Poised along the Manhattan Beach Strand is a private retreat spread across an ultra-rare corner double lot, with a generous span of color-rich Pacific Ocean frontage. The idyllic oceanfront villa is just north of the Pier, featuring a custom home of approx 10,000 sf with 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. The courtyard is designed as a fresh-air oasis where you stargaze by the firepit and unwind in the warm spa. Slip outside anytime for laps in the swimming pool, reflecting blue into the home via the many glass doors that merge main living spaces with the outdoors.
There are oceanview dining spaces and a chef’s kitchen with a huge central island. A private living room with elegant crown molding, a fireplace and earthy tiles. Venture further to an airy salon with high ceilings and polished wood floors where guests mingle along the patio and terrace. The dramatic central staircase connects all three floors, gracefully curving upward to fix on blue sky and light pouring in from a grand skylight. The uppermost floor is home to balcony bedroom suites you can access by three staircases, or take the elevator directly to the extensive primary wing: This is a tucked-away haven with a separate sitting room, a super-sized bathroom and a fireplaced bedroom with oceanview balcony.
Interiors are inspired by a grand coastal aesthetic; so is the amenity list. Guests shower and freshen up in the club-style changing room before joining the party in the plush bar and screening room. There’s a secluded wine room and a gym, plus a library/office with wall-to-wall cabinetry and coffered ceilings. The address is less than a 5 minute walk from boutiques and fine dining in Downtown, passing by the landmark red dome Pier along the way. It’s a fitting place for a villa that so perfectly suits the Beach Cities ideal of living, entertaining and nature under one roof.
