Bordering the iconic Venice community and located within minutes of the beach, Mar Vista, which means ocean views in Spanish, is a residential enclave in westside Los Angeles. Embracing a small-town atmosphere and a laidback lifestyle, Mar Vista residents enjoy shopping and dining options along Venice Boulevard and eclectic homes that range from 1920s bungalows to contemporary two-stories and highly rated schools. Reflecting the city’s Great Streets Initiative, Mar Vista is now more bikeable and pedestrian-friendly with newly added bike lanes and sidewalks.

Mar Vista has several main thoroughfares to take you through town.

From midcentury modern and ranch-style cottages to Spanish-influenced New Traditionals and contemporary two-story homes with steel frames, Mar Vista homes dot the landscape with mature trees, well-kept lawns and sidewalks. Built from the 1920s to the present day, single-family houses start at $1 million and go up to $2 million for 1,000-square-foot to 2,000-square-foot cottages and ranch styles. It is also common to see developers taking down older homes, reconstructing and adding square footage to new builds. Larger homes around 3,000 and 4,000 square feet may list between $3 million and over $4 million. Condos and townhouses range from $700,000 to more than $1 million.
