Name: Philip Dixon
Location: Venice
Size: 6,000 square feet
Years lived in: 20 years
Inspiration: Travel

Talk about an escape! You would never think that this 6,000 square foot compound was right in the middle of the crowded streets of Venice Beach. Inspired by his trips around the world shooting fashion spreads, Philip Dixon created this Moroccan retreat almost 20 years ago. The walls of the compound are so high that all you see are a couple of telephone poles and palm trees to clue you into your wherabaouts. Otherwise all sense of reality is suspended and you might as well be in Marakkesh. Yes, please.
