A certain style in home design took Manhattan Beach by storm the past few years.

It's got an island feel, a beachy combination of white, bright open spaces. Generous use of white siding, white cabinetry, white marble (please say Carrara, not Carrera), and lighter-stained, wide-plank, flooring... for starters. The style has drawn the informal, but consistent, label: "Plantation."

It's taken a lot to shake the antebellum South connotations of that term.

Mostly, it took time and repetition. Variously, builders have come to call this style "Beach Plantation" or even "Coastal Plantation."

It seemed that $3.500M or so was the going rate for a time. You saw 3101 Maple (5br/5ba, 3200 sqft.) pre-sell at that price in January this year, as well as 868 27th (5br/6ba, 3520 sqft.) [pictured] at $3.520M in April this year.

Two new construction listings in the Trees took that pricing as gospel and shot for the same mark.

2409 North Poinsettia Avenue Manhattan Beach CA2409 N. Poinsettia (4br/5ba, 3550 sqft.) came out at $3.499M in late January. (We'll put aside the fact that it began at $160K lighter before upping the price 51 minutes into the listing.)

To their credit,…
