Homes in this Venice neighborhood include Mission Revival, 50s ranch-style houses, and bungalows from the 20s to 40s. A small number of turn-of-the-20th-century two story Prairie-style homes sit on quarter-acre lots on Harding Ave. Most older homes in President’s Row have been restored with elegant landscaping including smaller and larger Craftsman-style bungalows. New construction features eco-friendly and one-of-a-kind contemporary architectural gems. Lot sizes in President’s Row may be larger than many other areas of Venice.
Some of Venice’s top schools are located within the boundaries of President’s Row, including Coeur D’Alene Elementary School. Restaurants along Washington Blvd. include casual favorites like 26 Beach and Firestone Walker Brewing Company. President’s Row is walkable and within easy access of Abbot Kinney’s boutiques and hot new eateries like Gjelina. President’s Row is also a quick bike ride from the Marina, Muscle Beach, and the Boardwalk. The neighborhood’s walkability rating is high and it’s also bicycle-friendly, not just based on ratings but also on the number of bicycle shops nearby on Lincoln Blvd. and Abbot Kinney.
