Hancock Park / Wilshire

Hancock Park is one of the oldest and most well-preserved neighborhoods in Los Angeles. With its broad lawns, mature trees and central location five miles west of downtown, Hancock Park consists largely of single family homes located north of Wilshire Boulevard and south of Melrose Avenue. Along its western and eastern boundaries, North Highland Avenue and North Rossmore Avenue, homes lining both sides of the street lie within Hancock Park. In sharp contrast to most Los Angeles neighborhoods, homes in Hancock Park are set well back from the street, most power and telephone lines are underground, and fences are strongly discouraged. The area also surrounds the Wilshire Country Club. These characteristics, along with the area's abundance of classic Los Angeles architecture, have made it one of the most desirable areas in all of Southern California since its development.  The neighborhood of Windsor Square and Larchmont are nearby and Larchmont Boulevard is one of the best walkable commercial areas in Los Angeles featuring charming restaurants, trendy boutiques and numerous coffee shops.  In 2007, Hancock Park became the 23rd Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) in the City of Los Angeles. Eighty six percent (86%) of its homes and structures were identified as being Historic Contributors in the Historic Resources Survey.
