Redondo Beach Oceanfront Condos

Needless to say that much of the appeal to the South Bay has to do with it's proximity to the ocean and all that it entails. Beautiful views, dazzling sunsets, warmer winters and cooler summers and outdoor activities of every variety. One of the cities most often thought of, especially for those relocating from other parts of the country, is Redondo Beach. Redondo Beach is the largest of the "Beach Cities" (Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach) and has the greatest number of housing options. Everything from a studio condo in the $300K range, to oceanfront estates well into the millions. If your searching for that dream of living oceanfront, you really only have a few options and almost all are on the street known as the Esplanade. The Esplanade is in the area known as South Redondo and has every housing option available. Some of the least expensive oceanfront options are the condos in one of several buildings.

531 Esplanade - Ocean Plaza

The first is located at 531 Esplanade and is known as the Ocean Plaza. This building features a pool, workout room and is located on the bluffs in South Redondo. Although oceanfront, most of the units at 531 Esplanade are at an angle and do not look straight out on the ocean. While you don't quite get the "right on top of the sand" feeling that you do in some of the other's generally priced a bit lower with larger homes. All units in 531 have some views with units higher up having more dramatic and unobstructed views. All units are accessible through the inside of the building which some owners like, but units are down a rather dark hallway.

575 Esplanade

  • Oceanfront units are rarely for sale at 575 Esplanade. Unlike the Ocean Plaza at 531 Esplanade, not all units are oceanfront or have views. Units range in size with units facing the street side, with no views starting in the mid $500K range and oceanfront units that have been upgraded being in the $1.3M range and up.

615 Esplanade - The Sand Castle

  • This building is known as the Sand Castle and is probably the most "right on the water" oceanfront building of any of them. The bottom two levels of the rear building somewhat obstructed or no views, but all other units and floors have panoramic ocean views. The Sand Castle really feels like a vacation and from the moment you open your door, it's breathtaking pacific ocean views. One bedroom units often start in the mid $500K range with a close to 800 square feet, with larger 2 bedroom units pricing in the high $800k to over $1.0 range. Units are accessible from the walkway in the rear (see below picture) which would be a problem if we had weather other than sunshine, but it does make for a much more open feel. If sleeping to the sound of breaking waves is what you're searching for....this might be the place for you.

625 Esplanade - San Simeon

  • The last of the main condo complexes in South Redondo is known as San Simeon and is located at 625 Esplanade. Many of the homes in San Simeon have breathtaking panoramic views although some units are towards the back with ocean peeks at best. Prices in San Simeon generally range from the low $700Ks to well over $1,000,000.
