We thought that this recent listing was definitely worth a look as it’s full of charm and nicely remodeled. Located at 116 E. Pine the home was updated throughout and the only real challenge is it’s proximity to Main Street. It’s a very cute 3 bedroom 1 1/2 bath home with just under 1300 square feet.
Located at 4020 Bluff Place on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in the city of San Pedro, this magnificent oceanfront home is perched on the bluffs high above the Pacific Ocean and Cabrillo Beach. For the buyer priced out of the Strand in Manhattan Beach, or the cliffs of Palos Verdes this is an incredible opportunity at a fraction of the cost. Compare this to oceanfront prices starting at $5.0M in Palos Verdes, $4.5M price in Redondo Beach, and $13.0M in Hermosa and Manhattan Beach.
The dynamic views are completely unobstructed and extend to Dana Point and even north San Diego on especially clear days. The surf is literally in your backyard where you’ll hear the crashing waves, watch as kite surfers an sailboats ply the waters and enjoy the harbor lights in the evening. The beautiful custom home was built in 2000 and was extensively remodeled in 2011. It is one of a kind and offers the feel of a luxury hotel….with unparalleled views. Surrounded by mature landscaping and a very limited number of neighboring properties, the home affords a sense of privacy and seclusion not often found in the South Bay. The ground floor offers a spacious and open floor plan with lovely new hardwood floors, marble fireplace, and spacious living and dining rooms…all with spectacular views. The open kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances, custom white wash cabinets, and new Italian marble countertops. The 30 foot wide floor to ceiling sliding glass doors open onto the expansive entertainment deck and the ocean beyond. The ground floor also offers a sizable bedroom with it’s own bathroom which is perfect for guest or owners needing a ground floor bedroom. The entire second floor is divided into two huge, finely appointed master suites with a kitchenette in between. Imagine being greeted every morning with an ocean view that will leave you breathless. The upper floor also enjoys an oversized balcony perfect for sitting and relaxing. With over 1000 sq ft of decks enjoy one of the most beautiful stretches of So Cal coastline! Cabrillo Beach is in full view and just a short walk from the house. For additional photos visit www.OceanfrontExecutiveRetreat.com
It’s been a while since there was a home for sale in Fusion in the South Bay, the gated townhome community in the Hollyglen area of Hawthorne. Ideally located just east of Manhattan Beach, it’s is a fantastic alternative to Redondo, Manhattan and El Segundo. Prices would be exponentially higher if it were located just across the street, but the location still offers residents easy access to the active South Bay lifestyle with the beach, dining, shopping and more close by.
The current unit for sale is a “C” floorplan (see our video walkthrough of a different Fusion C townhome for a sense of the layout) which offers a very open kitchen/dining/living room areas with 2 bedrooms and laundry upstairs. The C floorplan also offers a 2 car attached garage. The ammenities of the complex include pool and spa, small playground, half basketball court and various exercise stations.
Located at 5406 W 149th Place unit #18, (see Fusion South Bay map) it is priced at $499,000 which, in our opinion, is low and would be a good deal for the buyer that purchases the home. Square footage is listed as 1,110 by listing agent Young Kim of Landmark, but in our experience the square footage is actually larger when measured.
El Segundo is primarily a community of beach bungalows and remodeled homes with a very casual feel. Every once in a while a stunning luxury estate property comes on the market and 840 Center Street certainly fits that description. According to listing agent Raju Chhabria:
“Completed in 2010, this custom home designed by Tomaro Design Group is warm and inviting, yet privately secluded. Upon entering the Portico, you will find a secluded courtyard with fire pit, tranquil water feature, detailed architectural lighting, and detached private office. Dramatic 2 story living room with 22ft ceilings, surrounded by windows. See-thru fireplace shared with the open family room. Formal dining room looks out to one of the 3 water features that occupy the property. The gourmet kitchen consists of Thermador appliances, imported marble and granite countertops, large center island with built-in wine and beverage refrigerators, a sizable pantry and a Butler Pantry. The breakfast nook and open family room both lead out to the backyard which features a built-in BBQ, gas fireplace and tranquil water feature, perfect for entertaining! Master suite with fireplace, a concealed in-ceiling TV, balcony, his and hers walk-in closets, en-suite bath with vanity and spa tub. The west wing includes a laundry room and 3 additional bedroom suites, each complete with private baths, walk-in closets and individually controlled climate. 3-car garage with ample professional storage cabinets and a custom motorized bike rack.”
El Segundo doesn’t generally see too many open houses as home inventory is down and it’s a fairly small town with few homes for sale in the best of markets. This weekend sees more than usual with several advertised open houses. See the list below for El Segundo and the South Bay. If you’re seeing this post after the September dates please visit our South Bay open houses site for updated homes for sale and schedules.
Last month we wrote a market update and explained how the number of homes available for sale in El Segundo had jumped a bit due to the recent completion of 12 new townhome units on the corner of Pepper and Walnut. The demand for these new units was in full force as all but 3 of the units are now in escrow or under contract. The townhomes ranged in price between $789,000 to $849,000. All were 3 bedroom 2.5 bath estimated at 1900 square feet. and fairly ideally located near Main Street and downtown El Segundo.
