What’s the Difference Between North and South Redondo Beach?

By Keith Kyle

When most buyers come to me they know that they’re interested in Redondo Beach, but don’t know much about the various parts and the differences in the neighborhoods.  While there are a number of different neighborhoods and real estate “areas” the big distinction is between North Redondo and South Redondo.

So what’s the difference?

The physical dividing line between the two is 190th Street and Anita, but in reality the differences are much more than just the separation of the street.  The “feel” of North Redondo and South Redondo are the most significant difference.  North Redondo sits east of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach with no beach to call it’s own, while South Redondo has the prototypical “beach” feel and incorporates the areas of King Harbor, Redondo Beach, the Redondo pier and the beachfront street of the Esplanade.

North-South-Redondo-Beach-MapBoth north Redondo and South Redondo have a variety of housing options ranging from condos to mansions and everything in between, but when people often think of “Redondo Beach” they think of oceanfront and oceanview homes and those are only found in South Redondo.

The tradeoff is home prices and values.  In general, homes in South Redondo are more expensive and more valuable than similar homes in North Redondo, and it’s really all about the proximity to the beach, and the “beach” feel. While condos are a bit rarer in North Redondo, home prices generally start in the mid $500,000 for a smaller condo or townhome up to well over $1,500,000 for a larger home on a larger lot.  Home values can start in the mid $300,000 for a condo in Brookside Village and can reach to over $10,000,000 (which is very rare) for one of the few oceanfront estate style homes on the Esplanade.

A Number of Condos Listings Hit the Market in Seascape One Redondo Beach

By Keith KyleSeascape-1-Pool

There’s been a definite lack of inventory in the world of ocean view and ocean front condos in Redondo Beach over the past 18 months.  Prices have risen dramatically as inventory dipped to record lows and demand for the “vacation” style feel of complexes such as the Seascape buildings, The Village and condos on the Esplanade have continued to grow.  At least in one complex there’s been a higher than usual Seascape One Redondo Ocean View Condosnumber of homes coming on the market in recent days.  Seascape One is located in the 200 block buildings of The Village (which is unusual in itself as it’s actually on Catalina).  As of July 18th there are 3 units for sale in Seascape One.  Of the 3 2 offer a interior garden view (this is the only Seascape or Village building offering interior facing units) and one offers some pretty significant ocean and harbor views.  Built in 1978 the condos are fairly ideally located just behind King Harbor and walkable to the pier, the beach, and the shops and restaurants of the King Harbor area.

Where Have all the Ocean Front and Ocean View Condos Gone?

Although the housing inventory has been low in Redondo Beach for almost 2 years now, the market for oceanfrontRedondo Beach condos for sale Esplanade and ocean view Village condos is almost non-existent. Popular condo complexes such as The Village, the Seascape buildings, and various oceanfront buildings on the Esplanade are nowhere near the normal inventory levels. According to realtor Keith Kyle, “It’s really been months since there’s been anything new. There are currently a few places that have been on the market for some time now, but the few new listings, if priced anywhere near where they should be, disappear quickly.”

“These homes offer the iconic South Bay beach lifestyle and are are highly sought after, often by professionals that travel extensively, local retired or semi-retired people looking for that vacation beach feel, or those priced out of nearby townhomes and single family homes.”

Seascape-1-PoolThe inventory has continued to drop to nearly a trickle with only 2 condos on the market as of this writing.  Both are in the Seascape buildings behind King Harbor and the Redondo Pier area.  The homes often offer the real feel of living on vacation as many have great views and some offer terrific amenities.

This is South Bay living at it’s finest.

