A Number of Condos Listings Hit the Market in Seascape One Redondo Beach

By Keith Kyle

There’s been a definite lack of inventory in the world of ocean view and ocean front condos in Redondo Beach over the past 18 months.  Prices have risen dramatically as inventory dipped to record lows and demand for the “vacation” style feel of complexes such as the Seascape buildings, The Village and condos on the Esplanade have continued to grow.  At least in one complex there’s been a higher than usual number of homes coming on the market in recent days.  Seascape One is located in the 200 block buildings of The Village (which is unusual in itself as it’s actually on Catalina).  As of July 18th there are 3 units for sale in Seascape One.  Of the 3 2 offer a interior garden view (this is the only Seascape or Village building offering interior facing units) and one offers some pretty significant ocean and harbor views.  Built in 1978 the condos are fairly ideally located just behind King Harbor and walkable to the pier, the beach, and the shops and restaurants of the King Harbor area.

Where Have all the Ocean Front and Ocean View Condos Gone?

Although the housing inventory has been low in Redondo Beach for almost 2 years now, the market for and ocean view Village condos is almost non-existent. Popular condo complexes such as The Village, the Seascape buildings, and various oceanfront buildings on the Esplanade are nowhere near the normal inventory levels. According to realtor Keith Kyle, “It’s really been months since there’s been anything new. There are currently a few places that have been on the market for some time now, but the few new listings, if priced anywhere near where they should be, disappear quickly.”

“These homes offer the iconic South Bay beach lifestyle and are are highly sought after, often by professionals that travel extensively, local retired or semi-retired people looking for that vacation beach feel, or those priced out of nearby townhomes and single family homes.”

The inventory has continued to drop to nearly a trickle with only 2 condos on the market as of this writing.  Both are in the Seascape buildings behind King Harbor and the Redondo Pier area.  The homes often offer the real feel of living on vacation as many have great views and some offer terrific amenities.

 

Condo Spotlight – 721 Esplanade – Oceanfront Living in Oceania

By Keith Kyle

In our continuing discussions of oceanfront condos in Redondo Beach today we’ll spotlight the Oceania building at 721 Esplanade.  As this is one of the furthest south of all the larger condo buildings views are often about as good as they get….especially on units that face NW.  Oceania consist of 28 1 and 2 bedroom condos, all directly facing the ocean.  Some of the units sit on the corner and enjoy even more dramatic views that extend from Palos Verdes to Malibu with the coastline and King Harbor in between.

HOA fees run around $315 a month (as of August 2014) but the amounts vary slightly.  Oceania has a very nice sun deck but the building does not have a pool or spa.   The building does have a small fitness room and laundry is common area with individual units not having W/D hookups.  As of this post, pets are permitted according to the CCRs.

Oceania at 721 Esplanade in Redondo Beach721 Esplanade sits as high on the bluff as any of the buildings so views are just about as good as it gets (it also has the best ocean front views of any parking lot we’ve seen).

Another very nice aspect to the location of Oceania is that it is a relatively short walk to the charming shopping and dining area of Riviera Village  near the Hollywood Riviera.

Currently there is one beautiful corner unit for sale and while still for sale can be seen here.

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!

The Village in South Redondo Beach May Be the Most Affordable Ocean Views

The Village, located on Catalina Blvd in South Redondo Beach, is a condo complex just east of King Harbor. It offers some resort type amenities   with a hotel style pool and exercise facility, and is ideally located walking distance to just about everything. What’s perhaps the best aspect may be the prices. Each building consists of primarily 619 square foot one bedroom condos and due to the angular patios almost all have some type of ocean view.   Each building also offers 2 studios on the easternmost part of each floor, and 2 bedroom condos, which rarely become available, on the westernmost, ocean facing side of the buildings.  The Village consists of 6 larger 3 story (they’re actually 4 or 5 levels depending on garages but 3 floors of condos) buildings and 3 buildings with townhome type units.  According to Keith Kyle, one of the top Redondo Beach realtors that specializes in the area, “The Village is an ideal fit for buyers looking for a vacation type feel.  Most owners use the condos as a second home or as a beach rental as demand is always high for ocean view homes.”

Parking is located below each building (parking for each unit is not necessarily in the same building) and units can either have one or two spaces.  Laundry is common area located near the 1st floor garage in most cases.  Click here to see a map of The Village Condominiums and Townhomes.  Click here To see a video tour of some other ocean view and ocean front communities.
