Escape to the Fresh Mountain Air of Small Town Montrose CA Homes For Sale

In the southwestern portion of the Crescenta-Cañada Valley, about 15 miles north of downtown Los Angeles and cradled high in the foothills between the Verdugo Mountains and Angeles National Forest, lies the charming little town of Montrose, CA. Although it is integrally connected to communities of La Crescenta and Verdugo City, Montrose has a distinct character all its own; residents might describe their tiny town as, "a little bit of Mayberry" and "Main Street USA" in all rolled into one. Yet despite its quiet, secluded charm, Montrose is immediately freeway-close to everything Southern California has to offer. Contact Brad Korb today to find Montrose CA homes for sale

Why Do Residents Choose Montrose?

Things to do in Montrose

Things to Do

Picturesque and unique, Montrose has maintained many original structures from its initial building boom in the 1920’s and 30’s. Its first commercial building, constructed in 1914, still stands at the southwestern corner of Honolulu Avenue and Verdugo Road in the thick of Montrose's vibrant business community. The region's sweet, dry air, cozy isolation, and scenic mountain backdrops have been appealing from the start; it was a favorite hideaway for early movie stars Carole Lombard and Clark Gable, and American classic novelist John Steinbeck even called Montrose home for a spell.

Outdoor exploration in Montrose

Outdoor Exploration

Higher mountain elevation means clean mountain air, as well as endless possibilities for outdoor exploration through the Verdugo Mountains and the Angeles National Forest. Many local and community parks throughout the surrounding area provide plenty of amenities and natural beauty, and a true wilderness escape to the mountains is just a short trip away. From beautiful views along the Crescenta View Trail to the breathtaking vistas of the Rim of the Valley Trail up Mount Lukens, the fun of the Crescenta Valley Dog Park to the unique events of the nearby Descanso Gardens, the outdoor possibilities are endless.
