3012 N Poinsettia Avenue Manhattan Beach CAJust about the only downside is a smallish yard area behind the garage, but most people in the Tree Section can tell you what that's like.

Sand Section

420 9th420 9th Street Manhattan Beach CA  (5br/4ba, 3100 sqft.) is an original walkstreet home with additions made over the years, and a floorplan that requires some understanding.

It has also been well-lived-in and surely loved, but presents now as a major fixer or land-value sale.

420 9th Street Manhattan Beach CAWhat's a full-lot property worth on arguably one of the best flat family walkstreets? Maybe here we find out the prevailing number.

From the official description:

420 9th Street Manhattan Beach CA"The community feel of the flat walk streets of Manhattan Beach has always put homes in this area in high demand. And this home is at the epicenter of walk street life in the sand section. It's easy to see why nothing on this particular street seems to ever come up for sale: it's so close to the best beach, downtown, the pier, restaurants, the jogging path, and grocery store. And this 3,100 square foot two-story 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath home, twice remodeled and enhanced (most recently in the 80's) has great bones, just waiting for your imagination. The lower level currently includes a formal living room, dining room, sitting area with brick wood-burning fireplace and grill, laundry room, bedroom and full bath. There is a courtyard connecting to the extra-wide two car garage off the alley. Upstairs has high ceilings, and a grand family area with brick wood-burning fireplace, three very lavish bedrooms, including a master suite with a walk out balcony overlooking the walk-street, spacious bath and walk-in closet. There are two additional baths on this floor. There is even a steam room and lots of extra storage. It is perfectly situated in the middle of the block. This street is the hub of so many social family gatherings, annual chili cook-offs, potlucks, with a constant hum of children's laughter. Even if you were to rebuild from scratch, you would have just the home you wanted for around the same price as a spec home, but in the best location."

420 9th is at $4.300M and is open Sat. & Sun. 1-4pm.
