Timelessness in Atwater Village
Named after Harriet Atwater Paramore who was the wife of an investor that bought the land from W.C.B. Richardson, Atwater has blossomed from an undeveloped poppy field into what it is now—a timeless neighborhood.
Atwater Village real estate remains mostly unaltered since subdivision and development of the land began in the early 1900s. Described as the mix of craftsman and revival architectural styles, bungalows set along Brunswick Avenue typify the small town vibe Atwater is known for. Along Perlita Avenue, on the other hand, is a row of post-World War II houses that is distinct from the aforementioned designs.
The village can ask for no better location. Surrounded by the district of Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Glendale, and Glassell Park, the needs and desires of its residents are easily met, as shops are just a few minutes away. Every Sunday, the Atwater Village Farmers' Market opens at ten in the morning. Fresh produce, honey, nuts, and other goods can be acquired by consumers in the stalls at the Wells Fargo Bank parking lot.
The village is served by schools such as Atwater Avenue Elementary School, Washington Irving Middle School, and John Marshall High School. Additionally, the National Catholic Educational Institution operates the Holy Trinity School. Atwater Village has a handful of riding clubs as well; there's the equestrian center of the Los Angeles Police Department. If you have some horses of your own, you'll be pleased to know that several properties in the village are zoned for horses.
