By Dave Fratello | December 7th, 2014

It's a busier weekend than expected with some new listings. We're a little pressed for time, so we're mainly sharing the official descriptions along with the listings.

For your weekend reading, you may enjoy this new post from CaliforniaBeaches.com about Bruce's Beach here in MB. Nicely done, and seemingly important right now.

Tree Section

2001 Agnes (5br/4ba, 3470 sq. ft.) is a warm, well-designed Spanish in a prime location. From the description:

Warm & welcoming with many architectural features & an extremely functional layout that offers multiple options for entertaining & daily living... The main level features a formal living room which is open to the second level & a formal dining room.

Sand Section

448 23rd Place (3br/4ba, 1840 sq. ft.) is a modern townhome on the alley very near Grand View school. From the official description:

East MB

1774 Gates (5br/5ba, 3620 sq. ft.) is a bit like yesterday's house at yesterday's prices.

The 2003-built Mediterranean is actually fully refreshed inside, with new carpet and paint, and polished stone floors. It's one of the many Mediterraneans built in the prior cycle, but for this size of a house you'd expect a price into the $2 million range.

Not here: The start at $1.699M is meant to draw immediate interest, and to account for the location right on a corner with busy Aviation Blvd. From the description:

"This spacious 3600 square foot home features: A dramatic double door two story entry, Graceful curving staircase, Travertine floor living room, Formal dining room with French Doors to lush landscaped yard, Center island kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances, Master Suite retreat with dual sided fireplace and spa-like bath and big walk in closet, Fabulous family room with fireplace and French doors to sunny west facing patio and yard. A total of five bedrooms (one on the first floor) plus 4.5 baths. In move in condition it will quench your thirst for quality and value!"

1774 Gates starts at $1.699M and is open Sun. 1-4pm.

1747 2nd (3br/2ba, 1445 sq. ft.) is a smallish remodel on a big lot with a pool. From the description:
