Palms, the oldest neighborhood in the city of Los Angeles, and Mar Vista, a popular Westside community for families, have enjoyed an uptick in popularity in recent years thanks to their central location. Both neighborhoods are known for their ethnic diversity—stop in for a class at Red Diamond Yoga or grab an Americano at Venice Grind to see what we mean. The area is home to some of the most highly educated residents in the city (UCLA is minutes away) and is in close proximity to the brand new Metro Expo Line. Palms-Mar Vista is filled with well-preserved Mid-Century Modern architecture, Craftsman, and Spanish Colonials, and architecturally significant homes from Neil Denarii, Patrick Tighe, and Gregory Ain. Top area private schools include the Windward and Wildwood schools.
