The listing agent advertises this South Redondo Beach Townhome located at 204 N Irena Ave Unit A as Mediterannean but it looks more Spanish to me. Here's the MLS description:
"On a beautiful tree lined street, this fully detached front unit has the presence of a Mediterranean Villa... in the heart of south Redondo Beach. Upon entering through the old world arched doorway, the curved stairway winds it's way upstairs. The reverse floor plan lends itself to soaring vaulted ceilings, lots of light, and easy family living. This beautiful home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths plus so much more. Upstairs, the romantic master suite is complete with fireplace, walk-in closet, deck, and huge bathroom with spa type tub. Also upstairs are the living areas: living room with fireplace, huge gourmet kitchen with double ovens and long stretches of gorgeous granite counter space, formal dining room, powder room, and huge west facing deck...perfect for BBQ, al fresco dining, and watching the sunset. Downstairs are 2 more bedrooms, one currently used as an office, full bath, and laundry room. A creative architect planned for tons of storage at both ends of the staircase, attic, and 2-car attached garage. Dramatic and spacious, with beautiful details and finishes."
This deatched towhouse was built in 2003 and is 2090 sq ft. Priced at $929,000 it seems like a good deal to me. It is a relocation with a relo company so there may be some extra paperwork but nothing that should keep you away from this one. Listing Broker is RE/MAX Estate Properties.
I think that one of the best South Redondo Beach investments right now is in MLS Area 155 located East of PCh, North of Torrance Blvd and South of 190th St. With the proposed improvements along the Redondo Beach waterfront and Pier and the possible change of the skyline if there are any changes to the power plant this area should only increase in price and even outperform other Redondo Beach neighborhoods over the next 3-5 years. I find Townhomes like these in this neighborhood to be great alternatives to let's say North Redondo Beach Golden Hills Tall and Skinny SFRs (which I love also).
With the recent escalation in prices of North Redondo Beach detached townhomes and Tall and Skinny SFRs in the Golden Hills neighborhood, it may be a good time to take a look again at some deatched townhouses in South Redondo Beach. There's one thing that South Redondo offers that you will never find in 90278: Ocean Views.
A good example of what I'm talking about is the new detached townhouse listing at 523 N Juanita Unit A in South Redondo Baech.
"The landscaped yard sets the tone as you walk through the new front door.The travertine floors lead to a tranquil bedroom.A full bath featuring travertine in the shower and granite is across the hall along with a spacious 2nd bedroom.The garage has been updated w/epoxy flooring and built-in storage.Walk up the winding hardwood staircase.Your breath catches as you notice the glass doors that lead to a patio overlooking the front yard w/views of the mountains.The living room features a wood-burning fireplace.Past the dining area is your dream kitchen.Recessed lighting, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and white cabinets.Enjoy your morning at the breakfast bar while south-facing light pours through the windows.Down the hall is a powder room w/an aged bronze faucet on the pedestal sink.Discover a true master suite.Vaulted ceilings w/exposed beams lead you to the private master deck under an arched window.Enjoy the fireplace from the 6 jet-tub and the frameless shower wrapped in travertine with dual nozzles and double sinks. The fireplace can also be enjoyed from inside the master.The walk-in closet is absolutely huge.Outside the dining room is a third patio that has a staircase leading to a spectacular rooftop deck with panoramic ocean views."
There's just not as much new construction going on in South Redondo 90277 as in 90278 North Redondo Beach. Not exactly sure why, but if I was to speculate it may be that the land is just harder to come by for builders. Or something else. That's why I'm always so happy to see new building listings when they hit the market. This new construction 5 bedroom Single Family House just built at 527 N Guadalupe is amazing. It is listed in the MLS for $1,599,000.
"Elegant 5 bedroom, 4 bath with huge Bonus room. Luxurious Mediterranean Style. Brand new construction. Stunning home with great ocean views. offers great curb appeal. Spacious floor plan with 3700 sq ft of living area, gorgeous family room with fireplace. Beautiful wrought iron staircase. gourmet kitchen with top of the line Viking appliances , custom cabinets and plenty of storage space. Luxurious master suite is wonderfully designed. incredible entertaining rear yard. Two car garage. Desirable location on one of the best blocks close to beach, restaurants and shopping. don't miss this beautifully designed specious home!"
I've been saying for quite a while that the tonwhouse units at Village Palos Verdes in the Hollywood Riviera are highly desirable and most likely great investments over the long haul. Yes, I know the complex has had issues in the past and the HOA dues are about $450 a month but right now the townhomes are the best value with views you'll find in the South Bay and within walking distance to both Riviera Village, The Esplanade and a great beach (for those of us who love the beach).
