The Bird Streets

 

Welcome to 'The Bird Streets'

Quintessential Los Angeles Living

 

The Bird Streets neighborhood is found within the 90069 zip code and borders the Trousdale Estates development of Beverly Hills to the west, Sunset Plaza and the rest of the Hollywood Hills to the north and east, and La Collina Estates, the Sunset Strip, and West Hollywood to the south.  Another enclave within the community is an area known as the 'Doheny Estates' which is found at the northernmost part of Doheny Drive right past Kinglet. This area typically offers some of the best views and larger lot properties with more 'flat' lot space making it more desirable to build your dream home with stunning views.

Many architectural masterpieces are located in the community, in styles such as Mid-Century Modern, Ultramodern, Traditional, Mediterranean, and even the occasional Cape Cod. The area also features many older nondescript homes on prime view lots with unobstructed views of the LA basin, which is why the area has been a target, in recent years, for developers who want to build a sexy Hollywood Hills home with the type of views only Los Angeles offers.

The neighborhoods streets are named after birds such as Blue Jay Way, Oriole Drive, Oriole Way, Oriole Lane, Tanager Way, Thrasher Avenue, Skylark Lane, Nightingale Drive, Robin Drive, Swallow Drive, Kinglet Drive, Thrush Way, Warbler Way, Warbler Place, Flicker Way, Flicker Place, Bluebird Avenue, Bobolink Place, Mockingbird Place, and Vireo Drive. Non-bird names such as Doheny Drive, Sierra Mar Drive, Sierra Mar Place, Marcheeta Place, and Hopen Place can also be found in the area.
