The biggest sale of the month in Manhattan Beach was a walk street single family home located in the sand section at 412 8th Street. The home was listed for $6,349,000 and closed at $6,100,000. Built in 2012 it was a beautiful 5 bedroom home with 6 baths and just over 4,200 square feet. View all of the homes that sold in Manhattan Beach during December 2020.
The newest offering in a fairly crowded beachfront market is 1516 The Strand, Manhattan Beach priced at $18,900,000. The home was built in 2005* and offers 4 bedrooms and 4 baths and almost 5,000 square feet on three levels. It’s very close to the pier which has both upside and downside but the views it offers of the pier, beach and ocean are dazzling.

The Sand Section of Manhattan Beach is often the area most people see when they visit. Big ocean views….walk to the beach….near constant beach breezes….it’s the epitome of luxury coastal living. Demand for homes in the sand section remained high in 2018 with 133 home sales during the year.
Median list prices for homes during the year were $2,980,000 with the median sales price at $2,925,000. Average list price was just over $3,746,000 with the average sales price at $3,596,000. As is always the case with the sand section the numbers were skewed a bit due to some oceanfront Strand homes priced well into 8 digits with the highest sale at a stunning $17,400,000 while 108 The Strand closed out the year at $15,250,000.

One of the homes currently on the market (as of July 8th, 2016) that we really like is located at 516 4th Street in the Manhattan Beach sand section. While not on a walkstreet the home sits on a quiet street and has the look and feel of a walkstreet location. The home offers a coastal plantation style with a large front yard and patio offering a great mix of indoor/outdoor living.
