Just a few short minutes from all of the community activity at nearby American Martyrs and Downtown Manhattan Beach, this gorgeous Tree Section home meets almost every “must have” item on a savvy Tree Section buyer’s list! This large custom home opens to a rotunda style foyer that leads to the formal entertaining spaces. A formal living area and a large sunny family room both access the private courtyard that lies between them, and views of the courtyard can also be enjoyed from the formal dining room. The courtyard draws tons of natural light into the home and cool beach evenings can be enjoyed by the fireside while a cheerful fountain adds to the calm ambiance.
A sizable, airy family room is directly open to the splendid custom kitchen, encouraging easy conversation and providing a great space for casual dining and entertaining. A granite topped island is at the heart of the fully loaded kitchen complete with pot sink, warming drawer, built in wine storage rack, six burner range with full double ovens, vented hood and a butler’s pantry area. From here you can step down into the sun-drenched 6th bedroom/playroom/den area which accesses the large backyard.
Five of the home’s six bedrooms are located on the upper level with the laundry room and a built in home office/homework area, while the 6th bedroom currently serves as a playroom/den that can be a more formal home office.(The room is plumbed to add a half bath if desired in the future and a bonus loft area is sure to become the favored hideaway for the kids.) Having the main bedrooms all together on the upper level leaves the lower level free of daily clutter and ready to receive guests.
The master suite is truly unique in that it functionally utilizes the abundant square footage. A proper bedroom area enjoys a private fireplace as well as both courtyard views and gorgeous views of American Martyrs church. The room carries on to a separated sitting room which is a great space that could be utilized as a nursery area within the master which could then become a home office or better yet, a perfect place for the treadmill or Paleon bike. After your workout you can step right into the master bath with separate soaking tub and large step-in shower complete with dual shower heads and body jets.
All of the outdoor spaces offered by this home add to what sets it apart. The large, grassy backyard is filled with sunlight and there is an elevated patio area as well as a pad that could be a great place for a spa. The back of the home opens up to the yard and offers a wonderful space to entertain and enjoy the nearly year-round perfect beach weather. Having the courtyard with the fireplace as a separate, yet connected outdoor area allows for the adults to sip their wine while the kids run and play.
Being so close to the public and private schools is a plus as getting to school couldn’t be easier on busy mornings. When the day is done, a quick bike ride to the beach is a fabulous way to enjoy quality time together. And on weekends, when little league and soccer games fill the schedule, the location couldn’t be more advantageous. Pacific Ave offers a convenient route straight to day-to-day conveniences like Target and the downtown shops as well as easy access to all the new hotspots at the nearby Point. Just 15 minutes from LAX and appx. 25 minutes to the heart of Silicon Beach, the Tree Section is the ideal place to be.
