Want a livable Manhattan Beach home for under $2M?

It can be done. Just adjust your expectations properly. Here are just a few recent sales just under that magic number, each in different parts of town.

In East Manhattan, the sale we're looking at is 1731 9th Street Manhattan Beach CA1731 9th (4br/3ba, 2300 sqft.). It's a 1970s build with updates that are more like 7-8 years old.
