By Dave Fratello | October 28th, 2017

If you haven't figured out how to stay busy this weekend, you're not trying. 

As they said simply on DigMB: "Walk, Race and Party this Weekend in Manhattan Beach."

Youth soccer is getting compelling, pro hockey and basketball have begun, and there's plenty more to keep you occupied, but...

Let's go Dodgers!

Sometimes you just have to let that epic collapse happen and then epically pick yourself up and fight. Let's go, guys!

This week's video features all the week's new listings, including some not open. Video has 221 Larsson, 316 34th, 323 23rd1534 Curtis and 1226 3rd. Here it is:

Hill Section

221 Larsson Street Manhattan Beach CA221 Larsson (3br/3ba, 2050 sqft.) is a nicely upgraded family home on a narrow lot, offering nice city views and a little grassy yard.

Not quite enough yard? Larsson Parkette is just two doors over!

Disclosure: Dave is friendly with the owners. Language from the official description:

"Traditional Single-Family home located in the prestigious Hill Section of Manhattan Beach with Panoramic city and mountain views! This completely remodeled home features 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms including a master suite with jacuzzi and walk in closet. Upper main floor great room has a spacious formal living and dining area, vaulted ceilings, brick fireplace, and expansive outdoor deck area overlooking private backyard. Gourmet chef's kitchen with granite center island, lots of counter space with glass tile back splash, custom cabinetry, adjacent family room. Additional features include hardwood floors, abundant natural light, ceiling fans, mirrored wardrobe closets, and more! Attached 2-car garage with ample storage and additional driveway parking."

221 Larsson begins at $1.995M and is open Sat. & Sun. 1-4pm.

Sand Section

323 23rd Street Manhattan Beach CA323 23rd (5br/5ba, 3120 sqft.) offers an interesting investment opportunity.

You can treat the purchase as a single-lot sale (2700 sqft.) that happens to come along with two separate structures. One is an expanded 1950s-ish cottage and one an early-90s tower with a roof deck (although only 2br). Both are presented in rental-caliber condition and would perform OK for some time.

Rebuilding here, you could create 2 separate SFRs or presumably join the lots and build 2 townhomes. The overall proposition will require pulling out the slide rule, but it will be compelling at some price point. From the official description:

"Built on a 30 x 90 street to alley lot, these two detached single-family homes (2 APN's) offer breathtaking views from Malibu to Palos Verdes. 323 23rd Street consists of 1502 Sqft. 2 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms featuring a grandfathered roof deck with stunning panoramic and sunset views of the Pacific. The master bath has a large glass shower completed with spa-like tub. 324 23rd Place has 1616 Sqft. of living area with an oversized tandem garage. This 3 bed 2 bath has a generous living room with large fireplace, updated flooring and lots of natural light. A prime sand section location with its proximity to downtown Manhattan Beach, shopping, restaurants, and award winning Grand View Elementary."

323 23rd begins begins at $4.100M and is open Sat. 12-3pm and Sun. 1-4pm.

East MB

1534 Curtis Avenue Manhattan Beach CA1534 Curtis (3br/2ba, 1600 sqft.) is a full-size (7500 sqft. lot) right next door to new construction at 1540 Curtis (asking $3.525M).

They talk about it as a fixer, so look at it with that in mind. But with lots settling these days around $1.5M anyway, that could be superfluous. From the official description:

"Diamond in the rough! This home has endless opportunities to remodel existing home or build new. This charming fixer features 3 beds, 2baths, 1,590 sq. ft. living space or a 50x150 Buildable lot. South facing backyard with beautiful city views! Located in the Mira Costa School District, one of the best school districts in South Bay near parks, beaches, restaurants, shops and more."

1534 Curtis begins at $1.495M and is open Sat. & Sun. 1-4pm.
