Along Redondo Beach's Avenues west of PCH, new high sale prices were reached a couple of times in 2014.

So what's it like to visit the lighthouse?

On a recent visit, we found it to be a very low-key affair. Crowds were minimal. Youthful Coast Guard trainees provided most of the security onsite, as it were, helping to steer tourists to the…

In August, this 2009-build warm contemporary seemed to have set a new record for similar homes near the beach, but not quite on the Strand, along Manhattan Ave.

2437 Manhattan Ave. (5br/6ba, 3550 sq. ft.) sold for $4.000M.

From the description:

"Upon arrival you're mesmerized by the warm contemporary lines and exterior wood finishes on one of the most stunning homes in Hermosa Beach. This home built by LuAnn Development in 2009 lives up to its reputation throughout.
