If you want to live the Manhattan Beach Lifestyle, then the Hill Section is most likely your destination. Wider streets, a spread out feeling of nearly 1,000 homes. The styling, or architecture is most likely Mediterranean, Craftsman and Plantation. The Hill Section obtained its name from the simple fact that it is on a hill; many might say one of the most aesthetically astonishing and residentially desirable hills in the World.
The Climate. A Mediterranean-type climate with mild temperatures, year round.
Accessibility. Located just a few miles from LAX, the area is an easy commute to the business district of Downtown Los Angeles and Century City. Also conveniently located nearby are the training facilities of the Los Angeles Lakers, L.A. Kings and Clippers, as well as the many business parks related to the aerospace industry.
Location. A walk or stroll to the beach is an absolute breeze, and a good portion of the Hill Section is in close proximity to the great shops and restaurants in down-own Manhattan Beach. One of the summer’s highlights is the Jose Quervo Manhattan Beach Open (Professional volleyball players from all over the world.) Bring your hat, sun-screen and chair!
