Tract of Redondo Beach
my buyers clients looking to be as close to the beach as possible
almost always realize that compromise is a requirement at
some stage of their search. Many of my buyers decide that
the price is right in North Redondo Beach with a variety of
housing choices, good schools, and proximity to the coast
which is why we all want to live here. What many aren't as
fond of in North Redondo is the "feel" of the neighborhoods
with single family homes next to newer 3 on a lot townhomes,
next to original duplexes, next to apartment buildings. Due
to the lot sizes and zoning some of the streets and areas
don't necessarily have the residential neighborhood feel.
One exception is the pocket known as the TRW Tract which was
named after the TRW complex just up the street which has since
become Northrup Grumman.
in the TRW tract were generally built in the 1940s after
the war and generally ranged from 900 - 1400 square feet.
What makes the area unique is that the lots are fairly
large for the South Bay and Redondo Beach generally around
6500 square feet but due to stricter zoning they have
primarily remained smaller single family home. This has
created and allowed a very nice neighborhood feel with
tree lined streets, limited "McMansions", and no real
townhome or apartment buildings.
of Large TRW Backyard
of the homes in the TRW tract have very large yards with
most lots having 6500 square feet or more. While duplex
properties are very unusual many homes have permitted
guest homes or rooms attached to garages towards the rear
of the property. Many of the homes in the area are still
in original condition but with the boom in real estate
a few years back many homes were upgraded and expanded.
The neighborhood is served by two nearby elementary schools
which are Lincoln and Madison.
generally range between the mid to high $800,000s for
smaller 2 bedroom fixers to the high $1,500,000+ for large
"mansionized" homes on better streets. The area
is a great option for home buyers looking for a real neighborhood
feel with nearby parks and schools and quiet streets.
