The residential community of South Carthay is located in Central Los Angeles, California. This unique neighborhood has been designated with a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone to protect the character and historic buildings that sit within. It is surrounded by the main thoroughfares of La Cienega Boulevard to the west and Pico Boulevard to the south. These busy streets are lined with retail shops, services, ad restaurants. Because this is not a large community, residents can easily walk to these businesses for a bite to eat or to visit a shop. Residents that choose to walk in the neighborhood usually find that they enjoy the warm, sunny weather, with little rain in Central Los Angeles. Winters are mild and summers are quite hot. On very hot summer days, walking may be more enjoyable in the morning or evening when temperatures are cooler, especially for your hairy hound! Pack some water for your trip to stay hydrated and healthy.

This area was designed in the 1930s and features mostly single family and some multi-family homes. These homes and properties feature Spanish Colonial Revival Architecture and have been designated as a protected historical area. There are 147 homes with red tiled roofs and wrought iron with glazed tile features. All the houses are different, giving the district a unique Mediterranean flavor.  Any new buildings need to fit in with the culture and feel of the neighborhood and preserve the community's character. The area is relatively flat and Orlando Avenue and La Jolla Avenue intersect in the south at angles to form a “V” with Olympic Place which connects them at the north to form a triangle. Main roads forming the boundary of the area to the west and south have commercial activity and plenty of traffic while the rest of this residential neighbourhood is quieter, with lots of landscaping and beautiful yards and properties.
