Presenting a special residence reminiscent of years gone by. This authentic adobe bungalow is nestled on a leafy corner lot in the tree section and exudes hidden charm. Offering three bedrooms and two baths in 1299 square feet on a 4480 square foot lot, this original mid-century cottage was quite literally built by hand, including the beams, wallboards, and cabinets. Cozy and beloved, this family home boasts the original wood-beam ceilings, barn doors, hardwood and tile flooring, and a private patio covered in dappled sunshine through mature trees. The welcoming living room’s wall of windows lets in plentiful natural light, while a brick fireplace grounds the space and makes for cozy evenings. A long hallway leads to each room in the house, including a genuine 1950s kitchen, complete with the original sink, a small gas range and a glass patio door, to a full bath, sunny primary bedroom with French doors leading to the patio, and an additional bedroom and attached bath. An inviting library/den offers sliding glass doors to the covered courtyard and could be used as a private office. If location is everything, this is it! Close to Manhattan Village, the Greenbelt, and local shopping and dining, this darling home on the corner of Pine and Marine is situated to make life easy. A nod to simpler times, this residence is a gem in the center of Manhattan Beach, and the perfect place to call your own.
