It’s been a while since the last beachfront home in Manhattan Beach closed escrow, but that just recently changed with the sale of 2304 The Strand. This was basically a lot value sale and had been on an off the market for some time with a number of price reductions. Originally listed in January of 2019 for $9,950,000 the price was reduced $8,999,000 in July, then $8,250,000 in October, to settling at $7,950,000 in November. It’s not unusual for most Strand homes to sell for way below original list price (in large part to not being priced in line with value originally) but this was an almost 25% drop from list price. The two most recent sales on the beach have both been tear down/lot value sales. The prior sale was at $8,525,000 for 3212 The Strand.
There’s a new addition to the ultra high end Strand market in Manhattan Beach with the listing of 1804 The Strand. This is the most recent listing on the beachfront Strand in Manhattan Beach Californial.Priced at $18,500,000 that’s a pretty significant number for this property but the location is just about ideal being a few blocks from the congestion of downtown while still being walkable.

Priced at $18,500,000 it’s going to take a special buyer.

Current Beach Front Homes for Sale on The Strand
Over the past few years, the Manhattan Beach real estate market has been driven by low inventory and high demand. Homes generally sell fairly quickly but the ultra luxury market of oceanfront homes, known in Manhattan Beach as the Strand is a vastly different situation. Currently there are 7 oceanfront homes or properties for sale on the Manhattan Beach Strand. As of 9/29/18 there are 7 homes for sale on the beach which is pretty incredible given the limited number of homes in general. The median days on market for these homes is 79 with the average days on market a whopping 241.
Current Beach Front Homes for Sale on The Strand
The biggest sale of the month was located on the oceanfront Strand at 3420 The Strand. This was a pretty spectacular home perched fairly high on the dune offering stunning views. The home featured 5 bedrooms, 6 baths and an enormous 5,500 square feet on 3 levels. Built in 2003 and designed by renowned Architects Grant Kirkpatrick and Erik Evens of KAA Design Group, 3420 The Strand enjoys a corner walkstreet lot with great beach and walkstreet frontages.
Originally listed at $17,995,000 and reduced in July to $16,500,000 the home sold for $15,400,000. For information on the current oceanfront Strand homes for sale contact Manhattan Beach realtor Keith Kyle with Vista Sotheby’s International.
While $25,000,000 is a list price that we occasionally see in Manhattan Beach, it really takes something special to come on the market in
this rarified air anywhere else. Something special it is, however. While the price is staggering for the Hollywood Riviera, there’s no disputing that the home (s) being sold at 417 Paseo De La Playa are pretty incredible. The lots along Paseo De La Playa are already huge as they extend all the way to the beach but in this case there’s not one, but two separate parcels for sale. What also makes this compound type property unique is the beach access. It can take years to go through the California coastal process of trying to get beach access and it’s often denied. In this case there’s not only beach access but a private volleyball court! Here’s information from listing agent Chris Adlam of Vista Sotheby’s International.
With over 62,000 square feet of beach-front property on TWO SEPARATE PARCELS, this dramatic compound is almost impossible to duplicate. The main house (417 Paseo de la Playa) is over 10,000 square feet of exquisite living area, and the “companion house” (421 Paseo de la Playa) has over 5,500 square feet. Both homes are located behind gated entrances, both with direct access to the sand, a spectacular pool & spa, a private sand volleyball court, and a large yard. The views span from Palos Verdes through the beach cities, including the entire Santa Monica Bay.
