Hancock Park A historic and affluent area of some of the most well-preserved single family residences in Los Angeles, ranging from 1920’s California bungalows to grand old estates. Approximately 2.2 square miles in size, this urban neighborhood with almost 1,200 homes was developed in the 1920s by the Hancock family with profits earned from oil drilling in the former Rancho La Brea. The Hancock Park development was started on Rossmore Avenue and moved west to Highland Avenue in 1921. Most of the homes in Hancock Park are over 3,000 square feet and built on larger-than-average lot sizes of 10,000 square feet or more. In general, property prices start in the low $1 million range for a smaller home and can go as high as $10 million for a majestic estate in the gated community of Fremont Place or on the streets near the Wilshire Country Club golf course, namely Hudson Avenue, Muirfield Road and June Street. Commonly, home styles consist of authentic Old World Spanish, Mediterranean, Tudor, Traditional, Cape Cod and Country English. Architects such as Paul Williams, A.C. Chrisholm and John Austin were hired to design homes for many of the city’s pioneer families including Doheny, Chandler, Huntington, Van Nuys and Crocker.
