This authentic beach cottage built in 1951, and located in prestigious South Redondo, has been lovingly maintained and updated for contemporary living. Step up to the charming front porch and into this captivating home with gleaming wood floors, newer windows, and a custom backyard perfect for entertaining. The spacious living room and formal dining area blend seamlessly to create an open concept space. A possible 4th bedroom has been opened up to enlarge the living area. The kitchen has granite counters, a large pantry, plenty of cabinet space, and a breakfast bar for casual dining. Two light and bright bedrooms have brand new carpeting and easy access to the oversized bathroom with a granite counter and a shower/tub combo with neutral white tile. Located in the rear of the house is the primary suite which has a double closet with a built-in organization as well as a nice-sized private bathroom. An extra-large laundry/utility room with shelving and cabinets is a perfect place for your washer and dryer, storage, and cleaning items. The detached garage is currently being used as a casual, expanded living and play space. With custom storage amenities, it’s a natural place for extra outdoor hobbies and beach gear. The rear yard was recently upgraded and features a natural gas fire pit surrounded by Appalachian flagstone and a custom wood pergola lit by soft café lights to create a cozy space for outdoor entertaining. For convenience, a gas line was installed near the dining area to make BBQing a breeze. Toward the rear of the yard are a grassy area and a separate garden with raised vegetable beds and an easily adaptable, ample watering system. A Canadian cedar shed is nestled next to the garden which could be improved to make it a custom space or kept as-is for gardening equipment. A reverse osmosis water filter in the kitchen, 50-gallon water heater, hot water timed heat loop from the water heater, solar powered Ring cameras and keyless entry front and back door are nice details that make this lovely home stand out.
