Endless Ocean Views – Paseo De La Playa in the Hollywood Riviera

By Keith Kyle

The Hollywood Riviera is one of my favorite areas of the South Bay. It offers great views, a small town community feel, ever present ocean breezes, and homes that generally fit on the lots (no McMansions) which make for a feel that you don’t often get in the overcrowded South Bay.  It’s hard to go wrong with any location in this coastal community but there’s one street that beats them all. Paseo De La Playa offers oceanfront living for the lucky few and enjoys the best of all imaginable views.  The homes sit up on a bluff, and enjoy views of Palos Verdes, panoramic ocean views, and coastline views from Redondo Beach all the way to Malibu.  What that makes for is ever changing, always impressive views.  During the day it’s all about the ocean and coastline, but in the evening when colors change, it becomes a fantastic city lights view along the coast.

The lots, as seen below, are huge and usually in the 20,000+ range although may are on leased land often with an option to buyout the lease every few years.  Depending on how high on the hill you are (lower elevation homes on towards the left above) there is sometimes direct beach access from the homes which dramatically increases the appeal as “RAT” beach (Right after Torrance) is just below and almost serves as a private beach as access is limited to a fairly long walk from the parking lot.

Homes on this street rarely become available and many are still in fairly original condition with original owners from the 1960s (honestly why would anyone want to move) and range anywhere from the low $3,000,000s- to well into the $6.0M’s for anything remodeled, especially with beach access.

Adding beach access, if not already there, is a huge struggle as it’s tightly regulated by the California Coastal Commission.  The only minor inconvenience to living on Paseo De La Playa is that it’s a moderately busy street and a frequent route for both cars and bicyclists going between Redondo and Palos Verdes.  There is one condo complex at the top of the street called Cote D’Azure with 87 units perched high on the bluff surrounding extensive grounds and pools.  The units are 2 bedrooms generally ranging between 1300-1550 square feet.  Many units do not sit oceanfront and have limited views, while the rare few offer similar views to the SFRs just down the street.

Overall the homes on Paseo De La Playa offer some of the best features imaginable for those looking into the epitome of California coastal luxury living.

Riviera Village – The Heart of South Redondo and the Hollywood Riviera

Welcome to Riviera village in the hollywood riviera

If you’re looking for a classic beach downtown area and Hermosa and Manhattan are just too crowded, take a trip to the charming Riviera Village in South Redondo Beach.

The Riviera Village features great locally owned shops and restaurants, a very pedestrian friendly feel and sits just a few blocks from the beach.  It has a distinct retro feel of beach towns of old.

Riviera Village offers a charming collection of over 300 eclectic shops, restaurants and services.

Stroll the tree-lined streets or people-watch at one of the sidewalk cafes. Relax in an open environment where Redondo Beach sea breezes keep your shopping and dining cool.

 

Farmers Market, Fridays 3 to 7 pm

The Riviera Village Farmers Market is a great spot to pick up everything you need for a great picnic at the beach, Saturday night dinner with friends, or relaxing Sunday brunch.  Friday farmer’s market has loads of fresh produce, fruit, and a wide selection of prepared foods, including olive oils, jams and jellies, and snacks.   Grab some local food and head to the beach for a sunset picnic.

Third Thursdays

Enjoy shopping after dinner as selected stores stay open late on the third Thursday of every month. Live music and a drawing for Village gift baskets add to the fun.

Hollywood Riviera Home Prices On the Rise

The Hollywood Riviera real estate market has taken off in the past few weeks with a median list price of over $1.5M which is a fairly unbelievable number for an area with a median sales price of just over $1.0M for the past 4 months.  Included in these sold homes was the ocean front home at 623 Paseo De La Playa which sold for $2.625M and without that very unique sale, median prices would have been considerably lower.  What accounts for this incredible increase?

According to Redondo Beach specialist, Keith Kyle, it is a combination of a number of factors.  “The market has clearly changed in the past few months with inventory dropping and prices rising.  In addition the homes currently on the market just happen to be more upgraded and larger as sellers with luxury homes in the Hollywood Riviera have decided it is great time to list their homes.  One last factor is the dramatic reduction in the number of distressed sales.  As of a year ago distressed sales made up a sizable portion of the listings and are almost non-existent these days.”  Click here to view the most recent home sales in the Hollywood Riviera.

Some neighborhoods lie right on the bluff with cool ocean breezes and a distinct beach feel, while others lie on tree lined streets and offer a sense of privacy and seclusion not common in the South Bay.  Many homes have great views but there are no better views in all of the South Bay than the oceanfront homes of Paseo De La Playa

Experience the charm of dining and shopping in the Riviera Village, spectacular sunsets, and an abundance of outdoor activities in the Hollywood Riviera.  With view protections in most of the area due to the “hillside overlay” this is one of the more unique areas in the South Bay with some assurance that the view the home has now will be the same view in the future.
