Manhattan Beach Tree Section Real Estate

tree section manhattan beach

The Tree Section got its nickname from its "tree" street names: Pine, Elm and Palm among them.

But it's also got a notable tree canopy in some areas, making the area feel much further away from the beach than it actually is.

Many pockets of the Tree Section offer good walkability to school, parks, downtown and even the beach. 

With Manhattan Beach Tree Section real estate, lots are typically around 4500 square feet (commonly 4480 or 4800), which means yards can be on the small side. Even with those lot sizes, you can actually have a bit of a back yard, which is less common in the Sand Section.

You’ll notice that many of the streets have no curbs or sidewalks. Street parking is free and usually adequate.

Just like the rest of Manhattan Beach, the Tree Section is constantly in transition. You will find a few original bungalows built in the late 1940s to mid 50s. Most have been remodeled over the years to add square footage or to update the kitchen and bath. In the last 30 years, many of the original Manhattan Beach homes have been replaced with new, 2-story homes designed to maximize the livable square footage permitted on the lot. Development runs in cycles, so you don't see uniformity from block to block in the Tree Section. You're more likely to have a street where neighboring homes' build dates span 70 years.

Children living in the Tree Section go to either Pacific Elementary or Grand View Elementary, depending on where their house is located. (Homes north of Valley/Ardmore are districted to Pacific, as are homes north of Valley but east of Pacific Ave. Meanwhile, homes north of Valley and west of Pacific are a close walk to Grand View, the home district of that pocket.)

For middle school and high school, all Manhattan Beach public school students go to Manhattan Beach Middle School and Mira Costa High School.

There are several distinct areas of the Tree Section. It's easy to break it up into 4-6 subsections or micro-neighborhoods. A few of those areas, including the popular American Martyrs area, are noted below in our neighborhood guide. Click any area name to see more.

Most of the Tree Section is zoned Residential Single Family.

Several Residential Single Family areas  have special sub-district zoning permissions. Homes along Rosecrans Avenue between Bell Avenue & Laurel Avenue may have higher fences in the front-yard setback area to reduce traffic noise. Homes on both sides of Marine Avenue between Ardmore Avenue & Sepulveda Boulevard may have higher fences, also, to reduce traffic noise. Some of the lots on Oak Avenue backing up to the General Commercial zone along Sepulveda Boulevard between Marine Avenue & Manhattan Beach Boulevard are permitted special design standards, landscaping and buffering requirements to allow commercial use of property in a residential area adjacent to Sepulveda Boulevard.
