North Redondo Beach 4 Bedroom Detached 2 on a lot Townhomes for Sale

There are currently 7 detached 4 bedroom townhomes for sale in North Redondo Beach 90278. (Actually one is a 5 bedroom.) If you are following along in the MLS, and do a search on 4 bedrooms (and larger), you will come up with 8 results but while the home at 18424 Mansel has a Redondo Beach mailing address, that property is really in Torrance. Not exactly what this post is about so if you have questions about how that all works, call or email.

Currently, if you are buying or selling a 4 bedroom unit that is at least 2000 sq ft whether it is attached or detached the starting price is about $800K. Add more if the property was built after about 2003 or has amenities or upgrades not found in other units. The nicer examples are selling closer to $900K and new construction (none currently available in North Redondo Beach) is $1M or over.

Here's what the current inventory of detached 4 bedroom and larger townhomes looks like followed by what I think are the  Top 3"most interesting" listings.

2212 Marshallfield Ln Redondo Beach CA Unit A: This one just came on the market and I really like it. It was built by Casner in 2003 who I believe to be one of the best builders over the past 20 years in the South Bay. It is a front unit so there is both a front and rear exclusive use yard. It is a standard floor plan with the living room, dining room and kitchen downstairs and 4 bedrooms upstairs. The master has one of my favorite features - a dual sided fireplace (between the bedroom and bathroom). Other than that expect to see the usual high end finish work, recessed lighting, crown molding, stainless steel appliances, frameless shower in the master bathroom, stonework, etc. This townhouse is priced in the MLS at $900,000 exactly and truthfully, that is a fair price. At 2350 square feet, that pencils out to be about $383 sq ft which these days is reasonable. It is shown by appointment only. Listing Broker is Home Team Realty. MLS IN14009985. This is definitely my favorite this week!

2215 Ruhland Ave Redondo Beach CA Unit A: This one has been on the market for longer - over 60 days at the time of this post but with 5 bedrooms, built in 2006 and priced at only $899K, it is definitely one to consider. Or to put it another way, there are a lot of 4 bedroom townhomes around, 5's not so much. Oh, it's also really nice! Here's what the listing agent states in the MLS:

"This expansive, detached, 5-bedroom town home boasts a bright, open floor plan with a private grass yard/patio that is perfect for pets or summertime gatherings. The large, inviting kitchen, offering a center island and stainless steel appliances, flows into a spacious living room with beautiful cherry wood floors and a fireplace. The living/dining area leads directly to the outdoor living space. Each of the 5 bedrooms features a ceiling fan, while the luxurious master bedroom offers a huge walk-in closet and Jacuzzi tub. This lovely town home is ideal for raising young families and/or entertaining!! It is also located in a good school district, making it a must-see." Listed by RE/MAX Estate Properties. MLS SB13230501.

2007 Marshallfield Ln Redondo Beach Unit A: I'm including this one because it is a bank owned REO foreclosure listing and we don't see many of those in Redondo Beach these days. I believe that at $939,000 it is just a little over priced. This listing Broker, Coldwell Banker BH North, is from out of the area and if I recollect correctly, when this agent had an REO listing in North Redondo Beach last year it was also priced higher than the market. The good news is that the other one was eventually reduced and sold at the right price for the area.  Here's what the listing agent states in the MLS:

"Beautiful and spacious 4 BR,  2.5 BA townhouse. This unit is a stand alone home with a shared driveway. Inside you'll discover gleaming wood floors, gorgeous arched doorways plus a stacked stone fireplace in the living room. The eat in kitchen features gorgeous counters and cabinets as well as stainless steel stove and dishwasher. All 4 bedrooms are located upstairs including the large master suite with vaulted ceilings, fireplace and relaxing bath with separate shower and tub. The 4th BR is located off of the master and can function as a nursery or office. Located just a mile from the beach and close to shopping, dining and entertainment, this unique home is not to be missed. Info herein is not verified by agent. Buyer to verify all info & rely on their findings." MLS 13726001.
