One of the best things about living in Hermosa Beach is….well….living at the beach. Hermosa is a great beach town with a real sense of old time community. One of the housing options fairly unique to Hermosa is the walkstreets. There are not all that many and most of the walkstreets are either west of Hermosa Ave, meaning right on the beach, or the few in the north sand section just a few blocks back.
Nowhere is there better beach style living than the homes of the Hermosa Beach walkstreets with a combination of new construction mixed with fantastic original beach bungalows. The new home listing at 63 18th Street happens to be one of those cool beach cottages that remind you casual summer days and the relaxed feeling of summer vacation.
The home actually consist of a 3 bed/2 bath main house and a 1/1 apartment over the garage. The listing agent David Caskey describes it as:
“a classic two-story cottage style home, straight out of a coastal living magazine, w/3 bedrooms & 2 baths in the main house & a bonus 1 bedroom apartment/loft over the garage in the rear! A large front patio opens to the tree lined walk street that leads right to the beach, w/abundant space for outdoor dining & entertainment, while a courtyard lies between the units providing a patio for the rear unit or just a more private area to enjoy.”
