Dream House: Manhattan Beach Oceanfront Paradise (25 Photos)
$27,000,000 | 5 Beds 6 Baths | 5,329 Sq. Ft.
At the intersection of the two most beautiful and photographed streets in Manhattan Beach, 1800 The Strand is a rare gem and perhaps the finest beachfront home to hit the market in a long time. Uniquely positioned on a prized south-facing corner lot, the property has sweeping panoramic views from Palos Verdes, Catalina, Santa Monica to Malibu – and the iconic Manhattan Beach Pier.
Unheard of on the Strand is the parking for 7 cars: a 5 car interior garage with 2 car lifts (hermetically sealed below) and two extra parking spots outside. Centered around a stunning floating circular staircase (constructed in one piece and transported to the home during construction) 1800 The Strand boasts an open floor plan design with 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths and a 3-stop elevator. With jaw dropping views and beach front access, the overall design lends itself to the best of both family coastal living and elegant entertaining.
Among the features of 1800 the Strand are the gourmet kitchen designed with an eye to catered affairs, a tiered living and dining room with sweeping views of magnificent sunsets, a 360 bottle wine cellar, and a Strand-level entertaining area including a beach room with fireplace and built-in bar. Just outside are seating and dining areas located right on the Strand but with privacy assured from a well thought out landscape design. The crowning jewel of 1800 the Strand is surely the primary suite with its loft design and endless views and legendary sunsets from the bedroom with cozy fireplace and the glass-encased deck, his and her walk-in closets/dressing rooms and his and her bathrooms.
1800 The Strand lies a mere four blocks from the 5-star restaurants, vibrant bars and boutique shopping of downtown Manhattan Beach – yet far enough away to feel like a sanctuary. You can arrive via LAX (just 8 minutes by car) or via your general aviation to LAX, Torrance Municipal Airport-Zamperini Field or Hawthorne Municipal Airport (each just 15-20 minutes away). Manhattan Beach is an extremely unique beach community in that it is close to all that Los Angeles has to offer, Major League Sports, the Art World, Entertainment, Dining, Shopping and more. For the beach lover, car enthusiast, entertainer and world traveler – there can be no finer house than 1800 The Strand.
