Today’s Brokers’ Open in Redondo Beach was loaded with new listings; it definitely feels like inventory is picking up! Outdoor spaces and some nice remodels caught my eye today. Make sure you check out these properties over the weekend. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’m always happy to coordinate showings and negotiate offers, if you need representation.
North Redondo Beach, Area 152
2312 Huntington Lane, #2, $999,000
This detached, back unit townhome is on an unusual (almost) 9,000 sq foot lot. Typical lot size for a two-on-a lot is 7,500 sq. feet. This extra land affords both units a lot of space. There are two guest spots: one between the units and one to the left of the rear unit. And the backyard is much deeper than the typical two-on-a-lot, hosting a bar, large patio table and chairs, and built-in waterfall. It’s an entertainer’s dream. Not to be overlooked, is the recently remodeled interior. There are Acacia hardwood floors, beautiful custom cabinets and marble countertops. I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of marble in the kitchen because it stains easily, but it looks gorgeous. Upstairs is a family room and 4 bedrooms. This home is priced LOW at $999,000. I can guarantee that there will be multiple offers. It should go over $1.1 based on the upgrades and size of the lot and backyard. This is an unusual property and it should create high demand.
2504 Huntington Lane, #B, $1,260,000
Just two blocks east, 2504 Huntington Lane is another townhome for sale. It’s a newer Mediterranean construction. It’s also a detached, rear unit. This 2003 built townhome also had a hefty makeover and shows very well. It has a light and airy feel, and there are many custom details like the stone on the fireplace and the chandelier in the stairwell. Priced in the right ballpark, this home should sell quickly.
1907 Belmont Lane, #A, $789,000
This property was another surprise today. It offered a floorplan that I’ve never seen before in North Redondo. And in my opinion, different can be very good. The front entrance is toward the back of the house… not sure I’m sold on that, but it does offer some additional privacy. This townhome does not have the open concept that everyone seems to be looking for these days, but the design offers open, airy space. You can look down into the kitchen and living space from the stairway mid-landing and through the interior windows from one of the bedrooms upstairs., giving the home a lot of character. It’s a 3 bedroom that is currently being used as a 2 bedroom. It works well if 2 bedrooms is all you need because then you can enjoy the charming formal dining room. But it can also be easily converted back to a downstairs 3rd bedroom… just need to install doors to the closet. There are a ton of outdoor spaces throughout this house and the side run is extra wide and extremely usable.
North Redondo Beach, Golden Hills, Area 154
Heading into the Golden Hills, there were 3 tall & skinny homes on Brokers’ today. These are all single families, and they earned the name tall & skinny from the typical narrow lot dimensions of 25′ x 100′.
1109 Stanford Ave, $1,049,000
This single family is in decent condition although it could use some updating. I like the fact that it has the additional half bathroom upstairs with the living space so the master bedroom doesn’t have to share a bathroom with guests. The backyard was my favorite feature. It has a zen-like patio with bamboo to create extra privacy.
1215 Stanford Ave, $1,295,000
This single family is not the typical tall & skinny lot. The lot size is slightly bigger at 3,763 sq feet. The house is over 1,725 sq feet. It feels a lot bigger than what you expect when you walk up to it, doing a good job of fitting a lot of living space into this split level. This property also has great outdoor spaces that help extend the livability of the home. There’s a L-shaped backyard, a nice-sized front deck and a private front patio. You will want to spend a lot of time outside in these cozy spaces.
826 Knob Hill, $1,375,000
I made a stop in South Redondo today at 826 Knob Hill. This house is across the street from Alta Vista Elementary. It’s an older home that’s been nicely remodeled downstairs. There are three large entertaining areas on the first floor plus a bedroom. Upstairs are three more bedrooms. There is no true master bedroom, but you could easily convert the front living room or back family room into an awesome master suite and still have plenty of living space. And the small downstairs bedroom would be a perfect home office. Buyers are currently circling this property and there very well be offers submitted over the weekend. This home is next to the Southern California Edison substation that had stray voltage a few years back, but supposedly SCE fixed the problem. As a homebuyer, you want to investigate this however.
Have a great weekend and happy house hunting in the south bay!
