ELECTRIC AVENUE

DSCN6587
If you click on this, you`ll be enjoying a little walk I took in Venice, on Electric Avenue, yesterday.
You may be surprised that this is a $25,000,000.00 set I talked about, but I was wrong.
The houses or "cracker boxes" imaged are worth from 1.25 to 2 million dollars each.
These are the back yards taken from a little walk-street right at Electric Avenue.
You may click on the video or the slide show to see them all.
I took many more but did include a 3D of "Lily`s Court in the set.
For those who can/learned how to view my "stereoscopes" I hope you like it.
We met up with some friends there & went on a walk-about.
Five points to whoever spots the little dog.

Nice area but I have to admit it doesn't bother me a bit that my house and 40 acres are worth a fraction of any one of those houses. :)

I liked the garden door (DSCN6608) and the shady, green walkway (DSCN6588) best.

The video was a good way to get hopping this morning. :)

I love the houses, but not the price tags. Egads! Way too rich for me. But the houses are SO cute!

I love the garden door too. Thanks for taking us on your walk with you!

AndiF,
I personally could never live in any one of those houses.
I shot those photos from as far as I could get away from them.
The little walkway you like is the separation between the houses on either side.
I was constantly pressed up against the fence on one side or the other of the walkway to shoot the houses. Then as you can see, there are houses right up against both sides of any house pictured, although I did try to make it not seem so.
Your 40 acres are a paradise.

Hi Beth,
The price tags were a way to say, enjoy where you are.
I can`t for the life of me figure out who would ever want to buy a house there, but many of them were bought by the old hippies when they were $40,000.00 tops, in the sixties.
Maybe I`ll go to the Venice canals one day to shoot the places there.
I have a client there from years ago & I should go visit her.
She`s a beautiful "Amazon" of a woman, who was Mohamed Ali`s wife. Layla who was also a boxer & Veronica`s daughter along with one other young girl, were all good friends of mine.
Nice talking to you Beth.

You're right, 'head. Appreciate what you have. I hope the people who bought them 40 years ago like how their neighborhood has turned out. They're gorgeous, but WAY too close together.

You have an interesting set of friends! Thanks for sharing pictures of your walk with us...

Hey, I found the little white doggie in DSCN6585

That was a nice stroll. Maybe the avenue should be named Eclectic Av, hah! When you can hand the borrowed sugar to the neighbor from one kitchen window to the other, they're too close for me.

It would take at least a golf ball loaded atop a cherry bawm in a steel pipe to reach my closest neighbor!!!

You can find houses very similar to those in the old residential neighborhoods of Fargo for $ 125-175K, nearly all with single detached garage, and buckled concrete floors and poured concrete walls in the basements, as back in the 50s they were not using proper drainage systems. (Most likely every home now has a sump pump, as the whole metro area is built on ancient and not so ancient riverbed.)

NDD,
I think you`re the only one who saw the dog, or at least no one else mentioned it.

NDD said...

I almost didn't think I'd find it, but all of a sudden he popped out.

Quite the window setup on that dormer above.
