Many out of area and out of state buyers come to me looking for a nice gated community in the South Bay and Manhattan Beach. Unlike many other areas, gated communities are few and far between in the Beach Cities and there’s really only one option in the luxury community of Manhattan. Manhattan Village is the areas only real option with a combination of Estate Homes (SFRs), townhomes and court homes (clusters of townhome style units). Ideally located just a short drive to the beach, Manhattan Village sits east of Sepulveda just north or Marine Ave.
Manhattan Village is a planned community and is the only gated community in Manhattan Beach. An exclusive retreat which provides a lifestyle many are surprised to discover in a beach community. The community consists of approximately 400 town and court homes and 122 estate homes. See our Manhattan Village Floorplans and Manhattan Village Map page. The village is landscaped in a park setting surrounded by trees, pools, spas, playgrounds, bike paths and a soccer field. The location in Manhattan Beach is ideal. Manhattan Village Mall is within walking distance, with Ralphs, CVS, Macys, fine restaurants, entertainment, the Manhattan Tennis Club as well as a number of fine hotels.
Manhattan Village has two primary security gates, one for the estate home owners and another for the townhomes and court homes. The main gate is manned and access to the community is tightly regulated adding a level of safety on top of the already safe neighborhoods of Manhattan Beach in general.
The real estate market in this small gated community is usually very active with several homes often on the market. Prices can range dramatically from the high $700s for a smaller, fairly original condition court home, to well over $2.0M for an updated larger estate home.
