The hillside homes clustered west of Cal State of L.A. in the University Hills section of El Sereno boast some sweeping views of the mountains and the skyscrapers of downtown Los Angeles. University Hills lacks the midcentury architecture of Silver Lake and the woodsy landscape of Elysian Heights and Mt. Washington. But compared to these and other Eastside hillside neighborhoods, University Hills offers relatively affordable – and large, by Eastside standards – suburban-style homes for people who love their views.
One newly built home at 4969 O’Sullivan Drive includes not only “an awesome panoramic view of Downtown city night lights” but also six bedrooms in 2,400-square feet of space and three levels, according to the listing via Redfin. What the house lacks it style it makes up for in space and price.
