Westchester Real Estate & Homes for Sale in California
Located on the Westside of Los Angeles just north of the Los Angeles International Airport and east of the beachside community of Playa Del Rey, Westchester was originally a ranching community and was transformed with the birth of Hollywood and the advent of air travel, with the homes originally being built for the veterans coming home from World War II. Today, Westchester truly remains a residentially centered town and provides that hometown feel that is often missing in other cities. (more)
