Feliz means “happy” in Spanish and it’s an accurate name for such a fabulous area of L.A. It’s hard to be down when you’re in walking distance of coffee shops, theaters, boutiques, and sidewalk cafes on Vermont Avenue, between Franklin and Hollywood, or the Hillhurst corridor between Los Feliz Boulevard and Prospect Avenue. (not to mention, right down the street from the best burger joint in town – Umami Burger).
Aside from the plethora of entertainment options, Los Feliz is also home to some of Los Angeles’ most standout architecture. Brimming with old Hollywood estates, romantic Spanish homes, and tons of architectural properties, Los Feliz offers something for every palette.
Los Feliz lies north of East Hollywood and just south of the Santa Monica Mountains, adjacent to the neighborhoods of Hollywood and Silver Lake. It’s home to a number of celebrities dating way back to Old Hollywood (Charlie Chaplin lived all around Los Feliz).
Homes in Los Feliz are beginning to sell like hotcakes at all price points… buyers are beginning to realize that now is an amazing time to buy – low interest rates and low home prices pack a fabulous 1-2 punch.
Los Feliz home prices start at around $700k south of Los Feliz Blvd, and about $1,100,000 north of the blvd. Home prices in Los Feliz have seen a dramatic increase in recent years, as we are now beginning to see sales north of $5 million becoming a near commonplace, and creeping towards our westside neighbor’s prices.
With so much of young Hollywood calling Los Feliz home, it’s the perfect place to begin your search if you’re looking for hip, neighborhood-y, dog-friendly, delicious eateries, family-friendly, walkability… the list goes on.
some favorite hotspots in Los Feliz? try the Tiki Ti bar for a cocktail with a punch, Home restaurant for almost anything you’re in the mood for (their french toast is fan-tastic), Little Dom’s for Italian food with a twist, or Lucifer’s for pumpkin pizza (I know it sounds funny, but it’s really good!)
