elcome to Prime Luxury Property – South Bay Edition
Welcome to the first issue of Prime Luxury Property magazine, as we present top-shelf properties in stunning locations including Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Rolling Hills and the best-kept secrets of Long Beach waterfront living. Speaking of "secret," word is spreading fast that the area offers the trifecta of California oceanfront living – Sand, Sea, and Sun – to be enjoyed year-round and at a great value. As we speak, the South Bay area is attracting buyers from all over Orange County and the greater Los Angeles area by virtue of being located right in the middle between these two industry hotbeds. A growing number of international investors are also in search of the unique combination of lifestyle, architecture, and natural beauty that can only be found in coastal Southern California. For examples of what's on trend right now, look no further than the sleek designer abode created by architect Diko Kassabian at 232 6th Street in Manhattan Beach. Courtesy of listing agent Ray Joseph at Palm Realty B0outique in Manhattan Beach, the lavishly appointed modern home offers luxury living with a laidback California twist, perfectly illustrated in our Prime Property Masterpiece feature on page 26. For another stunning showcase, also explore this issue's cover home on page 32, listed by John Bathurst of Vista Sotheby’s International Realty.

PRIME PROPERTY MASTERPIECE
xperience the state of the art in contemporary California beach living. Completed in early 2016, the brand-new modern abode at 232 6th Street in Manhattan Beach celebrates panoramic ocean views, seamless access to the outdoors, and a carefully chosen palette of materials in close vicinity to the beach on a quiet walk street. On three stories, the sleek 4,319 square-foot modern home designed by Kassabian Design | Build combines 5 bedrooms and 7 baths on an open floor plan. Comfort, luxury appliances and amenities, and front-row views of yearround blue skies and California beaches were the focal points in the design process behind this stand-out property in one of Manhattan Beach's most sought-after neighborhoods. "The design is all about the views, as the home sits right on the highest point of the ridge leading down to the sands by the beach, offering stunning ocean views from all the top floors and decks," said designer Diko Kassabian, whose track record includes celebrity homes such as the Tuscan-style villa in Calabasas that is now the home of Michael Jackson's children. And while 232 6th Street offers a sheltered retreat in a quiet stretch of town, the finest dining and shopping is only a short walk away, much like running, cycling, surfing, and other outdoor activities by the beach.
who pointed out upscale sushi restaurant Nobu in Malibu as the inspiration behind the material mix. On all floors, carefully appointed designer features courtesy of interior designer Paul L'Esperance of L'Esperance Design abound, next to the latest in spa-style comforts. The Master bath boasts a walk-in shower and free-standing soak tub, plus a unique vanity
“232 6th Street is all about the beach, the openness of airy indoors blending with outdoor living, and celebrating the spectacular views. The unique corner location provided the opportunity to create an exterior with a soft modern design that has not been seen before in Manhattan Beach.” — Diko Kassabian, Kassabian Design | Build
BEACH LIVING AT ITS BEST
At the street-level entrance, 232 6th Street welcomes visitors with a comforting "new home" smell and a taste of laid-back California living in a modern, sleek setting – instantly visible in the exposed brick fireplace by the door. "The home creates a soft, contemporary modern atmosphere through the use of warm materials such as mahogany wood on the outside, as well as French oak interior floors, and limestone on the decks. It all works together to emanate a very comfortable modern touch," said the designer,
area connected to the custom walk-in closet. Airy, light-filled interiors flow together effortlessly as the home encourages grand-scale entertaining with a stacked Chef's kitchen replete with marble countertops and floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood glass walls connecting to the outside deck. "The indoors and outdoors seamlessly connect, as the glass walls slide open to generous-sized decks for entertaining," said Kassabian, who studied architecture at USC. Perched on the corner of a quiet walk street, 232 6th Street also offers more outdoor space than the average home in the neighborhood, with 901 square feet of deck and covered outdoor space bringing the total living space to 5,220 square feet. "This is the best neighborhood in Manhattan Beach because you are South of the pier, close enough to all the fine restaurants and shopping, but yet not on top of commercial and dining spaces. Plus, being situated in the best school district with the Gold Ribbon Robinson School makes this the best area to live in," said Diko Kassabian. The response has been overwhelmingly positive since open houses began in late March 2016, as the sleek ocean front oasis raises the bar for the latest in beach lifestyle – not just in Manhattan Beach, but across all of coastal California.
Street-level appeal: The property strikes a modern appearance with exclusive Mahogany wood paneling on the corner of a quiet walk street.

