Most of the original homes were built in late 40's to mid 50's. However the majority of smaller homes have been torn down and replaced with larger homes within the last 12 years or homes in the trees will run $2,600,000-$3,750,000

That section of Manhattan Beach looks very rural with no sidewalks and large shade trees. It is very expensive to live in that area, but that doesn't reduce the demand ! Homes are in the 2-3M range.

The Manhattan Beach tree section is truly a lovely neighborhood. The area maintains a countryside feel as all streets have lots of trees and over the years the residents have rejected the idea of sidewalks to keep that rural flavor. Many homes in the area are within walking distance of downtown and Live Oak Park which is an added bonus.

Manhattan Beach is comprised of 4 primary sections, each with unique and appealing neighborhood amenities. The Tree Section has very strong family appeal, with quiet streets and a park-like setting. It's composed mostly of single family homes, with full lots starting at 40 ft X 112 ft. The tree section is located just east of the Sand Section, which has higher density living (with more apartments and townhomes). Every Manhattan Beach neighborhood has access to outstanding schools - some of the best nationwide.

Manhattan Beach in general is a very sought after area due to it's proximity to the beach, the beautiful weather, award winning schools and it's slightly shorter commute to LA than other South Bay areas. The city is broken into several "sections" with each having it's own appeal. The "tree section" is actually called this due to the names of the streets and not the abundance of foliage and rural feel, but it's appeal is due to several factors. The area is west of Sepulveda, a short distance to the beach, has a quiet and safe feeling to it, and it's possible to get a relatively large home do to a variety of lot sizes. Streets are generally narrow without much traffic and there is a nice mix of original homes as well as some of the newer, larger homes. Simply put, it's a great area to live and enjoy a real neighborhood feel just a short bike ride away from the beach.
