Want a huge home for a large family? The home at 1652 8th in the heart of the Mira Costa section of Manhattan Beach is one of the largest in town and at under $1.5M, it is an amazing deal. This home has 5008 square feet (no, that’s not a typo and it’s not the lot size, which is an awesome 7497 square feet.) Five bedrooms, four baths, an enormous open living room with high vaulted ceilings — so amazing to see this large a house in Manhattan Beach LA county at this price. The teenage daughter in this family practically has her own apartment, her bedroom with attached bath is so large — this could be a wonderful room for in-laws quarters. The kitchen opens to the large yard, which is great for a family. Eighth street is very quiet too, as the street is a little narrow and therefore is not used much for through traffic. It could use a little updating, but with maybe a $60,000 investment it should be worth well over $1.7M. With a new agent, the price has come down from $1,689,000 to $1,499,900, so I predict it will be gone within the week.
In the Hollywood Riviera, this home at 4095 Bluff in Torrance is an unbelievable steal at $875,900 in my opinion. With 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and all fully remodeled, this is a really nice home with over 2000 square feet of living space. Beautiful hardwood floors, wonderful private front garden AND rear yard with a spa make this our top pick for the Hollywood Riviera this week. Although this one doesn’t have a view like some of the other homes in the Hollywood Riviera, it has so much to offer. The location for commuters is great too — just a quick zip down Mesa and Vista Montana to PCH and you can get to the freeway very easily.
