Marina Strand Colony 2

Marina Del Rey CA 90292

Marina Strand Colony 2 is a 68 unit midrise condo development in the silver strand neighborhood of Marina Del Rey. Built in 1978 as a follow up by California Pacific Construction Co. to Marina Strand Colony I, this development was targeted for families as opposed to singles.

All of the floorplans in MSCII are townhouse style with 3 levels and a parking garage. The Buiding is clad in wood shingles that have been painted pastel colors. It feels very beachy and reminds me of the Hamptons!

Location

Everything on the silver strand is a 5-minute walk to the beach. Commercial at the dead end of Washington Blvd and Venice fishing pier provides a fishing village type atmosphere. There are plenty of site seers trying to get a taste of what Marina Strand Colony owners get to live every day.

I like cheesecake, so I can appreciate nearby Cheese Cake Factory on Via Marina.

The Marina Beach is a little more private then the public beach if you have very little children that are just gaining their sea legs.

And of course, if you like to sail, there is the Marina.

One of my favorite spots for shopping is nearby Abbott Kinney.

Real Estate

The condos are all 3 story townhouses- sorry no rooftop decks. Each condo has a private two car attached garage which is pretty groovy. You don’t get that with condos normally. The Living Room and kitchen is on the ground level and has huge vaulted ceilings.

Condos are all spacious with square footage ranging from 1,500-1,600 sqft. There are a few 3 bedroom condos, but most are two bedrooms.

Prices for these condos is $1,000,000 to $1,200,000 in todays market.
