From the official description:

129 8th Street, Manhattan Beach, CA"The ultimate Manhattan Beach dream home couldn’t possibly exist, since it would require 1) a walk street location no more than four houses from the sand, 2) to be South Facing 3) well over 3,000 SF of contemporary living space, 4) stunning ocean views from every level, 5) separate guest quarters with a private entrance and 6) parking for – let’s say – six vehicles. Oh, and it should be no more than a 30-second stroll from downtown. Fortunately, today is your lucky day. Unicorns may not be real, but the ultimate MB dream home has an actual address: 129 8th Street. This sleek, 3-story luxury home impresses before even entering thanks to its walk street-facing front yard with synthetic lawn & lounging patio, but it’s what’s inside that will take your breath away. The home’s dramatically open, light-filled main level with double-height ceilings combines an ocean-view living room with fireplace, adjacent dining area and a fully equipped chef’s kitchen with 6-burning Viking Professional range, charming pass-thru-style bar counter and nook. Upstairs, an art gallery-inspired loft area with jaw-dropping transparent glass flooring boasts impressive sight lines to the great room below and crashing ocean waves beyond. All three of the main home’s bedrooms are located downstairs, in addition to an office/gym space. The resort-like owner’s suite – strategically located on a corner to maximize ocean vistas – includes a patio leading to the front yard, a spa-like bathroom with rain shower & double sinks, and two closets with custom built-ins. A secluded patio area off the home’s main level leads to a 2-bedroom guest house with full bathroom, kitchenette, and private entrance."
