Home of the Week: A Modern Classic in North Hermosa Beach

Tasked with juxtaposing a modern aesthetic with the alluring, alluring charm of Hermosa Beach was none other than the late architect and master builder Patrick J. Killen. Recently featured in CA Home & Design and as LA Times’ Home of the Day, the 4 bed/4.5 bath home is primely located only about 500 yards from the sand in the desirable North of Hermosa neighborhood and basks in the glory of its perch on an elevated corner lot. While the first floor is dedicated to housing all three bedrooms and master suite, the second floor plays host to the principal entertaining areas via a floating staircase off the foyer. The property, located at 477 25th Street, is listed with Partners Trust Associate Partner Mark Kitching and offered at $4,995,000.


The proliferation of glass partitions—as seen in this striking, 30-foot stacked stone wall—coupled with an open plan design, creates a compelling story of visual togetherness throughout the 2-story home. An interior bridge walkway ceremoniously connects the kitchen, great room, and dining areas with an additional living room and bar. Sliding doors lead to a sun-soaked terrace offering views of nearby Valley Park.


The streamlined kitchen features custom-designed Calcutta marble and Ann Sacks glass tiles, which were specifically selected to echo the blue and green hues found in the ocean and sky.


In the dining room, floor-to-ceiling glass bays—as well as a clever notch in the wall—allow residents to savor the golden light of sunrises and sunsets dancing off the surrounding hillside. This space effortlessly opens out into the generous great room with fireplace, kitchen, and adjoining terrace.


Open-air terraces on every level, including the rooftop, take full advantage of the home’s elevated perch on a corner lot. A level lawn, three car garage and guest motor court further complement the one-of-a-kind stature of this North Hermosa Beach residence.
