Torrance CA Homes & Real Estate
Torrance is one of the largest cities geographically in the South Bay. Although Torrance does have a tiny bit of beach in the area of the Hollywood Riviera which is known as RAT beach (no, not rodents — it stands for Right After Torrance), for the most part Torrance homes for sale are less about the beach and more about affordable housing with great schools. It also has its own airport named after WWII hero
The area known as the Hollywood Riviera has Redondo Beach post office addresses but is really part of the City of Torrance; this area has lots of hillside Torrance homes with views of the Los Angeles basin or the Queen’s Necklace of the South Bay.
Torrance real estate consists mainly of single family homes built between 1940 and 1970, although the Old Torrance area has terrific Craftsman bungalows dating from the turn of the last century. A typical Torrance home is an approximately 1200 square foot 3 smallish bedrooms with a tiny 3/4 bath for the “master”, a nice sized, sunny living space, a galley style kitchen, and a large yard with lush plantings. Remodeling along the way, however, has resulted in lots of larger and remodeled homes, so be sure to look at what Torrance has to offer.
