I Want Ray Kappe's Scheimer House in Manhattan Beach

First time on the market since it was built in 1985, the $13.5M Ray Kappe-designed Scheimer house sits just above the sand on Manhattan Beach's scenic walking path known as the Strand. And this isn't just any beachfront pad -- this one came to party. The steel, concrete and glass, 5,200-square-foot house has floor-to-ceiling windows that take in grand views of the South Bay, the Manhattan Beach Pier and north to Malibu.

"It's one of the great party houses on the beach," real estate agent Crosby Doe of Crosby Doe Associates, one of the realtors representing the house.
