With a hip yet laidback vibe and close proximity to downtown Los Angeles, Los Feliz is is a favorite in Los Angeles. There’s a strong sense of community and kinship in a part of L.A. where people seem genuinely happy and carefree – which seems rather appropriate given its name.
Los Feliz is part of North East Los Angeles and is flanked to the north by Griffith Park and to the south by Silver Lake. West and northwest of Los Feliz are the world-famous neighborhoods of Hollywood and Hollywood Hills. Here you are a mere 7 miles northeast of downtown L.A. and 22 miles northwest of LAX; central indeed.
It’s said that you can ask 100 different people to define the borders of Los Feliz and you’ll get 100 different answers.Los Feliz basically comprises what are known as ‘the Hills, Estate, Knolls or Village’, with Los Feliz Village asits heart and soul. Homes here are rich in character, built in the 1920’s and 30’s in the classic California bungalow style, infusing the area with a romantic retro feel.
Winding streets and inspiring views define Franklin Hills with its stairway system which is a series of 14 stairways dating back to the 1920s and providing a great way to keep trim (and happy). The Gothic-style and whimsical Shakespeare Bridge is also a landmark of Los Feliz and was declared an L.A. Cultural Landmark in 1974.Connect With An Agent

The stunning Griffith Observatory is an iconic institution in its own right, whilst the 6000-seater Greek Theater can make for an enjoyable cultural outing. Vistas of the L.A. bowl are second to none from this beautiful urban parkland.Browse Properties For Sale
