Weekend Opens (4/23-4/24/16)

By Dave Fratello | April 23rd, 2016

There's no shortage at all of open houses in Manhattan Beach this weekend. What's curious, though, is that very few of the open houses are new listings. There just wasn't a rush this week.

Last week we saw 53 MB listings holding open houses. This week, it's 49 listings that will be open. But just 3 of the newest listings in town are part of this large group.

Our video this week features a downtown TH at 1205 Bayview, the Liberty Village home at 2108 Wendy, newly remodeled (and already sold!) 1416 11th and more:

Sand Section

1205 Bayview Drive Manhattan Beach CA

1205 Bayview (3br/4ba, 2125 sqft.) is an early-90s TH right in the thick of downtown.

The views are nicely featured, with corner windows in a few places. You see the pier, ocean and PV.

One bedroom suite is on the lowest level. The master and another are on the midlevel, and all of the common spaces, with views, are up top.

Views to the west are protected, inasmuch as they are over the neighboring unit of this 2-unit townhome set (the unit on Manhattan Ave.). There are great views to the south, also, but the structure(s) to that side are older and it's uncertain what might happen if new construction were to go up there.

A lot of buyers will want to update the baths, at a minimum. (None of the bedrooms or bathrooms are shown in the listing photos.) They're pretty original to the early 90s. The kitchen has more recent upgrades, with dark-wood cabinets and granite countertops.

Disclosure: Dave has discussed this property with clients.

1205 Bayview starts at $3.399M and is open Sun. from 2-4pm.
