Angelino Heights is a small upper-middle-class neighborhood located deep within Los Angeles. It is the second oldest neighborhood in Los Angeles, with only Bunker Hill being older. As such it is home to many of the city's oldest buildings, most notably a number of Victorian town-houses which have been intensively preserved and frequently copied in later developments. It is known for steep hills, which helped in drainage during early settlement. With no major thoroughfares, it is quiet and almost exclusively residential, although it is bordered on one side by the Los Angeles Freeway, making transport to and from relatively easy.
The picturesque nature of Angelino Heights, along with the Victorian architecture, has made it popular with filmmakers and television producers. Most notably, the shows "Charmed" and "Journeyman" used the district as a regular shooting location, although both shows claimed that the houses were in San Francisco. Many city-mansions and city-houses were built in the area, changing style with the times. The region is also home to a number of historical-cultural locations, most notably Bob's Market. Angelino Heights was the first region of Los Angeles to be declared a recognized historic district.
Due to the unique and rare architecture, central location and full-sized houses, area real estate is generally expensive, with houses entering and leaving the market rarely and at high prices. Due to the area's status as a historic district, many of the area homes cannot be remodeled or changed in such a way as to damage or change the architecture. There are few apartments or condominiums in the area. In addition to the large Victorian and Art Deco homes, there are a number of smaller, more modest and affordable homes, although the high property values within the area make these likewise expensive. Area realtors are essential for negotiating the complex local market.
Angelino Heights Attractions
The area is zoned to Los Angeles USD schools, with all students attending Betty Plasencia Elementary School and Belmont High School. Middle school students are split between King Middle School and Virgil Middle School. Due to high revenues from property taxes and a longtime commitment to student excellence, these are among the highest-rated schools in Los Angeles, and indeed California in general. The neighborhood is devoid of industrial areas, and commercial areas are relatively small. Restaraunts and grocery stores are abundant, but high-rise buildings are not, due to the difficulty of building such structures on steep hills. Most residents of the neighborhood work at home or commute using the freeway.} ?>
