Home Spotlight – 717 Esplanade in Redondo Beach

Sometimes spectacular homes don’t sell.  That’s usually due to them being overpriced, but that still doesn’t make the 717 Esplanade Redondo Beachhomes any less cool.  This weeks spotlight home is located oceanfront in Redondo Beach on at 717 Esplanade.  The home is magnificent in just about every way with a higher elevation than anything comparable on the Strand in Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach and an oversized lot of over 11,000 feet allowing the home to be very large at over 7000 feet while still having incredible outdoor areas with a patio and a pool (not to mention the beach and ocean are only 40 feet away?) With 4 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths the spaces are large with tremendous views of course.

Having said all of that the home was originally listed at $14,250,000 in May of 2013!  That’s a long time on the market in any circumstances but given that the past two years have possibly been the hottest since 2006 with prices skyrocketing and demand at an all time high, it’s pretty clear that even at the current price of $12,999,999 it’s still sitting.  If this home were in Manhattan or Hermosa it likely would have sold prior to it being listed, but the reality is that it’s not in Manhattan or Hermosa.  It’s a spectacular house in and even more spectacular location but given the highest previous number was $8.1M and that was for a 21,000 foot lot it’s still a reach, but who knows….with the asking price for the oceanfront condos at 1500 Esplanade being $4,000,000 and up, values are getting more in line with 717 Esplanade all of the time.

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

605 Paseo De La PlayaThere is currently two additional oceanfront home on the market and actively for sale.   The first is  located at 617 Paseo De La Playa, Redondo Beach CA 90277.  As with most of the homes along Paseo, it’s been updated but still somewhat original.  Offering unbelievable views this will certainly be someone’s coastal dream house.

The second home is a palatial estate offering 7 bedrooms, 7 baths, over 7000 feet of living space on an almost 26,000 foot oceanfront lot.   The home is located at 433 Paseo De La Playa.


Price Reductions Making this Oceanfront Esplanade Home for Sale Intriguing

The home located at 709 Esplanade hasn’t been one of the easiest homes to sell, despite the fact that it sits 709 Esplanadeoceanfront with unbelievable views from Palos Verdes to Malibu.  It’s a home with some challenges and will require a buyer with some vision, and some money to do a fairly sizable remodel.  It’s been listed by a number of realtors and has come down from the hyper inflated $10,000,000 that it started at in 2012.  It’s a fairly palacial home by any South Bay standards with the sellers claim that it’s over 9000 feet.  Unfortunately it’s a classic example of an owner with very specific tastes that doesn’t appeal to the masses.  The owner clearly liked the color pink (or salmon we’re not sure) and tile.  Just about every surface in the home is a pinkish tile and some of the features are a challenge for most luxury home buyers… frog fountains, pinkish kitchen, etc.  In general our opinion is that the home will need a total overhaul, but at it’s current price it is starting to be a very enticing option for the homeowner that wants it all.  Contact us or call/text 310-251-2344 for more information.
