599 35th Street Manhattan Beach CAWith the sale of 599 35th in the Tree Section, we have our first winner in MB Confidential's "Bet the House" contest.

This stylish 3br remodel listed on Jan. 11 asking $2.495M.

Then, in our first "Bet the House" post, we asked you:

Chances are, if you're going to find something, it'll be in the Tree Section, and quite small and/or in a less than superb location.

Here's a look at what's been out on the market and selling this year so far.


The least pricey properties in the Trees are typically along Rosecrans, where lots are smaller and there's a bit more of a stigma, holding prices back somewhat. Nonetheless, prices have risen consistently in recent years, to unprecedented heights.

722 Rosecrans (2br/1ba, 880 sqft.) is asking $1.195M, at 99 DOM as we post. Nearby, slightly larger 760 Rosecrans (3br/2ba, 1050 sqft.) closed last October
