Hermosa Hills Historic Beach Cottage
925 15TH PLACE, HERMOSA BEACH // $1,550,000
2 BEDS | 1 BATH | 1,029 SQ. FT. | .08 ACRES | $1,506 PRICE/SQ. FT.
New to the market this week is an absolutely precious and impeccably renovated 1928 French country-inspired cottage. The home enchants anyone with a passion for the details in historic homes, but it is Tiny. Tiny can work, but with only 1 bath and an entirely dysfunctional kitchen, the enchantment is at a steep price... until you consider the great upsides of this property :
VIEWS: Out the front door lies a huge surprise that is rare and irreplaceable... a direct view of the Hermosa Beach Pier.
LOT: Lots in East Manhattan Beach, although usually twice this size, are selling at this price all day long, without anything remotely resembling a view. A new build with a second story on this property would have premium Hermosa Hills views.
LOCATION: At the top of the hill, on a quiet dead end street, one block from Pier Avenue, this is a dream Hermosa Hills location.
BUY NOW/BUILD LATER: While the quarters are cozy, they are refinished immaculately. Cedar-lined closets, refinished cabinetry and glistening hardwoods... the list goes on. There is also a great backyard to enjoy for barbecuing or letting the kids play.
Other features include: a dutch-door, arched doorways, coved ceilings and tons of natural light. Original and refinished 3” Douglas Fir hardwood flooring throughout. The all-white kitchen boasts an original 1950 6-Burner O’Keefe & Merritt stove, farmer’s sink and new cabinetry. The eat-in dining room (which could make the perfect office) has a beautiful and refinished built-in buffet. Pristine decorative light fixtures highlight both bedrooms. The clean, white bathroom is an oasis with an over-sized pedestal sink with side ledges, beveled mirrors, original built in storage, subway tile and penny round flooring. The quality of restoration continues with original 2-panel Shaker solid-core pine interior doors with antique chrome-plated glass door knobs and Emtek crystal cabinet knobs throughout.
