MANHATTAN BEACH, CA, US
1560 Curtis Avenue
Perched high on a corner lot, this Italian Villa has big city lights and mountain views and a sparkling salt water pool and spa, with spouting fountains and a flickering fire feature. Custom Built in 1998 with quality seldom seen even in new homes. Precast surrounds, and balustrades, smooth stucco, Anderson windows and doors, inset bead cabinetry, 8 foot int. doors, and custom stone counters, make this home timeless. Through double entry doors the sweeping staircase and soaring ceilings of the living room, with massive precast fireplace, lend dramatic appeal to a floor plan drenched with natural light from skylights above. The formal dining room has built-in lit hutches, and a butler's pantry connects to the kitchen, which has a double island, Subzero refrigerator and 48 Viking range. The breakfast nook overlooks the yard and family room, where a corner brick fireplace and built-in cabinets highlight the most significant space in the home. Sliding glass doors reveal a patio and outdoor kitchen area, with a grassy yard beyond. Lush plantings create a private oasis around the pool. There are 6 spacious BRs, 4 upstairs. The master suite has a massive walk-in closet, spacious bath with marble floors and counters and spa tub. The sitting area has broad views of Mount Baldy. The balcony overlooks the pool and yard. The basement includes an en-suite bedroom, laundry room and large play area, perfect for games or home theaters. 4-car garage and storage loft with pull down ladder.
