Fairfax District:  Where Culture and Art Collide in The Most Unusual Way

When you hear the name “Fairfax”, you automatically conjure up images of Old Jewish immigrants “kibitzing” at Canter’s Deli and the epicenter of the original Los Angeles Jewish Community, which has spilled over to East and Southwest of this historic Jewish corridor.  While the strip of Fairfax Avenue is lined with kosher bakeries, delis and little shops, you don’t need to be Jewish to enjoy living in this eclectic area near CBS Television City, Farmer’s Market and The Grove. 

When hipsters began to invade the area, it wasn’t long before the Fairfax District became one of the coolest places to provide a confluence of skate culture and Old Judaica.  This highly original and gritty street is the muse of many a creative type and you won’t find any area, quite as authentic and inspiring as this one.  Though prices are beyond the starving artist budget, there are many apartments and interesting studios that are within reach of the many young people that flock to the area.

Everything is walkable and it isn’t unusual to see soccer moms and baby carriages interspersed with skateboarders, joggers, bikers and Hollywood types. At the cusp of Hollywood and the La Brea area, the Fairfax district has blocks of beautiful and distinct homes perfectly located and near many landmark establishments such as Pink’s Hot Dogs, the ultimate Mom and Pop Hot dog stand that has skyrocketed to the status of an American Classic.

We are proud to be a part of the renaissance of this entire area by representing sellers and buyers who are attracted to the vibrant pulse and beautiful homes.   We recently sold 823 N. Poinsettia, a 22,050 square foot lot zoned as a retirement facility for $5.1M.

Schools in the area include many private primary, secondary and high schools.

Fairfax High School is the most notable public School in the area along with Melrose Avenue Elementary.
