Hancock Park | Tour

May 5, 2017

 

If you are searching for the perfect balance of culture, cuisine, and storybook charm, look no further than Hancock Park. Developed in the 1920s by the wealthy oil baron George Allen Hancock, this historic neighborhood is defined by its sprawling front yards, old fashioned street lamps and stately appointed mansions. Centrally located in the Miracle Mile section of Mid-Wilshire, Hancock Park is bound by Melrose Ave to the North, Wilshire Blvd to the South, La Brea Avenue to the West and Van Ness to the East.

Before Los Angeles moved West, Hancock Park was the official home to the stars of old Hollywood cinema. With close proximity to movie studios, including Paramount Pictures on Melrose Ave, the city’s history as the prime residence for celebrities is nearly as old as the neighborhood itself. Due to this historic Hollywood pedigree, Hancock Park is home to some of oldest and architecturally impressive estates in all of Los Angeles. Luxurious mansions dating back to the 1920s can be found in styles ranging from Period Revival to English, Spanish, Tudor and American Colonial. Adored for their well preserved design, smaller craftsman style California bungalows can be found near Hancock Parks main shopping district Larchmont Village.

Known as a boutique lovers’ paradise, Larchmont Village is a top attraction for its artesian coffee shops, restaurants, bookstores and European Style Farmers Market. Living in Hancock park is a culinary delight with destinations like Larchmont Bungalow, Café Gratitude, Providence, Republique and Osteria Mozza nearby. The Wilshire Country Club and Los Angeles Tennis Club are popular destinations for recreation. Residents are afforded some of the best schools including Third Street Elementary and the Marlborough School for Girls. If you are looking to live in one of the most charming and historic neighborhoods in all of Los Angeles, Hancock Park is the perfect place to call home.
