That dreamy, quintessential retreat by the shoreline is a reality discovered at 1908 The Strand in Manhattan Beach. Taken to the studs and remodeled while maintaining its original beach cottage charm, this 2 bedroom home has a large beach level room with a 3/4 bath that could convert to a 3rd bedroom, if desired. If front-and-center beachfront living with sweeping views of The Strand and the Pacific Ocean arent enough, this property offers very rare, highly coveted, proper parking spaces for 6 vehicles on site! Secure, coded entry gates open immediately to an ocean view just past the large, private sun-drenched courtyard that the home envelopes. A floor-to-ceiling glass and steel pivot entryway door welcomes you to open concept living and entertaining areas perched high above The Strand that enjoy sweeping views of the pier to the South and endless ocean views. Vaulted, open beam ceilings lend to the original charm while adding height, light and depth to the cottages footprint. Bleached wood floors, a white brick fireplace, and farmhouse style design accents throughout capture and preserve that treasured vintage Southern California beach vibe. Upgraded amenities and state-of-the-art appliances and in-home technology bring this classic cottage future-forward. Life along the world-famous Strand is what California dreamin is made of; exercise for miles along the Marvin Braude bike trail that stretches for 21 scenic miles from Palos Verdes to the Pacific Palisades, catch waves all day right in front of your idyllic beach bungalow, spike, set and dig beach volleyball to your hearts content, or just watch the dolphins play in the morning sun from your front row seat. Park the cars and bike or stroll to nearby dining and shopping options - beach life is the best life!
