The Hollywood Hills are divided by the Cahuenga Pass (101 Freeway), forming two main neighborhood areas: Hollywood Hills East and Hollywood Hills West. Hollywood Hills East runs from the freeway to Griffith Park. Within the neighborhood you will the smaller enclaves of Beachwood Canyon (a.k.a. Hollywoodland), Bronson Canyon, Hollywood Dell, Lake Hollywood Estates and Franklin Village. The northern border touches Universal City and southern border abuts Downtown Hollywood. All parts of the neighborhood sit below the iconic Hollywood Sign.
Home prices in Hollywood Hills East are pricey compared to the rest of Los Angeles. Here you will find luxury homes and mansions perched on the slopes of the Santa Monica Mountains, all with canyon or city views. Stilted homes jut out over the hillsides, many with large decks that perfect for nighttime stargazing and sweeping views of the basin below.
Architectural styles range widely, from English Tudor, French Normandy, Spanish, Mediterranean and mid-century modern. There are even a few Storybook Homes that look like live action set pieces from Hansel & Gretel.
Vegetation in the hills is lush with many planted trees that provide much-needed shade in the summer. Sycamore, palm and eucalyptus trees are common. Bougainvillea and bird of paradise flowers adorn many outdoor spaces. Expect to find many well-manicured yards. Earth-friendly landscaping is becoming more popular as folks become more eco-conscious and drought cycles more frequent.
