Marina Del Rey is adjacent to Venice Beach and Santa Monica. It is a great place to watch the sailboats and to get onto the water to enjoy paddle boarding or fishing. Recently, with increased development plans, there has been an influx of new residents due to more local activity in the high tech sector. It is increasingly becoming desirable for professionals, retirees and families who are looking for a more relaxes atmosphere, fresh air and outdoor activities. Marina Del Rey is also home to many of Hollywood’s celebrities and is popular for celebrity watching. Look for comedienne and Marina Del Rey resident Chelsea Handler and Melrose Place alumni Grant Snow in the neighborhood.

Since Marina Del Rey is a smaller, planned community that is based around marina development, there are a limited number of single-family freestanding houses. The unusual history of Marina Del Rey has resulted in low levels of single-family construction. Often older bungalows are purchased, redesigned and rebuilt for functionality, aesthetics and eco-friendly living. The Silver Strand neighborhood, a stretch two blocks wide and ten blocks long between the Venice Peninsula and Marina Del Rey, contains many of the community’s luxury residences. It also has the nickname of Millionaires Row. Considered to be Marina Del Rey beach because of its proximity to the marina community, this stunning section of sand and surf is essentially a private beach as the only public access is by the Venice Pier. A prime example of California indoor-outdoor living, these residences rarely come on the market and sell within the $10 to $20 million range. A luxury condominium on Ocean Front Walk can be purchased for $2 to $3 million.
