Cities Where Residents Never Want to Leave

There are cities where residents never want to leave. However, they often outgrow the existing housing stock, and new neighborhoods and communities need to be carved out.

Less than twenty years ago, La Crescenta needed more affluent housing. There were just not enough luxury homes to meet demand. Markridge Estates was conceived.   Markridge Estates is an exclusive hillside community of just over forty homes and a community tennis court. The homes boast center island kitchens, spa-like master retreats, soaring ceilings, views, and ideal floorplans. I have a new “coming soon” listing that will be on the market in the next couple of weeks. Call me if you or anyone you know is looking for a luxury home in La Crescenta.

Fifteen years ago, Burbank, too, needed more high-end housing. There were just not enough prestigious homes in Burbank to meet demand, and Hallston and Highridge were developed.  Consisting of just over one hundred luxury homes and sited in a gated community, these homes offer larger square footage and luxury appointments.

In the 1970s, Oakmont Estates was developed to meet the need of Glendale’s growing affluent population. If you like extensive views and marble, these are the ticket. More than 30 years ago, Glendale’s Glen Knolls neighborhood was established. Twenty-five years ago, I was newly married and looking at homes in the new community of San Rafael Hills. We decided on a (1980’s) home in Glendale’s Fair Oaks Community.

La Canada home buyers, too, were looking for bigger and more – yes, many of our older ranch homes have been torn down and new larger homes built. In the 1960s, a tract of La Canada homes was constructed just west of the La Canada Country Club. The larger and more prestigious La Canada County Club neighborhood was developed in the 80s. Subsequently, in the late 80s, an entire block of Homewood Lane homes (Descanso Gardens adjacent) was developed.
