Many buyers actively seek Torrance neighborhoods for the wonderful community feel, tree lined streets, great schools and family friendly vibe. Nowhere is this more embodied than in the Seaside Ranchos area of South Torrance.
The Seaside Ranchos neighborhood is often called the Christmas Lights area due to the annual show put on by the residents. Sitting just north of Pacific Coast Highway as it turns inland near the Palos Valos Peninsula the neighborhood is a collection of beautiful homes on larger lots. Most homes are generally updated and upgraded versions of the original beach homes built with fewer "McMansions" than in many other South Bay neighborhoods. The majority of the homes offer 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and due to the much larger lots than in most areas of Torrance often have fantastic backyards and is one of the most popular areas in all of Torrance.
The tree lined streets offer a very safe and friendly feel and give the area it's "Christmas Lights" nickname as all of the community trees are wrapped in white lights during the holidays and rare is the home that isn't decorated with lights and decorations. The area has become so popular during the holidays that traffic is restricted in the evenings and cars line up for seemingly hours to drive through the spectacular display. Prices generally start in the low $900s and can price over the $2.0M mark for some of the most impressive homes on oversized lots.
One of the newest communities in the South Bay is just nearby as well. One South in Redondo Beach at 1920 S Pacific Coast Highway in Redondo Beach offers a variety of condos and townhomes near Riviera Village shopping and dining.
