Take Sunset’s Take on Los Feliz, Los Angeles

The neighborhood of Los Feliz is a combination of communities. It includes historic mid-century modern real estate, the gated community of Laughlin Park, and multi-million-dollar residences in the Los Feliz hills, but it also offers more modestly priced properties below Los Feliz Boulevard and a thriving, walkable commercial district. This diversity gives the area both an exclusive and accessible feel.

Homes in Los Feliz tend to be large properties with plenty of space, and great private schools and school districts such as Franklin Elementary are an additional draw for families seeking to move into the area. Restaurants, bars, and boutiques in Los Feliz Village—near Hillhurst and Vermont Avenues—make up a great spot for shopping and socializing.

Rolling hillsides, palm trees, and low-storied buildings characterize Los Feliz. The area is convenient to downtown Los Angeles and the Valley. It’s also situated near other popular neighborhoods, including Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Griffith Park.

The hilly setting of Los Feliz has given notable architects a canvas for creating unique works of art. Properties by Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, and R.M. Schindler abound in the area.

Buying a Home in Los Feliz, Los Angeles

Our real estate team has experience across the full spectrum of homes in Los Feliz. We have worked with notable members of the entertainment industry who want the exclusivity, historic value, and attractive setting of a home in the hills, and we have supported clients who want to be near the social center of Los Feliz Village. In both cases, expertise in the properties and areas that make up the neighborhood offer a tremendous difference when it comes to buying and selling.

Given the popularity of Los Feliz, it shouldn’t be a surprise that homes both above and below the Boulevard move fast. Buyers can certainly spend time visiting different properties and defining the criteria for their ideal home, but when they are ready to purchase, they will want to have their home loan pre-approved and be prepared to make an aggressive offer.

If you are looking for a house with distinctive character, take some time to learn about the different architectural styles of Los Feliz properties. You may find that you are more attracted to a modern feel and wide open floor plan, Spanish-style stucco and clay tiles, or another architectural form. We can show you a variety of options to help develop your preferences.
