Charming Cottage in South Manhattan
Nestled between the sunny beaches of south Manhattan Beach and the lush Greenbelt lies this
mid-century bungalow. Offering four bedrooms and two baths in just over 1900 square feet, this
two-story charmer is updated and fresh while maintaining much of its original detail. This
enchanting home packs in the amenities that give it true charisma, including original batten board
siding, a covered brick entryway and new hardwood floors throughout. The expansive family room
upstairs is topped with an original beamed ceiling and large picture windows with a wet bar tucked
in the corner. The main floor features a cozy formal living room with original brick fireplace, a
sweet dining nook and bright kitchen with tons of natural light and a breakfast bar. Two bedrooms
and a full bath are just down the hall, with access to a sunny deck and stairs leading to the leafy
backyard. Downstairs, two additional bedrooms and a full bath provide secluded quarters with
the Master bedroom opening out into the yard: a wonderful, sheltered oasis that showcases the
slightly larger lot size and is removed from the bustle of everyday life.
Centrally located between white sandy beaches and the beautiful Greenbelt and walking distance
to town, 436 1st Street is prized as much for its location as for its mid-century authenticity. A rare
find in Manhattan Beach, this opportunity won’t last long!
