You can’t keep a secret forever, and it looks like the secret about 13th Street is out! This little pocket of Manhattan Beach is incredibly close to downtown, offers ocean views, and has a quiet, unique and beachy vibe that’s hard to match. Now you have the chance to be a part of it all, in this much-beloved, custom-built home. The bright and open top floor features the main living spaces, with high ceilings, lots of light, peeks at the Pacific, and distinctive style.
The owners who designed the home had, for years, operated a local shop dedicated to Mexican folk art, and traveled extensively to keep it stocked. They wanted the home to reflect what they loved, and you’ll see that in clay tile flooring, distinctive light fixtures, playful tile accents, stained glass windows and more. The floorplan features the primary suite upstairs with the living areas, with access to a small deck that also abuts the kitchen – an ideal spot for morning coffee, or another kind of sip later in the day. Up front, the main living room gets glimpses of Palos Verdes, downtown Manhattan Beach and the ocean, and has a balcony that beckons you to slow down and just sit and smell the salt air breezes, greeting neighbors as they pass by. Downstairs, there are three bedrooms, one with direct access to a saltillo-tiled patio area. A bonus room in back was created originally to host an in-ground hot tub, and now is as flexible as you might be in putting it to your own use.
There is much to love here, and much opportunity to create exactly what you want. Now, here, on one of the hottest blocks in Manhattan Beach in 2023, you finally have your ideal chance to make your new home.
