Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I am an oil artist and have lived in my serene beach home for 35 years raising my beach loving family. I am active and love the outdoors and adventure. I travel around the world to exotic places and over the years have looked for another place to live. I always love coming back to Hermosa. I have spent many joyful years watching sunsets, surfing, riding bikes, and basking in the sun.

Why the Owner Chose Hermosa Beach, CA, USA:
Years ago I left upstate New York after graduating from college and traveled to the West coast. I was destined to find the South Bay and have lived around the area since. I fell in love with Hermosa Beach. It was small town and safe. I raised my children here. Despite its growth, it is still a little surf town close to the big city. My family grew up to love the beach, the outdoors, water beach sports and beach activities. We always loved riding our bikes or walking to restaurants because Hermosa is a pedestrian community. This house has brought us many years of joy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My home has both charm and a calming vibe. I love relaxing in the front yard or hiding out in privacy in the back yard. One of the special attractions to my home was its architecture. It was built in 1897 and more recently renovated while maintaining it character. There are still many original touches such as Douglas fir floors and the interior craftsman columns in the doorways. The river stones on the walls create a mountain home at the beach. I have hung many of own paintings creations on my walls and enjoy walking by each piece daily to experience their energy.
