Welcome to the beautiful tree section of Manhattan Beach. The tree section offers homeowners a real neighborhood feel with tree lined streets, quiet neighborhoods, beautiful homes and so much more. Most of the area is served by Pacific Elementary School with some pockets attending other schools. This is a great area with a combination of older, original homes as well as a seemingly endless number of new construction homes due to it being very popular with builders.
Despite the fact that this area has far more trees than other parts of the South Bay, the “tree section” is actually called this due to the names of the streets. Streets like Elm, Oak, Poinsettia, Palm and Pine are just a few. The area enjoys more of a family neighborhood feel than the area directly to the west known as the Sand Section. Streets are generally a bit quieter and there is more room between houses and the area enjoys relatively flat and quiet streets. The area is intersected by a strip known as the green belt which is home to joggers, walkers and dogs out for a stroll. The homes in the tree section of Manhattan Beach are fairly diverse with a great deal of larger new construction homes in the $2.0M and up range, and many original homes that keep the area from looking too overbuilt. The elementary school for most of the area is award winning Pacific Elementary and the area is close enough to the beach to enjoy warmer winters and cooler summers and is just a short bike ride to the coast.
