Unveiling the Future of Luxury Living: A $30 Million Oceanview Smart Home in Manhattan Beach


Imagine waking up to the soothing sound of waves crashing against the shore, with unobstructed ocean views stretching as far as the eye can see. This dream becomes a reality in the heart of Manhattan Beach, where a remarkable smart home, listed at a staggering $29.9 million, awaits its new owner.

Nestled atop a hill, this newer Manhattan Beach residence is a symphony of contemporary design, sustainability, and state-of-the-art technology. Clad in cedar and glass, with scalloped concrete walls resembling gentle waves, this property stands as a testament to modern luxury living.

Originally purchased by tech investor Jeffrey Schumacher and his wife, Jamie, in November 2021, the property underwent a transformation guided by the vision of multidisciplinary architecture studio Laney LA. The result is a six-bedroom, 9,479-square-foot masterpiece that seamlessly blends with its coastal surroundings.

As you step inside, you'll be greeted by a minimalist kitchen featuring a built-in bench on the island, perfect for casual breakfasts. Automated glass walls by Otimma open up to the landscaped pool terrace, creating a harmonious fusion of indoor and outdoor living spaces.


The dining room boasts a large pocket door framing the side yard's raised plantings, enhancing the connection with nature. Deep overhangs from the upper floor and roof create a shaded patio with a fireplace, where you can unwind and take in the breathtaking views.

This smart home redefines convenience with its cutting-edge amenities. It features 48 rooftop solar panels, Tesla Powerwalls for whole-home backup, and a sophisticated heating and cooling system that divides the house into 14 different zones, each controlled by a thermostat.

For those seeking the ultimate in entertainment and relaxation, this home has it all. An office, a detached gym, a theater, a game room, a wine cellar, and a wet bar cater to your every need.

If you've ever dreamed of living in a technologically advanced, eco-friendly paradise, this Manhattan Beach smart home is the embodiment of that dream. Now, it's on the market, waiting for the right owner to embrace its luxurious, sustainable, and innovative lifestyle.


If you're ready to make Manhattan Beach your home and experience the future of luxury living, let's connect. Your dream oceanview smart home awaits you.
