The “tree house” at 3116 Manhattan Avenue in Manhattan Beach has fallen out of escrow and come back on the market. Why do I call it the tree house? Because there is a full sized live ficus tree growing up right through the middle of the home! Now you just don’t see that every day! After the previous buyers failed to perform, the sellers have hugely reduced the price from it’s original price of $3.1 Million; this home is now just waiting for a buyer to have some vision and see past the tree to the fantastic ocean views this older home affords. Current zoning probably couldn’t duplicate it, but you could remodel it and make it a showplace. And remember, all Fabulous South Bay clients get a free architectural consult with our “in-house” (my husband) architect, Garth Sheriff.[idx-listing mlsnumber=”S10054472″]
This unique home came on the market last Friday, but didn’t go on the MLS until today. I felt like I had stepped into a resort home in Hawaii when we entered it. Complete with fake geckos on the wall,it’s got the whole Hawaii Five-O thing going on. It’s not for everyone, but there is a lot of space and a lot of versatility in this home. It has a wonderful ocean view area up top with a wet bar and flat screen TV, and a private gym has been set up as well. For the Hill Section, it’s a good price too. Give us a call if you’d like to see it.
Out on brokers open today we saw a great house in Hermosa Beach — five bedrooms total, with 2 sets of “jack and jill” suites with a shared bath between two bedrooms and a really nice master suite with a great bath. The home had a very nice layout and a terrific ocean view, especially from the rooftop deck. The rooms were spacious and the kitchen was top quality.[idx-listing mlsnumber=”S10096336″]
