Artcraft Manor neighborhood in Long Beach is an area of smaller homes built mostly during the 1940's. It has the advantage of being one of the more affordable residential areas within a short driving distance to the ocean, with Clark Ave being the eastern boundary, and bordered by Redondo Ave on the west.
It also has the advantage of being within walking distance to local shopping and neighborhood restaurants, and within 5 minutes driving time to freeway access. A quick trip down Pacific Coast Highway leads to the MarketPlace and Marina Pacific shopping centers, a short hop from Orange County and Seal Beach.
One of the nearby landmarks is the Traffic Circle, which dates back to its initial development in the 1920s, prior to any other development in the area. Artcraft Manor is also a great location for investors interested in smaller side-by-side duplex style properties developed on several streets in the area.
