2504 Pine, Manhattan Beach, CA
Represented seller. The European style estates glow brightly in the Manhattan Tree Section. If you ever get to own one of these, especially this one, it would surprise no one if you started speaking other languages or started playing classical guitar. Built recently by Devico, its attraction from the street is enough to make one pull into the driveway, because it's just so authentically Tuscan. The palm tree, as well as an olive tree, is impeccable as if a designer ordered them there. The home itself has so much to offer. Its architecture is alluring with its detail of vaulted ceiling, perfectly placed columns and archways. Also, it captures all the expectations one would have of a 5 bedroom estate home and then some. It has a large open kitchen great room with nook open to the backyard and a basement/playroom with windows offering up plenty of natural light. Wide plank distressed walnut hardwood floors, gourmet appliance, a grand staircase with custom railings and a grassy backyard beside the flagstone patio. As they say in Italy, "il dolce far niente", Turnkey.
The first downtown building was built by Merrill around 1901.
