Today we’re taking a look at El Camino Village. While most people think El Camino Village is part of Lawndale….it’s actually split between Lawndale and Gardena. It’s one of our favorite neighborhoods in terms of the value you get. Take a look at all of the homes that have sold in El Camino Village so far this year (as of 10/29).
On of our favorite Lawndale neighborhoods is the small pocket known as El Camino Village. It was a great month for home sales in the neighborhood with e 11 homes selling in August. The median “asking” price was $630,000 with the median “sold” price at the same $630,000 meaning that homes generally sold at full price indicating a strong seller’s market.
Welcome to our favorite neighborhood in Lawndale CA. El Camino Village is the area that actually consists of both Lawndale and Gardena. What makes the area special is that it has a very “neighborhood” look and feel compared to some other parts of both of those cities.
Housing consists of primarily 1940’s and 1950’s era post WWII single family homes which gives the area a really nice look and feel with real pride of ownership and curb appeal. They were well built beach bungalow type tract homes with usually 3 bedrooms and often around 1,100 square feet. Many added square footage over the years and while some are still in fairly original condition most have been remodeled and improved over the years.
The neighborhood consists of single level homes with pleasant front yards on quiet, tree lined streets.
The borders of the area are generally Marine to the north, Manhattan Beach Blvd to the south, Prairie to the west and Crenshaw to the east. Nearby highlights are Alondra Park, Alondra Golf Course and Bodger Park.
El Camino Village is a small, unincorporated section of both Lawndale and Gardena and it happens to be one of the best values in the South Bay. The neighborhood has a much more residential feel than the surrounding areas…..tree lined streets, original 1940s and 1950s beach style bungalows, and an elementary school in the heart of the neighborhood.
Real estate in El Camino Village offers some of the best values in the area as the homes are still reasonably priced compared with nearby Torrance but offers the same safe and pleasant feeling. Bordered by Marine to the north, Manhattan Beach Blvd to the South and Prairie to the west, this relatively secret neighborhood consist of homes primarily built in the 40’s and 50’s. Some are still the original “beach” bungalows while many have been expanded and updated.
