Hancock Park

A quiet refuge that allows residents to feel as if they have stepped back in time.

Welcome to Hancock Park

Well-preserved history and timeless, charming luxury.
Situated between the glamour of Beverly Hills and LA’s bustling downtown, Hancock Park is a quiet refuge that allows residents to feel as if they have stepped back in time. Meticulously maintained estates built in opulent style line the streets, not far from parks, country clubs, and other scenic spots to enjoy Southern California’s perfect weather. Within the neighborhood’s rolling green lawns, locals enjoy larger homes than what may be found in other central neighborhoods without sacrificing location, lifestyle, or luxury.
George Allan Hancock, the neighborhood’s namesake, struck black gold when oil was discovered beneath Hancock Park. After the oil wells dried up, Hancock subdivided the area into residential lots and leased 105 acres to the Wilshire Country Club, still a focal point of the neighborhood today. This quiet sanctuary in the heart of Los Angeles is home to some of the city’s most beautiful estates, many of which have been protected thanks to strict zoning height restrictions. This particular character has been well-preserved a century later ensuring Hancock Park’s iconic charm will be enjoyed for generations to come.

Local Lifestyle

Hancock Park is quiet, comfortable, and truly feels like home. A tight-knit community boasts tree-lined streets, rolling lawns, proud residents, and terrific local schools, both public and private. Hancock Park perfectly balances luxury and leisure, offering a more laid-back lifestyle to its residents. A neighborhood rich in old-fashioned charm remains seemingly untouched, thanks to local ordinances protecting the many Victorian-era homes representing a forgotten era. Larger homes can be found in this central neighborhood, making it perfect for those looking to put down roots for the long term.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

Hancock Park is home to a plethora of “locals only” spots. Cozy cafes, antique shops, sports bars where everybody knows your name, and neighborhood movie nights are just a few of the special perks of a life lived here.

Go Get Em Tiger is undoubtedly a local favorite for a quick caffeine fix. In addition to coffee classics, Go Get Em Tiger also boasts a breakfast and lunch menu, a variety of fresh-baked treats, and even has a coffee club, delivering a wide array of coffee from across the globe right to members’ front doors.
Berkshire House is an energetic spot for elevated gastropub favorites like flavorful Brussels sprouts, buffalo cauliflower, white cheese pizza, and refreshing cocktails served in classy copper cups. Berkshire House also hosts a popular “reverse” late-night happy hour, perfect for when those late-night cravings hit.
Fresh, New York-style pizza is enjoyed nearby at The Village Pizzeria, a casual neighborhood favorite since 2008. Founded by a true Brooklynite with an emphasis on fresh ingredients, garlic rolls, baked ziti, and homemade meatballs are a few other menu items worth checking out.
Hancock Park is also home to a high number of unique antique shops along La Brea and Melrose Avenues. East Meets West Antiques Quilts & Americana is just one example, which has been featured in Architectural Digest, Country Living, and many other national publications.
