Your own personal resort awaits at this oceanfront residence, which has popped up on the market on Manhattan Beach’s sought-after Strand, as was first reported by The Real Deal. Crafted by Grant Kirkpatrick of L.A.-based KAA Design Group, the glitzy house comes complete with picturesque coastal views stretching from Palos Verdes and Catalina to Santa Monica and beyond.
The asking price is an eye-watering $36 million — or $23.7 million more than the sellers, local couple Matt and Amy Zisette, doled out for the place a little over a decade ago, back in 2011, before they completely rebuilt every inch of the premises in collaboration with Shawn Nelson Builders and KAA Design in 2016. Should the house go for anywhere near the hefty list price, it would set a record for the affluent city.
Sited on a prime parcel surrounded by high hedges, at the intersection of the Strand and 18th Street, the four-story stone and glass structure features six bedrooms and eight baths sprawled across nearly 7,000 square feet of Alana Homesley-designed living space boasting engineered oak floors, wood-beam ceilings, KGM Architectural Lighting fixtures and walls of glass throughout.
Notable amenities include an elevator, indoor “spool,” a nine-seat movie theater, two temperature-controlled wine closets with room for 360 bottles, a mirrored gym, and striking staircase built off-site and then transferred to the house. There’s also a garage with a lift that can accommodate up to five cars, plus additional space for two more vehicles.
Especially standing out on the top level is a living room displaying a floor-to-ceiling fireplace sporting a Prado travertine stone surround, built-in entertainment center, and doors flowing out to an expansive terrace with a barbecue and fire-pit. An adjacent kitchen is outfitted with walnut cabinetry, a marble-topped eat-in island, high-end Miele and Viking appliances, and a breakfast nook, and a wet bar-equipped dining room is right around the corner.
A penthouse-style master retreat on the third level has a separate office space, massive walk-in closet and an ocean-view deck, along with a luxe bath adorned with dual vanities, a soaking tub and two-person shower. Five additional bedrooms can be found filtered throughout the home’s four levels.
Most of the aforementioned amenities are located down on the basement level; and topping it all off is a beach-level entertainment lounge that hosts a seated walk-in bar, as well as the spool area with a cozy fireplace and bamboo garden.
The listing is held by Bryn Stroyke of Stroyke Properties Group at Bayside Real Estate Partners.
