Located near the high point in the prestigious Manhattan Hill Section, this true mid-century modern home has ocean views from the south from King Harbor out to Catalina Island and beyond, while looking over the roofs of several adjoining properties. Additionally, there are blue water ocean views from the north. At just under approx. 3000 sq. ft., this home has an inviting open floorplan and, with some attention, can continue to be an enjoyable residence. With an approx. 5702 sq. ft. lot, surrounded with a rich variety of newer homes of many different styles, it leaves the mind to imagine the possibilities a creative architect may render for a newly constructed home. Unique to this location is the minimal traffic as this is not a through street. There are 4 bedrooms with one adapted as a studio unit (without permits), and a generous amount of storage space. Utilities are underground, eliminating unsightly poles and wires. Also, there is a rear deck off the Family Room and a spacious rear yard. At night one can often hear the ocean waves washing ashore. Manhattan’s wide sandy beaches, hosting several international sporting events, a green belt with jogging path and work out stations, and downtown with its thriving culinary scene and boutiques are a short walk away. Manhattan Beach has been listed as the #1 city in the “America’s 50 Best City’s to Live” by 24/7 Wall Street Journal.

* Combined DOM (CDOM) counts the total days on market for each time a property is listed, and continues counting until the property is Canceled/Expired for 90 days, no matter which agent or broker lists the property. This figure presents a truer picture of time on market because agents sometimes "re-list" a property after it has been on the market a while to try to “refresh” it, or sellers may change agents when a property has failed to sell.
