Neighborhood in California

Los Angeles County 90027


Los Feliz, which means “The Happy Ones,” is a free-spirited community in the foothills of the eastern Santa Monica Mountains. And it’s just that: a community. The busy central village is dotted with independent shops and restaurants, one of the few Los Angeles neighborhoods where locals can experience the best of the city on foot. 


Eclectic homes and streetscapes.


Local home styles match the eclectic, diverse vibe. Ramshackle condo buildings abut multi-million-dollar houses. A Spanish Colonial Revival will be squeezed in next to a postmodern bungalow. Home prices can vary wildly depending on the type of home. Condos start at around $500,000. A medium-sized, single-family home will often go for two or three times that, while larger houses will fetch several million dollars, depending on location and amenities. 

The grand mountains of Griffith Park tower over the busy village. This vast 4,200-acre urban wilderness is a short walk from any home in the neighborhood. Mountain bikers and horseback riders explore miles of trails through groves of ancient pine trees. The historic Griffith Observatory, home to the Samuel Oschin Planetarium, offers views of the stars above and the city lights below. The park is also home to the Los Angeles Zoo.

Los Feliz is conveniently located between the 5 and 101 freeways, with the 2 running right through Silver Lake. Like most of Los Angeles, traffic can be heavy, especially during baseball season, when fans take Sunset Boulevard on the way to Dodger Stadium in Chavez Ravine.
