Property Description

SEASIDE CHARMER IN MANHATTAN BEACH - If you didn’t know any better, you’d think Martha Stewart lives here. One of the most charming homes in one of the most coveted locations in all of Southern California. If the walls could talk, this legacy beach home would probably have a lot to say! It was built in the early 1900s according to tax records and owned by the same family for over 50 years. The Cultural Heritage Conservancy designated the home a city Landmark in 2010 (with no building or demolition restrictions) and an award winning Showtime series filmed scenes in the front of the home a little over a decade ago. Sitting on the south side, on a full lot just 3 houses from the sand in Manhattan Beach, this home has ocean views to the north and south. As you approach, you’ll notice the lush landscaping surrounding the grassy walk street “yard” with views of sand, white water and the Pacific! Passing through the screen door you enter the open air porch perfect for relaxing or reading your favorite title. Due to its age, you will want to upgrade the home or build your own dream estate, but for now you can appreciate the wood ceilings, loads of streaming light and wood burning fireplace. The current configuration includes a first floor with formal living and dining rooms, kitchen with nook and 3/4 bath. The second floor (which used to have 5 bedrooms) has two large bedrooms and an office/third bedroom, plus a full bathroom. Around every corner inside and out are surprising alcoves and cozy spaces to soak up the good karma and dream of what this place will mean to you…Off the back alley is a three car garage. Once living here, you will adore the location just 2 short blocks from restaurants and shops and about 20 paces from putting your toes in the sand. All persons entering property must sign CAR form PEAD-ALL or PSI and review and follow the Posted Rules for Entry (C.A.R. Document PRE) guidelines.
