The Best Part of Living at the Beach is…..Living at the Beach – Hermosa Walkstreets

By Keith KyleHermosa Beach walkstreet homes

The best part of living at the beach is…..living at the beach.  When it comes to really living at the beach,  the “walk streets” of Hermosa offer it all.  These pedestrian only “streets” are only found in the sand section and almost always mean that the homes are within a few blocks of the beach.

What makes these streets so unique and so valuable?

Most sand section homes on full lots face the street in the front, homes on both sides and an alley in the back.  Fronting the street means the obvious challenges of car noise, parking challenges and a much higher level of traffic, especially in the summer.  Walkstreets front a sidewalk instead of a street making for a much quieter, safer, and community friendly situation.

Most homes on these streets are full 30×90 foot lots with some being half lots or partial lots.  There is great demand by builders for
older “fixers” or tear downs due to the premium location.  Homes generally start in the $3,000,000 for a lot value sale and most larger homes start in the mid $5,000,000s.

63 18th StreetWhat makes the walkstreets different from the walkstreets in Manhattan Beach is the abundance of original beach bungalows.  As Hermosa has always had a bit more of a beach vibe, many of these older homes remain with some being beautifully remodeled and others still in fairly original condition.  These original cottages give these walkstreet a real beach feel and makes for an ideal environment to live the good life.

Unfortunately searching and finding homes only on walkstreets isn’t easy as there is no specific category on the local MLS to designate them.  If you would like to receive walkstreet listings please contact us or fill out our daily Hermosa Beach listing request and keep you notified anytime a new home comes on the market.
