About Hancock Park Neighborhood
Hancock Park is located within the 90004, 90020, 90010, and 90036 zip codes and is bordered by Miracle Mile to the west; Hollywood to the north; Windsor Square and Larchmont to the east; and Greater Wilshire to the south.
Hancock Park was developed by, and owes its name to, philanthropist and developer George Allan Hancock, who subdivided the land in the 1920s, using profits earned from oil drilling in the former Rancho La Brea, developing the neighborhood around the grounds of the Wilshire Country Club. Hancock was raised in a home near the La Brea tar pits, which he donated to Los Angeles County. Most of the homes in Hancock Park have a 50-foot setback from the street, per G. Allan Hancock's demands, and include a driveway on the side of the home leading to a rear garage though a porte-cochère.
Hancock Park homes sit on generous-sized lots. Large front yards are the norm because the original plan for the subdivision specified 50-foot setbacks from the street. Yards here are well-manicured and lush. Subtropical plants and flowers are common and reflect the early ambitions of Angelinos to create a West Coast version of paradise.
Mature trees line the streets of Hancock Park providing beauty as well as shade – they are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Craggily Sycamore and Elm trees are the are the two most commonly planted.
