Houses For Sale in Athens/Westmont, CA - 90047 Approximately 55,000 residents call this unincorporated county area of Los Angeles home.  Located between Gardena and Inglewood, this well established, family friendly community continues to benefit from the development in surrounding cities.

This area of Los Angeles lies within the unincorporated area of Los Angeles County and sits ideally between Gardena and Inglewood.  The approximately 55,000 residents that call this diverse community home have experienced booming development in the surrounding areas that have had an impact on property values.   Athens, a small,  and very well maintained community of approximately 10,000 residents is quietly tucked away just north of Gardena, in fact it's often thought of as a part of  "Northern Gardena" because it sits at the southern tip of this zip code, just outside of the city of Gardena.  Centrally located, Athens is a quiet, family friendly neighborhood that still provides affordable housing options compared to some of its southern and northern neighbors.  It also provides easy access to many amenities; such as shopping, restaurants, amazing South Bay beaches and easy access to surrounding freeways. Athens is also the home of the Chester Washington Golf Course (formerly the Western Avenue Golf Course).  The golf course officially opened in 1928 and was renamed in 1982  after the influential publisher of the L.A. Sentinel and staunch community supporter, Chester L. Washington. The northern part of this zip code, known as the Westmont area, has recenlty seen an increase in home prices because of it's proximity to all of the development currently taking place in the city of Inglewood, but without experiencing the disadvantages that may possibly come with living in a construction zone.  Take a ride through these two communities and you will notice great pride of ownership, their wonderful diversity, close proximity to schools and the great neighborhood feel.  If you'd like more information on what's happening in this growing community or how current development is impacting home prices please feel free to contact me.
