Baldwin Hills Estates (BHE) is often cited as Los Angeles' hidden secret. The community's central location provides beautiful vista views of the surrounding communities, from the Santa Monica Mountains to the Downtown District. Its central location also positions it 10 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport, 15 minutes from Downtown, and minutes away from some of Los Angeles' most popular venues and sites.
Located atop a natural hilltop in the historic Baldwin Hills, the residential community is adjacent to the Crenshaw District and is bounded by La Brea Avenue to the west and Stocker Avenue to the southeast. Don Ricardo, Don Diablo and Don Felipe Drives border the BHE to the north. The larger geographic context of BHE includes formerly developed oil fields to the west side of Baldwin Hills and residential neighborhoods at the base of the incline. Well-known neighboring sites include the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area; the communities of View Park, Leimert Park and Ladera Heights; and the historical Olympic Village built in 1932 to accommodate the Olympic games.