So, just a few days ago I was writing about the townhouse listed at 464 Palos Verdes Blvd. That 3 bedroom end unit was listed for $799K and was in escrow in less than a week. Nice!
Now comes 450 Palos Verdes Blvd which is a smaller 3 bedroom but listed at only $725K. This is one of my favorite floorplans in the complex with "walls of glass" (sort of) facing west and an open contemporary floor plan plus the obligatory wood ceilings in the master bedroom. As of this writing it has been on the market for only 4 days. I would not recommend waiting. Here today and gone tomorrow. I hope you get it!
"Welcome to Magnífica Finca. This Santa Barbara Mission Style Home is a Tribute to the Luxury Estates of Montecito. Custom built by C & C Partners, this magnificent estate pays homage to luxury and style. Perfectly positioned on a 12,664 sq ft, Cul de Sac FLAT LOT, the 5,400 sq ft main residence features five bedrooms (one is used as a private office, 5.5 bathrooms, enormous master suite with retreat area, fireplace and a spa inspired bath with steam shower and heated floors, the living areas feature Spanish tile and hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, elegant semi circular staircase, chef's kitchen with granite counters, custom cabinetry, double Sub-Zero refrigerator, stainless steel appliances, 1,300 bottle wine cellar, sports bar with indoor/outdoor seating area and large open great room with dual sided stone fireplace and direct access to your private oasis. The backyard features a full size solar heated salt water pool with light and water features, eight person hot tub, outdoor kitchen, intermittent stone and grass walk ways and a fabulous 600sq ft guest house. This home can only be shown by private appointment."
If you've been in the market for a South Redondo Beach townhouse within walking distance to RIviera Village, here's 2 new listings that you might want to buy.
464 Palos Verdes Blvd in the Village Palos Verdes complex (one of my favorite in the area) features spectacular ocean views (pictured). Here's what the listing agent states in the MLS:
"Best views in the complex from almost every room! Beautifully updated end unit 3 bed + 2.5ba with den + bonus room that could be 4th bdrm/media. Spacious open living room has ocean views, stunning Acacia hardwood floors, & travertine fireplace. Gorgeous Kit has granite counters & stainless steel appliances, opens to family room/den area with walk-in pantry. Master suite with vaulted ceiling, 180 degree ocean & city views, recessed lighting, hdwd floors, walk-in closet & remodeled bath. 2 bright bedrooms w/hardwood floors plus remodeled bath. Downstairs bonus room could be used as guest room, media room etc & opens to it's own private patio w/ocean views. 2 more decks upstairs w/ocean views! This resort style complex was renovated in 2011 with new roof, exterior siding, garages, balconies, windows, landscaping & new entry ways. Amenities include 2 Ocean view pools w/spas + guest pkg. Close to beach, bike path & Rivera Village's restaurants & shops."
With 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 1905 sq ft, this townhome is listed at basically North Redondo prices in South Redondo Beach with the ocean views thrown in for free. I wouldn;t think about this for too long. $799,000. MLS 14741419.
If you are on a tighter budget but still want that walk to Riviera Village location, there's a great complex at 5924 S Pacific Coast Highway: Vista Del Parque. Don't be fooled by the address. I've sold there and it is far quieter than you might think. Unit # 25 is large 2 bedroom, 2 bath that is 1418 sq ft. Listing Broker is John Aaroe. Price is $538,800. MLS 14741611.
"Spacious townhome with direct entrance. Pedestrian lifestyle moments from restaurants, shopping, trendy storefronts, park and more. Tucked off PCH backed to residential hillside views. Update to your taste and enjoy CA living by the beach. One of the larger units in the complex over 1400 SF with 3 bd/2 ba (public record shows 2 bd, buyer to verify and satisfy). Vaulted ceilings, multiple balconies and front patio. Interior laundry room. Complex includes a rec room, gym, patio with bbq and spa. Near by park has tennis and basketball courts. Subterranean parking with side-by-side parking. Guest parking directly in front of unit."
How much do homes sell for in Redondo Beach CA? Well that depends on whether you are thinking of buying in North or South Redondo Beach, what you are thinking of buying, how old the property is and in what condition and a variety of other factors. In general, consider $400K the entry point and $650,000-$850,000 the "sweet spot" with the greatest value and number of choices. While you can spend over $1M for a home in some Redondo Beach neighborhoods, for the most part there is a lot to choose from under $1 million. And if you go over $1M in Redondo Beach, you'll love what you can buy. (Mouse over any of the house icons above to view prices. Click to go to Socalistings.)
