Classic Cape Cod in Fantastic Neighborhood
Situated on the north side of one of the most desirable streets in Manhattan Beach, this home is a warm and welcoming residence filled with history and charm.  A multi-faceted, four-bedroom, three-bath residence in 4037 square feet of living space, this home is a place to lay down roots and settle in.  Originally built in 1952 on a 6260 square foot lot, this house includes a cheery front brick patio and grassy yard.  Enter the Dutch front door to a formal living and dining space with corner fireplace, hardwood floors and old-world charm.  The kitchen is warm and inviting with updated amenities, including a large island, SubZero fridge, farmstand sink and double ovens.  Extras abound with hot and cold purified water, a warming drawer and European hardware.  The space also boasts a cozy sitting room with fireplace and breakfast nook with window seat, shiplap ceilings, original brick flooring and built-in entertainment center bookcase.  

Step out to the brick patio with built-in fire pit and seating area, jacuzzi and views of north Manhattan as well as access to the subterranean wine cellar.  The back of this home contains one of its most unique features – a farmhouse-style family room with a 4’ tall fireplace.  This vast space is perfect for gathering with family and friends and boasts soaring beamed ceilings, a separate seating area, a spiral staircase to a loft, built-ins and entertainment center.  A wall of sliding glass doors opens to the patio, providing an easy transition for desirable indoor/outdoor living. Completing the first floor are two generously proportioned bedrooms with baths as well as a convenient laundry room.  

Upstairs is home to the Master suite – a complete retreat with a sunny bedroom leading to a private deck, oversize his/her closet and a charming window seat.  The Master bath is truly a place for respite with separate vanities and European soaking tub.  A cozy private office/den sits just off the suite, providing a welcome space for relaxing or working.

Positioned to take advantage of both light and views and located just down the street from the storied Badminton Club, Greenbelt, beach and downtown, this quintessential Cape Cod residence is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own in the American Martyrs section of Manhattan Beach.
