Westchester

Welcome to Westchester

Family-friendly community with small-town vibes just outside of central Los Angeles.
 
Just a short drive outside of central Los Angeles and south of the beautiful Venice Beach lies one of Southern California’s true gems. Westchester is a beautiful community with a family-friendly atmosphere and small-town sensibility that has helped to make it one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the area.
 
Primarily used for agricultural production throughout the 19th century, the area began seeing a population surge in the early 1900s due to the tremendous and rapid growth of Los Angeles. In order to meet the demand for affordable homes, the area was quickly turned into a residential community. Families looking to take advantage of the exceptional prices, small-town feel, and proximity to the hustle and bustle of LA soon moved in.
 
Nowadays, the town is known for its beautiful homes and properties, idyllic suburban atmosphere, and community-oriented and welcoming neighbors.
