The Biggest Sale of 2018 in Manhattan Beach: 1204 The Strand
This was a 3-year old house custom built for the owner. It was designed by KAA and built by Baldwin Construction. It was listed at $17,400,000 and sold in 9 days at full price. This house is 5,372 sq ft. It’s very close to downtown and has a great view of the ocean and especially Manhattan pier. The only negative I could see was that it sat right over the parking lot at the pier, but clearly that did not affect the sale. I thought it was priced correctly for what it was, and clearly so did the buyer since he came in the first week and bought it for full price. This seller unlike so many others priced it right. Others have tried for much higher numbers when their house was not worth it, and then it ends up sitting on the market forever and never selling or selling for a lot less than if they priced it right to begin with.

Pending in 2019
2019 is going to set a new high watermark for sold prices in Hermosa Beach when this house at 2906 Tennyson closes. It’s currently in escrow and is set to close soon. This was a custom house designed by Louie Tomaro at the top of the Hermosa Beach Hill section. The views from this property are gigantic and the size of the lot and the house make this property very special.
