Tree Section

2517 Elm (4br/5ba, 3200 sqft.) is new construction in the Trees.

There's a familiar, wide-open floorplan, but with a twist.

2517 Elm Avenue Manhattan Beach CAThe family room area in back that does open to the backyard opens to the side, not directly to the back. This creates the option for an outdoor room or dining area flowing along the rear family area, while maintaining a bit of yard.

Flexibility is also the watchword upstairs. At the top of the landing, there's a sizable open space that can serve as the kids' living room/homework area upstairs, or could conceivably be closed off and made into a 5th bedroom with bathroom access without great hassle.

2517 Elm Avenue Manhattan Beach CALook, feel and materials are all down the middle in terms of current tastes.

861 12th Court Manhattan Beach CA861 12th Ct (3br/2ba, 1187 sqft.) is a darling little cottage that looked great 18 months ago, but looks even better now.

861 12th Court Manhattan Beach CAIt sold back in Summer '18 for $2.100M, but then had a different kitchen, exterior and flooring. Those features and others have been notably upgraded under a single designer vision, making this a simple, classically inspired, modern beach cottage through and through.

Bonus neighborhood note: This is just steps from the newest Two Guns coffee shop in town on MBB, a nice daily stop.
