Weekend Opens (3/29-3/30)

By Dave Fratello | March 28th, 2008
To plan your open-house tours for this week, use MB Confidential's online list of Manhattan Beach open houses (it's mobile-friendly!).

Hill Section

916 9th is a perennial favorite here at MBC; it made Mrs. MBC's year-end list. It's the great room/living room/yard combo, mainly, that works. Offers 5br/5ba, 4550 sq. ft. It was on the market last year, as high as $3.275m, but it's at $2.895m now. The first posted open since its late-February return is Sun. 1-4pm.

923 1st offers the lay public the chance to see a $7.6m home, much as they were once offered the chance to see an $8m home. But please recognize this one requires advance arrangements/RSVP (see info in the BR open house listings). Worth a shot. Sun. 3-5pm.

Sand Section

400 3rd (pictured) is Mrs. MBC's pick this week, though – just like her pick last week – it's not posted as open. Well, we suppose that just walking by any old day could be delightful. 400 3rd is a lovely, large (4br/4ba, 4000 sq. ft.) classically styled beach home on a corner lot down in MB's South End. A couple of ocean peeks = bonus. Starts at $3.499m.

341 10th is a South End flat walkstreet home right next to downtown that we featured last week, when it was only open Saturday. Definitely worth a look for its great style and materials. Starts at $3.3m. Open Sun. 1-4pm.

228 29th Place is ultra-cool, unlike anything we've seen recently in the Sand. Big wows, big views, and a price that has moderated from a big $3.049m last year to $2.499m now. (NOTE: The newest reduction of $130k just occurred Saturday.) If you haven't yet seen it, do. Open Sat. & Sun., 1-4pm.

Tree Section

621 Marine (pictured) is a custom-built (2002), "rustic Spanish" with 5br/4ba and 3100 sq. ft.

As we noted previously, the owners just purchased it last year (March 2007) for $2.436m (double checked) and they're offering it now for $2.489m (double checked!).

Open Sun. 1-5pm.

560 36th (second pic) is daring for a speckie, with an ultra-modern design in a land of Mediterraneans and Cape Cods. Offers 4br/4ba and 4040 sq. ft., but it's not priced at $4m, just $2.999m. A bit close to the armory and Sand Dune Park. Open Sat. and Sun. 1-4pm.

2611 Palm is a new one in the Trees – well, it has been new for some time (first offered Jan. 2007), but it's worth a first mention here anyway. Plenty charming, with some unique details and 5br/4ba, 3200 sq. ft., priced at $2.399m. Its twin (with reverse layout) is at 2309 Pacific (now at $2.099m). Both are open Sat. & Sun. 1-4pm.
