There is a perfected sense of balance within this newly constructed beachfront residence presented by renowned local builder, Kim Komick of KKC Fine Homes. The open concept floor plan encourages a constant flow of energy within a seamless, engaging environment. All the natural elements, including water, fire, earth, metal, and wood are balanced throughout, offering a refined sense of harmony. When every last detail has been addressed by a keen eye and precise execution, this is the result--a statement of turn-key luxury living.
Located front-and-center along the world class beaches of Southern California's Strand, this ultra-luxe new construction offering is situated to offer the very best in coastal living. A home fit to casually enjoy the more laid-back South Bay beach culture, yet still within reach of Los Angeles’ world-class dining, shopping, and industry. Add on the ease of destination travel with Los Angeles International Airport within a few minutes of home, and the location alone sets this luxury residence above the rest.
Floor-to-ceiling disappearing doors bridge the main living space with the beach beyond, echoing the magnificence of the natural landscape throughout the design. It is an indulgent space that cannot be duplicated and a truly one-of-a-kind setting for extravagant entertaining.
The perfect synergy between designer and builder results in a home with balanced function and a fresh, contemporary metropolitan aesthetic. A custom blackened stainless-steel pivot door is a welcoming focal point that opens wide to the lower level beach room. The perfect setting for a casual beach day entertaining family and friends, the beach room offers a full wet bar area and media space wired with 5.1 surround sound and set against a reclaimed Bain wood backdrop. The beach room opens wide to a thoughtfully planned, sunken private patio area which then steps up to a more visible sun deck which is ideally positioned to enjoy lounging while taking in an unobstructed view of the beach and the ocean beyond. A guest room and guest bath are also located on the entry level with the 3-stop elevator just steps away from direct access to the two-car garage. The beach room bath offers direct access from the exterior which is perfect when coming straight in from surfing or a day on the sand.
Follow the open, floating staircase to the more formal entertaining areas, set privately just above The Strand. Here is where one is reminded daily of the reason for living the Strand life; the living room showcases the crashing waves, passing sailboats, and gorgeous sunsets, complemented by a floor-to-ceiling panoramic door that opens direct to a walk-out deck. This endless view is captured from every vantage point within the main living and entertaining areas and is the ideal backdrop. The living room enjoys high ceilings, a linear fireplace flanked by custom built-ins, and beautiful French oak wood floors. The open concept floor-plan allows for effortless engagement and provides a balanced, fluid environment from which to enjoy family and friends. A dining area lies adjacent to the living room and seamlessly extends to the custom kitchen.
A beautifully customized “halo” drop-soffit is suspended over the kitchen island defining the space as a room within a room. This portion of lower ceiling enhances the taller adjacent spaces, balancing the important east-to-west flow of the home. The upper white cabinets in the kitchen are Luxe by Alvic and feature a durable high gloss, stain resistant surface providing a modern design aesthetic while being highly functional. The lower cabinets feature a custom milled rift white oak grain topped with enduring Neolith counter tops. The custom kitchen offers a Thermador appliance package that includes a 30” refrigerator tower and an 18” freezer tower. The island is finished with dual Neolith waterfall edges that carry the eye through the kitchen to the built-in breakfast area beyond; an inviting space for casual family meals. A large walk-in pantry allows for organized storage of small appliances and keeps clutter to a minimum. An elevator stop is close at hand for convenient delivery of grocery items from the garage to the kitchen area.
Architectural space is complemented by ideal function. The best Strand homes offer meticulously planned spaces that allow for enjoyment of both public and private spaces. The main bedrooms are all privately located on the uppermost level. Step up and into the private master suite and be greeted by a room filled with light and views of the ocean. The minimalist design of the room is intended to provide an environment where the balance and beauty of the ocean fills the space making it the first and last part of every day. A dramatic rising curved ceiling in the master bedroom retreat draws natural light through the room right to the luxurious master bath. The master bath features a warm-toned natural stone accent wall behind the stand-alone soaking tub. Wake up to a direct ocean view from the master suite and enjoy your coffee perched high above the morning activity on the beach from your private viewing deck. The master suite is pre-wired to accommodate future automated window coverings to create effortless environmental control for ultimate sleeping or lounging conditions.
Anyone looking to enjoy a blend of coastal living and a metropolitan backdrop, all find Hermosa Beach an ideal place to live. With the beach as an endless playground, 60 The Strand brilliantly utilizes the lifestyle advantages of Sand Section living. Leave the car behind and enjoy a bike ride along the world-famous Strand. Start the day with a vigorous surf session while the dolphins swim alongside, then shower off and head out. Join friends out on the sand for a game of beach volleyball, then grill up a healthy dinner while watching the sun set from your beach front deck. Enjoy the year-round community activities found along the beach and at nearby Pier Plaza. With so much to participate in after work and on weekends, there's little reason to leave the South Bay!
