2410 Laurel Ave, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266

This modernist 4 bedroom 3 bath home features a sunny interior with clean lines reminiscent of California’s Golden Age, when architects like Ray Kappe were designing timeless post-and-beam homes with high ceilings and walls of glass to blend home and nature.  Sitting high above the Greenbelt with views of greenery from virtually every window, bright morning sun welcomes you to the new day, and soothing sunsets culminate the day’s end.  Only a handful of homes in Manhattan Beach enjoy the privacy and seclusion of being located on a private drive.  Here, kids can ride bikes and play ball safely out front in a setting similar to a mini walk street or take it to the good sized back yard landscaped with fruit trees and herbs, flowing seamlessly from the main living spaces in a family-friendly fashion.  An efficient kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a pull-out pantry, a versatile breakfast/homework counter with bay window and an adjacent pergola-covered dining pavilion.  Three bedrooms reside upstairs, including the master with beautiful treetop views, two kid’s bedrooms and a hall bath.  One bedroom is downstairs and doubles as a perfect guest suite, family room or home office.  Located at the heart of the Tree Section, just 3 blocks to American Martyrs and a short walk to Pacific Elementary, Live Oak Park, the beach and downtown boutiques and restaurants, you’ll have easy access to everything that represents the iconic lifestyle of Manhattan Beach.
