From Santa Monica to Downtown Los Angeles

View as Map

Metro’s popular Expo Line to the beach cuts through a diverse group of neighborhoods on its route from Downtown LA to downtown Santa Monica. Prices vary wildly along the way, with some of the most affordable options in Historic South Central, University Park, Leimert Park, Baldwin Hills/Crenshaw, and West Adams. But it might not stay that way for long, as transit accessibility is added to the wish list of more and more LA house hunters.

For Curbed’s Transportation Week, we’ve scoured listings to see what’s for sale right now along the light rail line. The most expensive listing is a glassy, $3.296-million live/work unit at 10th and Colorado in Santa Monica. The least expensive is a flipped Craftsman off Western and 38th Street asking $565,000.

Santa Monica, CA 90401

This glassy, sun-splashed home is a live/work property filled with windows that give striking views across Santa Monica. Those windows retract “to bring in the ocean breezes.” Built just two years ago, it holds two bedrooms and 2.5 baths, though the listing notes that two “floating mezzanines ... create space for additional bedrooms, office or gym.” The asking price is $3.296 million.
