44 The Strand (5br/3ba, 2317 sqft.)
In the year 1906 Hermosa Beach's first election for city officers was held. In 1907 the city received its Charter from the state of California and it was also in this year that 44 Strand came to life. If these walls could speak they would tell the story of seven generations of family who have lived in this home. Its occupants served as city attorney, municipal judge and owner/director of the Sand Castle Pre-School. Though the city landscape around it has a vastly different look, this home still lies directly in front of the boundless Pacific Ocean. The opportunity for a new owner to carry on the legacy of 44 Strand is now available. Nestled between the Hermosa Beach Pier and the Redondo Beach Marina, with 45' of ocean frontage, its distinction and caliber can only be truly appreciated in person. Currently used as rental property, this South Hermosa Beach duplex (zoned R3) offers its new investor a lot & a half upon which to build your dream home, option to build two units or the opportunity to remodel the existing property and manage rentals along The Strand - where units command the highest rental rates in the South Bay.
