This Manhattan Beach home is all dressed for the holiday season, and can be toured on the Sandpipers' Holiday Homes Tour.
The 10,428-square-foot Mediterranean estate designed by Tomaro Design Group offers seven bedrooms and 10 bathrooms in a hidden Manhattan Beach neighborhood. It was built in 2009 by Mike Davis Custom Homes. The main living area has an open and flowing indoor/outdoor floorplan that leads to a phenomenal backyard. The grounds offer numerous outdoor gathering areas including an impressive infinity pool and glass-tiled spa, an exterior living room with fireplace, a sunken conversation pit with a fire hearth, and a large outdoor BBQ/kitchen area with a breakfast bar.
The private estate joins three other homes to provide the holiday home tour experience of a lifetime. DigMB exclusively toured one home in MB and one in Hermosa Beach Friday, and found them to be design masterpieces you'll want to see.
The residence at 822 John St. boats holiday staging and decor by Maureen McBride of Tabula Rasa Essentials, and floral arrangements by Kate Piliero of Floret Cadet of Manhattan Beach. The home was renovated in 2010 by Louie Tomaro of Tomaro Design and includes 100-year-old reclaimed New England barn wood used for ceilings, a wrap-around balcony at the back of the home that overlooks a custom-designed koi pond and waterfall fountain and tranquil landscaping, and a festively decorated interior with coastal influences.
