bustle of city life with its’ mature oak trees and rural setting in the northeastern
canyons of the Verdugos. It is not unusual to see deer browsing on lawns
in the early morning hours or to see red-tailed hawks circling overhead in
the afternoon sun. Yet, it
is still close to city

neighborhood shares its
