From Beach to Sky
They call it the "tallest home in Hermosa Beach."
3410 Hermosa Ave. is an architectural landmark in North Hermosa, standing tall and skinny and, reportedly, 10 feet over current height limits for the beach town. There are four full stories – one more than anyone can build now.
Imagine a 180-degree sunset view that's not even touched by pricier homes to the west on The Strand.
This unique modern drinks in its views in gulps, not sips.
The main common areas, including kitchen and living rooms, are on the top floor, so you can share those views with friends and relations.
Bedrooms get nice views, too, with the master getting ocean and the other bedroom (just 2 bedrooms in this home) sees homes and rooftops around the area.
The home is called "[a]n early work by the internationally acclaimed 'Morphosis' design team led by Thom Mayne," using stainless steel, concrete and natural elements to create a home that's got a warmer feel than you might imagine from the metallic exterior.
The asking price to begin: $5.000M.
The home recently traded in 2013 for $4.600M.
UPDATE: There's now a second, separate listing for the house plus the corner lot, making this a "double lot" offering. That's showing on the market as 3400 Hermosa Ave. at $8.750M.
