Do you know where the world’s smallest front yard is?

Well, if you were not sure, let me tell you, it is in Venice, CA. close to the ocean north of Washington Blvd.  Millions of tourist and even locals often walk by and are amazed. It is probably one of the most photographed front yards in the greater Los Angeles area.

Ocean View Homes in Venice CA Endre Barath

We decided to take the afternoon off and give ourselves a well deserved brake. We went for a stroll on the beach. So on the way back we decided to walk on the walkway in front of the homes.

Most people who live here consider the beach as their back yard and put up with the nuisance of everyone walking by their homes. Others have some fun with it. That is the category I would place this home owner

Love it!! I did NOT know where the smallest front yard in the world is - now I do! I'd say that the owners of this house both know how to make lemonade out of a lemon AND have a great sense of humor!

Thanks for the laugh - and valuable trivia!

Smallest front yard or not, he still has a fabulous view!  I want to look into his back yard to see how small it really is.  I'm sure it's still better to have a small yard than not!

Endre -- I am sure there would be many homeowners who would gladly trade a much larger front yard for this Venice property.

That is a new one. Do they have the world's smallest lawn mower or do they use scissors?

That's pretty funny, Endre. Is that real grass or artificial turf? Price per SF of land must be exhorbitant

It's always funny what people will do when land is at a premium to have a little bit of comfort or normalcy.  Just having a small patch of yard to call your own means a lot.
