The highest priced closed home sale in Torrance during the month of September was located at 5531 Laurette which closed escrow at $1,885,000. It was located in the neighborhood of Southwood which is the area between West Torrance and South Torrance. Usually the highest priced sales are either in South Torrance or the ocean view homes in the Hollywood Riviera so this was a bit unusual. The home was a nicely remodeled 5 bedroom 5 bath single family home with a little over 4,000 square feet. What made it more special was the massive (for South Bay standards) 16,000+ foot lot that backed up to Wilderness Park. Much of that was hillside but it was still massive compared with the usual 5,000 foot +/- lots in Torrance. View all of the homes that sold in Torrance during September 2020
