17th Street walk street is one of the most exclusive streets in Manhattan Beach due to its unparalleled panoramic ocean views and proximity to the charming beach town. Among its highest points is a Modernist home completely redone in 2011, designed by Abramson Architects—a winner of the prestigious American Architecture Awards® in 2020—and Dan Burns who was in charge of the interior. Approx 3600 sq feet, this 3-bedroom, 4-bathroom home features sharp, clean lines in luxurious, organic materials—sophisticated mahogany, tumbled limestone and smooth stucco on the exterior. The front door, in steel and walnut, opens into the foyer—a cathedral-like space. There are ocean views throughout the home’s levels culminating in a secluded rooftop deck where you can relax and entertain over a panorama of the Pacific Ocean coastline. The charm of walk-street living is the open-air mingling of interior and outdoor spaces, resulting in gatherings over ocean views and quiet moments watching waves from your private perch just two blocks from the beach. Folding glass connects the patio with a flexible, sunlit room that functions as a gathering spot, en-suite bedroom or office. On the same floor is another bedroom suite w/ walk-in closet and bathroom bathed in onyx. The heart of the residence is on the second floor, a serene open layout of living spaces. There’s a family room, formal living room, dining room and two-story kitchen—with light from a dramatic network of windows and skylights above. Walls are Venetian plaster, and the cabinetry is a mix of walnut and high-gloss white fashioned by German makers LEICHT. Appliances are Gaggenau and Miele, surrounded by pristine white walls and countertops. On the top level is the private primary retreat. The bath showcases Italian marble, soaking tub, and a dual vanity wrapped in mahogany. Steps away, the bedroom is encased in glass and walnut where an ocean view deck links by way of floor-to-ceiling glass. It’s also home to one of the residence’s most standout features: a private walkway to peer down at living spaces below, or head to the rooftop deck. The deck, approx 500 sq ft with elevated sunning deck, BBQ, ice maker and refrigerator, allows you to spend time amid scenes of sky, mountains and waves. There is a synthesis of fine design and high end materials that distinguish this residence, creating a hyper-sophisticated home base where you can live in quiet luxury, entertain in high style, or stroll to the beach or town.