Therefore, most homes in Redondo Beach are less expensive than what you will find in Hermosa Beach and definitely more affordable than Manhattan Beach CA. Historically, Redondo Beach has been the least expensive of the Beach Cities. In the opinion of this writer, Redondo Beach offers some of the best coastal home values in LA County. In my Real Estate practice, I often work with buyers relocating either from the Westside or other parts of the country to Redondo Beach for the affordability, lifestyle, schools, and proximity to freeways, beaches, restaurants and other amenities.
Inventory of available housing for sale in Redondo Beach CA 90277-90278 has been low over the past 18 months and prices have increased, often substantially. Whether you are buying or selling Redondo Beach real estate it is imperative to work with a well connected local real estate agent who can best advise you as to the local market.
The least expensive homes in Redondo Beach are either relatively small condos or properties at the borders, ie Redondo Beach mailing address but in actuality Torrance (which isn't necessarily a bad thing either).
If you are looking to buy a small condo on a budget, you will most likely look at either Brookside Village or "The Village" in South Redondo Beach 90277. These are two entirely different complexes with "The Village" located just north of the Redondo Beach Pier at the ocean and Brookside Village further inland at the intersection of Prospect and Camino Real. Most of these units are flat "condo" style properties although both complexes do feature townhome style units as well.
These are great first time buyer properties and many have been retained as rental units after the owners move on to other homes. That not only makes these two complexes great affordable housing today, they are also great investment properties for the future.
Brookside Village (map right) is a massive sprawling complex with 385 units spread over 32 buildings. There are 2 tennis courts and 2 pools and the grounds have lush landscaping, fountains, and winding brooks, hence the name.
You can most likely find a 1 bedroom 1 bath unit, approximately 700 sq ft in the low to mid $300's. For a 2 bedroom units you are are more likely to pay over $400K. Add in HOA dues to that of about $400 month.
At "The Village" (pictured top) aka "The Village Condominiums and Townhomes" you can also find one bedroom condos in the $400K range and you will most likely have some ocean view or at least an ocean peak. Two bedroom units have recently sold for mid $500's and new listings of remodeled units are closer to $600K. Depending on which building you may be buying a condo in, HOA dues can be as high as $500 in some instances.
In North Redondo Beach 90278 you can still find 2 bedroom townhouse style condo units 900-1400 sq ft around $500K +/-. If you move to the mid $5's there are some smaller 3 bedrooms available. Many of these might back up to the power lines that run throughout MLS Area 151-152 or be on busier streets such as Grant or in the 2700 block and closer to Inglewood Ave. (Please note - there are also some 55+ age restricted building that may show up in lower price ranges.)
What you will almost certainly find is that many of the smaller units in North Redondo Beach are in larger complexes and they may have higher HOA dues (approximately $350 in some instances) than some of the larger and more expensive units we'll discuss below.At today's currently low interest rates, you can buy a lot more home for an extra $350 per month payment if you qualify.
One of the most common property types in North Redondo Beach is the 3 on a lot attached townhouse (pictured right). These are most commonly found on 7500 square foot (50*150) R-3 lots. There are probably about 1000 of these townhouses units throughout 90278 and the annual turnover is fairly high. While most of them are located in MLS Area 152 - VIllas South (of Artesia Blvd), you will find some in MLS Area 151 as well. North of Artesia Blvd they are located primarily east of Rindge Ave or on Mathews. (I have also seen a few of these in South Redondo Beach but there are far fewer.)
Three on a lot townhomes come in both 3 and 4 bedroom floorplans and can be anywhere from about 1500 sq ft up to slightly over 2000 sq ft for the newest 4 bedroom units. Expect to pay between $650-$750K for newer (post 1999) "A" or "C" units (front or rear) and slightly less for the middle or "B" units. The middle units tend to sell for a little bit less because they have 2 common walls and no yard.
Most of the newer projects have "exclusive use" front and rear yards. I have seen some older 3 on a lots where the rear yard is not designated as exclusive use. FYI, if you are buying a rear unit property please note that the "extra" parking space typically found near the rear unit is designated as a "guest" spot and is not meant for the exclusive use of the rear unit. Depending on the neighbors that rule may or may not be enforced.
Many of these 3 on a lots have "inactive" HOAs. That means that there are no formal meetings or monthly dues. What many homeowners do is simply split the bills as they come in (insurance, gardening, maintenance, etc.) If you are buying, my advice is to make sure that your lender understands and can accommodate this. Inactive HOAs are great as long as you have good neighbors and you do not need to make any major repairs (roof, common area). Some of the older units may not have water metered separately. Most will have individual trash cans but some will have the older "dumpster" style. Those are other considerations to take into account.
