With its quiet, tree-lined streets and ready access to downtown, the Fox Hills neighborhood offers residents a suburban escape in the midst of a bustling city. It’s easy to forget when you’re in this sleepy community that it lies just minutes away from the nation’s television and motion picture hub, Los Angeles.
Home designs in the Fox Hills community are varied. You will find craftsman, mid-century modern, ranch-style, traditional-style, and Mediterranean-style homes ranging in age from the 1920s through the 1950s. There are also newer homes in the area, such as condominiums built in the 2000s. The community is bounded by West Slauson Avenue to the north, South La Cienega Boulevard to the east, the San Diego 405 Freeway and West Centinela to the south, and west. The area is primarily single-family residences, but there are a variety of commercial buildings, including shops, restaurants, and service establishments.
Of the many appealing aspects of Fox Hills is the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, which is located outside of the community to the northeast. This park includes lawns and landscaped areas, seven miles of hiking trails through native coastal sage scrub habitat, a community center, picnic sites, playground, baseball diamonds, volleyball court, lotus pond, and lake for fishing.
Also nearby to the north is West Los Angeles College, which is a community college that sits on 70 park-like acres overlooking Culver City, Marina del Rey and Greater Los Angeles. From the highest points of the campus on a clear day you can see the Pacific Ocean. Also to the west is Marina del Rey, which is the largest man-made small boat harbor in the U.S.
