Manhattan Beach New Listings (6/8-6/9/23)

The weekend brings several new listings once again, a fact we love to mention because we can all remember when it seemed the well had run dry, and buyers were forced to compete among just a few options at any one time. 

The first two Sand Section listings noted below are actually next-door neighbors, setting up an interesting competition on the block.

In the Hill Section, we'll be open both Saturday and Sunday 2-4PM at Edge's listing at 819 11th. We've appreciated seeing friends, readers and past clients at our first few weekends' worth of opens. If you're around this weekend, pop by!

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.


PLEASE NOTE: Below, we present listings new to the Manhattan Beach market this week, via the MLS. They are listed and brokered by a variety of agents and firms. The name of the listing broker and agent for each property, along with any contact information supplied through the MLS, is displayed with each property, next to the price.

Sand Section

464 31 St. Street, Manhattan Beach,

464 31 St. Street, Manhattan Beach,  464 31 St. Street (4br/5ba, 4026 sqft.) is a 2003 custom build, and, curiously, one of two next-door neighbors of similar style that both have just hit the market at the same time. Each will be open this weekend for a little "comparison shopping." (If you want to go up in price more than $1M, you can also add 477 33rd to your list.)

They didn't provide interior photos of this one yet. On our visit, we entered on the middle level, noted warm walnut flooring throughout, a sizable primary suite up front and 2 more ensuite bedrooms in the back, past laundry. Downstairs, a sizable den/family room is currently being used as an office, and there's a smallish bedroom (the 4th) just off that, with double doors.

Upstairs, there are living spaces at the front and back, with the kitchen and dining in the middle. The spaces are somewhat compartmented.

All of the finishes are vintage 2003, prominently the kitchen and primary bath, which some buyers might want to refresh. In general the home is presented as it is being lived in, not very uncluttered or de-personalized and ultra-clean, as we prefer to show a home on the market.

From the official description:

"A Mediterranean beauty... This home offers a perfect mix of function and beauty bringing to life the unique design. With the spacious, open floor plan, light filled rooms, and open beamed ceilings you will feel the sense of peacefulness in this home. As you enter, you are welcomed by the sweeping staircase leading you to the three floors. The American Walnut wood floors and Cherrywood cabinets offer a sense of warmth throughout. You'll love spending time in this cook's dream kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances including a Thermador range and Sub- Zero refrigerator. Family and friends always love to gather in the kitchen, and they'll have plenty of space to do so with the large island and kitchen nook. Relax in the living room with a fireplace and French doors leading to a balcony or get cozy in the den also with a fireplace, wet bar and another balcony. Downstairs is a beautiful, spacious room that can be used for an office, kids' playroom, or home theater with French doors leading to a charming garden area."

464 31 St. Street begins at $4.496M and is open Sat. & Sun. 1-3pm.

468 31st Street, Manhattan Beach,

468 31st Street, Manhattan Beach,  468 31st Street (5br/5ba, 3745 sqft.) is a few years older (2000 build) than the neighbor noted above, a little smaller (-281 sqft.), with one more bedroom (5th) and priced a little higher (+$103K). 

It's also emptied, cleaned, painted and staged, so a different sort of presentation.

468 31st Street, Manhattan Beach, The first level features a bedroom and a bonus room that appears to have been carved out of a third garage space, with a super fun beachy theme to it.

The middle level hosts a whopping 4 bedrooms, not always easy in the Sand. All bath finishes are vintage 2000.

468 31st Street, Manhattan Beach, Upstairs, the feeling is somewhat brighter and more open than the neighboring home. A quirk of the staging: There IS a piano, but there is NOT a TV (or fake TV) anywhere, initially creating the illusion of times gone by, where the primary entertainment in this family room might be visiting musicians. (Either that or TikTok on your phone.)

On balance, this home is easier to "see" than the neighbor at 464, although both are going to invite buyers to create plans for updates after move-in.

We did kinda love the entry porch/patio area, with a conversation area under a pergola and featuring a fire pit up at the front of the house. It immediately suggests a lifestyle featuring friendliness with neighbors.

From the official description:

468 31st Street, Manhattan Beach, 468 31st Street, Manhattan Beach, "Step into this stunning Spanish Mission Colonial style home and experience the perfect blend of elegance and comfort. With an open layout and vaulted, beamed ceilings on the third floor, this home offers a spacious and inviting atmosphere.

At the heart of the home is a beautifully designed kitchen, seamlessly connected to a comfortable eat-in area and family room with its own charming fireplace. This space is ideal for both everyday living and special gatherings. The property boasts 5 bedrooms, including a luxurious primary suite with its own fireplace, an expansive walk-in closet, and an ensuite bathroom. The second level includes three additional guest bedrooms, providing ample space for family and friends. On the entry level, you'll find a full guest suite, an office loaded with built-in cabinets, and a versatile flex room perfect for a media room, home gym, or kids' playroom."

 201 19th Street, Manhattan Beach,

201 19th Street, Manhattan Beach,  201 19th Street (5br/4ba, 2284 sqft.) is a midtown walkstreet lot sale with a somewhat poetic description.

From the official description:

Tree Section

624 36th Street, Manhattan Beach,

624 36th Street, Manhattan Beach,  624 36th Street (4br/4ba, 1990 sqft.) leads off its description calling the home a "serene oasis," and TBH, our first thought was, "not another 'oasis,' really?" It's a term that does get over-used in home descriptions.

And yet!

624 36th Street, Manhattan Beach, This home is really something different, a single-level remodel of a 1940s house that doesn't miss many details, and presents something sharp, special, private, quiet and gorgeous – it really is kind of an "oasis"!

(OK, it's not an isolated, verdant spot in the midst of a vast desert – it's one house in a fully built Tree Section neighborhood – but as to the meaning intended, we're just about on board.)

624 36th Street, Manhattan Beach, The home feels like just about the most you can do within the basic 4 walls of one of these mid-century houses, with a fully realized great room in back and decent primary suite up front. The backyard area is nicely tightened up into private outdoor living space, and there's a bonus: An ample guest suite/ADU above the garage, whose bath is modeled after a European "wet room" (nice touch).

624 36th Street, Manhattan Beach, From the beautiful garden area up front (and off the primary), to the paver stone walk along the side, to the ultra modern kitchen and bright living spaces, this is one that takes a theme and runs with it, and is very pleasant and private. One to love.

2001 Palm Ave, Manhattan Beach, There are two sets of foldaway doors to the thoughtfully crafted backyard area, with covered living area with outdoor wet bar (no bbq?), a dining area and an open seating area with sunken fire pit.

The home's baths, including the primary, still feature more original granite counter tops and overall still appear original to the '06 build.

 657 27th Street, Manhattan Beach,

657 27th Street, Manhattan Beach,  657 27th Street (2br/1ba, 851 sqft.) is so small, and in such a prime location, it must be viewed as a lot sale.

Still, giving the home a look as it stands offers a window into a life (or lives) well-lived, from the home's eclectic colors to its novel decor to its surprising backyard, with a gorgeous pool and – ready? – fully outfitted music studio.

They're promising tacos on Sunday, if you're feeling hungry as well as looky-loo-ish.
