3500 The Strand – The Beverly Hills 90210 Beach House on the Market

By Keith Kyle

If you were born during or around the 70’s or just a pop culture fan, you’re certainly going to remember this house.  This is the place where Dylan, Brandon, Brenda and the rest of them hung out for the summer.  It also was a big turning point in the popularity of the show from what we’ve read as the show went from pretty tame to a bit racier when they hit the beach.

The home is actually located at 3500 The Strand in Hermosa Beach and is the very last home before the Strand takes a short push east and sits right on the border of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa.  It’s certainly not the only famous home in town but it’s one of the more recognizable.  We’re not quite sure how the 90210 crowd had it laid out, but it’s actually a triplex and given the unique location it fronts the beach on two sides.

All of this nostalgia and fame (more likely an extremely unique location for a future home) can be yours for a cool $16,500,000.  Contact us for more information.

Notable Hermosa Beach Sand Section Sales

By Keith Kyle

December saw some significant sales and some huge numbers in the sand section of Hermosa Beach. Here are some of the notable sales.

View the current homes for sale in the sand section of Hermosa Beach.

506 25th Street Hermosa Beach506 25th Street – Sold at $2,265,000 – While this new construction from KKC didn’t sell at the list price of just under $2.4M this is a huge number for a townhome on the back side of the hill (or sand dune). It was a beautiful 2700 foot 4 bed, 3 1/2 bath detached townhome with high end finishes, but this is a huge number given that there were four homes all with very similar finishes and appearance. That’s a big number to pay given the situation but all 4 units have sold relatively quickly.

444 Hermosa Ave #102 – Sold at 444 Hermosa Ave Hermosa Beach$1,475,000 – This is a smaller 6 unit building in  a fantastic location just a 1/2 block to the beach but $1.5M for a condo is another milestone price. As it’s a 1st floor unit it has little to no ocean/beach views. The appeal to the units in this building is that they’re a great size at over 1700 feet, with 3 bedroom and it’s all on the same level. All of the units we’ve seen in this building have been great and this one was no exception as it was completely turnkey, but nearing $1.5 for a condo is fairly incredible.

1517 Hermosa Ave Hermosa Beach1517 Hermosa Ave – Sold at $3,730,000 – If this isn’t an indication of just how valuable walkstreet properties have become, we don’t know what is. 1517 Hermosa is a detached townhome on the corner of the walkstreet on 16th Street and Hermosa Ave. Although it’s on the beach side of the street this is still an incredible number for the combination of townhome and fairly busy street. It was a beautiful home and very well done, but still a pretty clear indication that we’re at an all time high in the sand section.

Oceanfront Abundance – Beachfront Strand Homes for Sale in Hermosa Beach

By Keith Kyle

It’s unusual that in a market in which the inventory remains so low and buyers will scratch and claw for just about any properties in the Sand Section, that the inventory of oceanfront homes remains very high.  The obvious explanation is that most buyers are priced out of homes now starting in the $7.0M range, but this is a town of seemingly endless wealth.  What really is driving this is the combination of the exclusivity of being able to buy an oceanfront home and the pace at which home prices along this rare stretch of beach have risen.  Of the homes currently on the market (not including the condo hotel of the Beach House)and sold in the past 18 months the average sale price is almost $10.5M.

315 26th Street – Legal Triplex in the Sand Section

315 26th Street, Hermosa Beach – Triplex for sale 3 blocks to the beach315_26th_St_front1 copy

Price $2,250,000

This is a great opportunity for the savvy investor searching for rare beach properties in an ideal location.  Legal non-conforming triplex with a bonus bed/bath.  Tax records show a total square footage of 2048

Front house is a 2 bed/1 bath detached home with some ocean views.  According to the tax records there is another bedroom and bath for the unit but they are not attached and are downstairs off of the garage.  It’s not currently being used but could be used for a bonus unit.  It has a separate entrance and no kitchen so technically it’s part of the upstairs unit.  It would need quite a bit of work to make it usable, but the owner has used it in the past and it could be a great option for a future owner.   The front house has a one car garage and a workshop that has the laundry (for all units) in it.

Sunset at 26th StreetBack house has two units and the two houses are separated by a patio.  Upstairs rear house is a small 2 bed/1 bath.

Back house lower is a one bedroom/1 bath.  There is a one car garage but it’s been used to make the lower unit larger and has been like that for a very long time.

It’s a street to alley lot 3 blocks from the beach.   The most recent multi unit properties in the neighborhood were:  301 28th Street listed for $1,850,000 and sold for $2,250,000 (duplex with 2 2bed/1 bath units at 1500 feet total) and 227 29th Street listed at $2,250,000 sold at $2,330,000 (duplex with 2 2bed/2 bath units at a little under 2500 feet)
