Don’t let the name fool you—residents live large in Little Holmby. Tucked between UCLA and Holmby Hills, Little Holmby is an oasis of charm in an often hectic metropolis. Here the hustle and bustle, the power and prestige of nearby Los Angeles fade away amid rolling hills and winding tree-lined streets, which meander past gorgeous estates.
Little Holmby is like the best of 20th-century architecture, preserved in a time capsule. You won’t find many teardowns here. Tearing down and replacing the traditional English, French, Mediterranean, and Spanish Colonial estates established here between the 1920s and the 1950s would be architectural malpractice.
Sandwiched between the Platinum Triangle and one of America’s top universities, homes here are precious at a median just south of $5 million and $1,200 per square foot. Compared to the better-known Beverly Hills and Bel Air, however, this represents luxury living at a substantial value. Entry-level homes in Little Holmby start closer to $1.5 million.
Despite the secluded feel, Little Holmby is bordered by famous LA boulevards the likes of Sunset and Wilshire. It’s a hop, skip, and a jump away from Westwood Village, with shopping and dining. Many people who associate Southern California with the beach are disappointed with how far away from the coast many desirable LA neighborhoods lie. Not so with Little Holmby—in addition to its bucolic charm, Little Holmby’s central location puts attractions from the ocean to Disneyland a reasonable car trip away.
Newcomers to Little Holmby will find their neighbors to be friendly, professional, intellectual, and welcoming. They love their small-town bubble in the big city and form a tight-knit community to preserve the homey vibe. Steeped in history and beauty, Little Holmby is one of the most desirable corners of Los Angeles to call home.
