Strand Corner Beauty Nets $15.4M

By Dave Fratello | September 8th, 2017

Let's take the chance to appreciate a special Strand home on occasion of its sale.

3420 The Strand Manhattan Beach CA3420 The Strand (5br/6ba, 5500 sqft.) is a custom 2003-built corner-lot Cape Cod.

That's an awfully nice spot along the walkstreet, with (of course) unblockable views.

The listing description calls it a "premier Oceanfront Masterpiece" where "no expense has been spared in executing the finest craftsmanship and detail." The home is labeled "Seaside Architecture as Art" and "a once-in-a-generation opportunity."

3420 The Strand Manhattan Beach CA3420 The Strand Manhattan Beach CAHumble? Not really. But if you can back it up, who needs humility?

With $15.400M in greenbacks, a buyer has agreed with the bold claims about the home. It was a must have.

Was the seller a bit ambitious to list it at $17.995M to begin? OK, sure. 

The discussion of dollars, however, later turned to something of a rational appeal to the would-be Strand owner: "elite Strand construction" can take 3 years, see, and at a reduced price, this one was already (perhaps) below replacement cost. So if this is what you want, went the argument, here's your one and only chance.

As we noted, they found that person who agreed, more or less (the buyer took $1.1M off the last list price), and this one became one of the top 3 sales of a move-in-ready home on The Strand in the past 3 years.

We'll post more photos here and down below, under the pics, you'll see all of the Strand sales of the past 3 years together in date order, most recent first. (Email subscribers will have to view the post on the website to see those.)
