Bird Streets Real Estate

Since the turn of the century, the Bird Streets have become one of the most desirable areas in all of Los Angeles. The appeal of the neighborhood can be attributed to a few factors: views, location, ambiance, architecture, and reputation. As young Hollywood A-listers flocked to the area for unobstructed city and ocean views and private tranquility within an easy drive to the major studios and the world-class entertainment, dining, and shopping found in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and along the Sunset Strip, people took notice. More architectural jewel boxes popped up along the hillside as developers improved lots in an effort to find the next high-profile celebrity buyer and the area is now known as an enclave for exemplar contemporary architecture. Doheny Estates is the northernmost section of the Bird Streets and typically offers some of the best views from its perch atop the foothills.

Bird Streets Information

The Bird Streets neighborhood is found within the 90069 zip code and borders the Trousdale Estates development of Beverly Hills to the west, Sunset Plaza and the rest of the Hollywood Hills to the north and east, and La Collina Estates, Lower Doheny, Sierra Towers, the Sunset Strip, and West Hollywood to the south.

Many architectural masterpieces dot the hillside, in styles such as mid-century modern, ultramodern glass jewel boxes, traditional Mediterranean, and even the rare Cape Cod. The area also features many older nondescript homes on prime view lots with unobstructed views of the Los Angeles basin, which is why the area has been a target, in recent years, for developers who want to build a sexy Hollywood Hills home with the type of views only Los Angeles offers.

Much of the Bird Streets area features terraced lots to preserve the valuable views for neighbors; homes in the neighborhood with the best views will sell for twice the price as those without.

Although the neighborhood gets its name from the streets named after birds such as Blue Jay Way, Oriole Drive, Oriole Way, Oriole Lane, Tanager Way, Thrasher Avenue, Skylark Lane, Nightingale Drive, Robin Drive, Swallow Drive, Kinglet Drive, Thrush Way, Warbler Way, Warbler Place, Flicker Way, Flicker Place, Bluebird Avenue, Bobolink Place, Mockingbird Place, and Vireo Drive, non-bird name streets such as Doheny Drive, Sierra Mar Drive, Sierra Mar Place, Marcheeta Place, and Hopen Place can also be found in the area.
