As part of our ongoing tour of South Redondo Beach real estate, today we take a look at one of the oceanfront condominium complexes in South Redondo Beach known as The Sand Castle. The Sandcastle is located at 615 Esplanade. The Sand Castle consists of two buildings with panoramic ocean views from both (the exception is the 5th floor which is actually the 1st floor of the rear building. The 5th floor does have views but overlooks the roof of the front building so no sand or wave views which makes that location more affordable and less valuable). The Sand Castle has 96 units of which most are 1 bedroom with 719 square feet. The layout has the bedroom in the back with the kitchen in the middle overlooking the living room in the front. As mentioned above most units directly overlook the sand and surf making this a great place to own as a beach house, rental unit, or vacation home.
There are a few larger units but sales are very rare with the last 2 bedroom selling in 2007 for $772,500 and a very unique 4 bedroom penthouse (was originally 2 2 bedroom unitsthat were combined) selling in 2010 for over $1.5M. The larger 2 bedrooms are only top floor units (both buildings) so views are unbelievable. One bedroom units have sold for a low of $335,000 for a bank owned on the 5th floor (limited views) to over $600,000 for a remodeled oceanfront unit.
