He spent a few years renovating and remodeling the two houses in Venice. King wanted the compound to reflect a beachfront theme. It has heated sandstone floors, rooms that face the sky, and the downstairs is decorated with an aquatic theme. Outside, he has added an outdoor pool, spa, and pool house.

He enjoyed living in the house, entertaining, and having house guests. The property is listed with Bulldog Realtors.

Open Floor Plan For Some Rooms

The living room, kitchen, and dining room have an open floor plan that gives the compound a spacious look. The sliding glass doors let you view the outdoor property, giving the illusion of being outdoors. In some rooms, the sliding glass doors give the appearance of wide-open spaces.

The outdoor deck has a small pond, comfortable outdoor chairs, plants, and a table that seats eight people. It is across from the outdoor pool.

The indoor kitchen has walnut cabinets for storing kitchenware and staple foods, a breakfast island with a raised eating area and bar stools, a large butler’s pantry for storage, two wine refrigerators, and high-end Bosch appliances. The kitchen has black countertops that go well with the walnut cabinets.

The dining area has a contemporary rectangular table with blue upholstered chairs with brass legs. It overlooks the outdoor pool that can be seen through the glass doors. The primary bedroom has a carpeted floor and a spectacular outdoor view. There is a balcony overlooking the pool with comfortable lounge chairs and a railing. 

Detached Building and Guest Room

A detached building has a guest room in the upper part and the lower part is used as a pool house. The guest house has a platform bed, a vaulted ceiling, built-in desks, decorative art, wallpaper, and plants. The guest room has a small kitchenette and the living room area is decorated with gray counters and ottomans. It is an ideal space for an artist or creative person to live in. 

An Outdoor Pool And Outdoor Kitchen

Outdoors, the property has a large outdoor pool, outdoor barbecue kitchen, and fire pit with sofa and chairs. The pool has lights for swimming in the late evening. The reason that Johnathan King is selling his compound is that he wants to downsize.

His home is found near the beach and boardwalk in Venice, an ideal place where well-known artists and stars are known to live and vacation. Tourists often visit hoping to see them at restaurants, shops, or bars. His home has a big focus on privacy and a natural beach setting.

It has six bathrooms, four bedrooms, and a media room for indoor entertainment. It can be ideal for several artists or entertainers to live.
