Redondo Beach Golden Hills Real Estate for Sale

Tall and Skinny SFR Redondo Beach Golden Hills

Redondo Beach Golden Hills is comprised of approximately 2500 homes nestled north and south of Aviation Blvd. Most of these are Single Family Residences on 2500 SqFt lots. They are rather affectionately known as "Tall and Skinnies" and mostly feature reverse floor plans with the living room. dining room, kitchen, and master bedroom upstairs. It is common to find soaring cathedral ceilings upstairs. There are very small backyards and no front yards. Ironically, they look like townhomes but are, in fact, SFRs.

During 2015 there were 93 sales in the Golden Hills out of 533 total sales in North Redondo Beach 90278. There was huge price acceleration with many properties selling above the list price with multiple offers. We'll soon see if that trend continue into 2016.

The area north of Aviation has been referred to as the "Golden Triangle" because it forms a triangle (well sort of) bound by Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach CA. Boundaries are Aviation, Artesia, and Harper which is the boundary street between Redondo Beach and Hermosa Beach.

I probably get more Buyer inquiries regarding Golden Hills than any other neighborhood in North Redondo Beach CA. There's many reasons for this but front and center are:
  • Schools
  • Location
  • Neighborhood
Let's start with schools. Golden Hills is serviced by both Jefferson Elementary and Birney Elementary which are part of the Redondo Beach Unified School District (RBUSD). For many years Jefferson was the "Gold Standard" but recently Birney has come way up with an equal rating to Jefferson on the Great Schools website.

The location of the Golden Hills homes is excellent. For the most part, except for being adjacent to a main street with commercial and businesses, every location is great with some being better than others. Because many of these homes are built in hills (not very surprising) you have views of either the city or mountains or both. There may be one or two ocean view properties but this is not where you buy if that is what you want.

And the neighborhood is great with tons of very friendly people.

The only drawback is that parking is at a minimum. But it is the beach after all.
