Life by the ocean is redefined by this modern, warm, enchanting coastal home. That impossible-to-find, perfect combination of indoor and outdoor living is met here. You will never want to leave this dream floorplan with virtually every surface completely refreshed in 2021. Located at the beginning of an idyllic block of North Manhattan Beach on a full-size lot, the residence was custom-built by a family to spread out comfortably and enjoy ocean views from all three levels. What’s life like living here? Linger on the private front patio to enjoy your morning tea and newspaper. Stroll down to the Strand and grab brunch on the way home a block down the street at any of the North End cafes. Coming inside feels like a sanctuary with soaring ceilings, beautifully-cased sweeping windows and French doors opening to the salt air breezes. With the living, dining and kitchen areas designed thoughtfully on the first floor, it makes for an easy carry of groceries from the garage right into the kitchen. Countertop space abounds in this true chef’s kitchen in the heart of the home where you can easily keep an eye in all directions as you prepare dinner. All three bedrooms are up, including the master suite with a completely remodeled bathroom. The second floor landing provides an extra den and built-in office nook. The bonus room on the third floor is the perfect office-guest retreat with vaulted tongue-and-groove ceilings, a wet bar and double-width sliding glass doors opening to a large deck offering those calming ocean views. And the hard-to-find amenities throughout you will swoon for, including expansive kitchen cabinets with pantry, storage closets in all the right places, a full laundry room with sink, outdoor shower to clean off when you return from the beach, distinct rear mud room or ‘drop zone’… all the spaces that make life that much more comfortable. This is the most special home you could imagine for your best life everyday, for entertaining for the upcoming holidays and all of life’s celebrations ahead.
