Commandingly perched on an oversized corner lot just steps from the beach and boasting sweeping, sand, wave & horizon views, 2160 Monterey Blvd is a true Hermosa Beach icon that can never be replicated.
Envisioned by noted architect Earl Heitschmidt (designer of the original CBS Studios building, Biltmore Hotel and William Wrigley Estate), this modernist private resort features 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 3 levels of dramatic, light-filled living space. Built for effortless entertaining, the home’s open-concept main level artfully combines a large living space with fireplace, terrace, airy dining area and sleek chef’s kitchen with stainless appliances… all sharing breathtaking ocean views. Rounding out the main level are 2 guest bedrooms.
Ascending the light-flooded, atrium-lined central staircase brings you to the owner’s escape. Here, a spacious bedroom, private office, custom walk-in closet and spa-like, skylit bathroom with twin sinks, double-headed shower and sumptuous soaking tub create an intoxicating ambiance framed by jaw-dropping ocean vistas. The best location for spotting waves, however, is either this level’s massive terrace with fire pit and custom designed, motorized retractable awnings… or the home’s crown: a rooftop terrace with 360° views.
Descending to the home’s first floor is a revelation. Here, a spacious family/game/entertainment room opens to a breathtaking backyard, almost unheard of in the sand section: intensely private, bursting with mature tropical landscaping and wrapping dramatically around the home, this secluded zen-like space offers a cedar hot tub, fire pit, water features, BBQ, outdoor shower and built-in seating.
Back inside, a spa bathroom features a sauna, and beyond lies a 480 SF sleeping/living quarters, kitchen, walk-in closet, full bathroom, and separate entrance. A clever sliding/locking wall allows the space to be locked off for independent living or fully integrated into the home.
Surrounding the oversized corner lot is an adjacent 1,360 SF of city-owned land, which is fully integrated into the property with a rare sand section landscape of succulents and fruit trees, long cultivated by the Huntington Museum’s bonsai legend Ben Oki.
Current setback/height limits ensure that nothing like this home can ever be built again. This one-of-a-kind architectural icon could still be your personal coastal estate, but the opportunity will disappear forever if you don’t act soon.
