Real Estate Insights:

Neighboring the luxurious Wilshire Corridor and the elegant Holmby Hills, Westwood is amongst great company. Westwood is almost 100 years old, as construction began in 1919 when the University of California Los Angeles began its construction. By 1922, residential developments began in the verdant surrounding area. 

The average listing price for single-family homes is currently $900,000. However, in certain sectors of the Westwood neighborhood, some houses are sold at up to $3.17 million dollars. The average price per square foot is $662.

Parks and Nature:

Holmby Park has been around since 1929. This lovely park has a playing area for children, a picnic area, and has a scenic walkway around the perimeter of the park, which tends to be jogged by locals and the happy wagging tails of dogs and their owners. The Holmby Park is home to the Armand Hammer Pony Golf Course. 

People and Lifestyle:

The Village’s cultural attractions include the innovative Hammer Museum, the acclaimed Geffen Playhouse and Fox Theater, a landmark movie palace that regularly hosts splashy red carpet premieres. Some recent premieres include Bombshell, Charlie's Angels, IT: Chapter 2, and What Men Want.
