Some weeks, there is nothing to see on Brokers’ Open — it sometimes starts to seem like all the houses are cookie-cutter clones of each other. But this week, there were some unusual (and fantastic) homes in Manhattan Beach! My favorites are as follows:
Newly listed, 625 13th street is a fantastic deal for the $1.5M price point. Technically in the tree section, but feeling much more like a sand section house (and within terrific short walking distance to the beach), this home has 3 spacious bedrooms, each with it’s own contemporary, remodeled bathroom. Ocean views and a killer open living area make this a wonderful choice — a quiet street with all the benefits of sand section living. I loved the vibe in this home and think you might too!
Another great option this week was 576 33rd. This fantastic open, airy, and remodeled tree section one-level really had the wonderful feeling of indoor/outdoor California living. Also in the $1.5M range (actually at $1.475M), the home flows between indoor and outdoor spaces. With exposed rafters and terrific floorplan, this one really hits it out of the park.
There were some other properties on that were also pretty nice, but these two were so special they are truly the “Top Picks” for the week of 9/9/11.
