December 5th, 2009 – Here in the Hollywood Riviera there are only 15 houses for sale right now. 6 on the Torrance (90505) side of the line and 9 on the Redondo Beach P.O. Box (90277) side of the line. The Hollywood Riviera neighborhood has 2 addresses – Torrance and Redondo Beach although it should be noted that the entire area lies in the City of Torrance. The Redondo Beach side is merely a P.O. Box and has nothing to do with the city of Redondo Beach. Schools are all South Torrance – Riviera Elementary, Richardson Middle School and South High School.
Of the 15 homes currently for sale – the prices range from $615,000 on 5026 Pacific Coast Highway, Torrance, CA 90505 to 517 Paseo de la Playa, Redondo Beach, CA 90277 which is located right on the bluff above Torrance Beach listed for $3,500,000. As you can see there is quite a broad range of homes for sale. In the mid-range, let’s say $949,000 – $1,099,000 there are 4 houses for sale that all have different qualities that make them each unique.
1. 4817 Via El Sereno, Torrance, CA 90505 – 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with a nice open modern floor plan. The house has many upgrades including a very decked out garage. The home has a nice city lights view out the back from a nice deck with a built-in firepit and seating. Surround sound package and high-end lighting systems make this home ready to move into today! $949,000
2. 452 Via los Miradores, Redondo Beach, CA 90277 – 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (although one bath is off the kitchen and not near the bedroom area.) Newer kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances looks out back to the sunny south facing pool area. Main bathroom is nicely remodeled as well with double sinks and pretty tile. $949,000
3. 359 Paseo de Gracia, Redondo Beach, CA 90277 – One of the few short sales in the neighborhood (currently there are 2 active on the market.) This one has been on the market a while and it was way over-priced at $1,179,000 but they just reduced the price to $958,000 which makes this 3 bedroom, 2 bath with over 1800+ square feet seem much more attractive.
4. 209 Vista de Parque, Redondo Beach, CA 90277 – as the name implies, it’s located adjacent to El Retiro Park and this nicely appointed, recently remodeled throughout 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home priced at $1,099,000 is quite nice.
