12 homes for sale along the Expo Line

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.

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.

Look past the dated decor and fixtures here and consider that the home measures a generous 1,905 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. But the desirable Westside location—even if it is right next to the 10 freeway—will cost you. It’s listed for $1.325 million.

This freshly remodeled house has been sitting on the market for 144 days, and the $1.579 million asking price has come down quite a bit since it hit the market in April for $1.799 million. It comes in at four bedrooms and three baths, plus there’s a bonus room that “can be a fifth bedroom and a gorgeous master suite if desired.”

Crisp and bright, this stucco-clad, this three-bedroom house comes with a manicured backyard with drought-tolerant landscaping. The vibe is pretty contemporary, but it holds onto a couple of charming details from its 1938 construction date, namely an arched entryway and coved ceiling. It’s listed for $1.099 million.

This handsome loft isn’t just Expo Line adjacent. Because it’s located next to 7th Street/Metro Center, a major transit hub, it also gets you walking distance to the Blue, Red, and Purple lines.

The asking price is $629,000—and the monthly HOA dues will set you back $850.
