Home descriptions never fail to remind you that opportunity is knocking, but in the case of 220 42nd Street, it’s carrying a bullhorn… and probably wearing a wetsuit. This Manhattan Beach charmer sits just 520 feet (208 steps) from the legendary El Porto surf, and boasts commanding, front-row views of breaking waves, the intoxicating blues of the Pacific Ocean, and even the distant shores of Malibu.
But 220 42nd Street isn’t just a scenic viewpoint: it’s a *home,* and one brimming with character at that. With three bedrooms, a bonus room, upper and lower-level living rooms, two bathrooms and parking for three cars, there’s room for everything and everyone. The upper level’s ocean-view kitchen includes an electric Viking range, and the adjacent open-concept dining area with brick fireplace opens to a balcony with equally-impressive ocean vistas.
With tongue & groove ceilings above, engineered hardwood flooring below, copper plumbing, charming bay windows and even a jetted tub in the upstairs bathroom, you’d be hard-pressed to be dragged away from 220 42nd Street for any reason… but having North Manhattan Beach’s legendary dining, nightlife, coffee shops & boutiques just a 5-minute stroll away should be more than enough enticement. And if you’re a commuter, rest easy… you live just minutes from the Westside.
Not that leaving your new beach pad would be easy… but it’s far easier than losing it forever. Opportunity’s bullhorn will be heard for miles, so you’d best answer the call before all this charm, all this space and all these views belong to someone else.
