This is a house in the Sawtelle neighborhood in West Los Angeles.
I had dinner in this area tonight.
Walking around here, I’m amazed at the old homes that are not fancy, but simple, well kept and humble. This area is home to many older Japanese-Americans, and one sees their influence in the gardens, the topiary and the well tended rose bushes.
There are more and more expensive houses, but they tend to be modernistic and experimental looking. The onslaught of super-slick architecture will eventually change this district from its present old time feel.
