To the west are some of the most iconic destinations and they are within minutes of travel. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the largest and finest collection of art west of the Mississippi is convenient enough to make the most of a season pass.
Historically Westlake has been a over-looked extension of Downtown Los Angeles. It’s homes are nearly as old as the city itself, with neighborhoods that have beautiful architectural styles, and have the rare opportunity to be brought up to date.
Most of the greater area in and around Los Angeles has been redeveloped, refurbished and often gentrified. To come across a neighborhood that is beginning to gain interest in such a prime location is rare, and unlikely to be seen many times in the future. Westlake is a perfect area to shop for a new home for first time buyers who don’t want to commute from a suburb and make the most of what Los Angeles has to offer.
The area Westlake that is closer to the downtown border are many luxury and medium condominiums.
In past years the condominium and loft market in Downtown Los Angeles, both buyer’s interest and prices has skyrocketed. Many adjacent areas are beginning to feel the impact of the high demand to live in the area.
