Eastside Property: Suburban living in the city comes with a high price

Do you want to live amid the urban amenities that the Eastside has to offer but enjoy the space, comforts and conveniences of a new suburban-style house?   If you don’t want to squeeze into a Silver Lake condo or live a few inches from your neighbor in an Eagle Rock small-lot home development, it can be tough finding that suburban spread with a garage that will make your cousin in Chino Hills jealous.  But here are few options currently on the market. Word of caution: They are not cheap

  1. The lots are still tiny with no room to stretch out.
    We recently sold a similar size house in Pasadena with a much larger lot.

  2. $950,000??
    No view, no yard . No thanks.
    You can probably find a way better place for that much .
    If it had a pool than MAYBE it would be worth the price.

  3. Did you mean to say, “It would be hard to find a house this big even in Valencia FOR THIS PRICE?” then you would be correct. But the size alone is common in most areas of Santa Clarita, not just Valencia. There are lots of houses over 3,500 sq ft.
