Here is a high end Nantucket styled home in the Manhattan Beach Tree Section that radiates great execution! Begin at the sophisticated entry portico that leads you into the home. The home speaks volumes of classic architecture the moment you enter. You are welcomed in the New England Cape Cod tradition--high ceilings, custom wood wainscoting, encased windows, doors and wall openings. No shortcuts taken! The grand theme is carried through the home. Altogether, the open floor plan encompasses 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, family room, formal dining and a built in office at the end of the upstairs hallway--again done in classic terms. Embodying the complete vision of luxurious and detailed construction, the home features stone fireplaces, French doors, twin balconies, paneled ceilings, wide plank hardwood flooring, paneled front exterior and other subtle architectural delights. The kitchen combines elegance and functionality with marble counters, stainless steel appliances, and is completed with banquette seating for a cozy spot to dine. The family room opens up to the kitchen and informal dining areas for great entertainment options. Or throw open the family room doors to the completely private backyard surrounded by full grown trees. In summation, this is Manhattan Beach at its finest!
