Property Description

Sitting on a corner lot in the picturesque Hill Section, this sprawling three-story, 5700 square-foot Mediterranean represents a historical moment in Manhattan Beach history. Built in 1985 by the esteemed Steve Legare, the home was the first large residential property of its kind. Standing on a 6501 square-foot lot, this classic build is perfect for any buyer who needs space. The foyer features a gorgeous curved staircase, a piece of functional artwork wowing from the moment of entry. Ascend to find the heart of the home – living room, dining room, and expansive kitchen/family room. The vaulted cedar ceilings create height and enhance the sense of vastness. Arched, full-length windows throughout the home offer incredible views from Downtown LA to Catalina. Built to entertain, this home includes three fireplaces, an old-school built-in bar, and ample room to mill about – a staple characteristic of this home that seems to never end. The ground floor hosts four bedrooms, including the spacious Owner’s Suite, complete with a sprawling bathroom and cedar walk-in closet. One bedroom/office with en-suite and two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill connector are perfect for large families or empty nesters in need of extra space. Descend to the basement for a massive spare bedroom with en suite, spacious laundry room, wine cellar, and gym complete with sauna. Just when you think the house cannot offer any additional space, the six-car garage provides more. The home is topped, literally and figuratively, by its 200+ SF rooftop deck, a luxurious relic from pre-zoning days. The deck is one of the highest points in Manhattan Beach, level with the 5th St. water tower. Enjoy panoramic, unblocked views of the San Gabriel Mountains, Downtown LA, Catalina Island, and nearly every street of the beloved Manhattan Beach.
