Weekend Opens (4/7-4/8/18)

By Dave Fratello | April 7th, 2018

Quite a few new listings emerged this week, though few of the new ones seem to be open.

233 Anderson Street Manhattan Beach CAConsider the massive++ Hill Section Southwestern at 233 Anderson... $6.5M for a huge house w/ so much space they have not just a pool and a pool table, but also an indoor climbing wall (!).

They don't have open houses at places like that, mainly for liability reasons. (Wanna see it? Call Dave. He's a reasonably experienced climber.)

It seems this year has been really short on new listings in East Manhattan Beach. So, below, we'll feature the few new open houses there first.

Our video this week features 233 Anderson (first), 3529 Pine1616 Gates and more:

Sand Section

Wow, in the Sand this week, there are no new listings open, but a few with cuts, and one with a price increase. (Let's see how that goes.) These reviews are recycled:

512 3rd512 3rd Street Manhattan Beach CA (3br/3ba, 2450 sqft.) is a very custom midsized home in the South End.

It would appear to be a 1980s expansion of the original home. (Officially the build date is 1948, but the home's obviously newer.) There were also clearly more recent updates to the kitchen and baths.

The front of the home features tall, beamed ceilings and an open floorplan for living/dining areas and an open kitchen. One bedroom is also downstairs, currently showing as an office.

512 3rd Street Manhattan Beach CAHead up the stairs, and there's an open loft set up now as a family room with a large-screen TV.

The master is bright and open, with a large seating area. More from the official description:

"Effortless, mellow beachy lifestyle meets sleek, mid-century modern architecture in an exceptional Manhattan Beach location. Enjoy utter privacy in your front patio and laugh alongside good company around the fire pit and dazzling stone details. Open to the living and dining rooms, the kitchen is the focal point of your entertaining space, centered around a lovely stone island, beckoning family and friends to gather. Relax in the separate family room and indulge in the oversized master suite and walk-in closet to match. Incredibly walkable..."
