Nearing $3,000,000 in the Hollywood Riviera?

By Keith Kyle

It wasn’t long ago that most homes for sale in the Hollywood Riviera were priced around $1,000,000 with only the truly spectacular reaching towards the $2.0M mark.  Those days have past with $2,000,000+ being the new normal for big views and the abundance of high end flips in the area.  As of 2/8/17 there are 5 homes in the Hollywood Riviera priced over $2,000,000 and most are well over that formerly elusive price point.

Multiple Homes for Sale on Camino De Encanto…..Walking Distance to the Beach

By Keith Kyle

It’s not often that we see homes come on the market in the lower Hollywood Riviera neighborhood that’s west of Palos Verdes Blvd.  Occassionally we see a home or two and more often than not, there is nothing on the market in this area.  What makes this part of the Hollywood Riviera so great is that it’s walking distance to Torrance Beach and not far from the downtown shopping and dining area of Riviera Village.

That certainly couldn’t be further from the case at the moment as there are 4 homes for sale on Camino De Encanto in the Hollywood Riviera.

There are current 4 homes on the market and all are within a 1/2 block.  This is pretty unheard of an probably not ideal for any of the homes as when buyers have options….they want to negotiate.  Contact us for more information or visit our Hollywood Riviera homes for sale page to view all of the current lisitngs.

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.
