If there’s one thing you can’t deny about the View Park/Windsor Hills area is its spectacular views of downtown Los Angeles and the wonderful cool breeze residents experience nearly year-round, hence, the neighborhood is appropriately named. But the majestic views and cool ocean breeze aren’t the only reasons people are quickly finding out about this hidden gem of a neighborhood. This neighborhood is the poster child for “small town, big city” living.
Located in the heart of LA, the View Park/Windsor Hills area is one of the few LA neighborhoods that is quiet and tucked away to itself. That reason alone is one of the biggest reasons why the face of the neighborhood is quickly changing.
View Park is an affluent neighborhood filled with residents of prestigious careers as well as celebrities. But back in the 60s, the neighborhood wasn’t as well known as it is today, but that’s when people started buying houses in the neighborhood and have been living there ever since, even to this very day! So that just goes to show you the longevity of the neighborhood.
But it’s also important to note that some of the generations of home buyers from the 60s have moved on, whether downsizing or simply wanting to sell and travel. As the older generations are moving out, it’s causing a flood of younger buyers to move to the area. And because of its safe and quiet location, it’s the perfect neighborhood for professionals and young couples alike to want to live.
This shift in buyers holds true for many LA neighborhoods but it’s been relatively true for the View Park/Windsor Hills neighborhood, especially over the past few years. This shift in buyers is also a major contributor to the true and current representation of what LA looks like today.
So what is it about View Park/Windsor Hills that has young buyers flooding the neighborhood? Yes, the views and ocean breeze are major perks, and so is the calm and peace within the neighborhood, but from a real estate aesthetics point of view, more and more buyers are flooding this area simply because the homes are absolutely breathtaking in design and architecture.
The View Park/Windsor Hills neighborhood is comprised of Mid-Century Modern and Mediterranean-style homes. And the best part is that these homes are affordable, ranging from modest three to four-bedroom starter homes to homes reaching the millions… it just depends on the buyer and their price range.
Because the homes vary in architectural styles, you can expect to see things like stucco exteriors, arched windows and doorways, wrought-iron accents and balconies, and courtyards in Mediterranean-style homes. In the Mid-Century Modern homes, you can expect to see large windows, angular accents, flat roofs, glass sliding doors, and minimalistic features.
Between the uniqueness of these styles of homes, the neighborhood truly has something for everyone. But in order to get the full experience of living in the View Park/Windsor Hills neighborhood, you have to also get a feel for the area a “lay of the land,” if you will.
