Los Feliz Hills
The Los Feliz Hills, aka ‘District A,” is almost an entirely residential area… Except that its boundaries also contain most of Griffith Park. When locals proudly refer to the park as “our backyard,” it’s because, well, it is. As far as urban aesthetics go, Los Feliz Hills is one lovely stretch of real estate, especially after it rains! There’s little doubt the hills are home to many of Los Feliz’s wealthiest residents with magnificent homes and significant mansions (not of the “Mc” variety) with some of the most stunning views in all Los Angeles. Architecturally, Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Ennis House” is either down the street or around the bend from a John Lautner or a Paul Williams. And yes, lots of luminaries (including a movie star or two) do live in the Los Feliz Hills. Because.
Those hills (and the homes built on them) serve as a scenic backdrop that frames our neighborhood, yet unlike other hilly areas in the city, the view isn’t marred by big billboards or skyscrapers acting as bigger billboards.
Los Feliz Boulevard is the baseline where the hill’s “start.” And the Boulevard is lined with trees, hundreds of cultivated Deodar Cedars that create one of the most recognizable drives in the city.
