Introducing 108 S. Poinsettia, a truly spectacular, ocean view home in the sought-after Hill Section of Manhattan Beach. Setting a new standard for elegance by the beach, it features luxurious finishes from floor to ceiling, unique and charming architectural details, incredible outdoor spaces, impressive extras indoors and out, and a wonderfully family-friendly layout that’s ideal for entertaining. All of this in one of the most coveted locations in California, where the ocean is always in view and only a few minutes’ walk away. Where coastal breezes and breathtaking sunsets delight you daily. Where top-rated schools, award-winning restaurants, lush parks, stylish shops and the inimitable SoCal lifestyle is yours for the taking.
The 5-bedroom, 8-bathroom home’s beautiful landscaping, trickling fountain and elegant façade impress even before you enter its grand double doors to the main level. Here, a sunken formal living room with sunny balcony leads to a gorgeous formal dining room with limestone fireplace and intricate tray ceiling, both featuring extensive use of molding, eye-catching light fixtures and spotlights as well as surround sound. Beyond the elegant formal rooms is the heart of the home, where the spacious yet comfortable family room with flagstone fireplace and built-ins flows easily into the amazing gourmet kitchen, complete with top-of-the-line finishes and appliances, an amazing butler’s pantry with rolling ladder and side door leading to a quiet patio, a grand central island with breakfast bar, and a delightful breakfast nook for casual family dining.
This enormous space is flanked by an entire wall of French doors that open to the amazing backyard—imagine the fun your family will enjoy here, with just a few or dozens of friends! Throw open the French doors to expand your living space onto the large, lovely flagstone patio that overlooks a putting green and spa. With its huge stone fireplace and fully-stocked outdoor kitchen with over-sized BBQ, warming drawer and refrigerator, this backyard is a fun and functional living space you’ll love year round! Also on this main level is a west facing bedroom with balcony and en suite bathroom—perfect for guests.
Follow the graceful mahogany staircase with wrought iron banister to the top level, gazing upwards to appreciate the unique domed ceiling. (Almost every ceiling in this home is a work of art, so don’t forget to look up!) French doors and wonderful windows greet you at the top of the stairs, through which you can take in the lovely panoramic ocean view. Here, a sunny second family room invites you to stay awhile, with a stacked stone fireplace, sun-drenched balconies as well as a mahogany bar with a refrigerator, ice maker and hammered copper sink. A lovely powder room is just outside, as is a classic wood-paneled office that surrounds you with stately built-ins, an impressive fireplace, and French doors with ocean view and access to a private balcony.
When privacy is desired, simply close the bi-fold glass doors. Yet another work space can be found through a set of double doors. A gleaming granite worktop, custom built-ins, enough space for two chairs and the proximity to the secondary bedrooms makes this an ideal homework and kids’ project area!
The two nearby bedrooms are large and inviting, with luxurious en suite bathrooms, beautiful finishes and details, plantation shutters, walk-in closets and custom built-ins. In keeping with the rest of the home, the majestic ocean view master suite is full of fine finishes, including a custom tile fireplace, yet another private balcony, and large walk-in closet with built-in cabinetry. Dual sinks, a spa tub and an oversized shower grace the spa-like master bath that’s finished with elegant travertine tilework.
Ready for some fun? Walk down the gorgeous polished travertine staircase from the main level to discover an amazing “entertaining” space specially designed to delight kids, teens and adults alike! In addition to the versatile bedroom with en suite bath—which is currently being used as an additional kids’ office and music room—this lower level features a huge, temperature-controlled wine cellar, a gym complete with mirrored walls, a TV and a built-in barre, a classic cedar-lined sauna for post-workout bliss, and an enormous game room/home theater with fabric-lined walls, yet another fireplace, and a built-in powered screen, projector and sound system for top-rate showings.
