Highest-Priced East MB Sales of 2020

By Dave Fratello | February 16th, 2021

After a bit of a delay, we are ready to close the books on top sales for Manhattan Beach in 2020.

You can find some past posts here:

Highest Sand Section Sales of 2020

Highest Tree Section Sales

Highest Hill Section Sales

And don't forget the Lowest Priced Home Sales of 2020.

Now, East Manhattan gets its due.

More homes sold in East Manhattan Beach than in any one district west of Sepulveda in 2020. There were 145 total home sales in East MB, and 141 in the Sand Section, the closest runner-up. Overall, this meant about one-third of all homes sold in MB were east of the highway.

The envelopes, please!

Oversized Lots Division

1501 9th (6br/10ba, 8475 sqft.)

Sale Price: $6.000M

This is a sprawling Tuscan estate with elaborate woodwork and stone, glamorous office and a backyard entertainment paradise.

117 S. Meadows (5br/5ba, 4670 sqft.)

Sale Price: $5.000M

This conventional Cape Cod-inspired home boasts a lot extending way back toward the city's exclusive Bel-Air-by-the-beach neighborhood on the hillside below the Poets section.

Conventional Lots - New Construction Division

1751 8th (6br/6ba, 5825 sqft.)

Sale Price: $4.825M

This is one of three new homes with pools all built along a former triple lot. They've been selling one at a time, often getting superb numbers.

1246 10th (6br/6ba, 7000 sqft.)

Sale Price: $4.700M

Here the PPSF is quite a bit lower, but then again, the official 7000 sqft. count includes a vastly oversized basement area.

Conventional Lots - Resale Division

1400 21st Street Manhattan Beach CA1400 21st (6br/5ba, 4560 sqft.)

Sale Price: $3.885M

Ah, the Bitcoin house. (See this refresher post.) This corner lot farmhouse sold in 2017 for $3.225M. The sellers at that time rejected an offer of 4,300 Bitcoin for the house, preferring cash.

The house appreciated some since then (~$660K). If the original sellers had pocketed and kept the 4,300 Bitcoin, they'd be holding $211 million today. (That's $200 million plus an extra $11 million.)

1416 18th (5br/4ba, 3700 sqft.)

Sale Price: $3.800M

Smaller Lots - New Construction Division

1712 N. Meadows (5br/5ba, 3530 sqft.)

Sale Price: $3.300M

This is an artfully designed, unique and solid new home on a corner lot. We're glad to note that our clients got it.

1400 Lynngrove (5br/6ba, 3600 sqft.)

Sale Price: $3.000M

Resales - 90s Division

1609 6th Street Manhattan Beach CA1609 6th (5br/4ba, 4965 sqft.)

Sale Price: $3.750M

Huuuuuuge doesn't say it all. These homes were built gigantic, a series of them along local streets, built all at once. But after 30 years, most still look like 90s houses, while this one got a head-to-toe redo.

1157 6th (5br/4ba, 4300 sqft.)

Sale Price: $3.350M

1467 3rd (5br/5ba, 4475 sqft.)

Sub-2000 sqft. Division

1612 9th Street Manhattan Beach CA1612 9th (3br/2ba, 1750 sqft.)

Sale Price: $2.100M

A single-story mid-century modern with inspired details inside, but an exterior that is modest, not caring to advertise.

1537 19th (3br/2ba, 1920 sqft.)

Sale Price: $2.020M

Manhattan Village SFRs Division

52 Village Circle Manhattan Beach CATie: 52 Village Circle (4br/4ba, 3265 sqft.), and

13 Westport (6br/3ba, 3500 sqft.)

Sale Price(s): $2.675M

You don't have to wonder what the going rate is for homes in the estate section of the Village. Two went for the same price.

Manhattan Village TH/Condo Division

51 Sausalito Circle Manhattan Beach CA51 Sausalito Circle (3br/3ba, 1820 sqft.)

Sale Price: $1.805M

This is a Plan 6 remodel on the golf course. A few years back, it had some trouble selling. Not so in 2020.

Sale Price: $1.475M
