This is a report on the Mount Washington West neighborhood in the city of Los Angeles(zip code 90065).  Located close to Elyria Canyon Park and just north of Downtown Los Angeles, it is a part of what is known as NorthEast Los Angeles(NELA).

This has historically been a very stable community with many long term(and quite a few original) homeowners.  



The overall appearance is well-maintained and neat but there are certainly opportunities to transform the spaces to reflect 21st century living.   



There is a natural contour of the hillside that showcases views in many of the homes which range from three to five bedrooms.

While it is an established neighborhood, there is a certain hipness associated with it as well with its proximity to NELA popular spots Mount Washington, Highland Park and Eagle Rock. The highly-regarded Mount Washington Elementary School is nearby too although enrollment eligilbility should be verified.

Hi Michael - That's an interesting neighborhood. I vaguely remember driving through the area during some early construction - it certainly turned out well, and is obviously popular enough that buying a home there is a challenge best accomplished with the help of an area expert - you are certainly the best choice for that.

Michael,  This is a cool neighborhood.  I love the staggering of the homes on the hillside.  Looks like the home owners care for their homes nicely with the manicured landscape.

Michael, all the neighborhoods that you highlight are so varied in architecture, and your reports on them are so thorough.   This one in Mount Washington West in NELA is another example of wonderful homes that Michael Jacobs is an expert in market values on!

 I too liked the varied home styles and always appreciate the neighborhoods tucked into hillsides offering views. With only one home available, it's imperative to have a savvy agent on your side - you're the one that I would   want working for me. Buying or selling. Have a nice Friday.

Mid Century has been hot  architectural trend for several years now, as a matter of fact, there was a major conference in Palm Springs last year on the subject as they have an abundance of mid century homes.   I am delighted that there is one home for you to sale to someone who is crazy about the style.  A

I like the location of this neighborhood and I guess I'm not the only one with the low turnover you are seeing there.

Good evening Michael,

Like Roger D. Mucci this is my least favorite style of home but many are attracted to this Mid Century architecture. Only one home on the market..it certainly must have one of your clients name on it!

While these homes are not classic MCM - mid-century modern - Mount Washington West offers an alternative to the surrounding neighborhood with its typically larger homes.  

Thank you for stopping by and your comments.  I appreciate the support.

While these homes may not be classic mid century Michael, they are nonetheless very appealing because of the location and the fabulous landscaping and exterior elevations.
