Contemporary Oasis Steps from the Sand
Just steps from the famed Strand in Hermosa Beach lies 2818 Hermosa Avenue. Exemplifying contemporary living at the beach, this four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home elegantly melds raw materials with a generous floor plan. An aged copper awning and lush flagstone courtyard with soothing fountain create an arboreal entry to the glass front door. Just inside the soaring ceiling entryway you’ll find a bedroom characterized by a reclaimed wood ceiling, hardwood floors and open-shelf built-ins along one wall. The updated adjacent full bath boasts a uniquely curved vanity with two sinks, stainless finishes and tile flooring.
As you head up the gorgeous stone staircase with stainless steel handrails, the landing affords balcony access with sliding glass doors for taking in the ocean view and cool breezes. To your right you’ll find the bright open spaces of a family room, dining area and kitchen. The cozy family room is flanked by frosted windows, letting in light while ensuring privacy. Further balcony access is closest to the dining area, showcased by an artistic metallic pendant and travertine floors. Bathed in natural light, the kitchen is defined by maple cabinetry, top-of-the-line Viking appliances, a large island with breakfast bar, granite countertops and a built-in wine fridge. Beyond the kitchen lies a separate laundry room with ample storage as well as a powder room and private home office or den with maple built-ins.
The dazzling living room impresses with a vaulted raw wood ceiling, allowing for an abundance of natural light and air flow and complementing the wall of windows overlooking the Pacific. A floor-to-ceiling travertine gas fireplace suggests cozying up by the fire on chilly evenings. Step out onto your private balcony and take in the views from Palos Verdes to Malibu while watching dolphins frolic in the surf.
The uppermost level of this ocean-view home is comprised of the loft-style Master Suite. Vaulted wood ceilings and wall-length built-ins as well as a charming window seat continue the modern aesthetic, and a step-out deck provides additional views from the choicest vantage point. The Master bath offers a sophisticated sleek design indicated by travertine walls, penny tile floors and wood beams all illuminated by natural light. The walk-in Master closet provides plenty of storage and custom built-ins.
An additional two bedrooms offering hardwood floors and a bright, clean contemporary feel as well as an added bath complete the home. Parking is provided in two one-car garages. With a contemporary flair and beachside location in north Hermosa Beach, this home presents an opportunity to live in style in a truly coveted setting.
