873 8th St. | Mediterranean Marvel
ASKING PRICE: $3,500,000
4 BED · 5 BATH · 4,969 SQF
The hill section of Manhattan Beach never seems to disappoint us, so naturally, when we visited 873 8th St. we knew we were going to fall in love. From the curb, the home is bursting with lush greenery and beautiful palm trees that guide you to the front door of the Mediterranean style home. Inside you are greeted by a tall spiral staircase that is surrounded by glass blocks allowing the natural light to pour into the home.
On the top floor is the beautiful kitchen, dining room, and family room, which features light wood floors and exposed (but painted) beams. The kitchen has granite countertops, a long island with a built-in sink and stove top, and many cabinets on the wall for plenty of storage space. Connected to the kitchen is a built in dining nook and desk area. Off the kitchen is a perfect outdoor entertaining patio complete with a built-in grill, fridge and keg-orator, but more importantly there is a heater for those cold beach nights. Moving back inside, the bedrooms are all spacious and the master features a fireplace and a private balcony that overlooks the front of the home. Down on the lowest level of the home we found another bedroom that could also be considered a master because of the insane spa-like bathroom that it had. The bathroom featured the glass block windows (like the staircase) surrounding the built-in jacuzzi tub, as well as a free standing shower made entirely of those same glass blocks.
Our favorite part of the home was the lower level because of how much space the big family room had as well as a large bar. If it were up to us we would put a pool table and a big screen TV in the space. To top it all off, out the sliding doors is a covered outdoor patio with a hot tub!
Overall we loved this house. The location is great and with a 4 car garage to top it all off, this is a dream home for a growing family looking to live in MB’s incredible hill section.
