When many home buyers start their Redondo Beach "House Hunt" they may only have differentiated between whether they are looking in North or South Redondo. As they get more educated, however, they may realize that within each of those zip codes there are further micro markets which in turn have their own pricing models and amenities.
So, let's start with the Redondo Beach Golden Hills which is one of the hottest and most desirable neighborhoods. The primary price driver here is that these homes are often the furthest west you can go in Redondo Beach. In fact many of these homes - particularly those located west of Aviation Blvd may be closer to the beach than homes in East Manhattan Beach. Additionally, some properties may have mountain or city views and an easy bike ride to the beach.
One such area is the "Golden Triangle" section of the Hills which sits just south of Manhattan Beach and east of Hermosa Beach. It is the furthest west location in North Redondo Beach.
The Golden Hills mostly offers "Tall & Skinny" Single Family Residences which are around 1900 SqFt of living area on 2500 SqFt lots. These homes often have reverse floor plans with the living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom found upstairs and two bedrooms found on the main level. Vaulted ceilings are common and many have original exposed wood ceilings. New construction in the Golden Hills has hit new highs with homes being priced at $1.5M and higher.
The El Nido neighborhood is located east and west of Inglewood Ave, south of Ripley and north of 190th street. There are many single family residences, (houses) on lots up to 7500 SqFt. Because of the lot size there were a number of 3000+ SqFt homes built there previously and expect to see more. The high end has topped out at around $1.6-$1.7M.
The easternmost properties, adjacent to Hawthorne Blvd and east of the train tracks, are actually City of Torrance with a Redondo Beach mailing address. That means that the schools and other services are Torrance.
The north east quadrant of MLS Area 151 is referred to as the TRW Tract. These are streets east of Vail, north of Robinson and south of Manhattan Beach Blvd. You will find single family houses here and some of the largest lots in North Redondo Beach.
Villas North and South
North and South refers to which side of Artesia Blvd the property is located on.
MLS Area 151 is north of Artesia Blvd and just east of Manhattan Beach. Villas South is located south of Artesia.
You can find everything starting with entry level condominiums, attached and detached 2 and 3 on a lot townhomes, mid century tract homes, up to luxury Single Family Houses.
