Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach are built on sand. In the early days, old timers speak of walkways disappearing, small structures sliding and the sting of the sand. The dunes were a major problem. Some were 50 feet to 70 feet high. In the late 1920s, developers from Hawaii made a deal to supply Waikiki Beach with Manhattan Beach sand. The sand was loaded onto Santa Fe Railroad cars and transported to the harbor in San Pedro and then onto ships or barges. This continued for almost ten years. A steady wind whipping across the barren dunes made life miserable for the first hardy pioneers. One of them, Mrs. Dorcas Ingram, set down her views for posterity. “But my inmost being shrank from the greeting chill and dank of a wind forever blowing o’er the sand dunes of Hermosa.” Many of the early settlers collected their own narrow planks and built precarious walkways between often-frequented spots. The hardier ones didn’t bother -- they plodded through the sand. The first official survey was made in the year 1901 for the boardwalk on the Strand in Hermosa Beach. A short time afterward a record 500,000 feet of Oregon pine was installed along a mile and one-half of the Strand. This was duly recorded as a notable achievement by loyal Hermosans, but drew sneers from nearby Redondo residents who called it, “a walk to the middle of nowhere.” High tides sometimes washed away portions of this walkway. In 1914 part of it was replaced with cement. The remaining two thousand feet on the north was completed in cement in 1926.

5,500 sq.ft. plus home, with 6 BR & 5 1/2 BA available in prestigous Montemalaga. This home was a PV Art Center Design House. Dramatic atrium entry and spiral staircase. Every bedroom has a walk-in closet & attached bath, and there are custom drapes, coffered ceilings, travertine floors, carpets & wood throughout. The rooms include an ocean view master suite & office, living room, formal dining room, family & breakfast rooms, study & gourmet kitchen with granite counters. There are views from both floors. Pool, jacuzzi, newly landscaped backyard, outdoor BBQ & sink.

The Seagate condos have a beautiful community pool, lush landscaping, exercise room & resort style living.

During the early 1900’s in Manhattan Beach, planks were also placed on the sand to create Manhattan Avenue, and boardwalks were built along the Strand and on side streets. In 1903, the Pacific Railway Company which merged with the Pacific Electric in 1910, installed a track along the oceanfront extending from Los Angeles to Santa Monica and then south to Redondo Beach passing through Manhattan. The tracks were just west of The Strand where the bicycle path is today. The Red Cars would run on this line until 1940.

Residence for Harold and Martha Henbest, 1966. The architect responsible for arguably two of the most iconic designs of the Case Study House Program works here on a flat, ocean-view lot in Rancho Palos Verdes. As with most of Koenig’s designs, the first visual is one of understatement at the street. But past the walled and gated entry, one steps into a highly dramatic and purposefully practical

living.

A

the

which,

flanked

by opposing glass walls, are open and filled with natural light. And, as if anticipating today’s lifestyle back in 1966, the original design includes a formal living room, separate dining area and kitchen with adjoining family room; each placed with a strong orientation to the outdoor spaces. Mature Japanese-influenced gardens occupy the front grounds, and the architecture,

presented in virtually unaltered condition, appears to borrow from that spirit of true calm, high restraint and absolute preciseness.

Panoramic Ocean/Catalina Island View | 5 Bedroom + Library, 5 1/2 Baths Spectacular modern estate with stunning view high above the Pacific Ocean. Architect Marshall Lewis wraps large open spaces in redwood and glass to create a home with privacy, serenity, elegance and livability. The elevated glass walled rotunda commands a sweeping view of Ocean, Catalina Island, and coastline from sunrise in the East, to sunset in the West. The home borders a huge ‘Nature Preserve’ overlooking the coastline. The secluded tree lined entry drive opens into an expansive motor court with center pond. The strong modern architecture provides a dramatic counterpart to the feeling of nature provided by the private tree filled lot and stunning views. The interior appointments are exquisite and include a European style Kitchen. The outdoor entertainment area includes pool, spa, and terrace kitchen. The huge 1375 sq ft garage has two story volume with skylights, a indoor half court basketball facility, and exercise alcove. An elevator provides easy access to the garage and living areas.

FOCUS ON EAST MANHATTAN BEACH Manhattan Beach, CA - (East Manhattan Beach) Some say there is no life East of Sepulveda, however, those “in the know”, know there is more life East of Sepulveda in comparison to the rest of Manhattan Beach. There is more outdoor space, more square footage, wider streets with more parking, more distance from your neighbors, more privacy, bigger back yards, more sidewalks, and larger parks: simply more for your money, if that is what you value. “East Manhattan” as described in real estate terms is bordered by Sepulveda Blvd to the West, Aviation Blvd. to the East, Artesia Blvd. to the South and Marine Ave. to the North. The area North of Manhattan Beach Blvd is often referred to as Liberty Village, and is home to Manhattan Beach’s greatest park, “Polliwog Park”. It has its own pond filled with ducks and turtles, multiple play areas, an outdoor workout area, a nine-hole disc golf course, the public Botanical Garden, and free summer concerts in the park. It doesn’t get much better for families considering you can easily be walking distance to not only two great Elementary schools, Meadows and

