TRANSPORTATION: The Dash stops near our property, and 1 mile from the "Highland Park" Metro Station (Line: Golden Line). Local stores and restaurants are all within walking distance.
SPECIAL: Garvanza District: considered a sub district of Highland Park, got its name for the wild sweet peas, i.e. garbanzo beans that used to grow on the hillsides.
Garvanza District was the heart of the Arts and Crafts movement in Los Angeles and a bohemian artists' colony, and is today one of Northeast LA's hidden treasures. This small and hilly area filled with historic buildings has more than enough charm and character needed to stand out on its own.
