One of Los Angeles’ most exciting markets is undoubtedly Los Feliz. Los Feliz, like its name suggests, is a “happy” place to live. Resting just below the southern slopes of Griffith Park, the cozy yet affluent community exudes an appealing small town vibe, with a burgeoning shopping and dining scene unlike any other in Southern California. Here you’ll find tree-lined streets, the Greek Theatre, one of Los Angeles’ most walkable commercial districts known as Los Feliz Village, and some of the most sought after real estate in the world. Now a popular celebrity enclave, Los Feliz features quintessential architectural residences from renowned architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, Wallace Neff, Gregory Ain, and R.M. Schindler, attracting chic and creative professionals and Hollywood entertainers.
Initially known as Rancho Los Feliz, the region was granted to Corporal José Vicente Feliz prior to California becoming a state. An adobe house, built by his successors in the 1830s, still stands on Crystal Springs Drive in Griffith Park, named after Griffith J. Griffiths, another prominent figure in Los Angeles history. Griffiths, a mining and real estate magnate, purchased a large section of the Rancho and consequently donated most of it to the city of Los Angeles to be used as a park.
Today, Griffith Park with its many trails, Griffith Observatory and Zoo, is one of the largest urban parks in the nation, five times the size of New York City’s Central Park. Other parts of the land were later developed and became the communities of Los Feliz and Silver Lake.
