Rarely does an opportunity arise to purchase an architecturally significant, modern estate perched high above the Pacific on a coveted walkstreet in the heart of Manhattan Beach. Boasting panoramic ocean views and luxurious living on every level, this home is a true showcase, designed by Michael Lee and offering four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths in 3634 square feet. The showstopping top level is an entertainer’s dream, with 11-foot teak ceilings allowing for a flood of natural light throughout, and stunning water views from several vantage points. A formal living room with glass-encased balcony and fireplace, seating area as well as a formal dining room bordered by walls of windows and anchored by bamboo floors are found at the top of the floating stairway. The large, modern kitchen features hardwood cabinetry and a generous center island, granite countertops and Bosch appliances, as well as a built-in wine fridge and nearby powder room. Step through the glass doors and out onto an airy patio, complete with built-in fireplace and protected dining area with lovely views of the Pacific. The bonus room is the perfect game / media / family room, with corner windows to take in additional views and allow for plenty of sunshine. Downstairs, a family room opens onto a sizeable walkstreet patio, complete with concrete decking and a turf yard – all placed to take advantage of the incredible vistas. This floor also includes three bedrooms and three full baths, all with contemporary fixtures and finishes and slate floors. The primary suite is tucked away down the hall and provides the perfect sanctuary with sparkling water views, a huge spa-like primary bath with separate shower and soaking tub, as well as a big walk-in closet. On the first level, another bedroom and bath offer guest quarters, while a laundry room provides a myriad of storage options, and a three-stop elevator is optimally placed near the three-car garage. Two additional parking spaces allow for a total of five cars, almost unheard of this close to the beach. Located just three blocks to the Strand and a brief walk to downtown Manhattan Beach, this home has location bragging rights as well. An impressive feat in design and architectural style, this residence is truly one-of-a-kind, offering the finest oceanside living available today in this storied seaside town.
