Refined Coastal Elegance in the Sand Section

Located on a premium gas lamp street in the sought after Sand Section of Manhattan Beach, this luxury residence was built by respected local builder Matt Morris. A covered front porch with gas lamps of its own leads to a charming entryway. As you enter the light and bright home you are instantly drawn to the extensive use of high-end wood craftsmanship and designer details throughout. Every detail is executed to perfection from the dark Brazilian cherry wood floors to the soft, coastal color palette.

The statement kitchen is equipped with Carrera marble counters and top-of-the-line Miele, Wolf and Subzero appliances. The open concept kitchen features cabinet-faced appliances, dual dishwashers, a center island with built-in storage solutions, a pot filler and white apron sink.  A built-in breakfast area seamlessly connects the kitchen and family room allowing for an outstanding casual environment for informal entertaining. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious family room centered around a cozy fireplace framed by crisp, white woodwork and flanked by built-in storage cabinets.  French doors open to the private outdoor spaces which include an patio fireplace and beach shower. Host more formal occasions in the dining room then carry the conversation to the formal living room. Wine collectors will appreciate the temperature-controlled wine cellar that fits up to 800 bottles. A spacious office is also on the main level with built-in shelving and cabinetry.  

The floor plan is ideal with all bedrooms together on the upper level, keeping the main entertaining spaces free of daily clutter and ready to receive drop-in guests! The master suite features a large walk-in closet and dual French doors that open to a private balcony.  with Carrera marble, his and her sinks, a vanity station and walk-in waterfall shower. The laundry/utility room is conveniently located on the upper level along with the master and three additional bedroom suites. Two of the bedrooms are adjoined by way of a Jack and Jill bath. The fourth bedroom has dual balconies and a built-in media center. Built-in linen storage lines the upper hallway adding not only convenience, but an upscale finished look.

This single family home combines the concept of a more traditional floorplan as found in the neighboring Tree Section, with the beach lifestyle of a Downtown Manhattan Beach adjacent Sand Section location. The home is just steps from Live Oak park, community sports fields, the greenbelt-jog path, the civic center, Farmer’s market and shopping and dining downtown.
