440 Ortiz Avenue - A & B, Sand City, CA
Featured in Architectural Digest and Dwell Magazine, this Jerry Lomax mixed-use residential and commercial complex’s striking industrial-chic design has been an iconic sight in Sand City since its construction in 2004. A bold, modernist statement with walls of glass, corrugated steel, and saw-cut concrete, the building’s two-story residence sits above an expansive commercial space below that has hosted sophisticated art events, extravagant car shows, and currently functions as a theater and gym with full bathroom. As you enter the front door, 20-foot high glass walls face north, providing perfect sun control and privacy. The main floor’s indoor-outdoor open living space flows effortlessly between the custom Bulthaup-style kitchen, dining room, guest suite, and office, separated by a fireplace and the signature minimalistic yet functional storage space that Lomax is so adept in creating. The mezzanine master suite has a spa-like feel featuring a fireplace, soaking tub, and a spacious closet with built-in laundry and sink. Lomax’s partnership with artist Gregory Hawthorne and Bill McLeod, who constructed the famed Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, helped create the unassumingly elegant box’s quality. With two terraces on the main floor and rooftop access with sweeping ocean views, there is plenty of room for entertaining guests or hosting family gatherings. Just minutes from all the outdoor activities and world-class dining and shopping the Monterey Peninsula has to offer, this modernist masterpiece is ready for its new owner to enjoy.
