Manhattan Beach offers housing options from multi-million dollar mansions on the world famous “Strand” to wonderful cottages on tree lined streets. Manhattan Beach real estate is generally comprised of 5 very distinct “sections”. All of these neighborhoods are part of the award winning Manhattan Beach Unified School District but each has a very different atmosphere that appeals to people with varying priorities.
The sections are the Sand Section with many charming pedestrian only streets and the ever important proximity to the beach, the Tree Section with great family neighborhoods and tree lined streets, the Hill Section with breathtaking ocean views and breezes, the gated community of Manhattan Village, and the area east of Sepulveda Blvd known as East Manhattan. Click on each neighborhood to see what makes them different and to get valuable insight into the real estate options and benefits of each.Your online resource for Manhattan Beach homes and real estate.
