Mar Vista

  • Population39,481
  • Median Home Value$1,573,800

Mar Vista is a residential neighborhood located on the Westside of Los Angeles, California bordered on the northeast by Palms, on the east, southeast, and south by Culver City, on the west by Venice and on the northwest by Santa Monica. Mostly comprised of quiet residential streets and laid-back coffee shops and restaurants, Mar Vista is an unassuming neighborhood with beach-town ideals.

Distinctly family-friendly and coupled with the recent influx of Silicon Beach business and employees, young professionals and families alike, appreciate Mar Vista for its centrality, easy access to the beach and its affordability. Originally a lima bean field, Mar Vista was designed by architect Gregory Ain as 52-home development aimed to infuse postwar housing for the new middle class with modern design elements.In 2003, the Mar Vista Tract became the City of L.A.'s first designated historic district containing solely Modern-style, post-World War II homes. Remarkably, all of the homes are still standing and well-preserved, and the tract serves as a time capsule to the 1940's.

A short drive from the ocean and with easy access to the 405 freeway, Mar Vista is ideally suited for those looking for tree-lined suburban streets with well-cared-for postwar homes. The architecture runs the gamut from historical Spanish homes on Grandview and modern architectural atop Mar Vista Hill, provide residents with spectacular views of the Pacific. The median home value in Mar Vista is $1.5M (Q1/18).

The Community

Having recently celebrated its 90th anniversary as a Los Angeles community, ties run deep in Mar Vista. It has always had a small-town feel, with a strong sense of community pride. A place where residents know each other by name, and most like they grew up together.

Mar Vista Hill plays host to the North Venice Little League Park and below it, the Ocean View Community Gardens. Residents also utilize the Mar Vista Recreation Center, which boasts an outdoor roller hockey rink, seasonal swimming pool, baseball diamonds, auditorium, picnic areas, playground, outdoor basketball courts (lighted) and gymnasium.

At Mar Vista's Venice and Grand View Commercial District you can find historic buildings built between 1924 and 1960 (including the original Mar Vista Library) in a wide array of architectural styles. These streets are also home to a vibrant Sunday Farmers' Market, laid-back hand-brewed coffee shops and up and coming restaurants. With the exception of Wholefoods at National and Barrington and the Japanese supermarket chain, Mitsuwa on Centinela and Venice, big-box businesses are far and few between.

The Culture

Vintage vibes have long been a tradition in Mar Vista, where sidewalk book exchanges and consignment store are in equal measure to unassuming restaurants and coffee stores. Mar Vista holds a quarterly art-walk to bring together art lovers to support one another and the community.

The Lifestyle

A slower, sleepier neighbor to nearby Venice and Culver City, the community’s appeal lays with its ability to slow down the pace of the surrounding hustle and bustle; grab a beach cruiser, enjoy the scenic tree-lined street or take a relaxed bike to the beach or nearby parks. Both family-friendly and community-oriented, neighbors frequent the parks and recreation centers that dot the community, and the pace is decidedly unhurried and relentlessly unassuming. If residential serenity is the goal; Mar Vista is an idyllic place to live and play.
