Manhattan Beach New Listings (11/11-11/12/23)

We're here to talk about real estate, of course, and we'll do that below.

But let's be sure to take some time this weekend to celebrate and thank our veterans. Remember that what we have is never guaranteed, and much of it comes at the cost of great struggle and loss.

There are events around the city on Saturday. Please see this MB News story summarizing events and specials for veterans at local restaurants and stores. (Photo above is courtesy of the city of Manhattan Beach.)

Open house times for new listings are listed below, but you can also click SEARCHES then "Open Houses" at the top of our site, which displays all the Manhattan Beach open houses. There are also links right at the top to Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach opens.

Tree Section

2116 N Ardmore Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CA

2116 N Ardmore Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CA 2116 N Ardmore Avenue (4br/2ba, 2220 sqft.) may look and sound familiar, generally, because indeed this house was offered from April-Aug. this year, at prices near $2.4-$2.5M.

2116 N Ardmore Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CAHowever, it was tenant-occupied and showing wear and tear. The kitchen, baths and flooring cried out for updates. No one, it seemed, wanted to take on the project.

So the seller did.

2116 N Ardmore Avenue, Manhattan Beach, CANow, the home boasts updates in all the important areas, and much more fully expresses what it could have been all along.

Side note: While we don't know how this remodel was carried out, our Edge office has access to a couple of pre-listing remodel services that can be run with zero up-front cost. The remodel is paid for out of escrow upon sale. Reach out to Dave if you need more info.

2413 Pine Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA

2413 Pine Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA 2413 Pine Avenue (4br/2ba, 2032 sqft.) may be a midsized home, but it boasts an unusually large lot for the area, at just over 5600 sqft.

It's simply 50' wide where most homes are 40'.

2413 Pine Ave, Manhattan Beach, CAThe home itself has a lot of throwback charm, and has been refreshed and staged nicely, but not updated. The asking is pretty big for a standard Tree Section lot alone, but for this bigger plot... ?

644 14th Street, Manhattan Beach, CA

644 14th Street, Manhattan Beach, CA 644 14th Street (3br/2ba, 1680 sqft.) might look familiar at first, because in fact the same home was on the market in the Summer, closing for $2.900M in August.

It has since received a substantial interior remodel, and is now back asking about $400K more than the purchase price.

644 14th Street, Manhattan Beach, CAWhat was true before remains: That location in the American Martyrs area is super, on a quiet block with some fantastic houses, and very walkable to town.

If the August sale was a little above land value, the remodeled home is way above land value, but this is the kind of home that might benefit from a long-term vision: Live now, build later.
