South Torrance, which is located just north of the Palos Verdes foothills and just east of Redondo Beach, is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in all of Torrance. It’s close enough to the beach to get the cool ocean breezes, but is often spared from the early summer fog making it just about ideal. The area offers great schools and a real “community” feel with tree lined streets, appropriately sized home (few McMansions) and a friendly vibe.
One of the highlights is a tract known as Seaside Ranchos which is locally famous as the “Christmas Lights” area every December. This neighborhood also has some very large lots meaning unique homes with incredible outdoor areas.
As with all real estate in the South Bay, home prices and values have gone up considerably in the past few years.
