Aber Whitcomb, a co-founder of the social network Myspace, is looking to connect with a buyer in Venice. He’s put his house in the Marina Peninsula area up for sale at $3.3 million.
The multi-story home, originally built in 1928 and since renovated and expanded, offers an eclectic mix of classic and contemporary styles.
Details of note include walls of glass doors and windows, arched doorways and rolled and vaulted ceilings. Painted beams and accent walls provide visual interest in other parts of the 1,839-square-foot home, while a modern steel staircase connects each floor.
Among common areas is a living room with a painted vintage fireplace, a pink-hued dining room and a modern kitchen. Skylights top a light-filled family room area, which opens to a courtyard.
Occupying the entire second floor, the monochromatic master suite has a fireplace and a balcony with a view of the coastline and Venice Pier. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms in all.
A rooftop deck with a built-in bar, a wine fridge and a fire pit completes the laid-back setting.
Whitcomb, who last year sold another home in Hollywood Hills, bought the house a decade ago for $2.45 million.
Kerry Ann Sullivan and Tami Pardee of Halton Pardee and Partners hold the listing.
Since leaving Myspace, where he served as the chief technology officer until 2009, Whitcomb has ventured into online gaming, co-founding Los Angeles-based company Social Gaming Network, formerly known as MindJolt. He is also a co-founder of the start-up incubator i/o Ventures.
