House Tales: South Redondo... 222 S Irena #C
South Redondo has some wonderful townhomes that are walking distance to the beach, Redondo Pier and Riviera Village. 222 S Irena #C, Redondo Beach is one of those great units . The home is 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 1352 square feet. It is one of the best priced townhomes in South Redondo at $624,500.
Like all homes... 222 S Irena Unit # C Redondo Beach has a special story to tell. I would like to share the story of this home with you....
This is the first home for the owners. One of the things they loved about the property was the location. The unit is on Irena which is a very wide street . There are gorgeous trees in front that give the home a sense of privacy... without losing sunlight. The deck has a peek of the ocean and a great view of Palos Verdes.
Good schools were very important as they have a young child. They are so happy that their home lies in the Alta Vista Elementary district. Alta Vista is a California Distinguished School and one of the top scoring schools in Redondo Beach.
My clients had looked for a long time before this property caught their eye. They really liked the idea that each bedroom had a private bath. They also liked the fact that there was a patio off each bedroom. The private patio has been a terrific place to set up an outdoor play area for children. They were also pleased by the "green" advantages of the unit. Living close to the beach means few weather extremes so their utility expenses are very reasonable.
My clients told me that they fell in love with the living area upstairs. The vaulted ceilings gave the living area a sense of spaciousness they had not found in other units. They also liked the great room design as it was perfect for their furniture. Another feature that really caught their eye was the office area off the kitchen. They love being able to have a separate space for their computers close to the living area.
The living area has two decks... one off the kitchen that is perfect for the BBQ... and the other off the living area where they can have coffee in the morning and catch the sunset in the evening. This is a feature they are going to miss.
Life is never static and always seems to bring changes. Such is the case for my clients. My clients have family moving to the South Bay from Europe and may be living with them. This means that they are going to need a new house... one with a large guest room and a yard for a much desired pet by a certain little girl.
They are going to miss this home... it was their first home together... and they have had wonderful times here. They have put a lot of upgrades into their home... beautiful hardwood flooring and a terrific kitchen. Their new additions bring a smile each time they walk in the door and see the changes they have made. They will miss the lights from the hills of Palos Verdes twinkling in the evening. They will miss being able to walk to the beach in just minutes. They have been going every afternoon now that school is out.
If this sounds like a home that might be exactly what you are looking for give me a call (310)721-7438 or e-mail me to arrange an appointment. I think you will agree it is one of the best properties in South Redondo at this price.
