Revelation neighborhood: Sunland and Tujunga. It's true.
And the beaten path is Sunland Boulevard, which turns into Foothill. This long stretch of road is anything but impressive, and kind of actually makes you wonder about the neighborhoods on either side. However, take for example, 7818 Beckett, pictured above. This is in a beautiful residential neighborhood close to Apperson Elementary. The other homes on the street are equally nice. This is a 1600+sf, 3+2 with den and is in move-in condition. And the price is an unbelievable -- to me anyway -- $409,000. There's another home on the street that is similarly sized for $385,000. As for Tujunga, I saw a home there yesterday in a neighborhood that reminded us of Carmel without the ocean. It is 2500+ sf for $499,000 (it's a short sale and will likely go out for more). Oak trees, mountains, greenery...
And yes, the neighborhoods are a little bit remote. But they are close to Pasadena and Glendale and all those communities have to offer. And it's not a bad commute to downtown L.A. or Burbank. So if you're looking for this price range, here's a new area that's definitely worth considering.
