The three-story residence, designed by architect Robert Thibodeau of du Architects, was completed this year.
A colorful tile entryway leads into the open-plan living and dining room level.
Ten-foot sliding doors in the living room bring in natural light.
The kitchen, with Italian cabinetry and Bosch appliances, has a similar airy feel and opens up to a small deck. The center island with cooktop doubles as a prep area and a breakfast bar. The master bedroom has a third-floor terrace with an ocean view, and the master shower and bathroom are laid with Murano tiles from Italy. Down the hall, one of three small bedrooms also has a terrace.
The rooftop deck offers a panoramic view of the ocean and downtown Hermosa Beach, where bars, shops and cafes are a quick stroll away. Downstairs, a basement with its own outside entrance and bathroom has a bedroom and another room that can be converted into an entertainment room or office.
