Its location between the Los Angeles and Glendale city cores made it a highly sought after neighborhood beginning in the 1920s. The vast majority of the homes and structures in Atwater Village have never been demolished, but instead have changed in use or have been renovated), resulting in the neighborhood having one of the highest number of historic structures built before 1939 in Los Angeles.  Today, the neighborhood is rapidly gentrifying due to younger buyers from adjacent areas such as Silver Lake and Los Feliz.

Anaheim Homes For Sale

ANAHEIM HOMES FOR SALE | NEW LISTINGS | UNLISTED HOMES

anaheim

What once was a large meadowy area with orange trees and dirt roads, now Anaheim is a city that has become Orange County’s playground.   Anaheim was one of the first areas to be developed in the 1800’s for farming interests, and it was the center for track home developments in the middle part of the last century.

Because of it’s blue collar industries, Anaheim was largely inhabited by working families living in modest homes  with very little culture for advanced professional movement within the city.  If someone wanted to move up, they moved away from Anaheim.

Once Disneyland anchored itself in this city within deep Orange County, tourism grew to support the resort, and eventually tourist attractions established themselves independently of the mighty mouse.

how-much-is-your-home-worth

Anaheim is a large city that often uncomfortably sits within the Southern California capital of suburban life.  Today, Anaheim is the playground for Orange County, Los Angeles County, and San Diego locals. With 3 national sports teams, Disneyland Resort, Convention Centers that host world class performances, and venues for music performances, Anaheim is a go-to destination for locals.

ANAHEIM HOMES FOR SALE | NEW LISTINGS | UNLISTED HOMES

The surrounding housing is smaller in the immediate areas due to it’s roots of modest residents.  In the 1980’s and 1990’s a surge of development brought large houses into Anaheim’s hills.  The area had so many larger-than-necessary homes it gained national attention and spawned the term McMansions.

Due to it’s proximity to so many freeways, it’s center location to most of the points of interest in Orange County, Anaheim is a necessary point of importance for the county.

As it was historically, Anaheim is a great place for first time buyers because of it’s large pool of modestly sized homes.  However currently, the area offers industries for professional development and cultural sites for a enriching home to plant roots.  It’s also a great place to live for people who are advanced in their professions, with larger homes, and locations that suite people with above modest means.

Anaheim is a large city with many community districts outside of the large modern parts of the city.

Downtown Anaheim is located in the heart of the Colony Historic District. Downtown is the administrative heart of the city where you find City Hall, Anaheim West Tower, Anaheim Police Headquarters, the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce and the Main Library.

Anaheim Ice (formerly Disney Ice), the Downtown Anaheim Farmer’s Market, a food hall in a historic 1919 Sunkist packing house, and the Center Street Promenade are also located in Downtown Anaheim.  In the Fall of 2007, The Muzeo, the newest major museum in Orange County, opened its doors for the first time and is located next to Anaheim West Tower.

Pearson Park is also located in Downtown Anaheim, and is named after Charles Pearson, who was Mayor of Anaheim during the time Walt Disney opened Disneyland in Anaheim. One of the major attractions located in Pearson Park is the Pearson Park Amphitheater.

In the Colony Historic District just west of Downtown Anaheim is the Mother Colony House, which was built by George Hanson and was the first house built in Anaheim, the Founder of Anaheim. Today, it is Anaheim’s and Orange County’s oldest museum still open to the public. The Stoffel House is a Victorian Mansion located next door to the Mother Colony House. Originally the Victorian Home was occupied by the Stoffel Family,  early pioneer residents of Anaheim. The home served as headquarters for the local Red Cross until the early 1990s.

In 2010–2011, the Woelke-Stoeffel house became refurnished and is now part of the Founder’s Park complex. Founder’s Park includes the Mother Colony house and a carriage house, which serves as a museum of Anaheim’s agricultural history.

