Another day…..another new beachfront listing on the Manhattan Beach Strand.
It sees that hardly a day goes by this month without a spectacular new beachfont home listing hitting the market. The newest additon to what is becoming a busy beachfront market is a beautiful and spacious home in a pretty ideal location. Located on a corner wallkstreet lot which makes for not only unblockable ocean and beach views to the west side of the home, but the south side as well. The home has been extensively remodeled with a California coastal casual feel. Offering a specious 4,400+ square feet and featuring 4 bathrooms and 9 total baths on three oceanview levels.
Located in the more southern part of the Strand the home is close to downtown without being in the midst of the summer tourist congestion.
The highest priced sale of the month in Manhattan Beach was…..no surpise here…..a beachfront home on The Strand.
4320 The Strand was a beautiful home designed by architect Michal Lee. The property closed at $10,755,000 which is a significant number given that the home is on a half lot in the El Porto area of the Manhattan Beach sand section. Due to the proximity to the refinery and the fairly busy beach parking lot out front this price is pretty impressive to say the least. Having said that they squeezed every square foot that they could and the design and layout are ideal for true beachfront living. The floorplan took full advantage of the location and allowed for maximum ocean views with multiple levels of floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors.
The design and build maximized the square footage with an impressive 3,500+ square feet. The home is stunning with the only challenges being the smaller lot size and the location in the very northern end of El Porto which tends to be fairly busy with the beach lot out front. Overall it was a stunning home.
Let’s take a look at the homes, townhomes and condos that closed escrow in Manhattan Beach during the month of March 2022. The activity level jumped a bit with 28 home sales in March compared with 24 closed sales in February. The average “list” price was an impressive $3,530,925 with the average sold price at $3,581,913 meaning that homes generally sold above the original list price. The average price per foot was $1448 and median days on market was a very brief 9 days before going into pending status. The average days on market was 26.

The top home price of the month was a beachfront single family home in the El Porto area of the “sand section” located at 4320 The Strand. The home sold for $10,755,000. The lowest priced home sale of the month was a 2 bedroom court home in Manhattan Village located at 14 Monterey Ct that closed at $1,325,000.
The homes of the Manhattan Strand consist mostly of single family homes and the occasional duplex. Beachfront condos are pretty rare but the last two properties on the Strand have both been condos. This latest property is a 3 bedroom beachfront townhome in the El Porto area of the Manhattan Beach sand section.
4314 The Strand is one of the last homes on the northern end of the Strand and all of Manhattan Beach. The home is in very nice condition and seems to be priced well for the size, location and fact that it’s a townhome. The biggest challenge is the location as it’s fairly close to the industrial areas just north and the home fronts the beach/surf parking lot so there’s a bit more activity out front than many would prefer.
It doesn’t get much better than oceanfront in the Manhattan Beach sand section. The newest beachfront listing in Manhattan Beach is a fairly rare townhome/condo located on The Strand at Marine Street. This home enjoys two levels of unblockable views. The top level features the incredible living spaces with ocean view living room, kitchen and outdoor deck…..all with spectacular views of the beach, ocean and coastline up to Malibu. The top floor also offers the primary suite that it more like a luxury hotel. The bottom level offers two additional bedrooms with private beachfront patio/deck.
