Manhattan Beach New Listings (8/27-8/28/22)

By Dave Fratello | August 27th, 2022

If you were around most of the Summer (guilty!), you could feel the change this week as everyone returned to Manhattan Beach, schools started up and our community began to have a bit more of a buzz. Welcome back!

There are just a few new listings this week, but for the first time this year, it seems that buyers have multiple options in East Manhattan. It's a good time to comparison shop. We think you'll love the new look at 1170 Shelley (Dave's listing), for instance.

Open house times are listed below, but you can also click "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. Blog author Dave Fratello of Edge Real Estate Agency is not the listing agent unless so stated with the listing. (As with the first one, 1170 Shelley.) Excerpts of the listing agent's description of each property are provided in quotes.

Click on any property address or photo to open a new page with full listing details, all photos, listing broker and agent information, and other MLS information. Any observations and comments about listings represent the professional judgments and opinions of the author, Dave Fratello, not the listing brokers or agents. Please see our blog disclaimer.


East Manhattan Beach

1170 Shelley Street Manhattan Beach CA1170 Shelley Street  (4br/3ba, 1858 sqft.) is Dave's and Edge's listing on a quiet, private street.

It has a new look and new price, as we repainted, refreshed and renewed the property for this presentation. We felt some real excitement at the Friday brokers' open, including from some agents who had seen the home before.

Simply put, this home is straightforward and ready to go.

From the official description:

"Newer stucco and recently redone, reflective roof. Drought-tolerant landscaping both front and back. And what a lifestyle!

114 S Herrin Avenue Manhattan Beach CA114 S Herrin Avenue (3br/2ba, 1601 sqft.) is a remodeled 1-story SFR just one block east of both the local elementary school and the high school.

We know many buyers will look at Herrin as well as our Edge listing at 1170 Shelley, and encourage the comparison, but we'll limit comment on this one to be as fair as possible.

Sand Section

204 38th Street Manhattan Beach CA204 38th Street (3br/2ba, 1041 sqft.) is an interesting case, a smallish El Porto classic cottage that already sold this year but is back.

The prior sale closed in May for $2.200M, but it's back now $99K higher.

It's buttoned up and cute, but also very artfully presented, especially by comparison to prior listings. A little imaginative design can go a long way. Check out all the pics.

Hill Section

219 N Dianthus Street Manhattan Beach CA219 N Dianthus Street (4br/4ba, 3300 sqft.) asks: How much would you like to have your whole common area enjoy a dramatic, wide, forever ocean view?

If we say that, you're going to want to see more.

219 N Dianthus Street Manhattan Beach CAThis is in a small portion of the Hill Section where "tall and skinny" homes prevail. In this case, the lot is 26' wide and a total of 3352 sqft. But the home's 3 levels allows ample living space spread around, even a little backyard.
