Weekend Opens

By Dave Fratello | February 23rd, 2008
There are not a bunch of new listings this week, but here are some that are worth a look this weekend if you're out:

131 Kelp (pictured; click for details via Redfin) is a small 2br/2ba, 1400 sq. footer in El Porto – er, "North Manhattan Beach." (Did you know there's a street in MB named Kelp? It's between 40th and 41st.) It's cozy but on the cute side. Where else can you get ocean views (from the deck) for $1.095m? Open Sun. 1-4.

At the other end of town, lovers of the South End might love the southernmost offering in MB at 207 Homer. (Did you know there's a street in MB named Homer?) This one can be tough to find: go a half block south of 1st St., then look just east of Manhattan Ave. (Former address is 80 Manhattan Ave.) Built in 1967, the home offers 3br/3ba and 1800 sq. ft. for $1.779m. (No pics in the listing as we post, but they should come up shortly.) Open Sun. 1-4.

In the Hill Section near downtown, you can peek at the peculiar "flag lot" home at 612 11th (see previous story, "Flag It As Overpriced"). Open Sat. & Sun. 1-4.

In the Trees, check out 3516 Palm (5br/4ba, 3250 sq. ft.) (pictured), a sharp, newer home that starts at $1.849m. Open Sun. 2-4.

Also 523 Marine, which was on the market about 6 weeks ago – no, we checked, it was in Summer/Fall 2006. It's a cute cottage (3br/2ba, 1625 sq. ft.) that was purchased for $1.310m in Sept. 2006, and is now up at the fairly flat price of $1.379m.

No pick from Mrs. MBC this week, however. She needs to be wowed.
