Ken Adam Presents 1904 The Strand, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266
By the Numbers: 4 Bedrooms 4 Bathrooms 3 Levels 5000 square feet $16,000,000 About the Home: Attention to luxurious detail is the theme of this Venetian Palazzo home perched high above the sand in Manhattan Beach. Constructed in 2006, this 5000 square foot beach escape resides on the most exclusive stretch of The Strand. The home was designed by the Warner Group of Santa Barbara and built by Nelson Daniels Construction of Beverly Hills -- and it shows. Three levels are spanned by a striking spiral staircase and topped with a domed ceiling. French limestone, solid walnut, and bronze are just a sample of the high-end materials woven throughout the home. Reclaimed from a chateau in France, the heated stone floors are certainly a sight to behold. Stepping into the home from the street level, guests are met by a grand living area and open kitchen. Three bedrooms, including the master suite, comprise much of the upper level, while in between the two, the middle level shines. It is here that the third bedroom and an office are joined by a sound proofed theatre, a Finnish sauna, and a 1400-bottle wine cellar. Being on The Strand, the allure of this home is, of course, not reserved to the inside. Spacious and artfully crafted outdoor living spaces include two beach-facing balconies and one patio. Each area effortlessly marries the beach lifestyle with the privacy and comfort of your own home, and the outdoor heating system means you can lounge and entertain here year-round. With its awe-inspiring views and luxurious design, 1904 The Strand is truly one of the finest homes ever built in Manhattan Beach.
