Los Angeles is home to some of the most desirable real estate on the planet.  The best homes in Los Angeles offer owners and their closest friends jetliner views, nostalgic history, and convenient access to The City of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.  Behind the allure and glamor, homebuyers can find unique niche neighborhoods hidden around the city like 770 Latimer Road in Santa Monica.

The hot properties featured here are interesting because of their style, history, and location.

Property #1 is a cozy canyon home with an organic vibe.  The neighborhood is similar to although different than Laurel Canyon.  Homes in Rustic Canyon are set further apart and sit on larger lots.  They offer more peaceful tranquil surroundings compared to some of the hustle and bustle areas around LA.  The street is not extremely mountainous compared to some of the other streets in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains.  Homes here in the Rustic Canyon neighborhood are scarce and do not turn over as frequently as other communities.  People fall in love with their homes in Rustic Canyon.

At the boarder of Santa Monica and the Pacific Palisades sits a favorite neighborhood among locals.  Home designs here are decorated in a modern style that will enchant your spirit.  Modern homes built in harmony with nature boast a midcentury modernism style.  Despite the consistent Frank Loyd Wright style of many of the homes here, you’ll still find museum modern homes scattered throughout the neighborhood.  Take a drive down Latimer Road to experience the aesthetic for yourself and then stop at Rustic Canyon Recreational Park to swing in a hammock while soaking in the Southern California sun only minutes from the Pacific Ocean.

770 Latimer Road hit the market this week near Rustic Canyon Recreational Park.  Listed at $4,495,000 the home has approximately 2,967 square feet and is priced at $1,515 per square foot.  A wooden exterior helps this property blend well with nature and its surrounding rustic atmosphere.  Five bedrooms and four bathrooms sit on a 26,175 square foot lot.  This home is only minutes from the Pacific Ocean and Sunset Boulevard.  Take Sunset Boulevard to Brooktree and turn left onto Latimer Road to arrive at your driveway.  Mature Sycamore, Redwood, and Oak Trees accent the gardens on approximately 1/2 acre.   High vaulted ceilings and bright colors make this home inviting and great for entertaining guests.  Internationally recognized architect Ray Kapee also resides in the neighborhood in his 1967 nature friendly estate which brings us to our second property for consideration.                         

The second property of the week is just east of 770 Latimer Road. Only minutes down Sunset Boulevard sits a newly listed Ray Kapee designed estate suitable for any modern art lover.  The home was completed in 2017 and offers 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms priced at $2,574 a square foot.  Located on lower San Ysidro Drive much of this home’s value comes from its proximity to Sunset Boulevard. Homes that are located in lower Bel Air and lower Beverly Hills sell for more money compared to a home located near Mulholland Drive.  Both upper and lower areas in Bel Air and Beverly Hills properties can have extraordinary views of the Pacific Ocean and city lights. Take Benedict Canyon to San Ysidro Drive and enter the estate through grand gates and fall in love with your new humble abode.  Capture canyon, ocean, and city views specifically designed to maximize your living experience and lifestyle.  A private guest house and pool house add additional value to this estate.  Kappe’s use of poured in place concrete, glass, and redwood took over 6 years to construct.  Of course, you’ll also find a personal gym, screening room, and wine cellar inside the main house.  This home is perfect for a homebuyer who loves modern architecture and demands to purchase a home near Sunset Boulevard.

The Rustic Canyon area as well as lower Bel Air and Beverly Hills are desirable areas to buy and sell homes in Los Angeles.  Your home value may yield a higher price if you’re selling a home in a niche area.  Homebuyers and sellers should pay special attention to micro communities that may add value to property.  Even if you own a home adjacent to a niche neighborhood, your property value may be higher than you expect.  Homes with history, unique neighborhoods, and captivating views sell for more money in Los Angeles.  Each piece of property is unique, and it is recommended that you consult with a local real estate professional to determine how much you should ask for your property.
