Over in a prime pocket of Manhattan Beach, an oceanfront residence crafted by the talented and prolific team of KAA Design Group and Matt Morris Development just popped up for sale, asking a smidge over $28 million. Every bit as eye-catching as the duo’s other projects resting along the sought-after Strand, the place comes complete with a boardwalk-level “beach room” and an al fresco living/dining room, and naturally, far-reaching ocean vistas from every possible vantage point.
Sited amid a dainty parcel at the Strand and 34th Street, and looking fairly unassuming from the front, the towering four-story structure was built in 2013, and boasts five bedrooms and eight baths spread across nearly 7,500 square feet of Durkin Design living space accessed via a striking entryway sporting a curving mahogany staircase flanked by a floor-to-ceiling picture window overlooking a water feature.
Commanding attention on the top level is a living room displaying a fireplace and doors opening to the aforementioned outdoor living/dining room, which is highlighted by a built-in grilling station and surrounded by bi-folding louvered panels. An adjacent kitchen is outfitted with an eat-in peninsula, Miele appliances and a breakfast nook, and a formal dining room topped by a spiraling light fixture is tucked around the corner.
On the third level, a master bedroom wing has a separate office space, two walk-in closets and an ocean-view deck, as well as a spa-like bath adorned with dual vanities, a dressing area, and limestone-clad wet zone with a soaking tub and an open shower. Four additional bedrooms can be found filtered throughout the home’s multiple levels.
Most of the amenities have been placed on the bottom two levels, including a beach-level entertainment lounge that hosts a seated walk-in bar and sliding glass doors spilling out to the Strand, along with a movie theater, temperature-controlled wine cellar, mirrored gym and sauna; and rounding it all out is an attached two-car garage.
The property is jointly listed by Bryce Lowe and Kirby Gillon of AKG | Christie’s International Real Estate, and Matt Morris and Christa Lyons of Matt Morris Real Estate Group.
