2509 N Poinsettia Avenue, Manhattan Beach,  2509 N Poinsettia (5br/4ba, 3294 sqft.) is a late 90s Mediterranean that's gotten a succession of stylistic remodels. This version is the best we've seen it.

2509 N Poinsettia Avenue, Manhattan Beach, As the home is built into an upsloping hillside, it's a bit vertical to get inside, but then the floorplan is fairly conventional. There a bright living room with high ceilings at the front, a flexible bedroom/office and dining room on the way back, and a large family room, kitchen with island and a newly built-in banquette.

The backyard is typical for the Trees, in this case with a goodly amount of stone-paved outdoor living space and faux turf.

East Manhattan Beach

5 Cambridge, Manhattan Beach,  5 Cambridge (4br/3ba, 3118 sqft.) is an upgraded Village SFR with two pleasant surprises: A pretty substantial (and nicely curated) backyard, and an elevator.

1311 8th Street, Manhattan Beach,

1311 8th Street, Manhattan Beach,  1311 8th Street (3br/2ba, 1817 sqft.) is a vision made real in a way that you don't often see.

When last we saw this home in 2019 (when these owners got it), it was a typical 50s bungalow with overly ornate furnishings, a dated, galley kitchen and lovely, tiered backyard.

1311 8th Street, Manhattan Beach, It's now been redone in a bold "island" style, with rough wood planks for flooring, with gaps like you might find at a slightly ramshackle beach house. Imperfections here and there seem to be by design.

The colors are bold: white and aqua blue dominate the first impressions.

All the bedrooms and living spaces run with the theme.

1311 8th Street, Manhattan Beach, You might feel like an 8-year-old gone to visit gramma at her shore house. Your feet demand to be bare. You know that if you somehow tracked sand into the house (in East Manhattan?), there would be no reprimand.

To sum it up: They did commit to the bit.

It's not what everyone is looking for, and it's what no one expects to see. But just try not to smile.

1311 8th Street, Manhattan Beach, Oh, and the gorgeous, huge, tiered backyard, with mature trees, is still as it was, a nice asset.

From the official description:

"Discover a slice of paradise at this single-level 3-bed, 2-bath home in East Manhattan Beach. Upon entering, you are greeted by a light, bright, and airy ambiance, accentuated by large picture windows that bathe the interior in natural sunlight. The island style adds unique details and charm throughout the open-concept 1,817 square feet of living space. Enjoy the huge backyard oasis with matured trees on the expansive 50 x 152 lot, providing ample space for outdoor activities, gardening, and entertaining guests, making it a perfect setting for creating lasting memories with family and friends. Live in comfort and style in one of Manhattan Beach's most desirable neighborhoods with proximity to pristine beaches, top-rated schools, trendy shops, and a variety of dining options."

1311 8th Street begins at $2.499M.
