Baldwin Vista is undoubtedly one of the greatest neighborhoods in Los Angeles that you’ve never heard of. It’s located between La Cienega and La Brea, South of Jefferson and it extends North and dead ends into Kenneth Hahn State Park.
Baldwin Vista is very sought after for its views and its convenience to all areas of the city. This neighborhood backs up into Kenneth Hahn State Park and there are beautiful, uphill exercise walks to be conquered right outside the front door. The Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook is about a mile away. The neighborhood is also within fantastic proximity to the Expo Line at La Cienega and Jefferson. It’s not so close that you can hear or see the train from the house, but it’s walking distance to the station.
Baldwin Vista, is buzzing right now. Central location, great weather, affordability and access to the Expo Line, which runs right at the Northern border of the neighborhood, are just some of the reasons. A whole new generation of young, hip buyers, many of whom work in artistic fields are literally lining up to buy the homes here and in the surrounding neighborhoods, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.
The neighborhood is extremely central, located 6 – 8 miles from Hollywood, Venice Beach and Downtown LA and about 2 miles outside of downtown Culver City. Since the neighborhood extends up into the Baldwin Hills Mountain range, it enjoys some of the most spectacular views in the city.
Other perks in Baldwin Vista include the Baldwin Breeze. Since the neighborhood, even in its flatter areas, is slightly elevated it catches an incredible ocean breeze that keeps the temperatures a couple of degrees cooler than its surroundings. The neighborhood was developed largely in the mid 1950’s so there is some truly fabulous mid-century architecture, including one Eichler home.
