Quite simply one of the best combinations of Strand location, orientation and home ever built on the Strand. Located on arguably the best corner lot on the Strand, this spectacular, custom-built home features a commitment to quality and attention to detail that literally set the bar for Strand elegance. Custom built by David Garinger at over $700/sq ft (in 2001 dollars), this home features 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms in over 5,300sf, 5 car garage parking (including two vaulted spaces) plus room for 2 more vehicles on the apron, and an open floor plan that functions beautifully while maximizing natural light and world class ocean views. Enjoy, an often not contemplated, perfect buffer from downtown, which translates into a short stroll to dinner, but far enough to avoid congestion. With the rare, sought after southern exposure of a north corner lot, the home is designed around capturing the most prized, signature views on the Strand: the Manhattan Beach Pier, PV Peninsula and Catalina Island. You won’t just entertain your guests, you will dazzle them.
One of the other cherished amenities of living in Manhattan Beach is its convenient lifestyle. One doesn’t need to leave “The Bubble” of our little beach community 95% of the time. However, if you wish to fly anywhere in the world, LAX International Airport is 5 miles north. Living on the beach, on the edge of the continent, our culture revolves around the ocean and beach lifestyle. It's active, friendly and fun, yet laid back and relaxed all at once. Our roots are steeped in beach volleyball, water sports like surfing and paddle boarding, exercising along the Strand and gatherings enjoying the same. We have wonderful, sacred traditions like the Manhattan Beach Open, which is beach volleyball’s "Wimbledon," the Fourth of July, the Sixman V-Ball Tourney, International Surf Festival, MB Grand Prix Cycling races, Old Hometown Fair, Concerts in the Park, the Holiday fireworks show, and so much more. Manhattan Beach is truly one of the best places to live on the planet. Mild temperate weather year round ranging from mid 40’s to mid 80’s, but living in the 50’s to 70’s most of the time. This beach city has something for everyone. Whether you are looking to find a friend, raise a family, have a weekend get-a-way or retire here, the combination of weather, convenience and lifestyle is unmatched. You collect rarities, now live in one.
