Located between La Brea Ave. and Vine Street/N. Arden Blvd., Hancock Park is an affluent district in central Los Angeles. Its private homes are some of the most stately in Los Angeles County, and many prefer its in-city location to the extreme seclusion of the Pacific Palisades
, Palos Verdes, etc. Clean streets with prolific, well-maintained greenery checker Hancock Park's tiny (1.52 square mile), exclusive geography.
Its proximity to such LA destinations as the Miracle Mile
, the Fairfax District
, and Beverly Hills
—among others—has made Hancock Park one of the most uniformly upscale places to live in all of Southern California. Access to major freeways from Hancock Park is not exactly immediate—you need to head east to pick up the 101 or south to pick up the 10—but this is relative isolation is, of course, part of its charm. You are also right on top of major throughways like La Brea, Wilshire, and 3rd Street.
