Just a stroll away from the beach, this 1962 abode has been carefully updated and offers plenty of flexible space.

After having been lovingly tended for nearly four decades by the same owner, this striking midcentury home is currently seeking a new buyer. Nestled amid the coveted "walk streets" of Manhattan Beach, California—meaning owners walk up to the homes rather than drive into a garage—the 2,861-square-foot abode boasts an exceptionally convenient location, all while providing serenity and privacy. 

The 1962 midcentury is entered through a large private gate with lush greenery along one side.
