Transitional Craftsman remains rooted in Venice’s history

Tucked behind hedges and fences on a Venice walk street, this Transitional Craftsman was built more than a century ago by area founder and conservationist Abbot Kinney for his son, Thornton.

The breezy two-story was later renovated and expanded in 2006 by local architect Michael Hricak, who added a new wing while preserving much of the original details. Among the versatile spaces is a whitewashed living room with built-in benches around the fireplace. The rooftop deck takes in sweeping ocean views.
