The property sold for $58 million, or $347,305 per space.
“Centrally located in beautiful Huntington Beach, Skandia Mobile Country Club is a five-star manufactured housing community with 167 units, primarily consisting of double-wide spaces, which are all tenant-owned homes,” said Jeff Benson, senior vice president investments, Marcus & Millichap. “This property offered buyers a rare opportunity to acquire a trophy asset in one of Southern California’s most sought-after destinations.” Benson and Samuel Neumark, senior associate, represented the seller, the Coulter Family Trust, and procured the buyer, Investment Property Group.
Built in 1963 on over 17 acres, Skandia Mobile Country Club provides residents with access to a community pool, spa, game room and clubhouse with a full kitchen.
