6 BED · 8 BATH · 4,836 SQF
Every home we see in Manhattan Beach’s “Hill Section” always seems to amaze us in one way or another, and 108 S. Poinsettia Ave did not disappoint. From the curb it was impressive, with a big lavish facade that gave us a pretty good idea as to what might be inside.
Entering through the big wooden double-doors you are welcomed by sort of relaxed elegance that is overflowing in this 5 bed, 8 bath charmer. What we noticed first were the wood floors in the kitchen/family room because they pair beautifully with the stone in the entry way. The kitchen, attached to the family room, was incredible! With a built-in fridge to match the cabinets, a huge island with barstools and a microwave built into one side, and a perfect dining nook at the end. Coming out from the kitchen you have a view of the relaxing backyard that features a decent sized putting green, built in BBQ and fireplace, as well as a hot tub in the back corner to complete the space. Our favorite area of the home was the lower floor. Down there is a game room complete with a pool table and a drop down screen for movie night. We would have loved to stay for a flick but we weren’t invited (we wish!). Right next door to the movie room was a private fitness center with hardwood floors and mirrors on the walls and tons of workout equipment. The particular reason we loved this floor of the home: what we called the ‘SPAUNA’ (aka: Spa/Sauna). It was technically the bathroom, but the way it was decorated made it feel like a spa, and it had its very own Sauna! We could totally imagine coming home from a long day at work, hitting the gym, then the sauna, rinsing off in the huge shower, then curling up to relax and watching a movie! All of that can be done by just a little walk down the hall. How cool is that?
Upstairs the charm continued with each room maintaining the relaxed elegance. At the top of the stairs was an amazing retreat with a bar, balcony and sweeping views of the ocean. Next to that was a library/study with its own fireplace that had us dreaming of getting lost in a good book. The master bedroom did its job and had us feeling like royalty with its wide open views, flawless oversized shower and spa tub fit for a king. The other bedrooms upstairs all continued to make us want to move in immediately!
Overall, there isn’t one thing about this home that we saw that was a negative. It has a great neighborhood, ocean views, plenty of space for entertaining and your own private gym/‘spauna’! This home is perfect for a family / someone who enjoys the finer things in life. We definitely loved 108 S. Poinsettia Ave. and you will too.
