Manhattan Beach New Listings (2/24-2/25/24)

If you're looking in East Manhattan, this has been a promising early Spring season so far.

This week there are 4 debuts of 3-4 bedroom homes, most being largely original but with potential.

But the Sand Section grabs top billing this week, both due to a new construction home and an over-the-top offering of what works out to about 3 1/2 lots just across from Bruce's Beach Park. What a unique opportunity.

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.

2700 Highland Avenue, Manhattan Beach,

2700 Highland Avenue, Manhattan Beach,  2700 Highland Avenue (7 units totaling 5651 sqft., 2 lots totaling 11,398 sqft.) is an unprecedented type of offering, effectively 3 1/2 lots in midtown with unblockable views over Bruce's Beach Park (and Highland Ave.).

2700 Highland Avenue, Manhattan Beach, Technically, what's for sale is 2 lots, which they are trying to sell together, but the listing crew has helpfully mapped out how the property could potentially be divided up to allow the building of 2 sets of townhomes on lots parallel to 27th St. and fronting Highland, a large SFR up along Crest, and one more half-lot SFR fronting Highland. (No one is going to guarantee how the city – or state law – will look at proposals to subdivide and redevelop the land, but these are pretty solid potential plans to get one thinking. Current state law does appear to preclude reducing the number of units on the site from the current 7.)

The structures on site now are the family legacy of the Beverly family. Robert "Bob" Beverly was a former Manhattan Beach mayor, state assembly member and state senator, while his wife, Elizabeth Louise "Bettelu" Beverly has been called the "martriarch" of Manhattan Beach. When Bettelu passed early last year, just shy of her 98th birthday, it set a process in motion that would lead to this family compound coming to market. (See MB News' story on Bettelu and the family.)

2700 Highland Avenue, Manhattan Beach, From the official description:

With unparalleled scale and scope, this rare chance allows for the creation of a landmark project in one of the most prestigious beachfront communities in the United States...

506 Manhattan Avenue, Manhattan Beach, A large, open family room and wet bar are upstairs, along with two bedrooms that share a bath. There is not what you might call a separate "primary suite" exactly anywhere in the house.

The build date is stated as 1977, but you can readily see that the modernizations are far more current. If you track this market closely, the start price may seem low. And it's even lower than its Oct. 2022 start at $4.295M.

The home's lower level also includes a convenient in-home office with thoughtful built-ins and its own entrance; with a spa-like bathroom nearby, this space easily doubles as a guest suite."

506 Manhattan Avenue, Manhattan Beach, "Upstairs, you’ll find a showcase entertainment room.

Nearby, the spacious owner's bedroom includes a generous, skylit walk-in closet with custom built-ins and an ensuite bathroom with double vanities and triple-headed walk-in rain shower."

"With a 2-car garage, 3 more guest parking spots in the cobblestone driveway, golf cart parking, an outdoor rain shower and a generous bike/surfboard storage area (or possible home gym), 506 Manhattan Ave is the beach pad you deserve. But since all this convenience, beauty, and space is bound to draw attention, you’ll need to move fast before what you should have becomes what you should have had."

East Manhattan Beach

1712 Ruhland Avenue, Manhattan Beach,

1712 Ruhland Avenue, Manhattan Beach,  1712 Ruhland Avenue (3br/2ba, 1286 sqft.) is a 1961 original with a mid-century modern motif, at least how we see it presented today, and while, yes, it's original, it's fresh and polished up and possible to see with its potential.

1712 Ruhland Avenue, Manhattan Beach, Any buyer is going to want to take on the baths and kitchen, and there will be a small series of projects going out from there, but it's always nice to see a place where you can dream about that next version.

1531 Ruhland Avenue, Manhattan Beach,

1531 Ruhland Avenue, Manhattan Beach,  1531 Ruhland Avenue (4br/3ba, 1838 sqft.) is further west along the same street at the previous listing we mentioned, indeed just about a half block from the high school's stadium and running track, while boasting a larger house – an extra bedroom and 500 sqft. more.

The lot size is a bit unusual, 47' wide, having apparently given away 3' to the neighbor to the east at some distant point in the past.
