Manhattan Beach house description

Wake up to the sound of waves crashing on the beach, grab your surfboard and walk down to the best surf spot in the South Bay. Or simply breath in the fresh ocean air and relish the fabulous perfect sunny weather and laid back attitude that Southern California is famous for. There are also great restaurants within walking distance and a Strand that runs north and south for 26 miles along the beach. If you like to be active, you won't need a car!

Our cozy duplex was built in 1932 and remodeled over the past few years but we've managed to keep all the charming elements. In May 2010, we hired an interior designer to refurnish everything down to the silverware. There's a luxurious pillow-top queen mattress in the master bedroom with high end linens. Leather furniture throughout the family room. Fully stocked kitchen with everything you'll need to create a fantastic meal. 2 flat screen LCD HD TV's and Verizon FIOS high speed cable and wireless internet. The bathroom was remodeled with a favorite spa in mind. The walk in shower includes dual shower heads, body jets and river rocks to massage your feet. There are hardwood and travertine floors throughout. The second bedroom includes a twin size trundle bed.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: My husband and I currently live bi-coastally - we spend most of the year in Florida and head out to our Manhattan Beach bungalow in the summer. The rest of the year, we like to share our beach pad with other families either relocating to the area, on extended vacations or short business contracts. We are excited about sharing our home with you!

              Why the Owner Chose Manhattan Beach:
              Ever since I moved to the South Bay in 1999, I fell in love with it. The locals are fantastic. The lifestyle is perfect. After working all week, I would park my car on Friday and it wouldn't move all weekend. I have great memories of rollerblading on the Strand with my 2 dogs. We would meet up with friends and eat/drink at the local restaurants in downtown Manhattan Beach. The weather couldn't be any better and the beaches are beautiful.
