Built by Clifford Reid, Developer of the Hollywood Riviera, This Gracious, One-of-a-kind Home Boasts a Historic Pedigree and Simply Cannot Be Reproduced

This early Spanish Revival-style residence, originally crafted by noted South Bay developer Clifford Reid in 1930, is akin to taking a page from a history book. Among the first homes built in the South Bay’s Hollywood Riviera in Redondo Beach, it once belonged to renowned actress Rosemary DeCamp and her husband, Torrance Superior Court Judge John Shidler. Now on the market, this iconic property is considered by many to be a jewel of the Riviera.

“This is one of the most significant properties in the Hollywood Riviera, both from a historical and design perspective and unmistakable for all who enter is the sense that they are in a grand and accommodating home,” says listing agent Igor Nastaskin of RE/MAX Palos Verdes Realty.

“Aside from the very first home built in the area in 1928 by Clifford Reid for his family at 124 Via Monte D’Oro, which is 6,750 square feet, I believe this is the second-largest of the original homes built in that era.”

Located in the lower Hollywood Riviera, just a short walk from Riviera Village and the beach, the home offers panoramic ocean views. Expect 4,000-plus square feet of living space on two levels, complete with five bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, and grand living and family rooms.

Among the highlights: a light-filled upstairs sunroom that opens to a deck with wonderful ocean views and breezes. Outdoors, the 7,801-square-foot lot features a newly built pool and spa, along with a gated courtyard surrounding a tranquil Spanish fountain.

“The property has had many upgrades over the years, but still maintains its Old-World charm, with arched doorways, Spanish tile accents, wood beam ceilings, and other reminders of its elegant history,” says Igor Nastaskin. “This is a rare opportunity to live in a great home of architectural significance and style.”
