Los Angeles townhouse, 35' walk to beach

230 m2 townhome in an L.A. beach suburb of Torrance. Our gated community has a nice swimming pool. Walk to ocean in 35 minutes through a green residential neighborhood. Sandy beaches stretch from Palos Verdes to Santa Monica with a 25 miles long biking / walking path. Within a 10 - 20 minutes walk there are many restaurants, shops and the Del Amo Fashion Mall.

Our townhouse is comfortably furnished with a mix of newer and older modern furniture. A large, fully equipped kitchen has an attached family room opening into the dining and living rooms (plus a "powder room"). There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, each with its own bathroom and a walk-in closet. Downstairs is a bonus/guest room next to a 2 car garage and a laundry room. We have aircon, but thanks to ocean breeze it is needed only 2 to 5 days a year.

Downtown LA, Santa Monica, Getty museums, Universal Studios, Disneyland etc. are 15 to 30 miles away each, and we are 10 miles south of LAX airport. Public transportation does exist in LA, including Metro. It improved much in recent years, but a car is still more convenient here. In addition to LA's cultural and entertainment options, there is also plenty of nature around: the beaches of course, three mountain ranges (up to 3000 m high) above the city for hiking...

Lifestyle

Arts & culture, history, food & wine - and then mountain hiking or scuba diving to lose all that gained weight ;-)
For summer holidays, we like to string together 2 or 3 consecutive exchanges, between 4 weeks to 2 months in total length - preferably combining arts with nature, eg. a historical city stay + hiking. We succeeded in arranging that for the last 3 summers (French Alps with Barcelona plus a week hiking along the Cele river, Swiss Alps with Paris and Galicia... :-)
