It’s a good time to live near Culver City!
Apple’s future 128,000-square-foot digs and Amazon Studios’ expansion add to the already bustling tech hub, area eateries are some of the best in all of Southern California, and home prices are hotter than ever. According to Zillow, Culver City’s median values were up 12.7 percent in 2018, and expected to rise almost 7 percent in 2019. That why buyers are so excited about our three to four bedroom single-family detached homes, conveniently situated less than two miles from downtown Culver City. Priced from just $1,295,000, the anticipation is building as construction nears completion.
Finding an affordable home in this coveted location typically means buying something much older, with far less square footage than you would like, and in need of major renovations — which can be costly and a huge hassle to live through. Buyers at 11724 Culver love that they can move right in to a spacious, brand-new detached home with up to 2,473 square feet of open-concept living, and just a few minutes away from everything that Culver City has to offer.
“In Los Angeles, location is everything. This is especially true when it comes to the tech startups that call L.A. home. Until recently, it was almost uncommon to see a tech company headquartered outside of Santa Monica or Venice, but that’s not the case anymore,” said Built in Los Angeles. “Culver City has always been an important place for the entertainment industry. Because of its central location, it’s no surprise the neighborhood has attracted a number of tech companies over recent years.”
In addition to the new Amazon Studios and Apple locations, Culver City is home to popular gaming companies, storage startups, media and consumer electronics heavyweights like Beats Music, and digital media powerhouse PopSugar. The city is also known for its vibrant arts community, noted as one of the 10 “Best Arts Districts” in the nation by USA Today, with an array of contemporary galleries and artist studios.
Recreation is also abundant, including eleven city parks that provide ample space to play and exercise. LA Weekly calls the Culver City Stairs “one of the best spots for athletes looking for a challenge” and the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Center offers picnic sites, tot lots, a fishing lake and five miles of hiking trails.
Equally desirable is the city’s entertainment, dining, and shopping scene — making it a must-visit destination for leisure activities. The recent influx of design-centric businesses like Nike and Apple have brought with them ‘an onslaught of aesthetically minded shops and restaurants,” says Vogue. “Its architecture is extremely varied, ranging from Renaissance Revival–style historic buildings (like the Culver Hotel) to architect Eric Owens Moss’s body of experimental office spaces that dominate the industrial Hayden Tract. And, unlike other parts of L.A., alternative transportation is a viable option — a bike path that runs along the Ballona Creek will take you from Culver City to the beach, and the L.A. metro will get you downtown in 40 minutes.”
Top-reviewed eateries draw diners from all over the Westside, and those who purchase a home at 11724 Culver will be just minutes away from buzzed-about spots like Destroyer, known for its “modern twists on breakfast and lunch,” K-ZO, a Japanese gem that Zagat calls one of “the best in the West;” Roy Choi’s A-Frame, offering a tropical menu and exotic cocktails; and, of course, Vespertine, which has become one of the most popular and talked-about restaurants in all of L.A.
For shopping, your choices are just as vast, including Platform, an outdoor mall with manicured cactus gardens and design details that make it every bit as fun to look at as it is to shop in; the West Coast offshoot of Brooklyn boutique Bird; Arcana, a not-to-be-missed bookstore in the former Helms Bakery complex; upscale bodega Hi Lo Liquor; and Stanley’s Wet Goods, a Venice Boulevard spot “dedicated to sustainable wines and small-batch beers and spirits.”
