Welcome to Hollywood Heights - Santa Monica

Protected as a conservation district, few neighborhoods have preserved their original charm as well. The distinctive 1920s Tudor cottages that predominate in this little area just south of White Rock Lake lend it a distinct identity. That character, plus access to Lakewood Elementary, have made it a magnet for young families.
