Fronting the Strand north of the Hermosa Beach Pier, this pink-hued Italian villa captures the essence of coastal living on a grand scale.

The three-story home’s extravagance begins at the entrance. Custom copper doors close with a vacuum seal upon entry; artful mosaic tile and ornate ceiling details add embellishment to a dramatic foyer. A spiral staircase and retractable 16-foot skylight provide access to a rooftop deck overlooking the coastline and sand.
