Five homes are featured in Sophisticated Snoop, the 46th annual home tour presented by the American Martyrs Parent Association, which takes place May 17, 18 and 19.

There's one Hermosa Beach home on the tour this year. The eclectic, Contemporary on Power Street is owned by a Hilary and Erin Condren.

Hilary, a restauranteur, and Erin, founder of Erin Condren Design, purchased the home in 2001. The couple said they did some renovations around five years ago.

The home has an outdoor kitchen, wood burning pizza oven, multiple indoor/outdoor bars, fire pits, pool and jacuzzi, a bocce ball court, farm-to-table garden, fruit trees, and a “sunken sofa pit,” which is one of several lounge areas.

“It's truly built for entertainment,” said Hilary, who took over The Bottle Inn in Hermosa Beach with other owners in 2017.

The Condren's also expanded the number of bedrooms to five in the home, which helps when they have two sets of 17-year old Mira Costa juniors under one roof.

They have twins, Kate and Finn, but they also adopted their classmates Chris and Josh Wood, American Martyrs graduates, who lost both of their parents.

“Thank goodness we expanded ... it's made a beautiful communion that much easier,” Hilary said.

The four other homes, all located in Manhattan Beach, feature a “beautifully built Colonial home,” a “coastal showpiece” at the top of Sand Dune Park, a “classic coastal home,” and a “East meets West Coast home.”

The tour is May 17, 18 and 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Pre-sale tickets cost $30 and at the door $35.
