  • A piece of the Playa via Redfin / MLS.
It's not the most expensive residential listing in America, at least not in recent months. But it's close.

You can almost have your own beach right in Southern California if you can come up with a cool $100 million. The kind folks at Redfin pointed us to this new listing in Playa Del Rey:

6819 Pacific Avenue is three acres of prime, beach-side property that has 700 feet of ocean-facing views, according to the listing.

But before you start sketching out the blue prints for the ultimate bachelor pad, complete with tennis courts, an infinity pool, and a 10-car garage, consider the reality.

The land appears to occupy sand dunes.

We wouldn't be surprised if environmentalists will have something to say about whatever does or doesn't get built here. It's probably the natural habitat of the endangered, red-beaked bikiniwatcher. (We kid.)

The land is within the jurisdiction of the California Coastal Commission, which can add a whole 'notha level of bureaucratic hell to any home-improvement project.

And land this primo will probably be used for multiple residences and businesses. In fact, as the listing indicates, it's zoned for it:

Possible uses allow for high density commercial and multi-family zoning. Can permit hotel, condos, apartments or single-family uses.

The seller has taken the liberty of drawing up some sketches of what it might look like as one of those ubiquitous "mixed-use" developments featuring apartments or condos and street-level retail space.

That doesn't seem to mean, however, that you can't fulfill your San Simeon dreams if you have the cash.
