Just one home away from the sand in Manhattan Beach, you’ll love this gorgeous two-story 3+ bedroom single family home with a beautiful outdoor family room roof deck. Built in 2013, every detail has been thought through - custom furniture and decorations create a luxurious beach-house feel, an extensively equipped kitchen, new appliances throughout and a washer/dryer on the 2nd level plus one in the garage to wash away the day’s sand. Truly an inviting vacation home ideally located on one of the most beautiful beaches in California.
As you enter the home on the 1st level, you’ll immediately appreciate the custom mill work, as well as the ocean breezes and sound of waves crashing just a few steps away. To your right is the master bedroom complete with a custom built-in desk, private en suite bathroom, 42” LED-LCD HDTV Smart TV, and a beautiful king size sleigh bed. Also on the 1st level is the office/guest room, boasting a custom built-in queen size day bed where you can curl up with a book, or enjoy a peaceful night as you drift to sleep to the sound of the ocean. The office provides a Mac Pro monitor and printer should you need to get a bit of work done on your vacation. Attached to the office/guest room is an en suite, spa-like bathroom finished with a custom teak vanity, river stone flooring, and a door-less walk-in shower. This bathroom is also accessible from the garage, making beach clean-up easy without even entering the house.
Proceed up to the 2nd level and you’ll be struck by the large open floor plan kitchen, dining and family room with white-water views that capture the surf, sand and Strand. With a Dutch door on one side of the room and tri-fold doors on the other, the room truly opens to the beach beyond. The kitchen features custom cabinets, granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances including a 5-burner gas range, oven with baking/warming drawer, convection microwave, dishwasher, additional refrigerator drawers, insta-hot water, and a built-in Miele coffee maker that grinds beans and makes your morning coffee with the touch of a button. The kitchen is complete with a large selection of pots, pans, serving ware, cookware and small appliances, as well as place settings for 12. The family room features a 50” LED-LCD HDTV Smart TV, a large sofa as well as an over-sized chair for additional seating, a shell-lined fireplace, and a dry honor bar with all bar amenities. The dining room is anchored by a beautiful, English oak farm-house table that sits 8-10 and is framed by a custom built-in banquette.
Just beyond this open space is a small hallway leading to a powder room, laundry room, and the separate family suite. To one side of the family suite is a bedroom with built-in double bunk beds that easily sleep 2-4, each boasting it’s own private reading light and cubby. The other side of the family suite is comprised of the TV room with an extra-comfortable 9-foot sofa that doubles as a twin size bed, a 55” LED-LCD HDTV Smart TV, family-friendly video library, Wii, X-Box 360 and X-Box Kinect. The suite is complete with its own private bathroom featuring a large walk-in shower and double vanity.
If you’re the type to enjoy your morning coffee or sunset beverages with an unrivaled view, then look no farther than the roof deck. Accessible from both the street via a secure gate as well as the 2nd level family room, the roof deck is a room unto itself. With sofas, fire pit, heat lamps, bar table & chairs, and a custom queen-size day bed, there’s plenty of room to relax. And, with a built-in refrigerator, ice maker, sink, gas bbq, and bar serving area, there’s plenty of amenities for a perfect meal. Outdoor speakers complete the roof deck for a truly unforgettable experience
Additional amenities include a hot/cold outdoor shower, washer/dryer in the garage (so you don’t have to bring those sandy towels and bathing suits inside), bikes, surf-boards, boogie-boards, wet suits, skate boards and more. Luxury linens and toiletries, hair dryers and more are also included. Parking available for 3 cars.
Our family of four (two boys under age 5) had an amazing stay in the Zawacki family home in Manhattan Beach. We were there for some beach time around the holidays and everything was perfect! First, the house is gorgeous and spotless. It truly looks like it does in the pictures. The owners live here year-round and only make it available a few weeks a year, so it doesn’t feel like a rental vacation home, but rather like you’re staying at the beautiful home of a good friend.
There is nothing lacking in this house. For young families, there are boogie boards, skateboards, beach towels and chairs, and beach toys. There is even an X-Box for older kids. Ceiling-to-floor glass in a corner of the main living room provides a relaxing view of the ocean (those with young toddlers should take note). My boys loved using the outdoor shower to clean-off post-beach. There is also a door leading to the downstairs bathroom from the garage, and laundry in the garage as well as upstairs so it was easy to keep the sand from coming into the house. We loved the upstairs deck family room – sofas, fire pit, bbq, and more. My boys even wanted to sleep on the deck – on a warm night, I imagine you could do so!
Location is perfect. Downtown Manhattan Beach is a 5-10 minute walk down the Strand, and North End Manhattan Beach is the same distance heading north. With all the fun that Manhattan Beach and So Cal has to offer in general, it was an ideal vacation for our family.
A wonderful stay in a fabulous home. We hope to visit again sometime soon!
When I first saw this listing I thought the owner had photo shopped the beautiful sunsets. No they didn’t! From our first night there we enjoyed the same views on the amazing roof deck. My 3 children ages 5,7 & 9 even thought it was beautiful. We spent our Thanksgiving break here and it was perfect! The house is beautifully decorated and super clean. It is also steps from the beach, a view you enjoy almost all day from the living room. My kids were thrilled to find boogie boards & wet suits stocked in the garage, they felt like real surfers which just added to the California vibe. We woke up each morning, put on our suits and walked to the beach. While the older kids boogie boarded I was able to have my youngest on the nearby swing set. We were concerned about parking a car but the home has tons of parking is within walking distance of many restaurants, we barely drove. The owner provided bikes too! There was plenty of space for my family of 5, there were also plenty of video games and board games but the weather was so perfect we didn’t really use them. Only downside is that my kids now want to leave the East Coast and move to California! We can’t wait to get back!!!
It's rare that properties live up to their descriptions, but in this case, the house exceeded all our expectations. Just 50m from the beach, and set up the hill, it's the perfect California getaway. We loved the rooftop terrace, overlooking the sand and beach, barbecuing and watching the sun go down over the Pacific. Well appointed kitchen, sunny airy living rooms with TVs and games for the kids, super comfortable beds and crisp linen. Clean and spacious bathrooms, plus a big garage with all the sports gear you need for a weeks stay. We were delighted to make use of boogie boards, skateboards, bikes and all the beach gear we needed. The house easily fitted our 6 person family: parents and 4 kids of various ages from teenage to toddler. We we really looked after, and the owners have put a lot of care and thought into this stylish home. We would award it a "Net Promoter 10". Much more we could say but mostly that we loved it and cannot wait to get back to this house in Manhattan Beach. In fact, we are already missing it.
