Few private oceanfront communities in Southern California occupy as scenic a locale as The Strand. Overlooking one of California’s most beautiful beaches and anchored by the landmark Headlands promontory, The Strand is fast developing into the most desirable oceanfront enclave on this coast. Years in the making, this recently completed residence offers the uncommon chance to live on the beach without sacrificing the amenities, comforts, or security of a proper home–rarely a feature of oceanfront properties in Southern California. The living and entertaining opportunities that this residence affords also are unparalleled among oceanfront homes to have been offered for sale in recent years.
The most enviably sited and elevated parcel in this enclave, 53 Strand Beach Drive enjoys numerous and varied vistas of the Pacific, islands, and sunsets. Comfortable interior spaces open seamlessly to loggias, broad terraces, and Mediterranean-style gardens overlooking the ocean. At night, the view of coastline and city lights is dazzling–stretching north to Palos Verdes–and gentle breezes reinforce the relaxing allure of the setting.
The defining features of Italianate architecture have been artfully blended with an informal plan to create a home that is both grand and substantial, as well as warm and inviting. The impressive three-story residence is built around an atrium courtyard awash in sunlight–optimizing privacy, light, and ventilation. An ever-present relationship to the ocean is experienced in every significant room, and the combination of expertly arranged and appointed, interior and exterior spaces makes living here a delight.
