East MB Tuscan Estate Has a Buyer

By Dave Fratello | June 26th, 2020

You have to love the diversity of properties around Manhattan Beach.

It's not all beach cottages and 'burbs.

So here's one. It's one of the unique estates on the east side, and now it has a deal.

1501 9th Street Manhattan Beach CA1501 9th (6br/10ba, 8475 sqft.) is a truly massive house on a nearly double-sized lot (~12,300 sqft.).

With all that land, back in 2008 this huge Tuscan-inspired trophy property was custom built with care and inspiration.

1501 9th Street Manhattan Beach CA1501 9th Street Manhattan Beach CA1501 9th Street Manhattan Beach CASoon after it was completed, in early 2009, it was first offered for sale. At the time (yes, 11 years ago), we here at MBC said of the home:

"[T]his is the sort of property you expect in the Hill Section or some of the LA area's ritzier neighborhoods, with a courtyard design, a covered outdoor living room and kitchen plus all the big stuff inside – tiered home theater, huge catering kitchen, all kinds of extra entertaining spaces and a luxe home office for the Master of the Universe who'd prefer to skip the commute."

The property dominates its immediate neighborhood, which is more conventional, a series of suburban homes on those treasured Mira Costa neighborhood 50' x 150' lots. You'll still find some of the original cottages on the block, along with rebuilds dating to the 2000s, 1990s and earlier.

Worth noting: Sale attempts in 2009, 2010 and 2013 didn't work out, and the property was leased for part of that stretch of time. It finally sold in 2014 for $4.500M.

The 2020 list price: $6.750M.

They had a deal within 3 weeks.

We're displaying several photos from the listing here. See the whole property here, or you can tour the house virtually in 3D by using this link. (Set aside some time. It's a huge house!)
