Only two blocks from Hermosa Beach, this 4,600-square foot industrial farmhouse is the perfect space for coastal entertaining. The industrial vibe echoes throughout the 4-bed, 7-bath (counting halves) space; it’s in the interior and exterior metal paneling, the floor-to-ceiling square-paned windows, the built-in-cabinets, the custom millwork, the steel-framed furniture, the whitewashed brick fireplace and the black-painted railings and trim.
A 4-stop elevator descends all the way to the 950-square foot basement, which includes a tiered home-theater, a temperature-controlled, floor-to-ceiling wine wall, a granite bar, and a steel and concrete custom-made ping pong table. Or you can take the elevator all the way up to the 250-square foot rooftop deck, with a hot tub, gorgeous ocean views, and a wall-sized glass door that opens to a cozy entertaining nook with a fireplace. (This house totals over 640-square feet of deck space.)
Shiny surfaces, such as bathroom walls and kitchen backsplash of marble and porcelain subway tiles, keep the industrial feeling consistent throughout the home. The master bath has a freestanding tub with clean lines and metal-plated claws feet—a contemporary take on a classic.
The common spaces are full of light, the floors are largely engineered hardwood, and much of the furniture is custom. The walls are covered in natural fabrics, including silk and grasscloth, and the interior shades, textures and patterns are inspired by the various moods of the ocean. Overall, the space is a perfect metaphor for the ocean—fun but powerful, beautiful in both expected and unexpected ways.
“We work with dozens of builders all over the South Bay and LA. White Sands is one of the best. They have an excellent project management team and we are able to work together seamlessly. Highly recommended!”
“The folks at White Sands did a great job for us. We’ve built three homes and this was by far our best experience. We were relaxed during construction because we believed they were looking out for us, and they did. The outcome was terrific. Just what we hoped for. These are a talented group of professionals.”
“The entire company is a pleasure to work with, extremely professional, follow through is A1. Their design team is approachable and listens to the needs of their clients. Great company to work with.”
“I’ve been working in collaboration with the team at White Sands Design Build for the past 2 years, and I have nothing but good news to report. Experienced and organized Project Managers, structured and realistic timelines / budgets, and outstanding inner office support staff.
White Sands is a General Contractor that other Contractors (such as myself) prefer to work with. I’ve referred them plenty of business & plan on continuing to do so moving forward.”
“Casa Blanc is proud to partner with such a great group of people who are always thinking of their clients. It makes my job easier to help them when they are always one step ahead and on top of it!
Thank you for all you do in making all of our lives easier!”
“Great people to work with, all promises kept and delivered on time.”
“White Sands Design/Build always performs professionally with great communication and excellent onsite project management. I’ve worked with many Builders and White Sands is the best. I highly recommend this company for any Construction needs.”
“We moved into a house built by White Sands and love the choices that were made and quality of construction. Brett and his crew have been great in continuing our journey to understand, as well as amend, interior elements. Hawlie designed the interior, revamping from a Hollywood vibe to a contemporary coastal style.
We are really pleased with them on every front. Brett is wonderful at responding in a timely manner with quality solutions. He is straightforward in setting expectations and doesn’t finish any project until you, his client, are happy and satisfied.”
