Homes in Montecito Heights are always in demand. The time for selling - or buying - a home in Montecito Heights has never been more ideal.
Known as the “Wilderness in the City” to the locals, over a third of Montecito Heights is park land, split between the massive Ernest E. Debs Park, Rose Hill Park and Hermon Park. Bicyclists, pet owners, hikers, birdwatchers and outdoorsy types have a lot of choices between the parks and several natural open hilltops. The Arroyo Seco River is the neighborhood’s northwestern border, offering yet another reprieve in the urban landscape. Hillside homes enjoy expansive views of the Downtown Los Angeles skyline as well as falcons, eagles, owls and occasional migratory birds flying high in the open air.
The neighborhood is one of Los Angeles’s oldest, and Victorian, Craftsman and Mission Revival-style homes are common, attracting a growing community of creative types. The Heritage Square Museum represents the architectural wealth of Montecito Heights with astounding historic Victorian mansions from LA’s early years and regular schedules of tours, events and lectures. The Arroyo Seco Parkway, the nation’s oldest freeway, features art deco bridges and tunnels, lush tall native trees and San Gabriel Mountain views.
While Montecito Heights feels miles away from teh bustle of the city, the Metro Gold Line has stops nearby. Also, close by are the hip boutique stores, old theaters and coffee shops that line Figueroa Boulevard in Highland Park. Bustling Downtown Los Angeles and culturally rich Pasadena are both less than ten minutes away. Due to Montecito Heights’ central location and easy access to freeways and trains, the entire city is within a reasonable drive of its gorgeous hillside homes.
