Welcome to the Hollywood Riviera, the best kept secret in Southern California and one of the most desirable places to live in the world. Perfect weather, fresh air, and the beautiful Pacific Ocean are an everyday pleasure for those of us who live in the Hollywood Riviera. With its beach-front location, charming Riviera Village shopping area, and tree-lined streets, the Hollywood Riviera section of Torrance is a quiet enclave of homes tucked away against the sloping hillside of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Take a stroll through the Riviera Village to shop or dine and you’ll see neighbors greeting neighbors in the friendly Hollywood Riviera community. Because of its removed location, the Hollywood Riviera escapes much of the pass-through traffic and congestion the neighboring South Bay communities endure as commuters travel to freeways and other cities.
If you’re looking to buy or sell a home in the Hollywood Riviera or any other South Bay city – including the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach or Manhattan Beach – you’ve come to the right place. I live in the Hollywood Riviera and for more than a decade I’ve represented more buyers and sellers in the Hollywood Riviera than any other Realtor.

HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD RIVIERA
The Hollywood Riviera, the iconically gorgeous area adjacent to Torrance, South Redondo Beach and Palos Verdes Estates, remains much like it was when Clifford F. Reid originally developed this parcel of 604 acres back in 1927. In Clifford F. Reid’s eye, the area looked similar to the French Riviera, which he had visited on vacation.
Clifford F. Reid was also entranced by the movie industry, and envisioned the Hollywood Riviera area south of Redondo Beach as being a natural set location for the Hollywood silver screens – hence the name Hollywood Riviera was born. The first home in the Hollywood Riviera was Clifford F. Reid’s own, a stately Italian-Mediterranean mansion constructed in 1928 on Monte D’Oro, and still a beauty.
In 1930, The Hollywood Riviera Beach Club was constructed at the site where Miramar Park (also called Dolphin Park for the dolphin statues) now sits. The Hollywood Riviera Beach Club was destroyed in a fire in 1955, which is why the beach area just below Miramar Park is often called “Burn Out” by locals.
Though the Great Depression left the Hollywood Riviera in limbo through the mid-1930s, the end of the World War II brought an increase in development as more homes were built. Today, the Hollywood Riviera is a jewel of the South Bay, with gorgeous ocean view homes, perfect weather, and a friendly community that thousands are proud to call home.
