The historic neighborhood of Garvanza is a hidden gem in the Highland Park community of Los Angeles, California. It is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods and is located just twenty minutes from Downtown LA, forty-five minutes from LAX, and thirty-five minutes from Santa Monica. The neighborhood’s name originates from the Garbanzo Bean fields that once filled the area. Its history also includes being the former hub of Los Angeles’ Arts and Crafts movement. In fact, Judson Studios opened here in the 1920s and continues to operate as a thriving stained glass studio. Garvanza is also home to numerous historically significant properties, such as the North Avenue 66’s “Suffragist House.” The historic homes in the neighborhood have been well-preserved and as a result, the community is frequently used in period films. Despite having some of the city’s most picturesque and quietest streets, Garvanza is also conveniently close to the excitement of Highland Park’s cafes, shops, and nightlife.
The area is widely considered one of the hidden treasures in Northeast Los Angeles. It is a small, hilly community roughly bounded by Avenue 64 at Burleigh, the east side of Avenue 66, Metro Right-of-Way Bridge, and the east side of Figueroa stretching to the west side of Avenue 63. Speaking more generally, the neighborhood is thought to be the area between Pasadena city limits to the north, York Boulevard to the south, Hermon and South Pasadena to the east, and Figueroa to the west. Many residents simply say they live in Highland Park. While there are no subway stops or Metro light rail stops within the neighborhood, the Gold Line’s Highland Park Station is nearby to the south. There isn’t a long list of amenities and attractions in the community either, but there are a few, including Ponderosa Cactus, Garvanza Park, and Amara Kitchen. You’ll also find many gorgeous Mid-century post and beam, Victorian, Spanish, Foursquare, and California Craftsman homes in Garvanza.
Much of the neighborhood was built in the late 1800s and into the early twentieth century, therefore many Garvanza homes have been recognized as historic landmarks. That said, there are contemporary homes in Garvanza as well. Many Garvanza properties possess stunning architectural features emblematic of the time the community served as the heart of the Arts and Crafts movement.
