Home to some of Los Angeles’ most grand and glamorous estates and many of the “Old Hollywood” screen stars from the 1920’s-1950’s, this area is once again, attracting the Hollywood elite who can blend into this affluent community of distinct homes that was built around the grounds of a private golf club in the 1920’s by the Hancock family with profits earned form oil drilling in the former Rancho La Brea. With quick access to studios, including Paramount which is a stone's throw away across Melrose Avenue, the community's history as a home to stars and other employees of the industry is as old as the neighborhood itself.  Bordering Hollywood and K-town, this exclusive neighborhood hosts some of the most impressive mansions in L.A. The center of Hancock Park is also fairly close to the 101 Freeway to the east and the 10 Freeway to the South. For Metro riders, the Purple line has its final stop at Wilshire and Western.

 

Nestled between Melrose Ave to the north, Wilshire Blvd to the south, La Brea Avenue to the west and Van Ness to the east lays the neighborhood of Hancock Park. With sprawling tree-lined rows of imposing historic family homes the suburban strip is a stones-throw away from the buzzing Larchmont Village and Windsor Square.

 

Hancock Park is home to many fine private schools that reflect the diversity of the area. The public schools are outstanding, as well. From Hancock Park Elementary School to Larchmont Charter Schools, your children will blossom as beautifully as the exquisite greenery that defines this unique and majestic area.
