Hancock Park

Welcome to Hancock Park

 

The Scoop

One of the first neighborhoods developed in Los Angeles, Hancock Park has an old school California is home to some of the most well-preserved early twentieth century architecture in the city. Stately English Tudor, Spanish and Traditional homes sit proudly on large lots and tree-lined streets. The Hancock Park historical committee limits what can and can’t be done in the way of renovating the old architecture … the stringent limits have worked, for many of the streets still feel like they hail from the 1920s.
 

The Vibe

Despite the grand architecture, Hancock Park has a laid-back vibe. It’s long been a bastion for writers and creative types, and is known for its welcoming vibe to all types.
