Out of Manhattan – Homes We Like – 1032 6th Street Hermosa Beach

By Keith KyleOcean View Townhomes in Hermosa Beach

It’s surprising to see that 1032 6th Street in Hermosa Beach is still on the market as we liked it when it first hit the market and still think it’s a great property.  Part of the challenge for this home is that it’s competing with new construction townhomes built by Lazaar Design+Build just a block away at 1072 & 1074 7th Street and 2 homes on Pine, but given the great views and beautiful details it’s still surprising that it remains for sale.  The home has a great open feel and floorplan, beautiful ocean views and unlike most townhomes, it has a small yard area.  This fully detached townhome looks and feels like a single family home and is definitely worth a look.

612 John in the Manhattan Beach Hill Section

There’s generally compromise involved with South Bay real estate.  If you want to live near the beach you’re not 612 John Streetgoing to have a yard….if you want a bigger house you can’t live near the beach….if you want a pool you’re in the wrong city.  The home at 612 John, however, offers it all.  The home sits in the prestigious hill section with panoramic ocean views on a tremendous lot slightly under 10,000 feet.  In a town where a non ocean front home recently sold for $3,250,000 on a 1,372 foot lot…..10,000,000 is huge.  This has allowed some creativity and luxury amenities not possible anywhere else including a 7400 foot palatial estate with a detached guest home(both enjoying tremendous ocean views), a yard and a pool.  The home offers luxury features throughout.

The Difference Between Normal Streets and Walk Streets

By Keith Kyle

The homes located on the “walk streets” of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach are highly coveted and far more valuable to similar homes just blocks away that are not on these pedestrian walkways. So what is the difference?

It’s perhaps easiest to see the difference

What the walkstreet homes allow is somewhat of a front yard that opens up to the very social feel of the neighborhood. Not only is it safer due to the lack of cars, but it becomes and extension of both the home and the front yard and lends itself to a great community feel. In addition the lack of cars means lack of garages so all of the homes fact the more asthetically pleasing parts of the home and not the garages, alleys, etc.

Ultimate Luxury Living on Manhattan Beach’s Walk Streets

By Keith KyleManhattan Beach walk streets

For the ultimate in beach living that doesn’t involve living ocean front, the “walk streets” of Manhattan Beach offer it all.  These pedestrian only “streets” are only found in the sand section and almost always mean that the homes are within a few blocks of the beach.

What makes these streets so unique and so valuable?

Most sand section homes on full lots face the street in the front, homes on both sides and an alley in the back.  Fronting the street means the obvious challenges of car noise, parking challenges and a much higher level of traffic, especially in the summer.  Walkstreets front a sidewalk instead of a street making for a much quieter, safer, and community friendly situation.

Most homes on these streets are full 30×90 foot lots with some being half lots or partial lots.  There is great demand by builders for Luxury walkstreet homes in Manhattan Beacholder “fixers” or tear downs due to the premium location.  Homes generally start in the $3,000,000 for a lot value sale and most larger homes start in the mid $5,000,000s.  Views are often unprotected in this area and is an important consideration having great influence on values.  Future views are not guaranteed and should always be considered.  Due to the steepness of some of the streets there is almost always some type of ocean views looking down the walkstreet.  As there are still an abundance of smaller original homes, its’ not uncommon to have stunning west facing views from the entire top floor.

These fabulous homes are also a favorite of the rich and famous with numerous professional athletes and celebrities living in the neighborhood.

Unfortunately searching and finding homes only on walkstreets isn’t easy as there is no specific category on the local MLS to designate them.  If you would like to receive walkstreet listings please contact us or fill out our daily Manhattan Beach listing request and keep you notified anytime a new home comes on the market.

Why the “Sand” Section of Manhattan Beach is So Great

By Keith Kyle

The answer to the question, “what’s so great about the Manhattan Beach sand section anyway?” can be summed up with 3 words……Location,Manhattan Ave location, location. The “sand” section of Manhattan Beach gets it’s name from the proximity to the beach. The area stretches from Hermosa Beach to the edge of Manhattan known as El Porto. In this wonderful area you’re never far from the beach, often walking distance to shops, restaurants and bars, enjoy almost perfect weather, are treated to spectacular sunsets, and often have great ocean views. The biggest drawbacks to this area are the price and the limited space as land is at a premium and just about every inch of lot is taken up by homes. Gone are most of the beach bungalows that actually fit on the lot and most have been replaced by larger and larger homes as wide, deep and tall as they can possibly be. Some of the unique areas are the “walkstreets” in which the homes front a pedestrian only “street” which allows for less noise, no cars, and a much safer atmosphere and the lack of cars make views that much more impressive. El Porto, the most northern area of the sand section, is the most affordable as many of the typical 30×90 foot lots were split and the smaller lots equal smaller homes equal smaller price tags. Without question the most sought after property in the sand section are the very rare and always impressive homes located beach front on “The Strand” These homes offer the high end luxury buyer endless and unblockable ocean views.