View current oceanview condos for sale

Redondo Beach offers a wider variety of options than neighboring Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach as it’s zoned to allow higher density housing in some areas…..meaning larger condo complexes. Some of the most ideal complexes are located in South Redondo Beach just off of Catalina and are known as the Village or Seascapes I, II and III. All of the Seascape Buildings are also known as the Village (they’re actually all on Catalina but the addresses are on The Village) All of the complexes have Homeowners Associations with HOA dues to cover the various landscaping, pools and some insurance. If you’re looking for an affordable way to have a beach home, they may be ideal for you. All of these complexes offer some fantastic ocean, and harbor views and are centrally located just a short walk or bike ride to the beach, marina, restaurants and shops and parks. Keep in mind that some of my comments are just opinions on what is both good and bad about the buildings based on my observations and feedback from my clients.

The Village Townhomes and Condos (610-688 The Village)

The Village in Redondo Beach Harbor views from The Village Fitness-Center
The Village in South Redondo Beach may just be the most affordable way of living near the water in the South Bay. The Village condominiums and townhomes feature 323 well maintained units including studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom condos along with a few townhome style homes at the southern end of the property. The Village offers resort style living and includes two beautiful pool and spa areas (one is for owners only, the other is owned by Ocean Club rental units but fully usable by the owners in The Village) a state of the art fitness center (again part of the Ocean Club but free access is provided to owners) several bbq areas, walk paths, access to the Redondo pier area and more. Most units have ocean views, ocean breezes and are a wonderful place to call home…or a second home.

Seascape I (210-250 The Village)

Seascape-1 Seascape-1-Exterior Seascape-1-Pool

Seascape One is actually located between Seascapes II and III and consists of 210-250 The Village. It was built in 1978 and is just east of King Harbor and the Redondo Beach pier. Many of the units have fairly unique windows that allow for plenty of light and breezes. The smallest units are 1 bedroom 1 bath with around 577 square feet with the largest units being 2 bedroom 2 bath with just over 1600 feet. Values depend primarily on the location and view as well as the upgrades that the owners have done over time.

Pros: Location, location, location. Seascape I is central to everything and you truly don’t have to get in the car on the weekends. It’s directly adjacent to the marina and the Redondo Beach pier and has a large grassy park just outside your door. Some of the units are very nicely remodeled and some have tremendous ocean views (although those unblocked view units rarely come on the market. This is an affordable way to live by the beach or use a rental unit. See additional pictures of an ocean view unit at 240 The Village.

Cons: The complex is a little maze like and finding your way around isn’t always simple. The complex also has shared laundry with a laundry room near the elevator on every floor. Another negative is that there seems to continually be an assessment in addition to the HOA dues and currently all of the planters and ponds have been undergoing continual work. Unlike Seacapes Two and Three the complex is not gated (although the parking is)  View current oceanview condos for sale

Seascape II (110 – 160 The Village)

Top-Deck-Umbrella-small Livingrom-View-small Seascape 2 Pool

Seascape 2 was built in 1980 and looks a bit more modern than Seascape I. The units are much larger with the smallest one bedrooms just a bit over 900 square feet and the largest condos having 2 bedrooms plus a very good sized loft (with an additional balcony) and just at 1900 square feet. Seascape 2 consists of the buildings with 100-160 The Village addresses and is the furthest north of the oceanfront/oceanview buildings. The complex has a very nice pool area and is walkable to just about everything imaginable. Seascape 2 also has some townhome units with larger square footage and attached garages. Many/most of the units have been extensively remodeled and many have stunning ocean and harbor views.

Pros:Again the location is excellent with shops, restaurants, gyms and the beach just a stroll away. The complex has a very nice vacation like feel to it and is ideal for those looking for a beach home, second home or just wanting a primary residence at the beach….without the price tag of many other oceanview properties.

Cons:There are often assessments and the monthly HOA is fairly high and currently start around the mid $400s as of this article. It’s a fairly large complex and often a bit confusing to find your way around. Although the views can be stunning some of the units are a bit further back with a service road and a few buildings in front of the views of some of the lower units.

Seascape III (510-540 The Village)

  Seascape-3-Pool

Built in 1980 Seascape III feels very similar to Seascape II with a slightly more “vacation” type feel. The condos are fairly large with the smallest 1458 square feet and the largest being the penthouse 2 bedroom with an ocean view loft and separate patio with slightly over 2000 square feet.

