What’s the Neighborhood Like?
Many of the homes in the area are historic, and the people that live there like that nostalgic charm. Many homes were built in the 20’s and 30’s and most were just bungalows at the time. There are occassionaly really special homes for sale like the craftsman home we recently sold at 1323 Cota which was once owned by the Torrance family and sat on an incredible 10,000+ foot lot. Not all homes in the area are historic and there are some post WWII tract type homes as well as lots in which the homes were knocked down at some point to make way for new homes or townhomes. There are also some larger townhome or condo complexes in the areas as well. In general driving down these fantastic streets is like going back in time.
The highlight of the area is the downtown area. As with the rest of the neighborhood it has a real historic feel with old, but remodeled brick buildings reminiscent of main street America. There has been a real revitalization of the area with an influx of some great restaurants and breweries. Some of our favorites are Local Kitchen, Strand Brewing and Depot Restaurant.
