Torrance house description

Why stay in a cramped hotel room? Why pay $$$ for meals everyday?

If you are visiting family and friends or looking for a perfect weather vacation or are in L.A. for a work sojourn, 'Home Haven' is a place you will feel relaxed and away, yet “home” at the same time.

Just 2.5 miles from the ocean, Home Haven is the perfect property for your home away from home. It was remodeled this year so is fresh and new. Inside it has a rustic/modern, feel that adds up to current and cozy. With three bedrooms and two baths, it accommodates 7 people comfortably. You will find new beds with memory foam toppers for a restful sleep. The whole house is appointed with contemporary furnishings. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with tub and shower.


The open plan feels spacious and with the French doors thrown open to the backyard patio, as they are all summer in Southern California, you will find you have another “room”. If you are like us, this is where you will enjoy your morning cup of coffee and for dinner, savor a barbecued steak and a nice glass of wine! Outside there is a fire pit and of course, a gas barbecue.

You can enjoy a movie on one of our flat screen TVs in the living room, in the master or in one of the bedrooms or watch a video on the blue ray player. You will have access to Verizon Fios, Netflixs, Apple TV and an x-box 360. Alternatively, you can sit by the fire pit and roast marshmallows and listen to music on one of our MP3 players. In addition, we have a basketball hoop, tetherball, and a tree swing.

Do you love to cook? The kitchen is perfect for you. Stainless appliances including a gas range and double oven, and a fully stocked kitchen await our epicurean guests. Hate to cook? We will recommend the best take-out and delivery in our neighborhood.

The street is a quiet cul-de-sac located in the neighborhood of Hollywood Riviera just minutes from the beautiful Southern California beaches. It is an easy three minute walk to Sprouts to pick up some fresh fixings for dinner, to Walgreens and to our neighborhood sushi bar. Just a little further, you will find Ralphs, Whole Foods and Trader Joes.

There are lots of terrific restaurants nearby, both family friendly and more upscale spots for a special meal. Nearby, the Riviera Village is a dinning, and shopping destination with boutiques and bars and services just one block from the beach.

BEDROOM 1: sleeps 3
2 bunk beds and 1 XL twin

BEDROOM 2: sleeps 1 or 2
Twin bed with pop-up trundle to make Cal king

BEDROOM 3: Master sleeps 2
Queen bed

Come stay at Home Haven and enjoy the fun and California sun.


(Our home has been being remodeled for the last 6 months and as I post this it is being painted and landscaped in the front so check back for those photos by June 15. If you like the inside pictures you can be confident the outside will be as nice.)

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1999

                  About the owner: We are a family of 5 with 3 school age children. My husband is from upstate New York works in the aerospace industry. I am Canadian and have been a teacher and owner of a local foreign language school.

                  Why the Owner Chose Torrance:
                  We love the beach community and lifestyle. The weather is very comfortable near the coast and in particular where our house is located. Our house is in a small microclimate so we get more sunshine and less coastal fog then most places along the coast.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love this home because of the quiet residential street, and the friendly neighbors and because of the grand old pine tree in the front yard.
