Originally built in 2003 by master craftsman Ken Johnson, this outstanding Tree Section home has been updated and upgraded with a contemporary coastal color palette and designer selections throughout. The curb appeal starts with the flagstone walk way, groomed gardens, and a charming Dutch door entryway.
Upon entry soaring two-story ceilings draw in natural light and offer a dramatic setting in the formal living room and dining areas. The formal dining room features crisp, white wainscoting and patterned floor inlay details. The dining room effortlessly connects to the kitchen by way of a butler's pantry with refrigerated wine storage close at hand. The custom kitchen centers around an over-sized Calacatta Manhattan marble topped island with a striking veining pattern. The kitchen is finished with a high end appliance package which includes top-of-the-line brands such as Thermador, Kitchen Aid and Bosch. A cheerful breakfast nook, a sun-filled family room and the kitchen all enjoy a seamless, open feel that opens direct to the private backyard retreat. Marble slab faced fireplaces, symmetrical plantation shutters, custom window treatments, gleaming hardwood floors, built-in bench seating and display shelving, zoned central air conditioning, and bonus garage workspace and storage are just some of the many finer details of this luxury residence.
The inviting backyard has been custom hard-scaped and designed for ideal entertaining. Enjoy cool beach evenings as family and friends gather around a cozy fire and dine al-fresco under a vine covered trellis. Patio heaters and outdoor speakers set the mood for relaxed entertaining well into the evening.
All bedrooms are located on the upper level along with the laundry/utility room. This is an ideal layout for keeping daily clutter out of the line of site of guests. The master retreat enjoys high vaulted ceilings, a private fireplace and balcony and a generously sized walk-in closet. Soak the day away in a jetted tub that sits separate from the travertine finished walk-in shower. The remaining bedrooms each share Jack and Jill bathrooms and the 5th bedroom/office option enjoys a large walk-out deck.
The Tree Section is highly sought after for its traditional neighborhood feel while being within a few minutes of the beach and downtown Manhattan Beach. Residents enjoy walking along the natural setting of the accessible green-belt jog path that leads right into the heart of all the community activity. The property is located close to award winning public schools as well as world-class shopping and dining both downtown and nearby at The Pointe.
