You can drive along one of the main thoroughfares through the Hancock Park neighborhood a thousand times and say to yourself “Wow, this is a really nice neighborhood.” Then, when you slow down and dig in further, you realize how truly special it is.
If you walk the neighborhood on a fall morning, passing all the well-manicured yards and gorgeous Period Revival homes, the effect of morning sunshine streaking through the yellowing leaves will make you feel as though you’re part of an early, sepia-toned Hollywood film. The feeling is sublime.

Hancock Park Information
House prices in Hancock Park are pricey when compared to the Los Angeles County average. The housing stock in the neighborhood consists of one and two-story single-family 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 quality of architecture, craftsmanship, and materials was top notch, drawing the most prominent citizens of the time 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 most common styles of homes built in the 1920s were Period Revival, including Spanish Colonial, Tudor, English, Spanish Colonial, and Mediterranean. However, American Colonial, Monterey, and French Revival style homes re well represented. A few of the more recently built Modern and Contemporary homes dot the neighborhood. Without a doubt, Hancock Park is a good area to hunt for mansions and estates.
The lots on which the homes are built are spacious. Houses are set back from the street, at 50 feet, providing for 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 neighborhood streets, further adding to Hancock Parks bucolic (yet, sophisticated) charm.
Hancock Park is a gorgeous neighborhood and will stay that way, too. The Hancock Park Preservation Plan provides the guidelines governing 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 area’s charms will endure.
