316 27th Street Manhattan Beach, Ca
From its hillside vantage point overlooking the Pacific, 27th Street’s graceful modern architecture is deftly poised to offer all that is spectacular about this location. A layered roofline contours the slope of the terrain, as if to remind you that the design of this house is all about leaning into the views.
A double half corner lot location provides for extra wide ocean facing frontage, a rarity in Manhattan Beach’s sand section. With over 4180 square feet of living space, including 4 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, this home appeals to those wishing to live authentically at the beach – comfortably, artfully, and availing themselves of the coastal atmosphere in a home versatile enough to adapt to their changing needs through the years. Features of our signature Thoughtful Design are found throughout. Clerestory windows and obscured glass bring the light in while safeguarding privacy. The effect is modern and provocative. Crisp white beveled shiplap extends across thresholds to create an expansive feeling, offset by handsome wide plank European white oak flooring. Materials are luxurious and organic, yet durable.
From the sunlit foyer flanked by a two-story glass vitrine, one can either follow an architectural floating staircase up to the prime living and entertaining areas, or head to the bedrooms. In the spacious master, a seductively modulated gray concrete tile wall provides counterpoint to a generous bank of west-facing windows. The secondary bedrooms are tucked away on the other side, oriented around a den & media room outfitted with 5.1 surround sound. Each has its own dedicated bath and private entrance off the rear patio, making them equally suitable for guests, live-in relatives or domestic help.
Upstairs, a jaw-dropping split-level open floor plan radiates around a state-of-the-art cook’s kitchen. At rear, a comfortable family room and home office area with rear barbecue deck provide the ideal location for quieter family time or the perfect setting to watch the big game. To the north, separate breakfast nook and formal dining room inhabit brightly lit yet delineated spaces. At front, high ceilings define the formal living area punctuated by a rhythmic bank of large scale wrap-around windows opening onto spectacular ocean views that benefit the entire second floor space. Upper clerestory windows from the east side ensure morning light as well. From here, doors lead out to an amply sized corner patio – perfect for dining or lounging.
Continuing to the third floor, a versatile indoor/outdoor living space with attached bathroom doubles as guest room, private office or lounge area, spilling onto a private roof deck.
Adding to the home’s functionality is a 4-stop elevator, and on the lower level, a 5-car garage with electric car hookup, dog run, wet room with beach shower, and a showpiece wine grotto with storage for up to 700 bottles and a tasting area.
From young professionals to large families to empty nesters. From social entertainers to private suburbanites seeking the elusive privacy in beach living. The scale and versatility of 27th Street speaks to you.