Laurel Canyon Homes For Sale

LAUREL CANYON HOMES FOR SALE NEW LISTINGS | UNLISTED HOMES

laurel_canyon

Laurel Canyon is named for it’s thoroughfare, Laurel Canyon Boulevard. However, unlike other nearby canyon neighborhoods, Laurel Canyon has houses lining one side of the main street most of the way up to Mulholland Drive. There are many side roads that branch off the main canyon, but most are not through streets, giving a rare self-contained nature of the neighborhood.

Laurel Canyon found itself a nexus of counterculture activity and attitudes in the 1960s, becoming famous as home to many of L.A.’s rock musicians, such as Frank Zappa; Jim Morrison of The Doors; The Byrds; Buffalo Springfield; and Love.

LAUREL CANYON HOMES FOR SALE NEW LISTINGS | UNLISTED HOMES

The icon of Laurel Canyon is the Canyon Country Store, on Laurel Canyon Boulevard, the most tangible relic of the area’s musical heyday. The Country Store is a neighborhood institution and a purveyor of surprisingly good wines and delicious custom-made deli sandwiches. Resolutely ungentrified by the same owners since 1982, the red-brick building still packs a flower-power punch in its psychedelic murals, bougainvillea-splashed patio.

The area continues to appeal to residents with bohemian and artistic sensibilities, in part due to the area offering some of the most affordable real estate in the Hollywood Hills West area. Since Laurel Canyon offers some small lots without a view, the neighborhood allows buyers to purchase in the Hollywood Hills at a much lower price point than neighboring areas. While this is true, the neighborhood is also home to numerous examples of modern architecture as well as lots with panoramic views. Laurel Hills is a subdivision located within the Laurel Canyon area.

Burbank Homes For Sale

BURBANK HOMES FOR SALE | NEW LISTINGS | UNLISTED HOMES

Home to most of LA’s major movie studios – including Warner Bros, Disney and Universal – ‘the Valley’ is an exercise in sprawl. Car culture was also basically invented in the Valley, which claims to have given birth to the mini-mall, the drive-in movie theater, the drive-in bank and the drive-in restaurant.

Attractions are few and scattered about; Burbank has the studios, and North Hollywood, west of here, is home to a growing arts scene. Studio City, west of Universal, has some superb sushi on Ventura Blvd. At last count there were 21 sushi bars within a six-block radius, which is why some call it LA’s Sushi Row.  Studio City’s grooviest shopping and cafe strip can be found on leafy Tujunga Blvd.

Note that temperatures here are usually 20°F (11°C) higher – and pollution levels worse – than in areas further south. But it’s not all bad. In fact, with lower-cost housing and the lack of congestion, the Valley is more laidback and down to earth than elsewhere in the city.

homes-under-500k-cp-ad-rsi-j

Burbank consists of two distinct areas: a downtown, in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains, and flatlands, at the east end of the San Fernando Valley.

The neighborhood within Burbank set at the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains has a more upscale feeling than the communities to the West of the 5. The yards tend to be spacious, remodeled and many have been added onto. You will also find newer homes which were built after tearing down the original home. West of the 5 is flatter, and feels more middle income. A great community for bike riding, pushing strollers and walking. There is a 2 mile running/biking path along Chandler Blvd. In the Southwest corner of Burbank is the Equestrian community which is well-treed and has many charming homes.

Entertainment has generally replaced the defense industry as the primary employer, who are attracted by the relative safety and security offered by its own police and fire departments, highly rated schools and hospital. Other reasons cited are its small town feel while located only 10 minutes away by car to the hip clubs and restaurants of Hollywood.

The revitalized downtown Burbank provides an urban mix of shopping, dining, and entertainment. The San Fernando Strip is an exclusive mall designed to be a modern urban village, with apartments above the mall. An upscale shopping district is located in the state-of-the-art Empire Center neighborhood. The Burbank Town Center is a retail complex adjacent to the downtown core that was built in two phases between 1991 and 1992.
