Think you can’t have it all? Off Market Listing at 2104 Palm Ave in Manhattan Beach

One thing the Manhattan Beach homes don’t always offer the luxury home buyer is space.  There are the occasional oversized lots in the hill section but 2104 Palm Manhattan Beach other than that there just isn’t just much in the way of the great outdoors.

That’s certainly not the case with the rare opportunity offered at 2104 Palm Ave in the tree section of Manhattan Beach.  Currently off market and not on the MLS, this home sits on two adjacent lots offering a beautiful home and not only a yard, but a yard that most local soccer teams would be envious of.  The home itself offers almost 4500 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6 baths and the combined lot size is almost 10,000 feet which is almost unheard of in this part of town.  Built in 2006, the home has been meticulously maintained and updated and offers a pool and spa in addition to the best sports court that you can imagine.  Not currently on the market, the home is for sale at $7,999,000 with listing agent Greg Maffei of Re/Max.

The home can be shown to qualified buyers.  Please contact us for a private showing and find out more about this very rare opportunity.  Contact us to see other Manhattan Beach pocket listings and off market homes before they hit the market.

A Bank Owned Home in Manhattan Beach? 665 33rd Street in the Tree Section

By Keith Kyle665 33rd Street Manhattan Beach

It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen a bank owned home in Manhattan Beach.  There are still a limited number of foreclosures in the South Bay, but qith homes now valued beyond the former peak and prices rising daily in Manhattan Beach it would seem almost impossible that someone would be foreclosed on but this is clearly a remnant of a market significantly different just 2 years ago.  With the foreclosure process taking a long time we’re just now seeing this on the market.

Those trees, those trees, those wonderful trees

By Keith KyleManhattan Beach Tree Section Homes

One of the more popular areas in Manhattan Beach is the tree section.   It has a great community feel, sits west of Sepulveda (meaning it’s closer to the beach and no major streets need to be crossed to get there), offers some of the best schools in the state and larger homes than in the sand section.

So why is it called the tree section you ask?  It must be all of those trees…..

While there are more trees in the tree section than in other parts of Manhattan Beach, that’s not why the area has this unique name.  The name is actually derived from the street names.  Streets such as Walnut, Pine, Oak, Palm and Elm make up the bulk of the streets that travel north and south.

Regardless of the name it’s one of the more sought after neighborhoods in all of the South Bay.  Visit our tree section homes for sale page to see the current MLS listings.
