Laid-back. Artsy. Family-focused. View-filled.
Everyone’s buzzing about Mar Vista. This up-and-coming neighborhood near Venice Beach and Marina del Rey has a laid-back, hipster vibe while at the same time being community-focused and family-oriented. Downtown walls are lined with murals, and most homes are within walking distance of stylish boutique shops and international restaurants and grocery stores. Just minutes from the beach, Mar Vista offers flat streets filled with custom-builds and mid-century homes, distinctive businesses and some of the best ocean views in the city (hence its name, “sea view”), making it one of the most sought-after areas on the west side. Locals are a mix of new arrivals and families that have lived there for generations.
Home types: Classic properties such as the tract of mid-century-modern homes designed by Gregory Ain, elegant 1920s-to-1940s properties lining Mar Vista’s downtown area along Grand View Boulevard and attractive new custom-builds.
