First Look: Luxury and Architecture in Hermosa Beach, $5MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 477 25th Street, Hermosa Beach
What: A recently completed home designed by the late Patrick J. Killen and his firm Studio 9one2, architects with broad experience in designing family-friendly modern homes in LA’s beach communities. Sited on a corner lot and a slight rise, the home not only has broad views and is located only about 500 yards from the sand, but nearly every room opens to a terrace, deck, or lawn.
Reverse Plan: The master suite and three bedrooms occupy the lower level with the expansive living/entertaining space bridging the upper level, all anchored by a 30-ft high stacked stone wall. A window (below) catches a glimpse of the stairway to the roof deck.
Below, a clever notch in the dining area wall frames the view.
More: A joint listing with Meredith Johnson of Sotheby’s International Realty and Mark Kitching of Partners Trust. Check out the agents’ online brochure here for addtional details, images and video. For more about the work of Patrick J. Killen, head over to the Studio 9one2 site.
