709 Esplanade – Oceanfront Home For Sale in Redondo Beach CA

Without question the highest priced home currently on the market is the oceanfront home located at 709 Esplanade in South Redondo Beach. While there are numerous condo complexes on the Esplanade there are only a very small number of single family homes along Redondo’s waterfront street. 709 Esplanade is pretty unique in just about every way. While the location is the primary selling point the home is absolutely huge offering somewhere between 8,800 and 9,200 square feet. The home features 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, many of which enjoy incredible and unblockable views. With 51 feet of ocean frontage this home is rare indeed.

The home has been on the market for almost 5 months and has an interesting history on the market.  It was on the market back in 2012 at $10,000,000 but was absolutely not the home it is today.  Picture almost 10,000 feet of pink tile and that pretty much sums up what it was like.  They struggled to sell and after many price drops and several realtors it finally sold at $6,350,000 in 2015.

The current owners did an extensive remodel of just about every surface to get it up to it’s current updated and clean look.  Being so unique they’re also searching for a unique buyer that can afford the price tag and wants a massive home in an area that a home half it’s size would be considered massive.  They’ve had one price reduction from the original $14,200,000 and it’s currently listed at $13,700,000 by Ed Kaminsky of Christies Strand Hill.

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…..pink 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.

709 Esplanade – One Wacky (and Ideally Located) Oceanfront House

By Keith Kyle

The South Bay is definitely not a “seen one, seen them all” real estate market. Homes are often as unique as the owners that built them. 709 Esplanade is definitely one of those homes. When we first saw this home we were fairly shocked to see a price tag of $9,900,000. Despite being a very large home at a seller stated 9200 feet, it’s a home needing an abundance of work to appeal to most buyers. It’s been listed, cancelled and relisted a few times with the current offering at a somewhat more reasonable $6,995,000. They’re also banking on taking a pretty wacky house and adding a pretty wacky situation as it’s listed with one of TV personalities from the West Side. The house itself was clearly custom designed and decorated with the most eye catching feature being seemingly 9000 feet of pink marble floors. Pink hued fountains, frogs, mermaids, multi colored mosiacs and dark and heavy accests and more are found throughout the home.  Since originally listed the home has been cleared out which helps quite a bit, but we still feel this price is on the higher end given the work that needs to be done.  That said, the size and the beach front location is almost as unique as the home itself and some buyer may feel that the good outweighs the unique.
