedroom opens to a roof deck.

On the ground floor, glass doors open to a deck with a seating area.

An attached art studio/office includes a kitchenette and a half-bath. The studio has a separate entrance.

The Venice Vanguard, a daily that published from 1911 to 1940, was the beach city’s first newspaper.

Tami Pardee of Pardee Properties is the listing agent.
