Hancock Park

Hancock Park is an upscale residential area of Greater Wilshirein central Los Angeles. The boundaries of this compact community are Wilshire Blvd, Melrose Ave, Van Nessand La Brea Ave, some of the most coveted addresses in the LA phone book. Home to the Hollywood elite long before the Westside became in vogue, the area was conveniently close to Paramount Studios and many of the tree-lined streets were used as backdrops and sets for movies including Keystone Cops and more recently War Games. Past residents include Mae West, Nat King Cole and millionaire Howard Hughes.

The 1920s neighborhood was built around the grounds of a private golf club, the Wilshire Country Club. It took its name from philanthropist George Allan Hancock, who developed the neighborhood using profits from the family oil drilling business in Rancho la Brea. Some of the best architects in America were commissioned to design palatial two-story residences in a range of classic architectural styles. Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, American Colonial Revival and English Revival styles are all well represented. Designed without fenced boundaries, the stately residences are set back at least 50 feet from the street behind long lawns as per the original ordinances laid down by G. Allan Hancock. Driveways often lead through a covered porte cochere to the rear garage. To maintain the unspoiled beauty of the quiet streets, most electricity and telephone lines are buried underground.

Hancock Park retains its careful balance of culture, cuisine, architecture and community ambience in the 1.59 square mile neighborhood. Residents are among the wealthiest in the USA, making this a highly desirable area to live. The area has a sizeable population of Orthodox Jews, mainly due to it being within walking distances of the Hebrew school and synagogues on La Brea Avenue. One of the original mansions on S. June Street has been the residence of the British Consul-General to Los Angeles since 1957. Guests at the residence include the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
