Pop Goddess Cher has just listed her modest Venice, CA home for $1,899,500. Property records show that Cher purchased this home on May 13, 2010 for $1,542,500. Located in the heart of the seaside town of Venice and walking distance to the hip and happening Main street and Abbot Kinney area, the home has what most people look for – location, location, location! Totally remodeled, the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 1,808 square-foot home has modern architecture with high ceilings, sliding glass walls and top-of-the-line finishes throughout.
The master suite comes complete with a fireplace and large walk-in closet. A Venice Beach ‘must-have,’ the home has a rooftop deck with built-in-barbeque, sink and refrigerator.
Overall, Cher’s Venice spread is sleek, contemporary and warm. These days, Cher has been making moves to downside her over-the-top life. In February, the Diva put her Hollywood condo on the market for $5.5 million. According to industry insiders, Cher still has her incredible cliff-top Malibu estate on the Pacific Coast Highway secretly on the market as a ‘pocket listing’ after failing to sell it for $41 million back in 2009.

Creator of home decor brand Shabby Chic
2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, office, artist's studio and garden
Rachel Ashwell, the famous interior designer and creator of well-loved Shabby Chic home decor brand has just purchased a brand new cottage home in the heart of Venice, CA. It’s more Chic than it is Shabby, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and office and artist’s studio with walls of windows looking out onto a lush and colorful garden. Very true to the Shabby Chic brand, the home has an inviting white exterior and a white picket fence. The interior is bathed in pastels and features well-worn fixtures. No doubt Ashwell will take this tiny Venice treasure and bathe it in her signature home decor style of beautiful imperfection.
When it comes to her home style, Ashwell says, “my thoughts about decorating are that a home can be truly lived in and still be lovely. I believe in cozy relaxed settings where kids are free to put their feet on the sofa and guests can place their cups on the coffee table without a care. For me, the secret to living well is to surround myself with beautiful things that are practical and deliciously comfortable.”
Her new Venice cottage is just two blocks to Abbot Kinney, dubbed “the coolest block in America” by GQ magazine. This home is storied in the Venice area, as it’s been a stop on The Venice Garden Tour, The Venice Art Walk and even gained national recognition in numerous home decor and cottage magazines.
If you were concerned that Ashwell wouldn’t have enough rooms to decorate in this tiny cottage, never fear. She also owns another Los Angeles-area home. She purchased a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3,276 square foot home in October 2007 for $4.15M.
Not too Shabby.
