Seems Like the Entire Oceanfront Redondo Esplanade is For Sale

Another Beachfront Home Hits the Market on the Esplanade!

601 Esplanade Unit#B, Redondo Beach, CA 90277 - Listed for $4,700,000

If it’s not something in the water… must be something about living on the water.  In the past 2 weeks there have been three beachfront/oceanfront homes that have come on the market.  These Esplanade homes are a rarity.  It’s even more amazing given just how low home inventory is in Redondo in general.  We don’t know the reason but it’s pretty exciting.

Just days ago 809 Esplanade hit the market.  This was a land sale with a charming but small and dated bungalow built in 1930 listed at $6,500,000 and then a few days later the enormous oceanfront estate at 709 Esplanade hit the market at $11,250,000 and is already in escrow.

Today a very different but equally rare home hit the market.  601 Esplanade #B is part of a 2 unit building and this is the upper level condo.  It’s pretty dated but has some very nice features including 15 foot ceilings and an entire west facing wall of windows from floor to ceiling.  Take in the stunning and panoramic ocean views and the roofdeck is more like being on a boat than on a house.

It’s listed by Listed by Bryn Stroyke & James Harvey of Bayside and offers 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and little under 2,500 square feet

2 Oceanfront Homes This Week! 709 Esplanade Redondo Beach

Beachfront Estate Hits the Market in Redondo Beach

709 Esplanade, Redondo Beach CA 90277 - Listed for $11,250,000

What a week it’s been on the oceanfront and beachfront  home market in Redondo.  Just days ago 809 Esplanade hit the market.  This was a land sale with a charming but small and dated bungalow built in 1930 listed at $6,500,000.

This was a rarity as there are only a few single family homes on the Esplanade in Redondo and now there’s another in the same week.

The location is the only similarity… they couldn’t be much more different.   

While 809 is a tear down beach bungalow…..709 Esplanade is huge, remodeled and has an incredible look and feel.

709 Esplanade is one of the largest homes ever built in the Beach Cities at almost 9,000 square feet.  Ironically enough we featured this house years ago (not necessarily in a good way) when it sold in 2015.  The home was on the market for almost 3 years and was originally priced in 2012 at $10,000,000 and ended up selling for $6,350,000 in 2015.  What was so unusual about the home was that everything on the inside was pink.  Pink marble flooring, pink tile, pink sculptures… was odd.

The home has now been EXTENSIVELY remodeled with an entirely different look and feel.

709 Esplanade Listing Details

  • 6 bedrooms
  • 6 bathrooms
  • 8,944 sq feet (buyer to verify)
  • 5,667 sq foot oceanfront lot
  • Built in 1990
  • 8 car  garage!!

709 Esplanade – Oceanfront Home For Sale in Redondo Beach CA

***Please note that this post was from 2018 and this was pulled off of the market**

Without question the highest priced home currently on the market is the oceanfront home located at 709 Esplanade in South Redondo Beach. While there are numerous condo complexes on the Esplanade there are only a very small number of single family homes along Redondo’s waterfront street. 709 Esplanade is pretty unique in just about every way. While the location is the primary selling point the home is absolutely huge offering somewhere between 8,800 and 9,200 square feet. The home features 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, many of which enjoy incredible and unblockable views. With 51 feet of ocean frontage this home is rare indeed.

The home has been on the market for almost 5 months and has an interesting history on the market.  It was on the market back in 2012 at $10,000,000 but was absolutely not the home it is today.  Picture almost 10,000 feet of pink tile and that pretty much sums up what it was like.  They struggled to sell and after many price drops and several realtors it finally sold at $6,350,000 in 2015.

The current owners did an extensive remodel of just about every surface to get it up to it’s current updated and clean look.  Being so unique they’re also searching for a unique buyer that can afford the price tag and wants a massive home in an area that a home half it’s size would be considered massive.  They’ve had one price reduction from the original $14,200,000 and it’s currently listed at $13,700,000 by Ed Kaminsky of Christies Strand Hill.

Ocean View Condos in Seascape and The Village Redondo Beach

Oceanview condos of the village and seacapes

real estate and condos for sale in south Redondo Beach 90277

The area of Redondo known as The Village, or Seascapes I, II and III offers the finest in resort living. Located near the Redondo Beach pier and a short walk to both King Harbor and the beaches of Redondo, these upscale condominiums offer a resort feel, and are the perfect home for those wanting to live close to the ocean. Often offering fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina, and the beaches of Redondo the Seascape condominiums and townhomes boast pool and exercise facilities, a short walk to beaches, shopping and the pier. This is South Bay living at it’s finest.

There are endless reasons that the South Bay and Redondo Beach are great places to live, and without question the proximity to the ocean is one of them.

