My new listing at Hancock Village is sure to put a smile on your face! First, it is one of the rare single story, end units that seems like a separate home, and it's location within Hancock Village is ideal --- away from the buzz of the freeway, and just a short walk to the community pool, spa and tennis...Read More!
