Mar Vista, one of the oldest communities in L.A. and one of the least dense in West L.A., sits beautifully between 3 well known locales: Santa Monica, Venice, and Culver City. Most of its 1920s and 1930s homes rest on gorgeous tree lined streets and have lovely large yards. Though development and demand has pushed home prices higher and higher, it’s still one of the “more affordable” communities west of the 405, plus its remained fairly ethnically diverse. In a city known for its glitz and glamour, Mar Vista retains its “old school” charm - and it’s just a little more than 2 miles the beach. Mar Vista is really a Westside gem, great for singles, families, retirees, just about anyone!
