This perfect Craftsman was built by Nick Schaar and features everything from soaring ceilings, large bedrooms, high-end appliances, and a backyard you’d expect to find in a magazine. Combining a perfect blend of casual and elegant that comes with luxury coastal living, this approximately 3,500 SF home sits on a 5,120 SF South facing lot. A two-story brick, wood-burning fireplace is the highlight of the entryway overlooked by a large staircase. Continue past the formal dining room to the open living and kitchen area. A second brick fireplace and built-in entertainment center create a cozy atmosphere to relax. The kitchen features premium appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking double oven, Bosch dishwasher, and wine fridge. Gather around the expansive island or at the communal dining area with built-in bench seating. Outside, you’ll first notice the breathtakingly gorgeous Italian pine tree that gives the backyard a serene storybook feel. A custom-built clubhouse features a loft bed and play space. Other key features of the backyard are the sunken brick patio and lush landscaping which line the high surrounding fence for extra privacy. A powder room finishes off the main level along with an additional bedroom with en suite bath that can be used as a comfortable workspace. Upstairs houses the remaining four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a full-sized laundry/utility room. Two almost equally sized bedrooms are adjoined by a Jack and Jill bath and the third features a private balcony. The welcoming master suite is a true sanctuary with French doors opening to a balcony overlooking the backyard. A spa-like bath features dual sinks and vanities, a large soaking tub, and an oversize walk-in rainfall shower with bench seating. A generous walk-in closet can be accessed from both the bedroom and bathroom. Built-in linen cabinets lining the hall are a plus to help keep daily clutter out of sight. This charming coastal oasis is located in the Manhattan Beach Tree Section, a sought-after location with excellent schools and the ability to take a short walk or bike ride to the beach or downtown’s high-end shopping and dining.