THE SOUTH BAY’S LUXURY REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS WEIGH IN ON CURRENT MARKET TRENDS
uch like upscale designer fashions, the luxury property market is subject to constantly changing trends and consumer demands. Nobody keeps a finger on the pulse of what's in demand this season more than the seasoned South Bay luxury real estate experts. In this issue’s Trending, Prime gets fresh insights from Stephen Haw (RE/MAX Estate Properties Palos Verdes), Jennifer and Dave Caskey (Caksey & Caskey / Shorewood Realtors) and Gordon Inman and Keith Kelley (The Inman Team / Keller Williams) on our question:
WHAT ARE BUYERS LOOKING FOR IN A LUXURY HOME?
JENNIFER AND DAVE CASKEY
"Buyers usually look for different elements in a luxury home depending on the area. For the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula market which I focus on, “view” is usually one of the most important factors. People in Palos Verdes are lucky to have a wide range of different fantastic views to choose from: Coastline, ocean, city, Catalina, White Water, Queen’s Necklace etc. and the best homes usually have unobstructed, panoramic views. Fine construction is also important. Luxury buyers have an eye for top materials and workmanship inside a home. The quality must match the high price points. Besides, a good floor plan and beautiful curb appeal will make a luxury home more attractive. Of course, everyone wants to have a great neighborhood and great schools. The Palos Verdes Peninsula is fortunate to have both. Our schools, from elementary to high schools, are constantly among the top-ranked in the nation."
"Five years ago, the must-have items on a luxury buyer’s list mainly centered around high-end finishes, top of the line appliances, popular architectural design, reputation of builder, and larger footprints with bonus rooms and outdoor space. The dynamic has shifted greatly in the South Bay beach cities and Palos Verdes areas, as many buyers are trading locally for location at a premium and land. We have seen recent sales in the high end with multiple buyers seeking either closer proximity to the beach and Strand with an ocean view or for double and triple lots in the Hill Section, Tree Section and parts of East Manhattan Beach. There has been a very popular surge of families paring off from beach life in Manhattan and Hermosa and heading for the Palos Verdes area seeking homes with sprawling floor plans, park-like backyards and pools. High-end homes with integrated Smart home technologies and solar powered systems also catch and hold the attention of the luxury home buyer."
With over 30 years of experience, Stephen Haw is an award-winning real estate broker with over $1 billion worth of completed real estate transactions for sellers and buyers. Cultivating an international focus, The Stephen Haw Group at RE/MAX Estate Properties Palos Verdes has transacted over $100 million in sales in 2015 alone. Fluent in English as well as Chinese and Taiwanese dialects, Stephen's accolades include the RE/ MAX Hall of Fame, Lifetime Achievement Award, and the RE/MAX International Circle of Legends Award.

GORDON INMAN & KEITH KELLEY
With over 47 years of combined experience working in residential and commercial real estate, Gordon Inman and Keith Kelley at the Inman Team are among the foremost experts within the cities of Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, San Pedro and surrounding cities in the South Bay. In 2014 and 2015, the Inman Team conducted over $115 million in sales and accounted for 30% of the homes sold in Rolling Hills.
"Buyers are obviously looking for great views and square footage and the best possible views. City light views and ocean views are in high demand, and the combination of both is really trending right now, while ocean views attract the most value. In our marketplace, privacy and security are the most current trends in the ultra-luxury segment. Rolling Hills, which we specialize on, is the only gated city in the entire country with guard-gated access 365 days a year, around the clock. People come here because of the large properties, mostly over 1 acre, and the unparalleled privacy. And everyone currently wants outdoor electronic systems for lighting, entertainment, and controlling their pools and outdoor fire pits. Garages for multiple vehicles are another major trend, all the way to refurbished barns turned into full-fledged garages."

