One of the most prominent and historically significant residences in the South Bay, the Halfhill-Bell Queen Anne Colonial Revival Victorian mansion was built between 1903 and 1905 for Albert P. Halfhill, the inventor of tuna canning. Originally built overlooking MacArthur Park (then Westlake Park), the once grand home was purchased by the Bell family in 1983 and transported to Manhattan Beach where it underwent extensive restoration for the next 12 years. Decorative elements such as the foyer's fretwork plus the wainscoting, leaded and stained glass windows, pocket doors, and period lighting fixtures created an authentic Victorian showpiece. The home includes 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, front and rear parlors separated by pocket doors, formal dining room with built-in sideboard, spacious kitchen with butler's pantry, separate breakfast room, and a large multi-purpose third floor. The Bells received an award from the Los Angeles Conservancy as well as recognition from The Manhattan Beach Cultural Heritage Conservatory. The 600 square feet above the detached 3 car garage is electrical and plumbing ready for an ADU, home office, or Mother-in-laws suite. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in an architectural treasure while making memories for the future.
