Pristine beaches, swaying palm trees, and breathtaking sunsets are part of daily life in beautiful Manhattan Beach, California. LA’s affluent city by the sea continues to be a prime location to invest in real estate due to the ever-increasing property values. Here, the culture is a myriad of families, singles and empty-nesters alike, all uniting on the common grounds of the desirable outdoorsy-meets-upscale lifestyle. Likewise, oodles of tech industry moving in nearby spurs the need for constant development in the luxury home marketplace to beckon the upscale buyer to this strip of SoCal coastline.

The locals will tell you that location within Manhattan Beach is key and the stunning modern masterpiece at 235 4th Street proves to be a perfect example. This architectural beauty commands ocean views from multiple outdoor spaces including an open grassy area and patio just off the walk street that leads directly to the beach. The walk street is a wide pedestrian-only sidewalk that makes an ideal location for families to safely access the beach.

Not only being less than two blocks from the sand and sea, this home is also situated just a few short blocks from downtown Manhattan Beach. The charming downtown village atmosphere is far from a sleepy beach town. The streets are lined with upscale restaurants that showcase renowned chefs, numerous gathering spots from bars to specialty ice cream spots, one-of-a-kind stylish boutiques, spas, salons, galleries and a handful of other lifestyle shops.

The seaside estate is 4135+ square feet with four bedrooms and six baths which includes an incredible master suite as well as a junior master suite. The floor plan also features a basement area, perfect for a work-out room or flex space to meet the needs of the homeowner. The numerous outdoor areas are spacious, practical and offer ocean views from Malibu to Palos Verdes. All outdoor decks are accessed through bi-fold or pocket Fleetwood doors making indoor/outdoor beyond enjoyable. The kitchen flows onto a deck that features the outdoor grill that is ideally located next to the kitchen. The adjacent living room opens onto a large outdoor living room patio featuring an outdoor fireplace and a backdrop ocean view from Catalina Island to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The deck off the master retreat is covered and includes built-in ceiling mount Infratech heat lamps to allow one to enjoy those cool nights year-round. The bottom floor features the famous “beach room” with direct access to the walk street and large outdoor patio and grass-covered yard.

Manhattan Beach has some of the best schools in America. Having access to excellent public and private schools are of utmost importance to this community. The home is ideally located within a short walk to the Blue Ribbon Robinson Elementary School. Nearby, less than a 10-minute drive, is American Martyrs private school, Manhattan Beach Middle School and Mira Costa High School.

The property was built by LA-based Legacy Estates and designed by Cindy Shearin of The Shearin Group. The exquisitely executed high-end design and functionality, coupled with an excellent location, make this home perfect for the couple or family that loves life, enjoys being social, and lives for dreamy sunsets.
