2615 Crest Drive, Manhattan Beach, CA
CLOUD 9....This residence is the star property on the biggest ocean view street in Manhattan Beach. Thrilling whitewater ocean views are of a soulful operatic experience, and its surreal sunsets are flawless. Even the marine layer sounds and feels like Amazing Grace when it rolls in. Cut like a world class diamond at just over 3,200 square feet, its modern exterior is an empowering finish of Cumuru tropical hardwood, glass and steel. The indoor-outdoor lifestyle features a disappearing door system, a private 22 jet spa and views from most of the rooms. Each of the bedrooms are ensuite, the home theater is a cinematic experience and the upstairs entertainment includes a fireplace with hidden 60” Sony Bravia XBR TV that rises on your command. The kitchen has an elegant mixture of granite, marble and quartz with contemporary style Miele appliances. The windows are Fleetwood and the walnut floors are of a rugged French distress quality. To tie it all together magnificently, there is an elevator as well as a floating staircase. And, at first glance the wine room looks like a giant piece of art. It is. But, you can also use it and drink from it, because it’s real. Then, to make it all easy, this home is equipped with a fully automated Savant system with its Lutron lighting, shade system and state-of-the-art security.
