This diverse neighborhood was developed in the late 1800s by Julius LaBonte and later on was where a lot of Paramount Studio workers bought homes. The studio still stands proudly and is a well known landmark to the north east of the boulevard.
If you’re interested in buying a home in this neighborhood, you can choose from quaint bungalows, condos, duplexes, and much larger homes on sizable lots. Depending on where you work it can be a relatively easy commute to the Westside, Hollywood, or downtown via car or Metro.
Melrose Avenue sits on top of Larchmont with Beverly Boulevard at the bottom. Rossmore Avenue is to the West with Wilton Place to the East.
The heart and soul of Larchmont is the Boulevard, where locals can walk to coffee shops, restaurants and boutique stores, whilst enjoying a popular Sunday Farmer’s Market. There are a variety of shops from stationary to toys to skincare, or you can pop in to the local spa, hair salon or one of the nail bars.
There are also shops and restaurants along Melrose Avenue and the neighborhood is close to the Wilshire Country Club and the Los Angeles Tennis Club if golf or tennis are more your thing. The streets are a pleasant place to walk the dog or take the kids to nearby Robert Burns Park.
