Fantastic opportunity to own in the Hill Section of Manhattan Beach. Just steps from the Veterans Parkway/Greenbelt and blocks from the beach and town, this 1957 ranch style home is perfect for living in now and building later. The engaging original cottage presents a stone walkway to the front door and a clean, updated interior space, providing bungalow living with many of the home’s original features still intact. Bright and light wainscoting, skylights, and oversized vaulted ceilings create an illusion of greater space in the main living areas of the home, leaving the cozy, intimate spaces to the three bedrooms. The Master bedroom offers a built-in window seat and an in-room closet, while the additional two bedrooms are rich in detail and personality, with built-in shelving, a chalkboard wall and bright windows. Off of the grand living room the open-concept floor plan leads to a separate dining area. Adjacent is the original kitchen, which provides lots of natural light and plenty of counter space to cook and entertain. The private backyard features an elevated wood deck for intimate gatherings and a larger area below, perfect for lounging or dining al fresco. Award-winning Robinson Elementary just a few short blocks away, and quaint downtown Manhattan Beach an easy walk or bike ride from home. Potential for ocean views from Palos Verdes to Malibu and an incredible location make this a unique opportunity to own in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in this beach town.
