On a quiet cul-de-sac adjacent to the Greenbelt, South Park and the Strand & beach, you’ll find Hermosa Beach’s first warehouse conversion. The sturdy once-commercial building on a double lot is poised in this eclectic beachy residential neighborhood, a balanced & symmetrical structure softened with smooth stucco, plentiful windows and French doors, and custom Venetian balustrade. Once inside the gates, the owner/designer’s artistic vision is truly revealed -- “the property feels very private and has a warm, peaceful atmosphere and personality”.
The conversion has kept all the redeeming elements of the warehouse but utilizes a modern industrial aesthetic. Architectural elements include concrete and wide-plank wood flooring, thick sturdy walls, functional alcoves, exposed reconstructed wood joist ceilings, and large skylights throughout creating wonderful natural light.
The great room with fireplace is the center of the residence with an open modular floor plan of kitchen, living, dining and natural flow to the hedged front yard, ideal for entertaining. The master suite includes a fireplace, French doors that open onto small porticos, a large oak walk-in closet, and generous spa bathroom. Two additional bedrooms on the lower level have a shared bathroom with modern finishes, and plenty of storage. Step up the fanciful wooden staircase to second level 4th bedroom / bonus room with full bath.
Character Details include a drought resistant front yard, wine cellar that holds 144 bottles with natural climate control, a recording studio, large garage with storage, parking for three additional cars on-site, stainless steel appliances, outdoor living room with fire pit, enormous second level rooftop space and 3rd level rooftop deck with ocean views.
This 3200+ square foot house on a large 5,004 double lot is an industrial / modernist dream offering a rare artistic living space in desirable Hermosa Beach.
