After sitting on the market for eight months, this beauty was finally sold earlier this month. One of the most expensive sales in January, it was originally listed for $3,750,000 and sold for $250,000 under asking price. With 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 3,766 square feet of living space, the home sits on a 4,683 square foot lot. The home has a modern design with imported and exotic finishes. With all of its unique finishes, it’s no wonder this property took a while to be found by the perfect buyer.  The three level elevator and large media room truly set this home apart from the rest. 911 Duncan is one of the most expensive sales since the New Year.

Architectural Styles in Manhattan Beach

Architectural Styles In Manhattan Beach

When working with our clients, we always get asked about the different architectural styles in Manhattan Beach. Like fashion, popular styles change and go through ebbs and flows throughout the years. With tastes and preferences ranging from one spectrum to the next, we think it’s time to break down some of the most popular and sought after architectural styles in Manhattan Beach.

The current top 3 sought after home styles we hear about from our clients are Cape Cod, Mediterranean & Contemporary homes. In recent years, builders have flocked to these top three styles as a surefire way to get massive buyer interest.

Cape Cod

If you’ve looked at homes in Manhattan Beach lately, we’re sure you’ve taken a peak at one or two cape cod’s that are on the market. Historically, Cape Cod architecture originates from 17th Century, New England. The steep roof was a design element added to keep the snow from staying on the roof and the shutters were added as a protective measure against New England storms.

Although modern Cape Cod homes have not stayed completely true to the New England style, they still carry several elements that make them identifiable to homebuyers. The clapboard or shake shingle siding that’s added to the exterior of Cape Cod’s has become a quintessential element to the architectural design. Interiors are usually built and painted with white/light colors and stones. Cape Cod’s are distinct in the fact that all trim and doors are painted white, which helps highlight the usual Cape Cod seaside color pallet throughout the home.
