In 1924, most of the canals were filled because the city needed more roads. In that year, all but the remaining 6 canals that are left today were filled. Today, a few blocks of the canals still remain and you can walk along them in the area between the streets Washington, South Venice Blvd, Pacific Ave, and Ocean Ave.
Some of West Los Angeles' most beautiful and luxurious multi-million dollar homes lie along the remaining canals. Most of these homes have their own docks and boats they can take on the water. Each canal has a few bridges that connect the two times. Although all of the bridges are very similar, each seems to be slightly unique.
There are currently 5 properties on the canals for sale and 5 properties for lease, all with amazing views right on the canals! There are four single-family homes priced at $2.1 million, $2.249 million, $3.2 million, $5.25 million (an amazing contemporary masterpiece), and $6.5 million. There is also a 2 unit (8 bedrooms total) income-produce/investment/rental property listed at $3.2 million. Lastly, there are 5 properties available for lease priced at $8,450/month, $8,950/month, $12,000/month, $14,500/month, and $15,000/month.
