416 2nd Street, Manhattan Beach, CA
Built in 2005, this home deserves the title "Made in France." Its authenticity is recognizable to the well-traveled buyers, because many of the amenities were purchased overseas: hand-carved doors, custom-carved cabinetry, and marble features. This is 5,268 sqft rarely seen in the sand section. Detail by detail, this home is one of the most unparalleled and beautiful homes in the Robinson School district. Spotlighted at the 2011 Snoop's Home Tour, it's impressive from its stunning maple staircase and antique chandelier from a 1920's New York hotel. The antique stone fireplace in the living room will catch your attention as will the authentic reclaimed Dalle de Bourgogne limestone floors. The kitchen has dual side-by-side Sub Zeros, a 65cm La Cornue stove w/ brass pot filler, a center island with Calacatta marble and a prep sink. 5 beds, 5 1/2 baths; yet it is the master suite that impresses: custom walk-in closet, walnut parquet floors, stone floors, dual sinks, carved stone fireplace. The design continues to surprise with the media room with 100" screen and 2500-bottle wine cellar. There is also a project/craft room, sun room with antique French reclaimed terra cotta flooring, outdoor fireplace, built-in bar, rooftop barbeque and hillside views.
