Far away from the concrete jungle of New York City’s Manhattan, Manhattan Beach in California is a totally different terrain. The beachy area is popular with outdoor enthusiasts and families for it’s laid-back atmosphere, and actress Zooey Deschanel has had a sweet spot here since 2015. The charming, Cape Cod-style home has been on and off the market for the past couple years now, but the New Girl
star finally sold it last week for $4.7 million.Though Manhattan Beach may radiate relaxed California vibes, luxury is not left behind at this classic coastal pad. Offering 5,320-square-feet of living space, 6 bedrooms, and 6.5 bathrooms, there’s plenty of space for having friends and family over for weekend getaways. With Los Angeles just minutes away by car (well, minus traffic), this is an idyllic place to unwind all year round.The house is centered around entertaining, with the chef’s kitchen sitting perfectly in between the family and living room, and also opening to the picturesque back patio. With four eating areas to choose from both inside and out, food at this home can always be an event for gathering, whether it’s for a glam dinner party or a casual night in.This deal was wonderful for Compass all around. Tad Thormodsgaard of Palm Realty Boutique, Inc had the celebrity listing
, and Kathleen Cartier & Sloane Sanders of The Cartier Sanders Team at Compass represented the buyer.
