Sunset Boulevard Real Estate

Sunset Boulevard is 22 miles of freedom running through the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods. It is the hallmark of Hollywood. It’s known for its glamorous lifestyle and has even been the subject of famous movies, including the one that bears its name. 

Sunset Boulevard is sometimes referred to as Guitar Row because of the large number of guitar stores and music companies that have established themselves there. The iconic recording studios Sunset Sound Studios and United Western Recorders are based here. Many of the actors, musicians and other artists live in the area.

Although Sunset Boulevard is busy and crowded, the private properties located along it are secluded and offer an exclusive view of the city and the Pacific Ocean. Residents are right in the heart of the action while maintaining their privacy.

If you are interested in joining this prestigious community and finding your own piece of land in one of the neighborhoods along Sunset Boulevard, contact James Collin Campbell.

This legendary route passes through some of the most representative neighborhoods of Los Angeles.

The Strip is also home to many classic concert venues, including the Rainbow Bar & Grill and the Roxy Theatre.

Billy Wilder honored the street with his famous film Sunset Boulevard, released in 1950. The film inspired one of Broadway’s greatest composers, Andrew Lloyd Webber, to write a comedy called Sunset Boulevard as well.

Is Sunset Boulevard safe?

Sunset Boulevard is a very busy area, day and night. The experiences you can get are very diverse depending on where you are. Generally speaking, it is a relatively safe place to be, especially since patrols are becoming more frequent. But as with all places filled with big nightclubs and world-famous entertainment venues, it’s best to be cautious when you go there at late hours.

Why is it called Sunset Boulevard?

Sunset Boulevard was originally a small dirt road 600 feet long located near the old Plaza. The development of the city of Los Angeles led to the expansion of the boulevard. Sunset Boulevard was registered in the street department’s records in 1888. From that point on, its popularity grew steadily as the road was graded, paved and pushed further west. Legend has it that the street was named by a city employee who was crossing the westbound boulevard and noticed the beauty of the setting sun.

How long does it take to drive Sunset Boulevard?

From Crescent Heights to the ocean, Sunset Boulevard is about 22 miles long, which is about a 30-minute trip. But it all depends on whether you use this route during rush hour or not, and the type of transportation you use.  Most of the time, traffic is fairly slow, especially during rush hour and in both directions. When there is little or no traffic, however, the boulevard is an extremely fast lane as it has few short-timed traffic signals, especially west of Doheny Drive.
