New Redondo Beach CA MLS Listings

Exquisite Spanish Style Detached Townhouse for Sale
A number of really nice listings came on the market this week in North Redondo Beach 90278. And, if things go as they have been the past few weeks, these may be gone shortly after the weekend. I saw some of these properties at the Broker's Open House tour on Thursday and most will also be open this weekend. So, in no particular order, here we go.

1701 Clark Lane Unit B Redondo Beach 90278 (pictured) I was really prepared to think this one was over priced. Why pay the same for a resale when you can get new construction. But after previewing it I now think it is a great price. It is in a great location, you can easily bike and quite possibly walk to downtown Hermosa Beach. Well walk if like me you are committed to 10,000 steps a day (or more). The floorplan is quite unique. ANd if you are a fan o Spanish style townhomes, this unit has exquisite finish work throughout. It was built in 2006 but feels almost brand new and shows really well. Travertine floored entry, Living room with fireplace and doors to the private patio and grassy back yard, Formal sized dining room with ceiling chandelier and patio views, Culinary inspiring kitchen with stainless appliances, Magnificent master suite with fireplace and breezy balcony, Skylit spa-like master bath. A total of four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The versatile second floor family room has hardwood floors and a beautiful staircase leading to the unique city view roof top deck. Listed by South Bay Brokers and priced at $995,000. 2441 sq ft, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths. MLS SB14071823. Open Sat-Sun April 12th-13th 1-4 PM. Warning. If you see it you may fall in love and buy it!

Contemporary Remodel in the Golden Hills
1736 Haynes Ln, Redondo Beach Golden Hills. I found this property to be very unique for the neighborhood with a 2 story living room downstairs and all 3 bedrooms upstairs. I really liked the extra windows in the living room and the extra high 20 foot ceilings. So, even though it is a little smaller than other homes in the same price range, the unique floor plan and layout make it a winner for me. It doesn't really have any curb appeal but it's definitely not a drive by, you have to see it and come to your own conclusion. It is open this weekend as well and considering how quickly Golden Hills homes have been selling, blink and you'll miss it. This home was built on 1973 and has been extensively remodeled with espresso-stained cabinetry, quartz counters, glass tile backsplash and stainless appliances. Dramatic, dark hardwood floors extend throughout the living area downstairs. And, easy walking distance to Jefferson Elementary School in North Redondo Beach. Listed by RE/MAX Estate Properties for $829,000. MLS SB14070723. 1538 sq ft, 2502 sq ft lot. Did I mention all 3 bedrooms upstairs and walk to Jefferson Elementary?

INVESTOR FLIP

Investor Flip on Flagler
Wow. Talk about a quick flip job. After 2 days on the market 1506 Flagler Ln sold for $540K (with an additional $10K for repairs) and closed escrow on March 7th, 2014. Now it is back on the market as of April 10th for $799,900 all cleaned up and ready to go. Or as the listing agent advertises in the MLS:

"Fully remodeled inside and out this true turnkey, contemporary styled home will be something you'll love coming home to for years to come. Featuring exotic coastal maple hardwood floors throughout the open beamed living room and fully remodeled kitchen. Entertaining your family and guests will be a delight in the open kitchen with professional series gas range, quartz island top, pendant lighting, white subway backsplash, undercabinet lighting, freestanding range hood and chrome fixtures throughout. The bathrooms feature custom tile work, designer cabinetry, high efficiency fixtures, with a fabulous skylight shower upstairs with frameless glass. All new baseboards, casings, doors, light fixtures, door hardware, with beautiful new carpet featuring ½” thick padding. You will have plenty of room to enjoy with 4 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms combining for a total of 1,432 living sq ft. Awesome side yard with gorgeous new redwood fence, sod, sprinklers and landscaping. The attached and direct access 2 car garage with an extra off-street parking spot make parking here an ease!"  



At $799K with a 2500 sq ft lot you are at Golden Hills pricing in MLS Area 152 and most likely a slightly smaller house. But it is a SFR not a townhomes. Most likely this one goes quickly.

THREE ON A LOT TOWNHOUSE LISTINGS

Probably the hottest segment right now with the most turnover are 3 on a lot Redondo Beach townhomes in all ages, shapes varieties and configurations. It seems that every time I turn around prices on these units are up. Here's what hit the market this week:

3 on a lot Redondo Beach CA townhomes are in high demand
For the most part, newer ie post 2000 3 on a lots are selling in excess of $700K. The unit on Rockefeller is right next to, and I mean literally right next to, a huge power tower and is apparently listed at a discount as a result. The Vanderbilt property does not back up to the commercial buildings on Artesia, which is a good thing. I like the properties on Mathews and Grant. Mathews, like Vanderbilt can back up to commercial and some buyers think Grant is too busy. The nature of these 3 on a lots is that they are on either one way streets, busy streets, or streets backing up to commercial properties. Be that as it may, 3 on a lot Redondo Beach townhomes represent excellent value and turn over frequently.
