Hancock Park Real Estate Information
House prices in Hancock Park are more expensive than the Los Angeles market average. The housing stock in the neighborhood consists of large one and two-story single-family luxury homes.
The district was first a rancho, then an oil field. The field was on its last legs of production about the time the expansion of Downtown Los Angeles encroached on the neighborhood in the early 20th century.
Hancock Park became a residential district in 1920. The first buyers of homes in Hancock Park chose this area because the quality of architecture, craftsmanship, and materials were top notch. The neighborhood drew the most prominent citizens of the era as its first residents. The Wilshire Country Club was built the same year for an estimated cost of $120,000, not a trivial amount of money at the time.
The lots on which the homes are built are spacious. Hancock Park homes are set back from the street - at 50 feet - creating large front yards. Landscaping may include hedges for privacy and some are adorned with lush and colorful subtropical plants. Sycamore and elm trees line the Hancock Park neighborhood streets, further adding to the bucolic (yet, sophisticated) charm.
Hancock Park is a gorgeous neighborhood and will stay that way, too. The Hancock Park Preservation Plan provides the guidelines that govern the preservation and historic architectural character of the neighborhood. The plan was developed when the neighborhood was designated as a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ), ensuring that the neighborhood's charms endure.

Without a doubt, well-heeled homes shoppers will be pleased with the selection of Hancock Park mansions for sale.
