Neighborhood Spotlight – El Camino Village
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.
