Neighborhood Spotlight: Larchmont

Walk the Main Street in historical Larchmont Village and you would not be surprised to find the best ice cream in town.   This quaint neighborhood is nestled in a bustling city that Angelenos brag for its movie making spotlight, upscale shopping, and endless pool of culinary delights.  Larchmont seemingly allows its residents to kick back into LA’s refreshing climate on an ordinary midday and enjoy the luxuries offered to you which you can find all in close walking proximity.  While larchmont serves as the shopping district to Hancock Park and Windsor Square neighborhoods, and nearby Paramount studios, the well preserved nature and style of homes maintains its prominence for luxury homes.  (Marvin J.

Expert insight:  Serge Tran, a real estate agent with Keller Williams Larchmont, said home buyers gravitate to the neighborhood for its central location, easy access to the 101 and the 10 freeways, and for the friendly small-town vibe that is most readily seen at the weekly farmers market on Sundays.“It’s not a tourist attraction like the Hollywood one,” he said, “but one where neighbors go to as part of their weekly routine.”

Larchmont also boasts a “great diversity of housing stock,” with options from entry-level condominiums and town houses to large homes. Although some of the single-family homes are expensive, prices tend to go down the farther east you go, particularly east of Van Ness, he said.  (Scott Garner│LA Times)
