The Avenues of South Redondo a Hot Market

By Keith Kyle

We usually see a home or two on “The Avenues” hit the market each month, but in the past 2 days we’ve seen 4 new and fairly exciting listings hit the market.  The Avenues is the area towards the most southern part of Redondo Beach before the Hollywood Riviera in which the streets all have letter names….Avenue A, B, C….These streets have a very unique and “beachy” feel to them as you can often see the ocean, they are mostly original looking bungalow style homes, are a short walk to the beach and the Esplanade, and they are very close to the Riviera Village shopping area.

Redondo Beach’s House of Mirrors

The saying goes, those who live in glass houses….what about those that live in mirror houses?

I’ve seen many houses in my day and haven’t always agreed with the sellers choices but I recently saw a house unlike anything I’d seen before.  The home, located at 606 Esplanade #1, is a front unit townhome with great ocean views, an ideal location, and loads of potential….but…..

In it’s current state it’s more like a carnival fun house than something you would expect in a beach house.  From the moment you walk in you are surrounded by mirrors.  Every wall, every closet, every corner is mirrored. You can’t walk into a bathroom or bedroom without seeing yourself reflected on every surface of the room.  It’s truly incredible and just a little dizzying.

Although it probably wouldn’t take much to turn the home into something fantastic, it’s hard to notice anything other than your reflection with the current situation.  I’ve seen mirrors added to beach homes to reflect the views, or add some light, but when every surface is mirrored its like being in a carnival funhouse.

It’s not hard to see why the listing agents chose to only post one picture as it might be impossible to get any pictures without the photographer’s reflection…hundreds of times.  In general the home has great potential.  The rooms are large, it offers a great ocean view, the kitchen living room have great light with sit down ocean views, but at the moment between the mirrors and the price, it’s going to be a tough sell.  606 Esplanade #1 in South Redondo Beach
