Wilshire Boulevard

There are echoes of that other Wilshire Boulevard in this charming little villa in Berkley Place. Like the gracious Mediterranean ambiance embellished with palm trees and those lovely blue awnings, which match the window trim color.

One doesn’t want to be parochial, but one can’t fail to take an interest in the goings on on one’s own street. Move-in ready isn’t a term necessarily associated with Elizabeth Blvd., but since its listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, the area has been undergoing a steady process of re-gentrification.
