Currently there are 21 homes in the city of Torrance that are priced higher than this formerly elusive price. If you factor in homes in the homes for sale in the Hollywood Riviera, which has a Redondo Beach mailing address but is actually in the city of Torrance, there are actually 28 homes price over $1,000,000 with 5 homes priced over $2,000,000.

Suddenly the Whole Street is On Sale – Camino De Encanto in the Hollywood Riviera

By Keith Kyle

It’s not often that we see homes come on the market in the lower Hollywood Riviera neighborhood that’s west of Palos Verdes Blvd.  Occassionally we see a home or two and more often than not, there is nothing on the market in this area.

That certainly couldn’t be further from the case at the moment as there are 4 homes for sale on Camino De Encanto in the Hollywood Riviera.

There are current 4 homes on the market and all are within a 1/2 block.  This is pretty unheard of an probably not ideal for any of the homes as when buyers have options….they want to negotiate.

433 Paseo De La Playa – One of a Kind Home for Sale in the Hollywood Riviera

433 Paseo De La Playa is definitely one of a kind. Perched on the bluff with stunning ocean and coastline views, the home is like something usually seen in Beverly Hills or Bel Aire….not Redondo Beach and Torrance.

Boasting 7 bedrooms (all spacious), 6 1/2 baths, 7,792 square feet on a massive 25,000+ lot that extends to the beach this home has it all…..sports court, gated driveway, ocean view pool and spa (with a mini waterslide) and huge views from many of the rooms.  The home even features a oversized path down to the sand which is rare as the California Coastal Commission highly regulates direct access to the beach and the permitting process (if approved) can take years and years.

The Hollywood Riviera is a fantastic neighborhood with a small town community charm, highly ranked schools and often times some great ocean views.
