It seems that just about everything on the Strand is now for sale and 1900 The Strand is the latest addition to this crowded beachfront market.
You can’t ask for a better location than this one and that’s really what you’re paying for. The home sits on a corner walkstreet lot meaning that not only are incredible views enjoyed from the beachfront side of the home, but the entire south facing side offers incredible views as well. With no direct neighbor on the south side, every window offers some type of view, light and beach breezes.
The home is very unusualy with almost 3700 square feet and only 2 bedrooms. There’s no doubt this was custom built in 1980 and the owners had a unique vision.

Beachfront corner lot hits the market in Manhattan
1800 The Strand, Manhattan Beach CA 90266
The newest addition to the busy beachfront home market on the Manhattan Beach Strand is a spacious single family home with over 5,300 square feet. The home sits on a beachfront corner lot making for much more expansive views and light from the south side of the home. These beachront homes on the Strand always have unblockable west view but are usually sandwiched between 2 equally large homes but not on 1800 The Strand. What is normally an afterthought is a highlight with ocean and Manhattan Pier views from the south side….which happens to be the longer part of the home.
The home itself offers 6 bedrooms on multiple ocean view levels. Having been built in 2000 the home is certainly in great shape but somewhat dated compared with more recent builds. At $27,000,000 we see this one being on the market a while despite the location and size.
The beachfront home market in Manhattan Beach was on fire in 2021 with a record number of home, townhome and condo sales. 2022 is starting off in a big way with several homes hitting the market. One was a record setter located at 3216 The Strand and priced at an eye popping $30.0M. The other seems modest in comparison but still pushing a former record price. New (but not really) to the beachfront home market is 1516 The Strand in Manhattan Beach. This beachfront home had been on the market last summer priced at $17,900,000 but it’s back with a slightly revised price. According to the listing, “The master suite encompasses the entire front portion of the top floor w/ a spacious balcony, his/hers separate cabinets, huge master closet. 2 addtl spacious bedrooms share a large bath. The middle floor features entry way, powder room & great room w/ kitchen & family room & a beautiful glass fireplace. Bottom floor features a full bar made of exotic leopard wood w/ white marble counters. Large family & play room w/ fireplace & surround sound. Large bedroom w/ sitting area.”
The latest addition to the busy beachfront real estate market is an older duplex on an amost 5,000 foot lot with 46 feet of beach frontage. Despite the square footage of approximately 3,640 square feet, this one is likely a lot sale as the value really is in the land. What makes this property special is the location and lot size with an oversized beachfront lot totalling almost 5,000 feet. Most lots in the neighborhood are generally around 3,500 square feet. Priced at $11,750,000 they’re banking on the oversized lot making this a higher number than usual for a lot sale. See all of the beachfront homes for sale on The Strand in Manhattan Beach.
It’s been a slow year for home sales on The Strand in Manhattan Beach. The Strand is the beachfront stretch of the “sand section” offering the absolute ideal beach lifestyle. With some pretty hefty price tags unaffordable for most, and an abundance of homes that have now been on the market, it’s been slow going to start off 2020. There has only been on closed home sale located at 2304 The Strand that sold for lot value at $7,400,000 (arguably below lot value) after over a year on the market and price reductions from $8,990,000 to $8,250,000 to $7,950,000 and eventually closing at $7.4M. As of 6/12 there are 6 homes for sale on the Manhattan Strand with several other “off market” offerings and a number of beachfront homes on the Hermosa Strand as well.
