La Crescenta-Montrose is an upscale residential neighborhood situated between two mountains: the Verdugos and Angeles Crest. Given this geography, great views are the norm. It has low crime and good schools and you'll feel far from the LA scene even though it's within commuting distance of Burbank and downtown Los Angeles. It's a popular neighborhood for families.
Occasionally coyotes and other wildlife wander in from the adjacent forest.
