  West of Windward Circle is a neighborhood ... which I call the Milwood "Trapezoid" ... bounded by Abbot Kinney Boulevard, California Avenue, Lincoln Boulevard and Venice Boulevard. (The area is also referred to as the walk street area, which can be confused with the walk streets along the beach.)  
    Within this charming area there are 4 walk streets ... in combination only 10 blocks ... which are very sought-after by young creatives. The drive streets have the same charm with larger lots ... many homes have separate studios/alley houses.  
  There is some excellent contemporary architecture in the neighborhood ... however; the emphasis is on restoring/enlarging the old 1920's California bungalows in keeping with the original style.    
  The neighborhood is very close and friendly ... involved in maintaining the historic quality of the walk streets. There are many block parties throughout the year.  
  This could be called the garden community of Venice as the area sports some beautiful landscaping. The lush feeling is prevalent throughout the area. There is great pride-of-ownership.  


  Lots along the walk streets are 35'-40' wide and 85'-90' deep. Front yards are very much incorporated into the living areas. Most of the drive street lots are larger ... many 40' wide by 135' deep ... offering enough property to have two units. The zoning is R-2, which allows two units on 5000 sq. ft. lots. There is almost no vacant land.

Prices in the Milwood Trapezoid range from the lower $1,000,000's to over $1,600,000 for the small California Bungalows. Larger homes sell in the high $1,000,000's and up. Two and three unit properties sell in the same price ranges and are usually owner-occupied.