While some of these units were one off projects from builders who have long since come and gone, many were built by more known entities such as Casner and Powers (the two best in my opinion), Anastasi and Rich V.R. Some of the current active builders right now are being marketed by Merit Real Estate (Amir Amiri) and these are extremely well built with a very high grade finish work (pictured right).
What I am hearing from my builder associates is that there are very few R-3 lots left to develop. For my money, that makes most of these townhomes excellent investments because we probably will not be seeing many more new projects. As it currently stands, 3 on a lots are already some of the best deals in the Beach Cities.
I mentioned that 3 on a lot townhomes are available in 3 or 4 bedroom configurations. Probably over 90% of these units are "reverse flooplan" with the living room, dining, room, kitchen and master bedroom upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs. The 4 bedroom foorplan places a second bedroom upstairs and may or may not have a full second bathroom as well. There are a few "standard" floorplan 3 on a lot townhomes mostly found in MLS Area 152 and right around Perry Park. these were built by AGAR and have great upstairs space in the 'A" and "B" units but most buyers tend to find the downstairs somewhat cramped.
The other variation in 3 on a lot townhomes is whether the driveway is shared or there is direct access to the garage. The units on the East-West Streets have shared driveways (most common) while the North-South streets such as Felton, Phelan, Perkins, have direct access driveways.
We're just getting started in this series which will continue with further posts covering North vs South price comparisons and amenities, 2 on a lot attached and detached townhomes, the neighborhoods of Golden Hills and Hollywood Riviera, and Single Family Homes for Sale.
If you are in the market to buy a home in South Redondo Beach CA 90277, there are 16 open houses to see this Sunday February 16th 2014. Considering that there are only 48 homes for sale in the MLS in 90277 right now, that's pretty good availability for you to view. There's alos a good cross section of everything on the market ranging from the low $400's for a condo in Brookside Village and going to over $2M for a SFR on "The Avenues". Here's the list followed by some of my favorite picks.
431 Via Mesa Grande, Redondo Beach CA 90277: SFR in the Hollywood Riviera just listed. Here's what the listing agent says:
"This beautiful Queen's necklace view home in the Hollywood Riviera is a special estate. The sunny large corner lot is perched high above the neighborhood homes and boasts amazing ocean views from three levels. You can see the white water, the Hollywood sign and Eucalyptus trees from three decks and a large gated backyard. This home has been tastefully remodelled from top to bottom with gorgeous hardwood floors, crown moulding, fresh paint and new fixtures throughout. Stainless steel appliances and granite countertops are featured in the Kitchen which opens to a grand Living Room with tall coffered ceilings accentuated by a large wood burning fireplace. There is also a large ocean view Family Room that has a second wood burning fireplace and gorgeous hardwood floors. The Master Retreat is on its own private floor and is an unbelievable space with a seating area, an office space, a separate laundry room and a huge walk-in closet with organizers and an in-wall safe. The 3 bedrooms on the main level all have stunning hardwood floors. All 3 full bathrooms include jacuzzi tubs and have recently been remodeled. This home has many extras including two forced air heating zones, two laundry areas, a tankless water heater, and a large entertainment room."
If you are new to the area and not familiar with what we mean by Hollywood Riviera, Queen's Necklace etc, well a video is worth how many words?
Also in the Hollywood Riviera is a 2 bedroom condo at 163 Paseo de la Concha. It has been on the market for a while and was just reduced to $545,000. Considering the location I'm surprised it hasn't found a buyer looking for an alternative to "The Village". Here's what the listing agent states in the MLS:
"If you have been waiting for that perfect 2br starter unit in the "Hollywood Riviera" Redondo Beach Village area, stop by soon and say hello! This is a truly beautiful unit, recently updated and ready to move in! First floor for easy access. Spend your holiday in your condo at the beach! Yes this is a 2 Br / 2 ba unit. Quite building in a great neighborhood. Easy to show. Buyers will enjoy the quiet building and perfect location. walking distance to the Village, Shopping, Trader Joes and the ocean beach path!" MLS 13723083.
222 N Prospect Ave Unit A, Redondo Beach CA, 90277. Prospect is often a tough sell because it isa major North-South street with a lot of traffic. But if you can get a lot of space and an ocean view at an affordable price, it may well be worth the investment.
"Beautifully upgraded townhouse with an ocean view to match! This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom stunner is move in ready, great for professionals, roommates, family and entertaining. The property boasts 3 stories of high end finishes, maple hardwood floors, recessed lighting and a roof top deck with ocean view.
