Experience Life on the "Balcony of Southern California"

With elevations reaching 2,700 feet above sea level and soaring vistas across Los Angeles all the way to the Pacific and Catalina Island beyond, the small mountain town of La Crescenta more than earns its nickname “The Balcony of Southern California”. It lies tucked between the Verdugo Range and the San Gabriel Mountains in the La Crescenta Valley—an area known for its ideal climate—and is known as the perfect country-mountain hideaway for entertainment industry professionals.

Fast freeway access to major studios throughout Los Angeles, highly-rated schools, and low crime rates are just part of what make this charming little town an outstanding place to live. Semi-rural in feel, it is both accessible to vibrant city life and quietly secluded from the city buzz and bustle thanks to its amazing geography.
