Nestled on a coveted south-facing corner lot along the Manhattan Beach Strand north of the pier, this custom-built Cape Cod home exudes sophistication and brilliance. A stone's throw from the sand, yet crafted for complete privacy, it strikes the perfect balance between tranquility and grand-scale entertaining. Spanning approximately 3,949 square feet, the interior is suffused with natural light from an abundance of large south and west-facing windows. Expansive outdoor decks on each level offer coveted and usable space for al fresco living. Originally designed and built by the owners for their personal use, the architect-wife created a home where every room displays a stunning ocean view, ideal for both intimate gatherings and larger groups. The current configuration is two bedrooms, a den, and three and a half bathrooms, but with a bit of reworking, can easily transform into a three or even four-to-five-bedroom abode.
Upon entering the home, you'll immediately appreciate the inviting, open feel, from the wet bar to the living room with its soaring 20+ foot ceilings, cozy fireplace, and intimate circular dining room. The gourmet kitchen also offers breathtaking ocean views. The living room windows are custom and enormous, maximizing the entrancing white water ocean and sunset views. Just outside, the main living space is a deck complete with a built-in BBQ, speakers, and those coveted views. Downstairs, the family room is yet another incredible space for entertaining and lounging. It opens to a large brick patio that invites outdoor living, dining, and relaxation. Also on this level are a large secondary bedroom, full bathroom, six-person sauna, third bedroom, wine room, and indoor/outdoor spa.
At the very top, the entire floor is dedicated to the primary suite, with a bedroom, office/den, his and hers bathrooms and closets, and two decks once again offering ocean views. Other amenities include an oversized five-car garage, three car parking outside, dual AC, garage storage room (perfect for golf clubs and shoes or surfboards and towels), skylights, mature landscaping, a separate laundry room, and plenty of custom cabinetry. You won't want to leave this stunning home!
