Los Angeles is a sprawling city, with a bustling economy, and makes major contributions to entertainment, culture, fashion, science, sports, technology, education, and medicine. It’s also contains very diverse geography, property, and real estate opportunities. One of the most sought after property hubs in Los Angeles is the Greater South Bay area. Found here are some of the most beautiful homes available to buyers today.
The cities in the Greater South Bay are very representative of what many people might consider to be “Classic Californian”. There is a lot of surfing, sprawling beaches, and incredible views. However, there is much more to these cities than simply how beautiful they are on a daily basis.
Known by many as the “Pearl of The South Bay”, Manhattan Beach is an affluent beach down with a variety of real estate options available to homeowners and investors. There are miles of white sandy beaches, well-kept tree-lined streets, all contained within a charming small town feel. If you’re simply visiting, this is a great vacation destination, since there are plenty of award-winning restaurants, and a surprisingly fun nightlife! Manhattan Beach is also well known in the beach volleyball community, since this is the city that started it all.
In terms available real estate, there are 5 different areas of the city: East Manhattan, Manhattan Village, The Hill Section, The Sand Section, and The Tree Section. Each presents a unique style of homes and surrounding local attractions. The entire city of Manhattan Beach has nationally recognized schools, meaning your children will get an outstanding education attending around here. Manhattan Beach has certainly aged well, making it a very modern beach city.
Just south of Manhattan Beach, you’ll find the quaint Hermosa Beach. Accommodating to both families and singles, this area of Los Angeles is a hidden pocket that not many people know about. Even during the summer months, you’d be surprised at how open and spacious the city feels, and this is partly due to the very large, clean and accessible beaches.
If you’re looking to purchase real estate here, you’ll be hard pressed to find something that isn’t lovely. You can find a number of properties right along the beach, and even further inland, along the ‘greenbelt’ walking trail, there are homes and apartments that anyone would be impressed by.
Separating Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach property from the beach is the Marvin Braude Bike Trail, which is more commonly known as The Strand. This pedestrian and bicycle path runs directly alongside the beach, and the property on the opposite side is some of the most beautiful (but high-priced) in all of Los Angeles. The Strand helps unify the Greater South Bay beach cities, and lets tourists and residents safely commute between them without needing to worry at all about cars or motorcycles.
If you’re interested in exploring real estate throughout the South Bay, make sure you reach out to an experienced real estate agent who can show you the area. This is a very desirable market, so you want to find an agent with years of experience and local connections that can help you find the house of your dreams.
