Area 142 – Sand Section
Sand Section real estate is highly sought after, and even more so are the unique walk-streets found within the Sand Section. The flat walk streets in South Manhattan Beach are generally preferred over walk-streets located on the steeper sections of what once were rolling sand dunes. Walk-streets are portions of the Sand Section neighborhood that offer completely paved sidewalks on the front of the property, with garage parking at the rear, accessed by alleyway. Walk-street living is a social environment that is very connected with neighbors. Properly valuing Sand Section property takes an expert as values can swing drastically based on varying, complex criteria.
The North Manhattan Beach Sand Section has recently taken ownership of its location as a branded experience. North Manhattan residents have encircled the businesses and eateries located north of 31st St past Rosecrans Ave. as their own and have openly created the North Manhattan business district which includes what locals have always referred to as El Porto. El Porto is the area north of Rosecrans to 45th St. and has a high density of income properties.
