WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE HOME
Pure Hermosa Soul A handspun, Craftsman-inspired home on a mellow walk street embodies the best of classic South Bay This Modern Eclectic home heavy with Craftsman influences is a stone?s throw from the sand on one of Hermosa?s most coveted walk streets. The home?s exterior, tall and slender and clad in redwood, with two green-patina pipes extending from its roofline, is eye-catching all right; but then you open the door and step into a warm, textured atmosphere?one of mellow woods, meticulously handspun details and a three-story floor plan of pure geometry, with angular, open floors stretching upward. ?Nothing came stock from anywhere,? says Susan. Among the standout details are hearty lodge fireplaces, brick-wall features constructed of salvaged bricks from the Lincoln Building, a now-extinct wing of Redondo Union High School. Select rooms are constructed from architectural-grade Clear redwood. There are big wood beams with exposed fasteners stretched across the ceiling. Nearly every door is handmade and fitted with handrails constructed from copper pipes, hand-distressed to a green patina by John. The home?s Arts & Craft lighting is from Arroyo Craftsman, a firm that reproduces fixtures found in some of the movement?s most famous homes, including those designed by Southern California?s famed Greene brothers. Of note is the bounty of slender windows that bring in soft light throughout the day, and the home?s spacious patio and decks, situated to make the most of the shifting sunlight. The home speaks to you through the warmth of the wood, the openness of the public spaces and the high-vaulted ceilings, It wraps itself around a quality of life.
