Explore Los Angeles Coastal Neighborhoods You’ll Love.
When exploring Los Angeles County real estate, you’ll recognize the big names: Playa Del Rey, Malibu Beach, Venice. What you might not know is that there are plenty of lesser-known areas with stunning panoramic views that are perfect for luxury buyers on a budget. Here are four can’t-miss neighborhoods in which you’ll want to invest.
Interested in Playa Del Rey? Try Westchester or Playa Vista
Beachside Playa Del Rey is a popular location for on-the-go living with its proximity to Los Angeles International Airport and the Pacific Coast Highway. However, you can find a similar jet setting ambiance in nearby Westchester and Playa Vista. Playa Vista’s trendy, in-the-know industry appeal attracts up-and-coming movers and shakers, while Westchester caters to a more collegiate crowd, as it is home to both Loyola Marymount University and Otis College of Art and Design. Both neighborhoods are situated adjacent to Playa Del Rey, but you’ll see your dollar stretch further in these lesser-known areas.
Interested in Malibu Beach? Try Malibu Canyon
Malibu Beach’s famous stretch of sand can quickly become overpriced and overpopulated. Instead, consider searching for real estate in nearby Malibu Canyon. If you’re craving wide-open vistas, you won’t find a better view. This quiet enclave is a solace from the steady pace of traffic cruising along the coast. Plus, with balmy seaside temperatures and a cool canyon breeze, you can keep your windows open all year long for a breath of fresh air. Homes nestled along Malibu Creek State Park have ample access to outdoor activities, a plethora of hiking trails and babbling brooks to explore, and a quick drive to both the beach and the city.
Interested in Venice or Santa Monica? Try Mar Vista
If you’re dreaming of a beachy bungalow with a distinct SoCal flair, your first instinct might be to check out properties in Venice or Santa Monica. However, Mar Vista is a hip, eclectic neighborhood east of Venice where the beach is nearby, the brunch menus are dazzling, and its bars are always buzzing. Mar Vista maintains the laid-back ease of surfside living, and its highly-rated academic facilities attract young families. For an in-the-know neighborhood without the tourists, try Mar Vista.
