You Don’t See Many Homes Like This – 433 Paseo De La Playa

The Hollywood Riviera is a fantastic neighborhood with a small town community charm, highly ranked schools and often times some great ocean views. While there are more expensive homes popping up more often these days there are not many like this….in any parts of the South Bay outside of Palos Verdes.

433 Paseo De La Playa is definitely one of a kind. Perched on the bluff with stunning ocean and coastline views, the home is like something usually seen in Beverly Hills or Bel Aire….not Redondo Beach and Torrance.

Boasting 7 bedrooms (all spacious), 6 1/2 baths, 7,792 square feet on a massive 25,000+ lot that extends to the beach this home has it all…..sports court, gated driveway, ocean view pool and spa (with a mini waterslide) and huge views from many of the rooms.  The home even features a oversized path down to the sand which is rare as the California Coastal Commission highly regulates direct access to the beach and the permitting process (if approved) can take years and years.   Overlooking Torrance Beach, the home offers huge views of PV,the beaches and cities of Redondo Beach, Hermosa and Manhattan Beach and extends all the way to Malibu.

Listed at $16,000,000 this price tag is as unique as the house for this area.
