They don’t make them like this anymore. No, really - they don’t because they can’t. Built before zoning laws reduced square footage requirements and nixed rooftop decks, this five-bed, five-bath corner lot home was the FIRST large home in Manhattan Beach, constructed by the esteemed Steve Legare. Only one home can boast that, and it's finally available to buy.

The three-story, 5700 square-foot Mediterranean is built to entertain, with a main floor living space that rivals the size of most homes. Each room flows into the next, all providing their own function and character. Fun and unique features pepper the home, from a built-in old-school wet bar to a cedar sauna in the basement. That’s right - this home also has a basement, complete with a vast spare bedroom with en suite, massive laundry room, wine cellar, and gym/sauna. And then, just when you think the house cannot offer any more space, you find a six-car garage. Six!

Steve Legare, a man who rebuilt a large part of Manhattan Beach, says his favorite part of the home is the sprawling panoramic deck. The home is topped, literally and figuratively, by its 200+ square-foot rooftop deck, a luxurious relic from pre-zoning days. The terrace is one of the highest points in Manhattan Beach, level with the 5th Street water tower. Parties up here enjoy uninterrupted, 360-degree views of the San Gabriel Mountains, Downtown LA, Catalina Island, and nearly every street of the beloved Manhattan Beach.

The first big home in Manhattan Beach is on the market for the first time since it was built in 1985. Don’t miss this slice of the old Manhattan Beach, a home with unrivaled storage space, room for the whole family and more, and the best views our town offers
