2 - Warren Wilson Beach House

15 30th Avenue

Warren Wilson, owner and editor of the Los Angeles Daily Journal, built the Warren Wilson Beach House in 1911 as a summer home for his wife and eight children where it stood among the sand dunes south of the commercial center of Venice. Among the strong family ties to the community were the marriages of two of his daughters to two of Abbot Kinney’s sons.

The Warren Wilson Beach House is a two story 4373 square foot Craftsman Bungalow with many fine architectural elements. The exterior has a multi-gabled roof, wide overhang, stucco clad first floor, shiplap-clad second floor, porches, pergola, many sets of multi-paned casement windows and Craftsman decorative details. The interior contains many fine Craftsman details such as boxed beam ceilings, picture rails, plate rails, built-in bookcases, brick fireplaces and wide woodwork with corner block accents.

The Warren Wilson Beach House is now a bed-and-breakfast inn giving guests a visual reminder of the early days of Venice. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
