Manhattan Beach Mystery

08 Aug

Was Errol really ever Master of this recently-sold-for-$4M Manhattan Beach Manse? Or is this a Suburban Flynnian Myth? Anyone out there know?

“Originally built in 1934 and owned by Errol Flynn, this exquisite home exemplifies how a historic piece can be modernized while brilliantly maintaining the elemental setting of the beach. At 4,200 square feet, this spectacular home has three levels: the ground floor accommodates the living and dining rooms, kitchen and wine area; the mid-level features a billiard room, two bedrooms, and a playroom; and the third level hosts the master suite with a large entertainment deck area with fireplace and panoramic unobstructed ocean views.

A team of experts worked to modernize this home while keeping its history. In an effort to preserve the allure of the 1930?s and the Deco era, materials such as glass and stainless steel were used to magnify the appeal and charm that time period had to offer. No detail was neglected in the creation of this magnificent rejuvenation which epitomizes the charisma of the era in which its style was born.”
