Director-producer Jesse Bochco has bought a newly erected home in Venice’s President’s Row neighborhood for $3.778 million, or about $30,000 over the asking price.

The two-story home, designed and built by developer Wylan/James, features a polished modern interior filled with high ceilings, clean lines and indoor-outdoor living spaces.

The kitchen — a two-story space with Corian countertops and a massive center island/bar, serves as a focal point on the main floor. A living room with a wall fireplace and a dining area adjoin the kitchen. From there, pocketing doors unfold to a courtyard with a fire pit.


Upstairs, there are two en suite bedrooms and the master suite, a bright space with a walk-in closet and balcony. The 3,219-square-foot floor plan holds four bedrooms and four bathrooms in all.

In typical Venice fashion, a rooftop deck with treetop views caps off the home.

Mark Kitching of Pacific Union International held the listing. Tami and Katie Pardee of Halton Pardee and Partners represented Bochco, according to the MLS.

The 43-year-old Bochco has directed episodes of dramas “Raising the Bar,” “Murder in the First” and Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” the most recent of which aired in March. On the production side, his credits include “NYPD Blue” and “Philly.”


He is the son of late Emmy-winning producer-writer Steven Bochco and actress Barbara Bosson.
