About This Property
Brand new construction on a Sand section corner lot just over two blocks from the beach. Outstanding new Coastal Contemporary from Steve Lazar and Design+Build by South Swell. Mesmerizing ocean views and just a short walk to the beach and downtown Manhattan Beach. The home begins with a 3-car garage and basement level (which can accommodate a family room and wine grotto and also houses a guest suite) and culminates with an open-air rooftop lounge and adjoining entertainment room.
The main design element here was to create an indoor-outdoor feel that maximizes the connection with the beach surroundings and enhances the Sand section lifestyle. This is accomplished by extending the exterior finishes into the interior living spaces and by connecting the outdoor decks to those interior spaces via accordion-style folding doors such that, along with the ever-present ocean views, one experiences almost a seamless interplay of indoor and outdoor elements.
The top floor, in particular, with its multi-purpose entertainment room (it could also serve as an in-home office suite) that opens to an outdoor lounge area with built-in fire pit and views of the Manhattan Beach pier, skillfully blends the interior with the exterior.
The home has a reverse floor plan with the common living areas of the 3rd floor arranged as a split-level great room that includes a family room with fireplace. There's also a sun-filled ocean-view casual beach living room with oversized awning windows and a high ceiling with dual ceiling fans that opens to a covered deck. At the great room's center is an open galley kitchen with high-end appliances (Wolf, Subzero) and dual dishwashers as well as an adjoining formal dining space, a dining nook and a second covered deck plumbed for a gas BBQ.
The home offers many amenities including a basement-level media room wired for 5.1 surround sound, a refrigerated wine cellar, a 3-car garage wired for an electric vehicle charging station, multi-zone heating and air conditioning, and dual hot water heaters.
Throughout the home are wide-plank engineered European white oak floors and caesarstone counters in addition to porcelain tile in all the bathrooms. The home’s four levels are easily accessed via a 4-stop elevator as well as a dramatic floating staircase with 3” thick oak treads.
