The affluent Channel Islands Beach neighborhood rapidly grew in popularity due to its proximity to the Oxnard Dunes, which were frequently used in Hollywood films. By the end of the twenties, the ¾ mile stretch of land was fully developed with dense tracts of houses equipped with their own docks. These housing tracts are separated by narrow waterways that ensure nearly every house in the neighborhood has a waterfront feel. Past the southern edge of the neighborhood, the winding channels provide open access to the oceanfront. For professional assistance with management of your Channel Islands properties, contact Utopia Property Management today.
