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.

Location, Location, Location – Oceanfront Home in the Hollywood Riviera

Beachfront homes in the Hollywood Riviera don’t come along all that often. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, 505 Paseo De La Playa might be the home and location for you.  The home is listed at $5,500,000 this is a 4 bedroom (one bedroom downstairs and 3 upstairs), 3 bath home with just under 3,200 square feet.  Offering really large (by South Bay standards) lots that extend all the way from Paseo De La Playa to the sands of Torrance Beach they are very unlike the beachfront homes of the Manhattan Beach Strand and Hermosa Strand,    It’s rare to see one of these incredible oceanfront homes hit the market and this is no exception.  Built in 1962 it’s an older home that feels pretty dated and will likely get/need quite a bit of work to become a luxury home,  but as they say in real estate, “location, location, location”.

505 Paseo De La Playa


  • 4 bedrooms
  • 3 baths
  • 3,179 square feet
  • 26,985 foot lot
  • Oceanfront
  • Priced at $5,500,000

505 Paseo De La Playa Information

Home of The Week – 425 Paseo De La Playa

One of our absolute favorite locations in all of the South Bay is Paseo De La Playa along the bluffs of the Hollywood Riviera. There are a very limited number of homes here and it’s truly a showcase location.

This is an unbelievable location as the lots/homes are not only oceanfront but the lots are huge and extend all the way down to the beach.  As 425 Paseo De La Playa is one of the lower homes the slopes is a bit more mild and they’ve been able to build a path down to the beach (which is a VERY challenging step for homes without a path as it require California Coastal approval….which they don’t do).   The home at 425 is on a 28,000+ foot lot!  Pretty unheard of in the South Bay and certainly unheard of for a beachfront home.

  • Price:  $10,000,000
  • 3 bedroom
  • 3.5 bath
  • 2,640 square feet

Hollywood Riviera Home Sales and Home Prices for October

The Hollywood Riviera in Torrance had a fairly typical month for October 2019.  There were 9 home sales during the month and all were single family homes.   The median list price for the closed sales was $1,200,000 with the median sales price of $1,177,500 indicating that it is still a solid seller’s market.  That does seem to be shifting somewhat with the playing field leveling just a bit.  The least expensive home sale during October was $820,000 for a 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath single family home at 4414 Highgrove and the most expenseive sale of the month was a Louis Tomaro designed home at 340 Via Colusa.  This home was of particular interest to us as we were the listing agents when the sellers purchased the home.
