Redondo Beach

Redondo Beach is a community surrounded by the adjoining cities of Hermosa Beach, Palos Verdes Peninsula and Torrance. It is the largest of the three South Bay beach cities and is divided into two sections, North Redondo and South Redondo.

Residents of South Redondo enjoy easy access to the beach. People can be seen strolling on “The Esplanade” which runs along the ocean front. Cyclists and joggers have access to the bike path making it is possible to cruise all the way to Santa Monica, have lunch and then return to Redondo Beach in time for drinks on the Pier while enjoying the setting sun.

Pacific Coast Highway winds its way through the town and offers many opportunities for shopping and dining. Bristol Farms, Whole Foods and Starbucks are just a few of the upscale choices available here. The popular diner “Eat At Joes” is where the locals go for a hearty breakfast and conversation is always animated at the communal dining tables. There are multiple choices for fine dining at the many bistros lining PCH offering food for every taste.

The Redondo Pier has the feel of a bygone era with many restaurants including the legendary “Old Tonys”. Customers have felt the surf crash against the pier pilings while enjoying a fish dinner for over 50 years. Fishermen line the pier railings trying their luck with rod and reel hoping to catch something to take home for dinner. Adjacent to the pier is King Harbor which is home to hundreds of sail boats and The Portofino Inn featuring ocean view rooms for out-of- town visitors.

Housing choices in South Redondo include ocean-front condos, newly built townhomes and ocean view single family homes on tree-lined streets. Prices range from $450,000 for a studio condo at “The Village” to $3,500,000 for a newly built 5000 square foot single family home with ocean view on a tree-lined street.

North Redondo is the choice of many residents because of its proximity to the freeway making commuting easier. The location, a bit inland, helps moderate property prices and is a frequent choice for first time buyers trying to get a foothold in a beach community.

Artesia Blvd. is the main shopping area with lots of restaurants and coffee shops. The South Bay Shopping Center on the eastern edge of the area offers plenty of shopping, movie theatres and more dining opportunities including Islands and Panera Bread.

Home prices in North Redondo range from $550,000 for a two bedroom townhome with attached garage to $1,900,000 for a newly built, 3500 square foot single family home with a real backyard. Another choice is a newly-built, freestanding townhome for $1,400,000.

Sacrificing proximity to the ocean for more square footage and a newer home is a frequent choice of buyers here. You get a little more home for your money in North Redondo but are still close to all the South Bay has to offer.
