Sunset Plaza Drive Real Estate and Homes for Sale
When in Los Angeles, one of the destinations that visitors flock to is Sunset Boulevard’s most iconic stretch, the Sunset Strip. Here you’ll find Sunset Plaza, one of L.A.’s foremost shopping and dining destinations, where people often linger to see and be seen. Despite all this, it remains a low-key and relaxing place to be during the day where you’ll find outdoor cafes, restaurants, salons, spas, boutiques, and retail shops. What makes it so unique is that it provides a village-like feel to visitors, with its wide sidewalks, al fresco dining options, and warm community atmosphere.
This charming and fashionable retail and dining hotspot spans two blocks of Sunset Boulevard and is located on both sides of the Strip and bookended by La Cienega and San Vicente Boulevards. Apart from restaurants and cafés such as Cravings and Le Petit Four, it features a host of boutiques like H. Lorenzo and Calypso St. Barth as well as luxury clothing brands like Armani A/X, Nicole Miller, and BCBG Maxazria, among many others. There’s also a variety of salons and other services.
Contrasting with the hum of Sunset Plaza is the area that rises above it – drive up the winding Sunset Plaza Drive and you’ll be entering a quieter, more exclusive world. Here in the western section of the Hollywood Hills is where you will find some of the region’s most desirable residences. Many are architectural masterpieces and the area is home to more than a few famous residents that are mostly from the music and entertainment industry. This is why it’s not unusual to spot celebrities grabbing a bite or getting their retail fix at Sunset Plaza.
Homes in this area have their own unique architectural styles, ranging from classic Streamline Moderne to Mid-century Modern to a variety of contemporary residences. Many look out on spectacular long-range views.
