Building Spotlight – Oceanfront Living at the Sand Castle – 615 Esplanade

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 The Sand Castle Redondoskinny 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 range from the low $600,000s to …..depending on the location.  The front

building enjoys incredible oceanfront views from every level.  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 were a bit under $400 a month.  The Sand Castle does not have a pool or spa, but there is a pretty great place to swim directly in front.

Oceanfront Homes and Condos on The Esplanade of Redondo Beach

By Keith Kyle

When people think of life at the beach…they think ocean front. Unfortunately that idea is out of the price range of most people. Fortunately Redondo Beach has an option and it may be more affordable than you think. There are many options ranging from multi million dollar oceanfront estates, to the bluff top homes of Paseo De La Playa, to affordable condos that make life feel like a vacation!

Oceanfront Homes For Sale in Redondo Beach

Living at the beach may be more affordable than you think as Redondo Beach zoning allows for larger ocean front condo buildings not seen in other areas of the South Bay.   At the moment there are far more oceanfront condos, townhomes and homes for sale then in recent memory.  The current homes range from 1 bed 1 bath condos in the Sand Castle, to one of the more impressive oceanfront homes ever to come on the market at 717 Esplanade.  7 of the current homes for sale are ocean front condos on the Esplanade with the bulk of the additional opportunities being single family or multi unit.  The home at 739 Esplanade is one of the more intriguing properties as it’s currently 3 separate levels, each with kitchen and baths that can be torn down with the ability to build townhomes, or a very large estate, but may also work as an owner occupied investment property with owners living in one of the 3 levels and renting the other two.
