One of the best-kept secrets in the South Bay is New Horizons-South Bay. This is a lush, peaceful, and sprawling community of proud and caring residents. Many of who have lived here since the complex was completed in the mid 60s. This was the first planned California Condominium Complex, with another New Horizons built near the same time just north of Santa Barbara.
The uniqueness in this community is the large amount of land the community is situated on. Built before land was at such a premium, the delightful one and two story buildings are scattered amongst beautifully landscaped grounds. All reminiscent of the condos in the Palm Springs area. To stroll through this complex on its winding pathways is a treat of its own. One gets the feel of small town, unhurried rural living.
Another unique aspect of this community is it is self managed by elected volunteers. This keeps the monthly fees to a minimum. With the residents guaranteed a caring management team that all have a stake in the well being of the community.
The community is made up of various 2 story condo buildings, 1 story condo ‘bungalows’, a 9 hole golf course, 2 swimming pools, tennis courts and a state of the art club house – all quite nice. The 2 to three bedroom condos are set around the horse shaped, par 3, 9-hole golf course. The golf course is maintained in an excellent manner, and is surrounded with lush trees, palms and tropical plants.
This little oasis of all most resort living is located on Maple Ave, just south of Sepulveda Blvd in the City of Torrance.
In the last few years, many other gated communities have been built in the area, and some offering similar amenities, but none offer the charm and lush grounds that the New Horizons South Bay complex offers to residents.
