Classic beach town feel in the Avenues of South 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.
