Why Are Swimming Pools In Manhattan Beach Rare?

You may have noticed that it’s hard to find pools in Manhattan Beach homes for sale. At first glance, some people find this strange, but there are two excellent reasons for the lack of pools.

First, Manhattan Beach is so close to the Pacific Ocean that many homeowners often don’t use a pool enough to justify it. The community tends to draw people who would rather get into salt water than chlorinated. For this reason, many home builders skip a pool, and homeowners hit the waves instead.

The second reason is that many lots in Manhattan Beach are too small to even accommodate a pool. Manhattan Beach real estate has been in high demand for a long time, while the community is fully developed with no opportunity to expand. As a result, homeowners try to make the most out of every inch of their property, and a pool becomes an unnecessary luxury for some.

If you know Manhattan Beach is your ideal home and can’t live without a pool, your real estate search can be tricky. But it’s not impossible! There are the lucky few homes across the community that do have swimming pools.

Manhattan Beach Neighborhoods With Pools

If your Manhattan Beach dream home has a pool, look east of Sand Section as a starting point. While unfortunate, the number of pools in Sand Section is within the single digits, which makes these properties extraordinarily rare.

You will most likely find swimming pool homes in Manhattan Village, Liberty Village, and Mira Costa. Because these neighborhoods are further from the beach, their lots are larger, which gives them the space required for a pool. Similarly, these neighborhoods have lots with enough space to add your own pool to if your dream home doesn’t have one installed.

For those whose hearts are set on Tree Section or Hill Section, you can also find pools in these communities. They are less common than in the eastern communities but not as rare as in Sand Section. Pools in Tree and Hill Sections are typically found in the larger, more luxurious properties, and include a variety of styles.
