19915 Redbeam Ave in Torrance – $845,000

I previewed 19915 Redbeam Ave in Torrance today. (Brokered by Shorewood). Great location. House needs updating. The kitchen appliances all seem original. The house still has that seventies feel. But the benfits are a nice backyard with generous patio space, a veryu open floor plan downstairs, the master bedroom gets a lot of light and there is a main floor bedroom. If you’re in the market for a home in West Torrance in a great neighborhood, this could be it!
