Welcome to Westchester
A secluded community with a close-knit feel
At the edge of Los Angeles’ Westside, this secluded community is home to the Los Angeles International Airport, Otis College of Art and Design, and Loyola Marymount University. This highly sought-after location is only a couple of minutes away from Marina Del Rey, the Santa Monica Pier, Culver City, and the Pacific Ocean.
Westchester is extremely close to LAX — a perfect location for frequent flyers. In just a few minutes, you can board any international flight and travel all over the world. LAX has continued to expand in recent years, making Westchester an international hub.
There are multiple Westchester properties waiting for the right owner, and with a little love, they will become the perfect home. Many of the homes in Westchester are quaint one or two-story bungalows that have stood the test of time. Their insides are beautifully refurbished to appeal to anyone’s eye with a clean, crisp finish.
