Elite Properties in Manhattan Beach

By Dave Fratello | March 15th, 2016

Whatever the state of the market, there's one thing you can't deny about Manhattan Beach real estate: We've got some freaking awesome homes here.

Today we'll offer a glance at some of the top-tier Manhattan Beach listings for your viewing pleasure.

As always here at MBC, just click on the address for more info about the listings, and all photos.

712 John Street Manhattan Beach CA712 John St. (7br/7ba, 6800 sqft.) is a custom "Beach Modern Masterpiece" (per the listing) on a large 12,000 sqft. corner lot.  (That 12K includes the city setbacks; legally it's 9940 sqft.)

The home is built in somewhat of an L-shape around a large and sparkling pool, with plenty of covered areas including a luxe cabana that gives new meaning to "outdoor living." That spot is living.

All of the first-floor areas have doors that slide or roll away to create a true indoor/outdoor feel to all of the home's common spaces.

There are views from the master and one room upstairs.

This highly private home also boasts "guest quarters" over the garage, a suite not unlike one you might get at a 5-star hotel.

This property is the first that comes up in this recent open-house video.

It's on the market asking $13.500M.

What's that? You want your ocean-views up close and personal? 

121 16th Street Manhattan Beach CAGive a look to 121 16th (4br/5ba, 4200 sqft.).

This custom modern has "spectacular permanent ocean views," according to the listing, thanks to the unique characteristics of the two lots/homes immediately to the west, which have lower overall height limits. (Buyers will verify, of course.)

The home was first developed in the 90s but redone completely in 2006. For a modern, it's remarkably warm and human – it's the choice of woods and colors that somehow keeps it real. Meantime, all the benefits of modern construction are on display – notable floor-to-ceiling windows and disappearing doors.

There are few homes in town that can properly claim to offer "sit down views" of the Manhattan Beach pier. This is one of them.

Naturally, the master suite gets views almost as good as those offered in the common areas on the top level. Oh, and did we mention the epic views from the home office? It might be a bit hard to actually work without having one's eyes drift from time to time... ahhh...

Video of this listing appears first in this video online.

121 16th is offered at $9.650M.

Did someone say, "give me more beach moderns?" Got it.

125 2nd Street Manhattan Beach CA125 2nd (4br/5ba, 4250 sqft.) is an even more recently completed home (2014), boasting big views to the south.

Called "[o]ne of the finest homes to ever come on the market in the MB Sand Section" in the listing, this one sports a location in the treasured, quiet South End. You're close enough to town, without being affected by town.

(A client recently "complained" to Dave: "I know what people say about being south of the pier. Ugh! Too sleepy for me!" Which seems to make the point.)

From the agent's official description of this home: "A collaboration three years in the making and literally in as good as new condition. Ideal floorplan with 3rd floor living that takes in the panoramic whitewater views day and night. The spacious Great Room connects to a large covered lanai through 10' tall sliding doors that disappear into a pocket, seamlessly connecting the interior and exterior living spaces."

There's A/C, a wine room, and much more. Asking: $10.300M.
