Manhattan Beach Modern Masterpiece

What’s better than a modern home on the market? How about one that overlooks the beach? Here you go: This marvel built in 1995 by architect Patrick Killen is on the market for $5.2 million.

The owners purchased this Manhattan Beach, CA, beauty in 2014 for $3.89 million. They resolved to update the home “to bring it up to today’s modern excellence,” says listing agent Beth Morrissey with Re/Max Estate Properties.

To renovate the glass-and-concrete structure, the owners worked with architect Daryl Olesinski, an associate of Killen, who died in 2015. The agent says about a half-million dollars was spent on the remodel.

“It’s spectacular, but keeping in line with what Pat [Killen] would have done as well,” Morrissey adds.

The locale takes advantage of its hillside perch. Unfortunately, a few interior walls blocked the “180-degree ocean views,” Morrissey says. But now, glass pocket doors open to the west-facing decks, expanding the indoor-outdoor space along with the vistas. Wood flooring inside and on the balconies creates a seamless space.

The 4,266-square-foot layout features a reverse floor plan. On the upper level, the updated kitchen with white stone counters and a breakfast nook truly shines. The top level also features living and dining areas, which open to the decks. All five bedrooms, including the master suite, an office, and four baths are downstairs. 

The homeowners also gave the yard a refresh, with an ipe wood deck, built-in barbecue, and spa. There’s also a grassy area designed for entertaining.

“That turned out stunning,” Morrissey says. A three-car garage with storage completes the property.

Killen left his modernist mark on Southern California homes.

“They are increasing in value because of his reputation and excellence,” Morrissey says. “They rarely come up for sale. They have a timeless element to them.”
