Nantucket Inspired Manhattan Beach Hill Section Home
Listed by Bryn Stroyke of the Stroyke Properties Group at Bayside Real Estate Partners, this home is a stately, traditional New England inspired luxury coastal residence found in the sought-after Manhattan Beach Hill Section. The property sits on a corner lot capturing southern views of the ocean, Palos Verdes peninsula and Catalina Island beyond. This home will be offered for sale at $6,195,000.
Savory Ocean Views –
A quaint, dutch-door entryway gives way to a sunlight foyer that leads to the upper-level entertaining areas where the views can be enjoyed from multiple decks and rooms.
Southern California Dreaming –
The upper level first welcomes you to a formal living room with a walk-out ocean view deck that faces North. This elegant entertaining space features high vaulted ceilings and is flooded with natural light. French doors open to an ocean view BBQ deck that invites one to enjoy al fresco dining while cozied up to an outdoor fireplace. The patio continues on to open to the open-concept formal dining room that seamlessly connects to the custom kitchen.
Ultimate Kitchen Envy –
Soaring, ship-lap finished ceilings draw the eye to the heart of the home – the bright and light kitchen area – where friends and family alike can casually gather around an over-sized kitchen island with convenient built-in wine storage. Any fan of the culinary arts will appreciate the thoughtfully planned form and function of this kitchen; from the 6-burner Wolf range with griddle, to a handy pot filler and prep-sink, to clever appliance garages, and a walk-in pantry. A bonus third wall-oven allows for easily entertaining en masse. Glass-front cabinets, open shelving in the center island, plus a cabinet-faced dishwasher and range hood are just some of the many details that emulate the tradition of an east coast summer home kitchen.
The Family’s Favorite Hang-Out Spot –
The family room captures sweeping ocean views that can be further appreciated from the walk-out south-facing deck. Drenched in natural light, this space remains open and connected to the more formal entertaining areas, while presenting a more laid-back and casual environment. It’s quite easy to imagine a Thanksgiving holiday with guests gathered around the family room playfully bantering over collegiate football games while a cool ocean breeze carries the smells of Thanksgiving dishes throughout the home. A turkey roasts outside on the BBQ while the kitchen bustles with dinner preparations. Youngsters play in the yard area with parents overseeing from the deck above while taking in glimmering ocean views and the mild Southern California Fall weather. It really doesn’t get much better than that!
Bedroom Level Details –
Reflecting key design elements found in summer homes from The Hampton’s to Nantucket, the home features incredible white wood-detailing throughout, from coffered ceilings, to bead board and wainscoting, to delightful built-ins and airy open-beam ceilings.
Subterranean Surprise –
A finished basement level features a second family room with fireplace plus a large recreation room plus a full bath and closet. (A future remodel of the basement presents an opportunity for a 6th bedroom/suite by adding a wall.)
South Bay Living –
Hill section living offers the perfect blend of private enjoyment of outdoor living space, abundant ocean views, and close proximity to community activity in Downtown Manhattan Beach, plus a short walk or bike ride to the beach. Residents benefit from award-winning local schools as well as a reasonable commute to the downtown LA financial district, nearby Silicon Beach and LAX.
