Considered the “Balcony of Southern California,” the neighborhood of La Crescenta is a sleepy mountain area in the 91214 zip code of California. When traveling west on the 210 freeway you’ll enter La Crescenta at La Crescenta Avenue and exit it at Lowell Avenue. It is located at the bottom of the beautiful Angeles National Forest and has a very relaxed atmosphere despite being a thriving suburb of nearby Glendale. Speaking of Glendale, the western half of 91214 consists of a Glendale neighborhood known as Crescenta Highlands. Pennsylvania serves as the dividing line between the Glendale neighborhood and the County's unincorporated part of La Crescenta.
Non-residents typically think of La Crescenta as being remote, but the community is actually close to many amenities and attractions. That said, it does have a seemingly rural atmosphere with few sidewalks and street lights. Residents enjoy proximity to the Deukmejian Wilderness Area and Angeles National Forest, which both offer scenic hiking trails and other recreational opportunities. The community is also home to the region’s best dog park and excellent public schools governed by the Glendale Unified School District. Additional benefits include easy access to the 188 freeway which provides an easy commute and access to the Westside and the Valley. So, anyone seeking small-town charm in the Los Angeles area should consider the homes for sale in La Crescenta.
