Something relatively unique to Manhattan Beach real estate and HermosaManhattan Beach walkstreet homes Beachare the homes located on “walk streets”. These walkstreet locations offer the absolute ideal in community beach living as they are located on lots that have parking and garage at the back of the home and the front of the home sits on a pedestrian only sidewalk.  According to Keith Kyle, a top realtor  with Vista Sotheby’s International, “These walkstreets offer a sense of community that is a bit different than other areas.  As the front yards and patios all face the sidewalk the walkstreet often becomes the center of the community for these streets.  They are very family friendly as there isn’t the risk that busy streets and cars create so it has a very safe feeling.  As they are almost always located within a block or two of The Strand and the beach it has that old school beach community feel”.

Walkstreets are very limited and are only in the sand sections of both Hermosa and Manhattan Beach.  They range in size due to the contours of the streets they cross but all create a very community and family friendly environment and are some of the most sought after locations in the South Bay.  Prices in Manhattan Beach generally start around $3.0M (usually on a corner of a walkstreet and moderately busy street) andquickly go up from there and prices are now reaching into the high $5.0M range for homes with big views and closest to the beach.  Homes in Hermosa Beach start in the mid $1M range (some homes have unusual situations such as no garage, small lot, etc) to the new high water market of $5.25M for the home mentioned above at 41 16th Street.  In Hermosa Beach the streets are generally flat so views are not something overly common, but that’s not the case in Manhattan Beach where the slope of the hill often means just about every home enjoys some nice ocean views.
