La Crescenta

Nestled between the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys on the edge of the Angeles National Forest is La Crescenta.

Welcome to La Crescenta

 
Nestled between the San Fernando and San Gabriel valleys on the edge of the Angeles National Forest is La Crescenta, an ethnically diverse small city with a Mayberry vibe. Excellent public schools, serene parks, hiking trails, and a top-notch farmers market have put the family-friendly spot—located less than 15 miles from Downtown LA—on the real estate map. Ranch homes on large lots surrounded by mature trees are the predominant style, along with a sprinkling of Mid-century homes (artists Lari Pittman and Roy Dowell sold Neutra’s 1952 Serulnic Residence and an avant-garde second home on the property by Michael Maltzan to the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea in 2018). Don’t miss the region’s architectural centerpiece, St. Luke’s of the Mountains Episcopal Church, which was built from natural stone by the famous artist Seymour Thomas in 1924.
