Franklin Hills, an enchanting mix of 1920s' to mid-century homes.
The Shakespeare Bridge serves as a gateway to Franklin Hills along Franklin Avenue between Talmadge Avenue and St George Streets. Originally build in 1926, the Gothic style bridge was designated as Historic-Cultural Monument #126 in 1974. After the Northridge earthquake, the bridge was retrofitted but rebuilt in a way to preserve its historic appearance.Franklin Hills is a unique community which is particularly pedestrian friendly, at least if you're up for a real work out. The Franklin Hills Public Stairway system consists of a series of 14 staircases originally built in the 1920's to provide homeowners with pedestrian access to the trolley lines below. The trolley is no longer, but residents and visitors alike still use the stairways for exercise and as shortcuts from one section of the neighborhood to another. Currently there are 10 properties for sale in the Franklin Hills area of Los Feliz:
|Address||Price||Beds||Baths||Square footage||Lot Size|
