Here's hoping you had a great 4th and are ready to continue with an awesome Summer.

This week, we're must pointing to Tree Section listings, though there are a few more sprinkles around town.

2300 Elm (4br/3ba, 2800 sqft.) is an inspired remodel of a formerly tired,

This is a story that's only really a "bookend" to the story of one spec project.

That would be 750 30th St. (5br/7ba, 5070 sqft.), a new "beach plantation" style home that has just closed for $4.500M.

The sale itself is notable, for sure. 

It's only the fourth-ever sale to close in the Tree Section over $4M that wasn't near American Martyrs church. (Click for more on the Martyrs area and active listings there.)

Yesterday we had good news as inventory among Manhattan Beach real estate ballooned (ha ha) to 63 homes – and it's up even "higher" now to 64 as of Saturday morning.

Saturday brought good news for all of Manhattan Beach – the beaches are open again after a mysterious "petroleum product" incident earlier in the week. (Source still unknown.) You may resume your regularly scheduled weekend beachgoing activity. (For more see this DigMB post.)
