Property description

Casa Colinas was the first model home built in the scenic Hollywood Riviera section of Redondo Beach, CA. The 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath, 3100 square foot home was built in the late 1920s using one of old Hollywood's famous architects and the finest craftsmanship of the era.

Hand stenciled wood ceilings, amazing wrought iron work, original lighting fixtures preserve the character of the original design, while a major renovation adds the comfort and technology of today.

Hollywood Riviera was started in the 1920's by Clifford F. Reid. This ocean-view hillside development was intended to attract the film stars and producers of the 1920's to come live at the beach. It was named Hollywood Riviera because the climate and the hillside views reminded Reid of the French Riviera. The stock market crash of 1929 halted the development and for that reason, there are only 14 original Spanish Revival homes scattered throughout the area. This home was one of the first and affords a prime location in the Riviera.

The living room has a dramatic wood ceiling with original stenciling and hand hewn wood beams. A step down through an arched doorway leads to the professionally designed home theater with a 100' projection screen and incredible surround sound. On the other side of the living room is a step down to the dramatic fireplace room and continuing to the 'secret room' hidden behind a bookcase that was used during prohibition.
Stepping up from the living room and through an arched hallway leads to the dining room with original stenciled wall panels, decorative moulding and a wood-paneled ceiling. Walk out the french doors in the dining room, and you can experience the serenity area with wrap around seating, bubbling fountain, and Moroccan lanterns. Relax and enjoy the view of the bamboo wall and bougainvillea climbing up the original ironwork.

The full chef's kitchen has a 48' professional stove, drawer dishwasher in the island for glasses, regular dishwasher, warming drawer, prep sink, custom African mahogany cabinets, Carrera marble counter tops and a Verde Fantastico granite topped island. There is a sun filled breakfast room off the kitchen.

The fully landscaped backyard has a comfortable seating area with gas fire-pit , 8 foot antique mirror, dining table, lounge chairs, BBQ , fountain surrounded by an herb garden, lemon and lime trees, rose garden, and a sunken hot tub.

There are three bedrooms. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and bathroom ensuite with a rain shower, side jets, handheld, and regular shower heads. Upstairs has two bedrooms, the master bedroom with a king bed and a ocean view balcony. The second bedroom has two twin beds and large flat screen TV . These two rooms share a bathroom with a steam shower, rain shower and additional side jets. There is also a luxurious separate tub room with a deep free standing jetted tub and an ocean view. The theater downstairs can also be converted for additional sleeping arrangements.

The home is fully automated and has speakers in every room and outside with a large library for music, satellite radio, and an iPod dock.

We are conveniently located three blocks from the beach and less than two blocks to Riviera Village to enjoy world class restaurants and shopping.
