Multiple Homes for Sale on Camino De Encanto in the Hollywood Riviera

By Keith Kyle

It’s not often that we see homes come on the market in the lower Hollywood Riviera neighborhood that’s west of Palos Verdes Blvd.  Occassionally we see a home or two and more often than not, there is nothing on the market in this area.  What makes this part of the Hollywood Riviera so great is that it’s walking distance to Torrance Beach and not far from the downtown shopping and dining area of Riviera Village.

That certainly couldn’t be further from the case at the moment as there are 4 homes for sale on Camino De Encanto in the Hollywood Riviera.

There are current 4 homes on the market and all are within a 1/2 block.  This is pretty unheard of an probably not ideal for any of the homes as when buyers have options….they want to negotiate.  Contact us for more information or visit our Hollywood Riviera homes for sale page to view all of the current lisitngs.

If oceanfront is what you’re looking for…..

By Keith Kyle 501 Paseo De La Playa Hollywood Riviera

I’ve been fortunate to represent a few clients on purchases or sales along Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera and the locations is nothing short of spectacular.  Paseo De La Playa is the oceanfront street that connects Redondo Beach with the beginning of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and offers a lifestyle not found in many places.

The recent listing of 501 Paseo De La Playa is no exception.  This 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home sits high on the bluff and offers mesmerizing views of the ocean, Palos Verdes and the beautiful coastline from Redondo to Malibu.

We're sorry, but we couldn't find MLS # PV16082156 in our database. This property may be a new listing or possibly taken off the market. Please check back again.

And then there were 4 – New Listings on the Ocean Front Street of Paseo De La Playa

In this market with very low inventory and many homes selling the minute that they hit the market, it’s very unusual to see 4 homes for sale on the most sought after street in the Hollywood Riviera.QN-wide

The 4 homes for sale sit on the oceanfront street of Paseo De La Playa, just above Torrance Beach.  Many residents know the street as it offers great views and is a favorite of cyclists heading up to Palos Verdes.  2 of the homes, the palatial gated estate located at 433 Paseo De La Playa, and 617 Paseo De La Playa are on the west side of the street meaning unblocked and unblockable views of the ocean, Palos Verdes, and the coastline all the way to Malibu.  The primary reason they are still available is the pricetag with the sellers asking $16,000,000 for the home at 433 and the the home at 617 listed for $4,495,000 which is considerably higher than the most recent sales of similar homes.

The remaining 2 homes are fairly new to the market as of January 6th.  Both sit on the east side of the street so they offer minimal coastline views but are still ideally located with a short walk or bike ride to the beach and the Riviera Village.  The home at 630 Paseo De La Playa is a rather pricey $1,888,888 for 1325 square feet and minimal views.  It’s market as a potential site for a 2 story dream home but as the home is in the Torrance hillside overlay area that might be a very tall task.  The home for sale at 528 Paseo De La Playa is a bit more appropriately priced with almost 1800 square feet.

 

Two Big Oceanfront Home Sales in the Hollywood Riviera on Paseo De La Playa

By Keith Kyle

Monthly home sales median prices can often be skewed by a few big numbers and October will certainly reflect that with two homes selling on the oceanfront street of Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera.

The first sale was located at 406 Paseo De La Playa which is actually the non ocean front side of the street, but due to it’ location there are no homes on the west side of the street and most of the ocean views are unblocked and panoramic.  The home was a very nice contemporary/modern design with large windows to allow for floor to ceiling views.  With 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths the home sold for a sizable $3.380,000 which is a number not generally seen on the east side of the street.406 Paseo De La Playa

The second home was located oceanfront at 605 Paseo De La Playa and sold for a sizable $4,300,000.  The home was a very original condition 1962 built home and for all intents and purposes this was a lot sale which sets a new price point for lot value in this highly sought after strip of land.  The homes on this side of the street have enormous lots over 20,000 feet but much of the land is a fairly unusable cliff/bluff.  They were originally on leased land but many of the homeowners have bought out the lease at one point or another.   One of the appealing aspects of this home was that it had a trail leading down to the beach and water which is fairly unique and almost impossible to do these days due to stringent restrictions by the California Coastal Commission.Oceanfront Homes
