Manhattan Beach house description

Enjoy the ultimate LA luxury vacation in this beautiful custom home featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. This gorgeous, family-friendly home boasts a gourmet kitchen, home theater, wine cellar, dining room that seats 12, and a beautiful outdoor entertaining area. With beach-inspired colors and over-sized windows and French doors, this house offers all the brightness you would expect in a California dream home. With its comfort and amenities, it would be easy to spend your vacation inside the house, but with a beautiful beach just 5 blocks away and boutique shopping and gourmet restaurants within a 10-minute stroll, there is plenty to keep you busy outside the house, too.

When you first arrive, you’re greeted with a charming Dutch door and unique design features such as 200-year old reclaimed wood floors and a rounded staircase that is open to all three stories. The spacious floor plan and custom furniture are designed to be comfortable for entertaining or just lounging with family and friends.

The huge gourmet kitchen features everything a cook could desire: double ovens, warming drawer, two dishwashers, and a six-burner cook top and griddle. Included in the great room is an eat-in area, bar seating and a flat screen TV over the stone fireplace. The family room and home office both feature Mac computers and there is 50MB FIOS fiber internet service and wifi throughout the house.

The Master Suite features a king size bed and a balcony with French Doors overlooking the backyard. The master bath features a huge, two-person walk in shower, double sinks and an over-sized Jacuzzi bathtub. There is also a fireplace that is open between the bath and master bedroom.

The two kids’ bedrooms feature vaulted ceilings and share a jack-and-jill bathroom with double vanities and a separate tub/shower. One bedroom has twin bunk beds with a trundle (sleeps 3); the other has a twin bed with a trundle (sleeps 2). There is a third bedroom upstairs with its own bathroom that we currently use as a playroom. It can, however, easily accommodate a queen Aerobed, which we are happy to provide if requested.

The beach-themed detached guest house is it’s own sanctuary. It has a separate king-size bedroom with private bath. The kitchenette has a microwave, 2 gas burners, dishwasher, coffeemaker and refrigerator/freezer. There is a dining table to seat 4, along with a small seating area with comfortable furniture. The guest house has TVs in both the living area and bedroom.

The home theater features a 10-foot screen with a high-definition projector. Two 32” flat panel TVs on either side allow sports fans the ability to watch multiple games simultaneously. There are 7 fully-reclining theater seats and comfortable bench seating in the back to accommodate larger viewing parties. Feel free to use the movie-theater popcorn machine to complete your cinematic experience! We also have both a Wii and PS3 units for entertaining big and small kids.

The landscaped backyard includes a built-in barbeque with granite counter tops and bar seating. There is a dining table for 6 and a stone fire pit, perfect for enjoying s’mores with the family.

We’re happy to provide 4 adult beach cruisers and 3 kids’ bikes for you to use to explore our seaside strand, which allows you to ride the beautiful coastline for miles on end. LA guidebooks are also available at the house for you to consider all the attractions of greater Los Angeles, all within an hour’s drive. We also have beach chairs and umbrellas you can take for your outings.

If you’d like, we can offer assistance in arranging service for anything from grocery shopping to babysitting , just let us know how we can help make your stay the most enjoyable.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We're a family of five who thoroughly enjoy living in Manhattan Beach. We love the convenience of being 10 minutes from LAX and within a short drive of LA's many attractions while living in a quaint town of 30,000, where we know all our neighbors and our kids walk to school. We designed our house with family living and entertaining in mind and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. As our kids have gotten older, we are rekindling our love of travel and opening our home to others is allowing us to enjoy that even more.

                  Why the Owner Chose Manhattan Beach:
                  Joe purchased a small house on the lot where our current home is located in 1998. When we got married and decided we needed a larger home to start a family we looked throughout Manhattan Beach to find a suitable home but decided we couldn't part with our amazing location, so we decided to build a custom home on the same lot. Construction began in 2003 and nearly two years later we completed our dream home. Nestled in a quiet but friendly neighborhood, we're close enough to walk to the beach and downtown, but also get a bit of privacy with a yard. Having a park around the corner has been a wonderful treat for our kids, as well.