NEW EAST MANHATTAN BEACH LISTING

Pennekamp, but Manhattan Beach’s only High School, Mira Costa as well. In addition, the state of the art middle school, Manhattan Beach Intermediate, is adjacent to Polliwog Park. There are also multiple pre-schools, plus the ever-popular Montessori School located near Pennekamp Elementary. In a city which has undergone a recent state of redevelopment, East Manhattan has seen its share of it. Ongoing and rapid change is apparent, as the original World War II era housing for employees of (the then dominant) local defense contractors such as Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Hughes has been greatly replaced by new, larger homes. Many of the homes built in the 40’s and 50’s were very modest; averaging about 1200 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 1 or 2 baths. Walk-in closets were not yet invented nor were private baths for each member of the family, as is the norm today. Current demand has been for significantly larger homes with modern amenities, such as gourmet kitchens, large family rooms, large bedrooms and oodles of bathrooms. Developers and home owners have been rebuilding many of these old homes at a rapid pace

since the late 80’s, though new construction has recently come to a near halt with the market downturn--pleasing some, while sending developers and contractors scrambling for work wherever they can find it. A full East Manhattan lot is considered a 50 x 150 foot lot, or 7500 square feet. The deep lots allow for a pool- sized back yard, with 5 foot side set backs. The setbacks result in situating you 10 feet away from your neighbors: a great distance as compared to the 72 inch separation of neighbors in the Sand Section of Manhattan Beach. Liberty Village and some other pockets of East Manhattan offer more standard lot sizes, averaging about 5000 sqft or about 50x 100 feet. Whether you need more square footage, more privacy, or simply want to walk the kids or dog down the sidewalk and avoid dodging traffic, take a peek on the East side and experience a little more for your Manhattan Beach dollars.

On a cement path that hugs the sand, a toned jogger breezes past a solitary surfer who stares broodingly out to sea. Meanwhile, a celebrity athlete ambles by unnoticed, his small children in tow. The backdrop: a long string of modern beachside mansions standing cheek-to-jowl with 1920s bungalows.

MOVIE NIGHT WILL NEVER BE THE SAME Grab the popcorn and head downstairs for a private screening of the latest blockbuster or the big game. There you’ll find an enormous family room that doubles as a home theater, complete with beach-themed hand-painted window shades that automatically lower for optimal viewing. Belly up to the bamboo-themed full bar for a cocktail. Or crack open a vintage stored in your 500-bottle capacity wine locker. You may never buy another movie ticket again.

HERMOSA BEACH

YOU’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT ONE-OF-A-KIND COLLECTABLE…NOW YOU’VE FOUND IT.

There’s no other property like it on The Strand, and there never will be. Offered at $18,899,000

CELEBRATE UNDER THE STARS Take the party higher and bigger on your rooftop deck, the largest on The Strand. Perfect for a quiet afternoon of sun-basking and spa-soaking, your roof deck can also accommodate up to 110 guest mingling among the mature-growth plantings and under the stars. Equipped with ample storage, refrigerator, sink, grill, plenty of chairs, chaise lounges and tables, as well as built-in teak benches and platforms, your roof deck is the ultimate setting for the ultimate gathering.

ELEVATE YOUR PERSPECTIVE

There’s more to life at 2909 The Strand…much, much more. With three above-ground floors (versus typical two) each boasting almost 50 feet of expansive frontage, (instead of the typical 24) – plus a full size roof deck – you’ll enjoy 300% more frontage than the average Strand home in Hermosa Beach.

THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DETAILS

LIVE LARGER

Can a home be a work of art? It can if it’s 2909 The Strand. You’ll notice the incredible attention to detail and artisanship the instant you step through the gated courtyard and into a beautifully landscaped setting. From the honed marble floors and 6-foot hand-crafted chandelier in the entrance, to the Venetian plaster and imported Japanese rice paper on the walls, to the staircase rails resembling artistically woven twigs, to the original artwork displayed throughout, you immediately know you’ve arrived someplace very special. And very rare.

Here at 2909 The Strand, the expansive views are rivaled only by the expansive living space that make the most of its extraordinarily large 6,611 square-foot-lot. Make yourself, your family and your guests at home with 7 luxurious bedrooms, 7 fully appointed baths, and 3 half baths including a separate housekeeper’s quarters. Guest will enjoy having their own private guest wing – each bedroom with a walk-in closet, and each bathroom with a Whirlpool tub.

Three story Internationally recognized steel and glass residence directly across from the Strand.3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, den/library & wine cellar.

This iconic architectural statement of the beach lifestyle is built for fun to be enjoyed for ages.
