Tree Section Homes for Sale | Manhattan Beach CA


About the Manhattan Beach Tree Section


The Manhattan Beach Tree Section is located west of Sepulveda Blvd, south of Rosecrans and, north of Manhattan Beach Blvd and stretches to the border of the Sand Section to the west.

In the Multiple Listing Service this neighborhood is defined as Area 143.

So why is it called the 'Tree Section"? Is it all the trees or the street names.

Even though you find far more trees than other parts of the Beach Cities,  the "Tree Section" moniker derives from the names of the streets like Elm, Oak, Poinsettia, Palm, Laurel, Maple, Pine, etc.

The Tree Section is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan Beach.

You can actually have a bit of a back yard and still  can walk to the beach and downtown without crossing a major street. This area feels safe and quiet, and a bit rural with all the trees. You’ll notice that many of the streets have no curbs or sidewalks. Street parking is free and usually plentiful.

Just like the rest of Manhattan Beach, the Tree Section is in transition. You will find a few original bungalows built in the late 40’s to mid 50’s. Most have been remodeled over the years to add a second bath or a family room or to update the kitchen.

In the last 20 years, many of the original Manhattan Beach homes have been replaced with new, multi-story homes designed to maximize the livable square footage permitted on the lot.

The majority of elementary school students in the Tree Section attend Pacific. Those living in the north-west section attend Grand View.

American Martyrs


The American Martyrs Catholic Church sits on the highest spot in the Tree Section. Its golden, domed bell tower can be seen from quite a distance and the hourly chimes can also be heard around town. The American Martyrs Catholic School is nearby. This area of the Tree Section surrounding the church property has come to be known as the American Martyrs or just Martyrs neighborhood. It is the one area in the Tree Section where you might find a home with an ocean view and therefore homes here can be some of the priciest in the Tree Section.
