There haven’t been too many home sales in Hermosa Beach topping the $10M mark but a recent sale of home located at 2666 The Strand in Hermosa Beach reached a price point reserved for only the most unique and spectacular homes. Oceanfront homes on The Strand come with some steep price tags, but the home at 2666 The Strand broke the record for on market sales as a whopping price tag of $14,800,000. Pricing was unusual with it originally being listed in 2013 for $13.9M, then being raised to $14.2M then $15.9 during it’s 9 months on the market. The home sat on a very unusually shaped lot and when the lot originally sold for $6,000,000 back in 2011 it wasn’t clear that this spec home would yield a profit. Needless to say that wasn’t the case as the market took a dramatic turn north and the builder did a fantastic job of taking full advantage of the unusual lot with over 70 feet of beach frontage.
