A showcase of bright ideas in Manhattan Beach
This newly built contemporary in Manhattan Beach makes the most of state-of-the-art and resource-saving features as Sunset magazine’s 2014 Idea House. The sensor doorbell takes a photo of visitors and sends it to the homeowner’s smartphone. Speakers embedded in the drywall provide audio without visible speakers. A low-water lawn of “no mow” red fescue is part of the water-conserving landscaping.
