Recent Beachfront Home Sale at 1534 The Strand in Hermosa Beach Sells for $8,700,000

1534 The Strand, Hermosa Beach

Another recent sale on the beachfront strip known as the Strand in Hermosa Beach reveals a bit about this high end market.  The home at 1534 The Strand had been on the market for quite a while and was originally listed with another agent.  The home was originally priced at $11,900,000 back in June of 2019 with a number of price reductions leading up to the final list price of $9,999,000.  This beachfront home eventually sold for $3.2M below the original list price which is pretty reflective of the Strand real estate market in both Hermosa and Manhattan Beach.

The home was very nice with quite an abundance of custom features.   The top level was pretty spectacular and the showcase of the home with a huge deck that offered an ocean view jacuzzi, outdoor kitchen, spacious seating area and something pretty rare for Strand homes…..a bit of privacy.

Explore the Beachfront Community of Portuguese Bend Beach Club in Palos Verdes

Welcome to the Portuguese bend beach club

vacation style living in Palos Verdes

The Portuguese Bend Club is unlike anything in the South Bay and Southern California….It’s like being transported to another time and place and feels more like a vacation community on a quiet beach in Mexico or Southern California in the 50’s. When your there it’s hard to believe that you’re still so close to the busy hustle and bustle of Los Angeles.   The homes are generally older with some new and newer construction starting to be an influence.  It has a very relaxed artsy community vibe with long term owners that love owning their little slice of paradise.

The fairly steep hillside location means that most homes have absolutely stunning views of the ocean.  The private beach feels like a small resort with paddle ball and beach palapas.

Want an even easier way to search for homes in the Portuguese Bend Club?  Tell us just a bit about your ideal home and we’ll customize a search just for you and let you know the moment a new listing hits the market.  Never miss a PBC listing again!

PBC ammenities include a private beach with it’s own lifeguard, 24-hour gated security, paddle tennis courts, playground, palapas and barbecues on the beach. This truly is vacation living. Escape from the city and live life on vacation.
