Newest Listing in Hollyglen – 2 Bed Townhome in the Gated Community of Fusion

New 2 Bedroom Townhome hits the market in Fusion

5406 w 149th Pl #14 - Listed for $929,000

For those home buyers out there struggling to find something in the Hollyglen neighborhood of Hawthorne, there is a new townhome listing in Fusion South Bay that  just recently hit the market.  5406 w 149th Pl #14 is a beautifully updated 2 bedroom  E floorplan townhome in the gated communty of Fusion  and is priced at $929K.  The E layout is a fairly popular floorplan as most spaces and rooms are fairly large and the living room offers high ceilings giving it wonderful natural light.

This fantastic multi level townhouse has been extensively updated and is not your typical original builder finishes.  Updates include Miele appliances including an incredible display fridge/freezer/wine display, cabinetry upgrades with custom storage, quartz countertops, 6 burner stove, hardwood floors and more.  The home has a 2 car attached garage below the main living area.  The only detractor of this unit is the location as it overlooks the So Cal Edison power substation and the various industrial looking towers and wires just outside the balcony/deck.    The owners of the unit and the community have done an admirable job in hiding it with landscaping but it’s definitely hard to ignore.

Fusion South Bay definitely lacks the resort level amenities of Three Sixty but HOA dues and prices are lower.

As with all condos and townhomes in Fusion, the home has central A/C and is part of the award winning Wiseburn School District.

Townhome Info

  • 2 bedrooms

What Are the Main Differences Between Three Sixty and Fusion?

The gated communities of three Sixty and Fusion

What are the similarities and differences?

We are often contacted by home buyers interested in both the gated community of Three Sixty as well as Fusion South Bay.  Many have just a basic understanding of the two communities and what each has to offer.  The two communities have a very different look and vibe.  Three Sixty has a real feeling of community with multiple social areas, people always around walking dogs or just going for a stroll…..Fusion has a bit more of a younger commuter feel.  This is still a great community feel, but overall it feels a bit more like an area where most are off to work during the day.  They are quite a bit different so here’s rundown of some of the similarities and differences:

Similariities

  • Both communities are gated complexes
  • Both are served by the highly ranked Wiseburn School District
  • Both are built after 2005 and still have a fairly new feel to the interiors
  • Both offer A/C in all of the homes, townhomes and condos
  • All homes have private garages
  • Both communities have pool/jacuzzi areas
  • Both are great for commuters with freeway access very close by

Differences

  • Prices:  Three Sixty is generally considerably higher priced (for similar square footage) than Fusion.
  • Variety of Home types:  Three sixty has a much larger variety of homes and styles.  They have single family style detached homes, townhomes and single level condos.  Fusion also has different layouts but not the same variety
  • Fusion only has 2 and 3 bedroom homes.  Three Sixty ranges from studios to  4 bedrooms
  • Amenities & Facilities:  While Fusion has a nice pool and spa, small basketball court and small playground…they have the typical feel of gated communties…nice but nothing uncommon.   Three Sixty, on the other, has a true resort feel.  This is more like life on vacation with an incredible pool deck with lap pool, fun pool and jacuzzi, BBQ area, community firepit, hotel style lounges (even some cabanas), incredible clubhouse with flatscreen TVs, pool and more.  There are also 2 dog parks (big dog/little dog) grassy park areas, playground and paddle tennis/basketball courts.  In addition they have a legitimate fitness center with all the bells and whistles of a great gym.
  • Community:  As mentioned above the two communities just feel a bit different.  Fusion’s location is great but due to it’s size (much smaller than 360) and difference of amenities it just doesn’t have the same neighborhood feel.  People really seem to know other residents in 360 and that isn’t quite as much the case in Fusion.
  • On site management:  360  has an on site manager/office.  Fusion does not have an onsite manager
  • Size:  Three Sixty is much larger with over 600 homes while Fusion has 280 homes.  The layout of the communities is much different as well.  Fusion is in the shape of an L so it’s long and narrow….360 is more of a large triangle which allows for the community center and pool areas to be more of a hub and gathering spot as everything is centered around those two areas.

Hawthorne Real Estate Recap – January Home Sales By Numbers

Hawthorne real estate market by the numbers

It’s time to look back on the real estate market in Hawthorne for January 22.  It was a fairly slow month for real estate and home sales in Hawthorne CA.  The first month of the year saw only 14 total on market home, townhome and condo sales.  The median sold price was $875,000 and an average days on market was a pretty brief 27 before going into pending status.

Of the 14 homes that sold during the month, only 3 were in Hollyglen and of those 2 were in the gated community of Three Sixty South Bay.  There were no closed sales in the other Hollyglen gated community of Fusion.  One of the home sales in 360 was a record setting condo sale in the Flats at 13032 Union  #303 and the other was yet another record setting sale….this time of the smallest residence 1 floorplan in the Terraces at 5245 Pacific Terrace that closed at an amazing $1,455,000. See how that  compares to other months on our Hawthorne real estate trends page.

What Does 2022 Real Estate Hold in Store for Hollyglen?

What the 2022 real estate market in Hollyglen and del aire looks like

2021 was quite a year for real estate and home sales in Hawthorne. Record prices, incredible buyer demand and low interest rates made for a busy year. The market was driven by the community of Three Sixty South Bay which set records with just about every home sale. No longer is Hollyglen a neighborhood people consider when they can’t buy in El Segundo or Redondo…..it’s not a highly coveted place to live.

2022 doesn’t look to be much different and we’re anticipating another year of record sales and record home prices. Much will be determined by the housing inventory and whether more home sellers in Hawthorne decide to list and sell their homes. As of 1/11 there are only 2 homes for sale in Hollyglen and only 17 homes for sale in all of Hawthorne. Unless that increases dramatically it’s going to be another great year for sellers and an even tougher year for home buyers.

The chart below shows the past 2 years with the light green bar being active homes for sale, red line being homes in escrow and the dark green bar showing the number of sold homes each month. Click here to see other Hollyglen real estate trends and statistics.
