The distinctive custom residence found at 1920 The Strand is situated on one of the finest beachfront lots in Southern California. It is the epitome of fine west coast living built around sweeping views from Catalina Island to the Pacific Palisades! A singular property such as this is in short supply. It is head-turning not only from an aesthetic standpoint β€” the value itself demands attention. Rarely do Strand residences come on the market in such prime condition, in a prime location, and on a prime corner lot! This location simply cannot be easily replicated, and the home’s flawless interiors were intended to withstand shifting trends in design.

The corner lot compliments the home’s commanding architecture as you approach from the walk-street, immediately introducing the ocean as your new next-door neighbor before you reach the impressive double door entryway. Upon entry, you are welcomed to a formal foyer with soaring two-story ceilings and a gold-leaf dome over the stairway that leads the way to the upper entertaining level.

The upper level presents open concept living and entertaining areas that showcase panoramic oceans views from the living room, dining area, kitchen and the study. The designer-perfect living room offers dual decks from which to enjoy taking in endless views of the horizon beyond. The views follow you as you make your way past the open formal dining area to the elegant custom kitchen.

Centered at the heart of the home, the exceptionally functional kitchen is finished with premium cabinet-faced appliances, brass hardware details, Carrara quartz countertops and Waterstone faucets in soft gold. A polished waterjet Claridges Thassos backsplash by Artistic Tile is highlighted by intricate bands of luminous natural white rivershell ribbons, inspired by the door frames at the luxurious Claridges Hotel in London. No detail has gone untouched, down to the French mullioned skylights that flood the home with soft, natural light.Β
