One of the best kept secrets in the South Bay is the Hollywood Riviera section of Torrance and the ‘way back’ connection to Hollywood. Homes in the area are located on the slopes of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and many have incomparable coastline views. There are 180-degree views that can include the ocean, beaches, mountains and city lights of numerous cities across the Los Angeles basin! This is the city of Torrance, but it’s zip code is that of Redondo Beach. The area is located between Redondo Beach and Palos Verdes Estates and extends the city boundaries to the ocean where the County owns and operates a lifeguard tower and a parking lot at the shoreline. The residents of Hollywood Riviera are part of the award winning Torrance school district.
Back when the original developer first had the thought about building homes in the area now called Hollywood Riviera, his idea was to get the then Hollywood trend setters and stars to consider this area to live in and grow from there.
Today, the ‘Riviera’ has wonderful older traditional single family homes, condominiums, town homes, and even some apartments, especially down the hill closer to PCH and to the beach south of Riviera Village. Riviera Village has retail shops, specialty shops, restaurants, coffee cafes, grocery stores, medical and professional services and other offices and services.
In summary, there are Hollywood Rivera homes with spectacular ocean views, and homes that are situated on hilly, quiet rural-like streets. Housing prices will vary according to location, size, age, etc., and offer prices to fit just about all budgets. There is something for everyone in the Hollywood Riviera, including peace, privacy and much seclusion if that is what you are looking for in a home.
