Beachfront home sales have been a challenge lately as the combination of a high number of homes on the market and lofty prices have made for a slow market. We recently mentioned the home at 3033 The Strand as it’s on a very nice sized lot with great beach frontage. The north Hermosa location is ideal as it’s quieter than areas down near the pier and is about equidistant from downtown areas of both Manhattan and Hermosa. We’ll keep you posted if and when this home closes and the sales price can be released.
Historic Hermosa - 3033 The Strand beachfront home
3033 The Strand in Hermosa Beach was just recently relisted and while we’re a bit biased (we love older beach homes with that original beach look and feel) this is an interesting home due to the beach frontage. Originally listed in the spring of 2019, the home came out at $19,000,000. A few price reductions later it was eventually taken off the market. It’s recently come back on for a more reasonable $14,900,000. The home was built in 1932 so it’s been an iconic property on the Strand for almost 100 years. Sitting on 45′ wide lot it’s ideally located in north Hermosa so just a bit quieter than homes closer to the pier. Although it is most likely being sold strictly for the land, the current home offers 6 bedrooms, 7 baths and a bit over 4,000 square feet.

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.

Pricing and Patience Key When Selling Oceanfront Homes in Manhattan Beach
The market for beachfront homes on the Strand in Manhattan Beach is very unlike the rest of the South Bay or even the rest of Manhattan Beach. As these oceanfront homes garner prices unrealistic for even high end home buyers, they often sit on the market or have numerous price reductions before selling. As they’re also frequently pulled off of the market and then put back on with different realtors, the days on market is actually considerably higher than it shows. Some homes can sit on the market for several years.
At the moment there are 5 active homes for sale on The Strand in Manhattan Beach, but that’s with 4 homes recently being removed from the MLS or expiring. Most of these are likely to make another apppearance soon.

2426 The Strand - Beachfront home for sale in Hermosa Beach
Although it’s been on the market for quite a while they just had a major price reduction on the beachfront duplex at 2426 The Strand in Hermosa Beach. While price reductions on homes on The Strand in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach are very common this was a big drop. The home price dropped from $19,250,000 (which was extremely aggressive) to $15,295,000. We’ll see if that makes a difference as the oceanfront home market is quite slow despite a recent uptick in home sales along the beach.
