Ocean and harbor view condos in south Redondo Beach

The Village and Seascapes 1,2 & 3

The area of Redondo known as The Village, or Seascapes I, II and III offers the finest in resort living. Located near the Redondo Beach pier and a short walk to both King Harbor and the beaches of Redondo, these upscale condominiums offer a resort feel, and are the perfect home for those wanting to live close to the ocean. Often offering fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean, Catalina, and the beaches of Redondo the Seascape condominiums and townhomes boast pool and exercise facilities, a short walk to beaches, shopping and the pier. This is South Bay living at it’s finest.

There are endless reasons that the South Bay and Redondo Beach are great places to live, and without question the proximity to the ocean is one of them. Redondo Beach offers a wider variety of options than neighboring Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach as it’s zoned to allow higher density housing in some areas…..meaning larger condo complexes.

Some of the most ideal complexes are located in South Redondo Beach just off of Catalina and are known as the Village or Seascapes I, II and III. All of the Seascape Buildings are also known as the Village (they’re actually all on Catalina but the addresses are on The Village) All of the complexes have Homeowners Associations with relatively high HOA dues to cover the various landscaping, pools and some insurance, but if you’re looking for an affordable way to have a beach home, they may be ideal for you. All three buildings offer some fantastic ocean, Catalina, and harbor views and are centrally located just a short walk or bike ride to the beach, marina, restaurants and shops and parks. Keep in mind that some of my comments are just opinions on what is both good and bad about the buildings based on my observations and feedback from my clients.

The Village condos and Townhomes

The Village Condos and Townhomes in South Redondo Beach offer some of the most affordable oceanview condos and townhomes in the South Bay. Consisting of 323 units with the majority being condo style homes with a few townhomes in the southern most part of the complex.

The community offers studios, one bedroom and 2 bedroom condos located between 610 and 660 The Village as well as a few townhome in the 670-696 addresses.  The units are staggered so that all offer some ocean views from the condos or balconies.  The buildings consist primarily of one bedroom condos with each floor having 2 studios that are furthest from the water, and two 2 bedroom layouts that are always on the front of the building and offer the most direct ocean views.  View The Village floorplans.

Ideally located near King Harbor the proximity to the beach, King Harbor, Hermosa and Manhattan makes for a fantastic and active lifestyle.  The community offers a resort like feel with 2 fantastic pool areas, one for Village owners/renters and the other shared with the nearby Ocean Club (rental units), BBQ areas, firepits, state of the art fitness (part of the Ocean Club that owners/renters have access to) and an onsite market/restaurant.

seascape 1

Seascape One is actually located between Seascapes II and III and consists of 210-250 The Village. It was built in 1978 and is just east of King Harbor and the Redondo Beach pier. Many of the units have fairly unique windows that  allow for plenty of light and breezes. The smallest units are 1 bedroom 1 bath with around 577 square feet with
the largest units being 2 bedroom 2 bath with just over 1600 feet. Values depend primarily on the location and view as well as the upgrades that the owners have done over time.

  • Pros:  Location, location, location. Seascape I is central to everything and you truly don’t have to get in the car on the weekends. It’s directly adjacent to the marina and the Redondo Beach pier and has a large grassy park just outside your door. Some of the units are very nicely remodeled and some have tremendous ocean views (although those unblocked view units rarely come on the market) This is an affordable way to live by the beach or use a rental unit.
  • Cons: The complex is a little maze like and finding your way around isn’t always simple but this is not a challenge for the residents….only visitors. The complex also has shared laundry with a laundry room near the elevator on every floor. As each floor has it’s own laundry it is only shared by a few units so in general it isn’t a problem. Unlike Seacapes Two and Three the complex is not gated (although the parking, pool and the north side of the complex are)

seascape 2

Seascape 2 was built in 1980 and looks a bit more modern than Seascape I.

The units are much larger with the smallest one bedrooms just a bit over 900 square feet and the largest condos having 2 bedrooms plus a very good sized loft (with an additional balcony) and just at 1900 square feet. Seascape 2 consists of the buildings with 100-160 The Village addresses and is the furthest north of the oceanfront/oceanview buildings. The complex has a very nice pool area and is walkable to just about everything imaginable. Seascape 2 also has some townhome units with larger square footage and attached garages. Many/most of the units have been extensively remodeled and many have stunning ocean and harbor views.

  • Pros: Again the location is just ideal and the complex has a great second home or vacation feel. Higher floor units have some tremendous views and many have been very nicely upgraded.
  • Cons:  As with all of the Seascape buildings the HOA is quite high and the age of the buildings, coupled with their environment of sun and salt air, often make for additional assessments. HOA is also fairly restrictive as to what can be done to the units, but this can also be considered a positive for many.  As with all of the Esplanade and Village buildings, prices have gone up dramatically in the past few years due to the constant demand for oceanview and oceanfront properties

seascape 3

Built in 1980 Seascape III feels very similar to Seascape II with a slightly more “vacation” type feel. The condos are fairly large with the smallest 1458 square feet and the largest being the penthouse 2 bedroom with an ocean view loft and separate patio with slightly over 2000 square feet. This is the furthest south of the Seascape buildings but still walkable to everything.

  • Pros: Again the location is just ideal and the complex has a great second home or vacation feel. Higher floor units have some tremendous views and many have been very nicely upgraded.
  • Cons:  As with all of the Seascape buildings the HOA is quite high and the age of the buildings, coupled with their environment of sun and salt air, often make for additional assessments. HOA is also fairly restrictive as to what can be done to the units, but this can also be considered a positive for many.  As with all of the Esplanade and Village buildings, prices have gone up dramatically in the past few years due to the constant demand for oceanview and oceanfront properties