PRIME AGENT SPOTLIGHT
he City of Long Beach rarely conjures up images of luxury yachts and marinas, lavishly appointed waterfront estates, and aquatic lifestyles. But the area's buzzing luxury property market offers all of the above, and then some. "Long Beach tends to get stigmatized a bit, but it's a unique little spot with a wonderful lifestyle offering. Especially the waterfront properties are among the most beautiful on the coast," said local real estate specialist Spencer Snyder, who knows the area like few others. Raised on exclusive Naples Island since the age of 5, Snyder is familiar with the ins and outs of the market and holds his team to high standards. "Our working knowledge of the area enables us to offer our clients a unique advantage. I'm really selective about choosing my agents, and every single one is a great fit and brings a real local element to the table. So I'm confident in offering the best possible experience as we service all of Long Beach on the buy side and sales side." As the head of the Spencer Snyder Group at Nationwide Real Estate Executives, Spencer supports buyers and sellers with a team of eight agents and offices on Naples Island. Between 2014 and 2015 alone, the customer-focused agent and winner of the Platinum Executive Award from Nationwide completed over $55 million in real estate transactions, including the highest recorded sale in the area; a stunning Naples Island villa at 55 Vista del Golfo for over $8.5 million. The sale was especially important for Spencer Snyder, as his community-oriented charity organization, Listing4Love, donated $20,000 from the proceeds to the Autism Partnership Foundation. "At the close of each sale, we donate 4% of the net seller-side commissions to a charity of the seller or buyer's choosing. It's really been gaining traction and I'm hoping it will catch on with other real estate groups as a way to be philanthropic," said Snyder. What attracted you to real estate and, in particular, luxury real estate? I've always had a passion for sales in general and becoming involved in real estate was a natural progression for me. I'm actually a secondgeneration realtor, my mother worked as a real estate agent and growing up I watched my father buying and selling homes here in the area. I've always had an eye on the market in Naples and Belmont Shore, and the luxury element just comes with the territory with all the beautiful waterfront properties here. Having grown up on Naples Island with a strong attachment to the community, what distinguishes the area in terms of luxury real estate? Naples Island and the surrounding area are widely undervalued when it comes to luxury waterfront properties. The canals and the beaches here offer immediate access to a diverse aquatic lifestyle, with sailing, yachting, kayaking, and paddle boarding right on our doorstep. It's a combination that a lot of buyers are starting to notice. Speaking of clients, how would you describe your personal approach and the unique services you offer? 46 | primeluxury.com
I work with a group of hand-picked and expertly trained agents with offices right in the heart of Naples. For us, the core of our business is our relationship with clients and helping them become part of the community we know so well. We provide a full-fledged, white glove service offering and invest a lot in our listings. We spare no expense when it comes to marketing with individual property websites, aerial photography, social media and search engine integration both nationally and internationally – the works. What are the biggest emerging trends in luxury real estate at the moment? Price points in the luxury property market are trending upward and overall it keeps getting stronger, especially now that the economy is stable. Interest rates continue to be low, which helps people afford luxury homes. Our area is doing well and draws a lot of buyers from Orange County, Santa Monica, and South Bay, also because prices are still relatively attainable here. On that note, which price points are seeing the most action right now in your area and which architectural styles are trending? Mostly between $1 to 2 million. Modern style is trending – not ultra-modern, but contemporary with clean lines, open floor plans, bigger windows and a simple aesthetic.

And finally, what is the #1 reason for moving to the Long Beach waterfront area? It's a really nice mix, you can live on the water and be part of the yacht club and also head over to the beach or the nearest shopping or restaurants within five minutes. There’s a lot of variety and plenty of neighborhood nooks to be discovered. Belmont Shore is a unique little stretch, for instance. You're getting luxury waterfront properties with accessibility to aquatic activities and great weather year-round at a very affordable rate. And we're smack in the middle between LA and Orange County, so we see a lot of couples where spouses work in both places looking for a place here.