Redondo Beach offers a wider variety of options than neighboring Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach as it’s zoned to allow higher density housing in some areas…..meaning larger condo complexes. Some of the most ideal complexes are located in South Redondo Beach just off of Catalina and are known as the Village or Seascapes I, II and III. All of the Seascape Buildings are also known as the Village (they’re actually all on Catalina but the addresses are on The Village) All of the complexes have homeowners associations with relatively high HOA dues (other than the actual “Village” to cover the various landscaping, pools and some insurance, but if you’re looking for an affordable way to have a beach home, they may be ideal for you.   See the current condos for sale in The Village and Seascapes

The Village condos and townhomes

610-696 the village, Redondo beach

The Village in South Redondo Beach offers the most affordable way of living right at the beach in the South Bay. Consisting of 323 ocean view units with the majority being condo style homes with a few townhomes on the corner of Torrance and Catalina.   Home options include 410 foot studios, 619 foot one bedroom and 2 bedroom condos located with street addresses between 610 and 660 The Village as well as a few townhomes in the 670-696 addresses that rarely come on the market.  

The units are staggered so that all offer some ocean views from the condos or balconies.  The buildings consist primarily of one bedroom condos with each floor having 2 studios that are furthest from the water, and two 2 bedroom layouts that are always on the front of the building and offer the most direct ocean views.

The Village is located just east of King Harbor and the Redondo Pier.  The proximity to the beach, King Harbor, Hermosa and Manhattan makes for a fantastic and active lifestyle.  The community offers a resort like feel with 2 fantastic pool areas, one for Village owners/renters and the other shared with the nearby Ocean Club (rental units), BBQ areas, firepits, state of the art fitness (part of the Ocean Club that owners/renters have access to) and an onsite market/restaurant. See the current homes for sale in The Village and Seascape

Seascape 1

210 - 250 The Village, Redondo Beach

Seascape One is actually located between Seascapes II and III and consists of 210-250 The Village. It was built in 1978 and is just east of King Harbor and the Redondo Beach pier. Many of the units have fairly unique windows that allow for plenty of light and breezes. The smallest units are 1 bedroom 1 bath with around 577 square feet with the largest units being 2 bedroom 2 bath with just over 1600 feet. Values depend primarily on the location and view as well as the upgrades that the owners have done over time.

 Pros: Location, location, location. Seascape I is central to everything and you truly don’t have to get in the car on the weekends. It’s directly adjacent to the marina and the Redondo Beach pier and has a large grassy park just outside your door. Some of the units are very nicely remodeled and some have tremendous ocean views (although those unblocked view units rarely come on the market. This is an affordable way to live by the beach or use a rental unit. See additional pictures of an ocean view unit at 240 The Village.

Cons: The complex is a little maze like and finding your way around isn’t always simple but this is not a challenge for the residents….only visitors. The complex also has shared laundry with a laundry room near the elevator on every floor. As each floor has it’s own laundry it is only shared by a few units so in general it isn’t a problem. Unlike Seacapes Two and Three the complex is not gated (although the parking, pool and the north side of the complex are)  See the current homes for sale in The Village and Seascapes

Seascape 2 condos and townhomes

110-160 The village

Seascape 2 was built in 1980 and looks a bit more modern than Seascape I. The units are much larger with the smallest one bedrooms just a bit over 900 square feet and the largest condos having 2 bedrooms plus a very good sized loft (with an additional balcony) and just at 1900 square feet. Seascape 2 consists of the buildings with 100-160 The Village addresses and is the furthest north of the oceanfront/oceanview buildings. The complex has a very nice pool area and is walkable to just about everything imaginable. Seascape 2 also has some townhome units with larger square footage and attached garages. Many/most of the units have been extensively remodeled and many have stunning ocean and harbor views.

Pros: Again the location is excellent with shops, restaurants, gyms and the beach just a stroll away. The complex has a very nice vacation like feel to it and is ideal for those looking for a beach home, second home or just wanting a primary residence at the beach….without the price tag of many other oceanview properties.

Cons: There are occassionaly special assessments and the monthly HOA is fairly high and currently range between the low $700 -$850s depending on the unit size. It’s a fairly large complex and often a bit confusing to find your way around. Although the views can be stunning some of the units are a bit further back with a service road and a few buildings in front of the views of some of the lower units.  See the current homes for sale in The Village and Seascapes

Seascape 3

510 - 540 The Village, Redondo Beach

Built in 1980 Seascape 3 feels very similar to Seascape II with a slightly more “vacation” type feel. The condos are fairly large with the smallest 1458 square feet and the largest being the penthouse 2 bedroom with an ocean view loft and separate patio with slightly over 2000 square feet. This is the furthest south of the Seascape buildings but still walkable to everything.

Pros: Again the location is just ideal and the complex has a great second home or vacation feel. Higher floor units have some tremendous views and many have been very nicely upgraded. As with all of the Esplanade and Village buildings, prices have come down considerably as they have had a very high second home ownership in the past and have suffered quite a bit with some foreclosures and short sales forcing prices down which makes for an ideal environment for buyers

Cons: As with all of the Seascape buildings the HOA is quite high and the age of the buildings, coupled with their environment of sun and salt air, often make for additional assessments. HOA is also fairly restrictive as to what can be done to the units, but this can also be considered a positive for many.
