The Secret is getting out. So do you know where Baldwin Hills CA is?

Posted on Nov 12, 2008 by in Active Rain | 0 comments

When I moved to Los Angeles about twelve years ago I got a listing near View Park and Baldwin Hills. I was very excited, one listing came after another. They were nice middle class neighborhood homes one of the sellers was trying to move up in home and we looked in Baldwin Hills. In those days it was the best kept secret. This was an upper middle class to very affluent neighborhood.

 Views were and are  out of this world. Postcard view of Downtown Los Angeles, views of the Hollywood Sign, views of Griffith Park Observatory and the Hollywood Hills. At night it was magical to see the lights.(price was very reasonable in comparison to the Hollywood Hills homes)

 So you ask where is Baldwin Hills? Baldwin Hills is in southwestern Los Angeles, CA. It consists of part of unincorporated Los Angeles County, View Park, Windsor Hills and Ladera Heights. Borders on the West are Culver City and on the South East bordered by Inglewood.

 Now the secret is almost out, there is a show on BET called Baldwin Hills. I have mixed emotions about the word getting out. The demographics were African American celebrities, judges, doctors. The locals nicknamed it the “Black Beverly Hills”. Some of the famous residence consisted of the late Ray Charles, Nancy Wilson, Tina Turner and the late Mayor of Los Angeles Tom Bradley to name a few. Presently there are celebrities still living there whose names I will not mention. Some have won Oscars others have been nominated.

 This neighborhood, just as any other part of Los Angeles consists of whites, Asians and Latino families residing there, just in smaller per cent. The homes are boasting of Views, and great living square feet, with pools and spas.

 My clients and I used to laugh, once Starbucks and Barnes & Noble move in, then the word is going to get out and it will not be a secret any more. Well I just noticed that Starbucks in opening near by and the word is getting out.
