My Favorite Part of Living in the Hollywood Riviera

My Favorite Part of Living in the Hollywood Riviera

We (Laura and I are sisters) have lived in the Hollywood Riviera since 1999 as adults.  We both went to South High School – the public school right down the street.  We lived in the neighborhood adjacent to the Riviera then, often called the Seaside Ranchos; so we are pretty local.  Our favorite part of living here is the way of life that the Hollywood Riviera affords you.  The Riviera surrounds one of the finest beaches in Southern California – it is clean, open, aboundeded by cliffs and offers a wonderful bike path that you could ride all the way up to Santa Monica on….the end of the bike path is here at Torrance Beach.  redondo-beach-picture.jpgWe have the Riviera Village at our doorstep offering fine restaurants, quaint shopping, spa experiences, art dealers, Trader Joes and plenty of coffee shops.  We have an excellent elementary school, Riviera Elementary which has a 920 API Score.  (We both feel proud to send our children there.)  The people – this is the most important aspect of our wonderful neighborhood.  The people here are so friendly and happy to be here.  You see people out taking walks and they are often with their neighbors.  We see people helping other people and volunteering at the schools.  A lot of the people that live here are “original owners.”  They moved here in the 1950’s when this neighborhood was just getting off its feet.  Nowhere better to go once you’ve lived here. 
The Views here are amazingpanoview-3.JPG…about 60% of the homes here have some sort of view – ranging from panoramic (city, ocean/beaches, mountains, to just some city or just ocean – believe me, none of it’s bad.)  It’s really a wonderful place to call HOME!
