Hancock Park at a GlanceSotheby's International Realty
Hancock Park is a historic and affluent neighborhood in Los Angeles, which was developed in the 1920s by the Hancock family with profits earned from oil drilling. The residential community is centrally located in the city and is bound by Wilshire Boulevard, Melrose Avenue, Higland Avenue and Rossmore Avenue. Unusual for most LA neighborhoods, residences in Hancock Park tend to be set back from the street, most power and telephone lines are buried, and fences are a rarity. It is located near both the Wilshire Country Club and the Los Angeles Tennis Club. The average household income of its residents consistently ranks among the highest in the United States and Hancock Park continues to be one of the most desirable areas in all of Southern California to live.
