SUNSET BEACH, CA – Represented by First Team Real Estate agent Liz (Wagner) Flores, 16501 S Pacific closed for $3,120,000 this April off-market, with the buyer brought by First Team agents Markus and Heidi Brown. The owners did not know how long it would take for their beach home on the sand to sell in today’s market amid COVID-19, but thanks to the power of teamwork among First Team agents, the sale was swiftly and expertly handled off-market. The property was placed on First Team’s proprietary SNEAKPREVIEW℠ system which internally markets company listings that are off-market or coming soon and got matched up with a buyer in no time.
Including a 2,822-square-foot main house with three en suite bedrooms and an 800-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bath rental unit, this unique beach home within the quaint Sunset Beach community features a private beach area and ocean views from every room. Undergoing an extensive remodel, the property still maintains an authentic mid-century aesthetic with original fixtures and décor from the 1950s and 60s with modern conveniences. Lovingly maintained by the previous owners as a much-used second home, the grounds include an expansive deck and lush natural landscaping.
“Our clients fell in love with the natural sand dune landscape, brightened by the native succulents and backdrop of amazing ocean views, which is why they ultimately decided to trade their secluded, suburban lifestyle with city views for the active lifestyle this beach property offers,” explains Markus Brown. “Located across the street from Huntington Harbour, our clients can’t wait to start paddle boarding, riding their bikes down PCH and walking to the bars and restaurants sunset beach has to offer.”
Classically beautiful mid-century architectural elements within the property include beamed ceilings, natural stone accents and wood paneling in several rooms. Complete with a study featuring 15-foot soaring ceilings and a wall of custom built-in bookshelves, no expense was spared in the vision and execution of this home.
“The owners spent nearly every weekend in this beach house, planting and caring for the landscaping themselves and pouring love into the home – and it shows,” shares Liz Flores. “From the gorgeous picture windows to the soaring ceilings, whenever I visited this property, I never wanted to leave!”
Built around picture windows to showcase the incredible views, the master retreat with three separate sitting areas is perhaps the most impressive room of the house including a fireplace, spa-like master bath and walk out balcony.
“My clients thought they’d retire in this beach home, but once they found a property in North Tustin close to their children and grandchildren, they knew it was meant to be,” said Liz. “Nothing makes me happier than creating a seamless selling experience so my clients can move onto the next phase of their life without a care in the world. My sellers have already sent me pictures from their new backyard jacuzzi, which means I’ve done my job right.”
