A Few Sat. Opens (4/11)

By Dave Fratello | April 11th, 2009
It's a holiday weekend, and relatively few opens given the vast inventory of homes for sale.

All will be busier next week, we're sure. Below are just a few interesting options for Saturday.

To plan your open-house tours for this week, use MB Confidential's online list of Manhattan Beach open houses (it's mobile-friendly!).

Hill Section

612 John is one of several prestige homes in the Hills that went months without bothering to open up to the public. (At least as far as the BR listings go.)

Now, after 200+ DOM, this huge (6br/7ba, 7400 sq. ft.) home is available for touring and ooohing and aaahing.

Grand home, big yard (nearly 10,000 sq. ft. lot) and ocean views – what you expect up on the hill. Splendid.

Purchased new in 2000 for $3.3m, this one began at $7.3m and is currently at $6.3m. Open Sat. 1-3pm.

Sand Section

217 2nd is two units, a main 3br/3ba, 2400 sq. ft. home with ocean views plus another 2br/2ba, 1000 sq. ft. rental. On a corner on the 2nd St. walkstreet west of Highland. Purchased in Dec. 2003 for $2.1m, tried last year as a FSBO if we're not wrong, currently at $3.495m. Open Sat. 1-4pm.

Tree Section

Nothing really new caught our eye so we'll point at one of the lovelier offerings this weekend, 2600 Poinsettia. This is newer construction (2000) with 4br/4ba, 3200 sq. ft. and great atmosphere, lots of custom touches. The quiet, private patio, with stone and lush plantings, is a well-realized outdoor living space with an "outdoor kitchen" featuring a terrific BBQ.

This one began last year at $1.899m, way high, and is now at $1.599m, getting close. Open Sat. & Sun. 1-4pm.


If you lived at 647 15th, you could be walking just across the street to church. This 4br/4ba, 3670 sq. ft.) Craftsman-inspired home was purchased for $2.8m in May 2006 and is offered now at $2.999m. Open Sun. 2-4pm.