This is the furthest south of the Seascape buildings but still walkable to everything.

Pros: Again the location is just ideal and the complex has a great second home or vacation feel. Higher floor units have some tremendous views and many have been very nicely upgraded. As with all of the Esplanade and Village buildings, prices have come down considerably as they have had a very high second home ownership in the past and have suffered quite a bit with some foreclosures and short sales forcing prices down which makes for an ideal environment for buyers

Cons: As with all of the Seascape buildings the HOA is quite high and the age of the buildings, coupled with their environment of sun and salt air, often make for additional assessments. HOA is also fairly restrictive as to what can be done to the units, but this can also be considered a positive for many.  View current oceanview condos for sale

What’s the difference between North and South Redondo Beach?

By Keith KyleThe Village in Redondo Beach

Redondo Beach is a wonderful city in the South Bay offering housing options for just about every buyer.  The city is a rather odd shape and is squeezed in between Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Lawndale, Hawthorne and Torrance.   Unlike some of it’s neighbors the zoning in Redondo Beach has allowed for far more styles and types of homes ranging from large condo complexes, retirement communities, 2 on a lot and 3 on a lot townhomes, and single family homes.

From a real estate standpoint the city of Redondo Beach is broken into two distinct areas…..North Redondo and South Redondo.  Each has a very different feel and a fairly different price range. The general dividing line is generally at 19oth Street.

So what’s the difference?

The primary difference is the location and the “feel” the areas have due to that location.

North Redondo real estate map North Redondo is landlocked between Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Hawthorne, Lawndale and Torrance.  The area , with the zip code of 90278, has some great housing options that are generally priced lower than South Redondo beach but none of the neighborhoods have much of a coastal feel and none of the areas offer any type of ocean views.  One of the most prevalent types of homes in North Redondo are townhomes but may not be what many think of when they think of endless rows of identical homes.  The main types of townhomes in Redondo are known as 2 on a lot and 3 on a lot townhomes.  The entire “complex” consists of 2 or 3 units and many, especially when detached, feel like single family homes. Some of the more notable neighborhoods are the Golden Hills which lies just east of Hermosa and offers primarily single family homes with square footage around 1800 feet. The other area consisting of primarily single family homes in on the eastern border and known as the TRW tract.  Throughout North Redondo there is a mix of types and styles and prices generally range from the low $500Ks to over $1,000,000.   Visit the North Redondo listings page to see the current homes for sale in this part of Redondo Beach.

South Redondo sits on some pristine coastline and has a much “beachier” feel.  Due to zoning this part of town has some very South Redondo Beach Real Estate Maplarge condo complexes, especially along the water.  South Redondo with the zip code of 90277, offers numerous two on a lot townhomes (3 on a lot townhomes are more rare in this part of town), condo complexes and single family homes.  Some of the more well known buildings are the Seascape condos near King Harbor, the various oceanfront buildings of the Esplanade, The Village, and Brookside Village.  Prices range dramatically due to the factors of proximity to the beach and the ocean views but is consistently higher priced than North Redondo.  In addition to the beach, this part of town offers an abundance of activities and sites from King Harbor and the Redondo Pier, to Riviera Village, Seaside Lagoon, Wilderness Park and more.  The schools are great in both areas.

As mentioned, prices range higher than in the North Redondo area.  To see the current homes for sale in South Redondo visit our South Redondo real estate information page.

 

 

Coastal Charm in South Redondo Beach

By Keith KyleKing Harbor and Redondo Beach Pier views from the Esplanade condos

Located along some of Southern California’s finest beaches, South Redondo Beach has something to offer everyone. Redondo is generally comprised of two main areas known as South and North Redondo. Each area has a very different feel with South Redondo having more of a beach atmosphere due to it’s location and the fact that it’s bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean. Bordered by the Palos Verdes Peninsula to the south, North Redondo to the north, and Torrance to the east, South Redondo Beach offers great schools, proximity to the beach, and an abundance of activities.
