If you are not familiar with the Manhattan Beach Hill Section, think Beverly Hills with ocean views and surfing.

The Hill Section is west of Sepulveda, and east of the Sand Section with the dividing point found out the Valley-Ardmore Greenbelt. on the southern tip it starts at the Hermosa Beach border. The north end of the Hill Section is Manhattan Beach Blvd.

Because there are hills (really), many of the homes have either ocean or city/mountain views, or both. You'll find an ample supply of 7500+ square foot lots and newer Mediterranean, Craftsman, or Spanish style homes in excess of 4000 sq ft. 

You can walk (or easily bike) to downtown Manhattan Beach and the Strand from many of these properties making it very unique in that you have more privacy than is likely in the Sand Section, may have views, most likely will have a larger lot, and can still totally enjoy the beach lifestyle.

This is one of the most expensive and highly desirable neighborhoods of Manhattan Beach. Last year there were 34 Hill Section (MLS Area 144) sales ranging in price from $985K for basically land value up to $8,100,000 for a 8500 sq ft house on a 14000 sq ft lot with a guest house and panoramic ocean views. It was nice, very nice.
