Torrance Oceanfront Home at 529 Paseo De La Playa Sells for $5,650,000

While the homes in the Hollywood Riviera have a Redondo Beach mailing address they’re actually residing in the city of Torrance….which means Torrance has beachfront homes (and a beach….but that’s another topic)

One notable sale was the oceanfront home located at 529 Paseo De La Playa. This oceanfront “project” home just closed escrow at $5,650,000 and has all the makings of a real legacy type property.  It’s likely to get a major overhaul but it’s a special property for sure.

The two story single family home  was a very clean but still fairly original with popcorn ceiling, wood paneling and more.  It had clearly been well maintained and had a great, and fairly rare flat yard overlooking the ocean and they had recently done a major project to shore up the hill and had created a trail to the beach which is no small task and approval from the California Coastal Commission can take years and years if approved at all.

Luxury Location in the Hollywood Riviera

Torrance is one of the more diverse cities in the South Bay when it comes to housing options. Some of the least expensive homes can be found in Torrance as well as some of the most expensive. The highest prices are almost always found along the beachfront street known as Paseo De La Playa. 425 Paseo De La Playa has a Redondo mailing address but is actually serviced by the city of Torrance. While it’s hard to imagine a home can be a bit of a project at $12,000,000 the eventual buyer is likely to spend a healthy amount truly making this one of the more spectacular homes in the South Bay.

425 Paseo De La Playa is one of those rare legacy type homes.  Perched on the bluffs above Torrance Beach, the home offers incredible and unblockable ocean views.  The 28,000+ sq foot lot is unheard of in the South Bay and as with all of the homes along the west side of Paseo, the lots extend all the way to the beach, but this home has an enormous amount of land in front of the home as well.  The gated entry and true estate feel make for endless possibilities.While this home is in need of some updating to truly make it a legacy home, the basics are all here.
