Popular La Crescenta Neighborhoods

La Crescenta, California is located in an unincorporated portion of Los Angeles County. In 1972, the Foothill Freeway opened and had a tremendous impact on the commute times of its residents. The community is appreciated for combining the benefits of blue ribbon schools and metropolitan convenience. La Crescenta neighborhoods located in the 91214 can be confusing because some areas are considered Glendale, and La Crescenta is often co-mingled with neighboring Montrose. Harb & Co. will bring you clarity by providing you with insight into this popular community that we specialize in.

Briggs Terrace

In 1871, Colonel Theodore Pickens, one of the first settlers in the Crescenta Valley, relocated to Briggs Terrace. While some may feel the neighborhood is isolated, its residents enjoy the quiet and serene setting. Deer, rabbit, and other wildlife abound.

Crescenta Highlands

(also known as the Glendale annex)
In the 1950s, in order to secure their water supply, the residents of Crescenta Highlands in La Crescenta voted to annex to the city of Glendale. Oddly bisecting La Crescenta, this neighborhood is roughly between Pennsylvania Avenue and Lowell Avenue. It’s primarily residential and a highly sought after neighborhood. Nearby Foothill Boulevard offers a bustling commercial district for shopping and dining.

Glenwood Oaks

In 1954, the Anderson Brothers developed Glenwood Oaks, a 30-acre, 90-home community in the Glendale annex area of La Crescenta. Although the tract remains intact, most of the homes have been extensively updated.

Markridge Estates

Markridge Estates was conceived nearly 30 years ago, when La Crescenta had a need for more affluent housing. The planned community is an exclusive hillside neighborhood of just over 40 residences with a community tennis court. These homes boast modern spacious floor plans, and mountain and or city lights views.

Mountain Oaks

Mountain Oaks was originally purchased in the 1920s by the Kadletz family. They constructed a swimming pool, outdoor bandstand, and dance floor. It was rumored to be a popular watering hole during Prohibition. A grand hunting lodge included a large dance hall and a second-story gentleman’s club. After Prohibition ended, the resort lost much of its appeal. Lot sizes were small (many under 1,000 feet); a variety were sold and just over a dozen homes eventually built. Although most of the homes in the neighborhood have been remodeled, no new homes or structures have been built since 1948. The neighbors defined a fire road with a wide enough turnaround for the fire department’s trucks but many of the roads are narrow and not easily accessible to emergency vehicles. As the community does not conform to current zoning and planning regulations, the Mountain Oaks neighborhood is considered an illegal subdivision. But that doesn’t deter the people who reside in this idyllic setting; the residents enjoy the serenity. Deer, rabbit, and other wildlife abound.

Pinecrest

The Pinecrest community is appreciated for its mid-century homes built by local builder Webster Wiley. These homes are located high in the foothills of La Crescenta and feature three predominant architectural styles: Tri-level, Ranch, and Wiley’s popular Atrium-style home. Residents enjoy mountain and or city lights views.
