We always promise to let you know when a great opportunity is on the horizon . . . so we are pleased to present 17510 Roslin Ave in Torrance. This single family home is a rare find in the South Bay, offering a low-traffic location, a large, traditional home with classic lines and a private, sprawling yard, all under $800,000. Yes, you heard us . . .

What we love about his home:

LOCATION - Just when you thought you knew Torrance real estate, something surprising comes to the market! Tucked away in a rare, low traffic location on a quiet cul-de-sac in North Torrance is found this gem of a property! In a neighborhood where there are three cul-se-sacs in a row, the majority of traffic in your neighborhood is your neighbors. The house is situated with no neighboring windows looking into your yard, providing a VERY private outdoor experience. Far enough away from the freeways, yet close enough to be a convenience for those with a commute Within 4 miles of the beach, you still enjoy coastal breezes and quick access to the surrounding beach communities.

POTENTIAL - With classic late 1970's lines and high, vaulted ceilings, this home has a great original structure to work with over the years. Envision the wall along the breakfast nook and family room opened up with a panormaic door that instantly transforms the use of the private yard area beyond as outstanding transitional indoor/outdoor space. Then the kitchen could also be opened up with a center island and breakfast bar that compliments the transitional zone with a built in outdoor kitchen just steps beyond. The family room's brick fireplace could be whitewashed for a more beachy look and the room is instantly transformed! The master enjoys a large mirrored closet with an ensuite bath just beyond. The bath could be updated with higher countertops. Opening the door to the shower/commode area with a pony wall and a re-design of the walk-in shower could be a fairly budget friendly way to recreate this already great space. 

OUTDOOR SPACE - What you are getting with this home at this asking price is space. Coveted space. The cul-de-sac provided for irregular shaped lots that result in ample outdoor space. From the curb, you have a very traditional neighborhood approach with a sprawling lawn and a deep set-back. In the back, you have a large patio area, ready for an outdoor kitchen, fire feature and conversation area, a water feature in the corner, an above ground spa and enough room to consider a lap pool if desired. Otherwise, there is plenty of room to entertain and run and play. By opening the family room wall into a transitional indoor/outdoor zone, the home and yard will both feel that much more like an expanded living area.
