Character is what defines us all as human beings, so why wouldn’t our homes be able to have that same defining character? Well, this oceanfront property on the Strand in Manhattan Beach is overflowing with its own personality. When you walk up the brick steps, under the plaster arch ways and pass through the dark wood front door, there is a sense of tranquility and soul to this place. When you enter the home you have a clear view through the house all the way out to its panoramic ocean views. The floors are a mix of carpet, light beach-y wood and marble. Up top, the ceilings are exposed wood, which gives the luxury beach home a rustic feel. The master bedroom is connected to a solarium which could be a perfect sanctuary for some peace and quiet, or maybe even yoga. On the first floor the family room opens up to the Strand and is an ideal area for entertaining. With its own kitchen and fire place, this would be a room to spend mornings with the windows open, sipping a cup of coffee while reading the paper. Also, on this first floor is a guest bedroom with an adjoining full bath.
We found out that this home is actually two properties, but the rear house was not available for viewing. From what we gathered, the rear house is 3 beds and 2 baths and detached from the front, which gives a nice separation. This could be good for a homeowner looking to use it as a vacation rental as well. We also know that this rear property is more modern looking than the front, and is connected to the three car garage.
We absolutely loved this home because of its charm. While this definitely isn’t a home for everybody, we hope that the seller finds a buyer who appreciates the charisma and detail that is inside this oceanfront home.
