Homes for Sale in Larchmont
Search Larchmont homes and real estate listings. Larchmont is a charming neighborhood that sits smack dab in the middle of the City of Los Angeles. The area was dubbed a 'streetcar suburb' from the days when the Los Angeles Railway Line once served the area. When Downtown Los Angeles once contained most of the city's residents, emerging districts - in what would eventually be called the Greater Wilshire area - were suburbs. That's a pretty quaint notion of suburbia by modern standards.
Today, Larchmont is a highly coveted residential neighborhood chock full of well-preserved historic homes and tree-lined streets adorned with mature magnolias, elms, and sycamores. What was once considered suburban is now urban, but in the best possible sense; the vibe here is laid-back and elegant.
Larchmont Real Estate
Home prices in Larchmont are pricier than the Los Angeles County average. The housing stock in the neighborhood consists primarily of one and two-story single-family residences and estates.
Before becoming a residential neighborhood, Larchmont was once barley fields. A few of the earliest homes were made from adobe that was scooped up from the nearby stream, "Arroyo de los Jardines" (Creek of the Gardens), that now resides within property boundaries of the Wilshire Country Club. Humble beginnings, indeed. In the 1920s, development began in earnest with a build-out of a Period Revival neighborhood.
In the center of Larchmont sits Larchmont Village, a retail shopping strip lined with boutiques, shops, and storefronts for local service companies. It was developed in 1921 around the same time many of the early homes here were built.
Wilton Historic District
The Wilton Historic District sits in the southeast corner of Larchmont. If you love classic architectural homes, you'll love this enclave, home of 63 one and two-story Craftsman and Colonial Revival Bungalows. Half were built before the first World War, between 1907-1925 to be precise.
The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 due to its architectural integrity, neighborhood continuity, and the relatively few changes made since the three tracts that comprise the district were first developed. The vibe of area avoids a cookie-cutter look due to subtle variances in design, particularly through the inclusion of Prairie and Oriental influences that made their way into some of the Craftsman homes.
What's more, a few other styles dot the neighborhood, namely Mediterranean and Colonial Revival-influenced designs including Dutch, American, Spanish, and Mission.
Homes sit on large lots, set back from the street, and provide space for large front lawns. Many yards rise 5 to 7 feet from the curb, giving elevation and additional visual variety over the otherwise flat terrain. Sub-tropical landscaping is the norm with plenty of palm trees and exotic bird of paradise flowers.
