Tree Section

724 13th724 13th Street Manhattan Beach CA (6br/7ba, 4850 sqft.) continues the emerging trend of the South Martyrs area attaining new development to match its 20-year-old re-zoning, which makes this "Tree Section" area more like a Sand Section district.

Lots here are typically 3000 sqft., a tad larger than a Sand Section lot but much smaller than a typical Tree Section lot. The city allows 3-story, 30' homes with less requirement for outdoor space, encouraging large new homes like this one.

A comp is up the block at 653 13th (4br/6ba, 3375 sqft.), a new home that's 1500 sqft. smaller on a (tiny) 2000 sqft. lot with some ocean views. It sold for $4.542M in January. Now 724 13th begins nearly $1M higher at $5.495M.

724 13th Street Manhattan Beach CAOne nice asset to the home today, as it towers over 2-story homes nearby, is the feeling of almost 360-degree views. There's no ocean, but you can see treetops and rooftops almost forever, especially to the south and east. We even glimpsed part of the PV peninsula from the back.
