The Avenues of South Redondo a Hot Market

By Keith Kyle

We usually see a home or two on “The Avenues” hit the market each month, but in the past 2 days we’ve seen 4 new and fairly exciting listings hit the market.  The Avenues is the area towards the most southern part of Redondo Beach before the Hollywood Riviera in which the streets all have letter names….Avenue A, B, C….These streets have a very unique and “beachy” feel to them as you can often see the ocean, they are mostly original looking bungalow style homes, are a short walk to the beach and the Esplanade, and they are very close to the Riviera Village shopping area.

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.

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.

Some highlights include ocean activities and dining at King Harbor, great shopping in the Riviera Village, the Redondo Beach pier, and nature walks at Wilderness Park.

Ahhh…..The Avenues of Redondo Beach

By Keith Kyle

Classic beach town feel in the Avenues of South Redondo Beach

The Avenues In Redondo Beach

If you’re looking for beach charm and proximity to the beach, the Avenues in South Redondo Beach may be just what you’re looking for. The Avenues are the lettered in South Redondo Beach that are basically bordered by Knob Hill to the north, Esplanade to the west, Prospect to the east and PCH to the South. Many of the homes are original beach bungalows built in the later 1940’s and early 1950’s and the streets have that great old school beach feel. The areas west of PCH are flat streets with the ocean sitting at the end while homes east of PCH sit on hills and dunes and often offer some great views.  What make the neighborhoods so great is that they feel like something from the past.  Although many of the original homes have been torn down and replaced by much larger homes, the area still has a beach feel and a very different sense than similar areas in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach.  It doesn’t hurt to see the sparkling ocean at the end of each street.  Rare is the home that is priced below $1,000,000 and depending on views, age, and proximity to the beach, homes generally range from just over $1.0M to the mid $2.0M price point.
