Beachfront living at the Sand Castle

615 Esplanade, Redondo Beach CA 90277

By Keith Kyle

Located oceanfront at 615 Esplanade, the Sand Castle represents the prototypical beachfront condo in Redondo Beach.  Consisting of two separate buildings, one truly oceanfront and the other sitting above and behind, the Sandcastle offers some incredible views and all that comes along with oceanfront living.  Dazzling sunsets, whales and dolphins out front, cool ocean breezes and that wonderful smell of the ocean.

Built in 1971, the Sand Castle definitely shows some signs of aging as it’s constantly subject to the salty spray but as it’s block wall construction it’s a very rugged feeling building and  the location just can’t be better.

The Sand Castle has 96 units, with the majority being 1 bedroom/1 bath and 719 square feet.  The layout of these units is long and skinny with the bedroom furthest east, kitchen in the middle and the living room facing the ocean.  This makes for some truly spectacular views, even from the kitchen.  Due to the block wall construction, many of the units have a rather industrial feel but some have been updated considerably.  The one bedroom units can start in the high $700,000s with 2 bedroom penthouse units well over $1,300,000 depending on the size and the location.  The front building enjoys incredible oceanfront views from every level (the lowest floor has a few units views partially blocked by the walkpath out front).  The rear building has partial views (horizon only) on the 5th floor (technically the first floor of the rear building) and the 6th floor (again technically the 2nd floor of the rear building) had bigger views but the sand and wave views are blocked by the front building.

The top floor of both the front and rear building offer a larger layout with 1 bed plus a large loft and 2 bathrooms.  Due to the very high ceilings they offer a sense of space that far exceeds the actual additional square footage.  The size of the units isn’t entirely clear with some units larger than others and the tax records not being completely accurate.  The layout is generally the same as the one bedroom with the addition of the stairs and loft.

HOA dues vary somewhat but as of this article they ranged between $416 and $450 ish a month.  The Sand Castle does not have a pool or spa, but there is a pretty great place to swim directly in front.
