No Shortage of $1.0M+ Homes in the Golden Hills of Redondo Beach

By Keith Kyle

The Golden Hills of Redondo Beach was always the most affordable way of owning a good sized single family home.  Prices over $1,000,000 were rare and were saved for really special homes.  That’s all changed and sales of well over $1,000,000 are becoming commonplace.  Since December of 2015 there have been 10 homes that have come on the market above $1.0M.  The demand for the neighborhood remains very high and with most homes offering about 1850 square feet, buyers are still eager to purchase the larger or newer homes in the area.

Pros and Cons of the Golden Hills in Redondo Beach

As many of my clients are from out of the area or out of state, they seem to have a notion that the South Bay is simply one big city and there Golden-Hillsaren’t all that many differences between Manhattan BeachHermosa Beach and Redondo Beach.  The reality is that even within these cities the individual neighborhoods vary quite a bit.  Due to the sheer size of the city, Redondo Beach is one of the more varied communities in the South Bay in terms of types of housing, size and age, and price.

The area just east of Hermosa and just South of Manhattan (see Golden Hills Map)is a hilly section of Redondo Beach known as the Golden Hills.  Knowing the areas pros and cons is an important step in determining whether the Golden Hills is the right area for you.  The homes in the area have a not entirely flattering nickname and are called “tall and skinnies”.  Drive down any street in the area and you’ll see why.  When the homes were originally built the area was subdivided into 25×100 foot lots.  With no alleys in the rear, this means that the frontage of the home required a 2 car garage and as you’ll notice, the homes look somewhat similar.  So here’s the pros and cons of the area.

Pros:

  1. You get a bigger house for a lower price.  Many of the homes in the area are in the 1700+ square foot range with spacious living rooms, open kitchens and good sized bedrooms.
  2. Prices for these 1700+ square foot houses generally start in the high $600k range and newer, larger homes can sell for over $1,000,000.
  3. Location is excellent.  Being just east of Hermosa Beach, means that the Golden Hills is very close to the beach.  Saying it’s a walk or bike ride is a bit of a reach, but it’s not far off.  Being this close to the beach means cooler summers and warmer winters……and who doesn’t like that.
  4. Upgrades.  Many of the homes in the area have been very nicely upgraded and well taken care of.  Those that haven’t can be purchased for an even greater discount.
  5. Price.  Look just west in Hermosa and the price jumps considerably.  Try to find a home this size in other parts of Redondo and expect to pay $100k more.

Cons:

  1. The biggest complaint that I get to the area is the bedroom configuration.  With a 25 foot wide lot there’s only so many options the original builders had.  The general layout is living room (often with vaulted ceilings), kitchen and master bedroom upstairs, and garage and 2 bedrooms downstairs.  The master on one level with the other bedrooms downstairs is often an obstacle with families with small kids or expectant parents.
  2. Proximity to your neighbors.  Again with lots 25 feet wide, and front doors usually needing to be on the side of the house due to the garage, don’t generally mean much room between you and your neighbor.
  3. Lack of street parking.  With 2 car wide driveways in front of every 25 foot wide lot, it doesn’t leave much room for curbs.  On the other hand a two car garage plus 2 driveway spaces may make that a non factor.
  4. Small yards.  Generally these homes have a small yard in the rear without a front yard to speak of.  Again this can be a positive or a negative, depending on your situation.

Overall the Golden Hills offers a great opportunity to own a good sized home, at a good price and just a short drive to the beach.  See Recent Golden Hills home sales.

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.

Inventory, Home Sales, Pendings and Prices All Rising in Golden Hills of Redondo Beach

Unlike the adjacent neighborhoods of Manhattan and Hermosa Beach, the real estate market in the Golden Hills of Redondo Beach, just east of Hermosa has been somewhat unique in recent months.  Everything seems to be on the rise with the number of active homes for sale increasing, sales increasing, pending home sales increasing and prices on the rise.  The area is home to a rather unique type of single family home known as a “tall and skinny” in the local real estate world.  With lots dimensions at 25 x 100 and minimal setback requirements, most homes are only separated by 5 feet and is something not seen in many other neighborhoods. Read more about the pros and cons of Golden Hills Real Estate.  According to Redondo Beach real estate specialist Keith Kyle, “we’re seeing homes selling over list price, with multiple offers on a fairly regular basis and prices have rebounded considerably in 2013.”

Lack of Starter Homes Available in the Golden Hills of Redondo Beach

Many South Bay home buyers are looking for a starter home in the Beach Cities often look to the Golden Hills area of Redondo Beach.  The area offers homes often referred to as “tall and skinnies” due to the very narrow and long lots created when the area was originally subdivided.  The Golden Hills area is located just east of Hermosa Beach between Artesia and 190th.  Homes are often significantly less expensive then identical homes just several blocks away in the Hill Section of Hermosa.  The homes generally start in the mid $700K range for something with 1700 square feet or so, but there are always less expensive options….until recently.  While pulling comparables for a Redondo Beach home seller, it was hard to believe that of the 8 homes priced below $750,000 only one was active and all others were pending.  That’s a fairly incredible ratio, even in this very active market.  If home sellers are considering selling their entry level Golden Hills home, now may be a great time.

Golden Hills Redondo Beach homes

The chart below shows just how far down our inventory has come on single family homes priced below $750,000.  September of last year had 13 active SFR listings in the Golden Hills in this price range while now we only have one.  That’s a fairly incredible turn around in one year but the inventory has steadily dropped.

North Redondo Beach Real Estate

By Keith KyleRedondo 2 on a lot townhomes

Life in the Beach Cities of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach has it all…..wonderful weather, great neighborhoods, proximity to the beach, award winning schools and more. Along with all of the wonderful aspects comes a lofty price tag as the demand for homes in the area, even in today’s market, remains high. The most affordable area in the Beach Cities is known as North Redondo. Redondo Beach is broken into the two main areas of North and South Redondo and the dividing line is generally along 190th Street. What makes the area more affordable is the abundance of different types of housing options not found as frequently as in other nearby areas. Home options range from single family homes on oversize lots, to a multitude of townhome options, to various condominum
complexes.
