Sitting atop the steep hills that separate Los Angeles from the San Gabriel Valley, Montecito Heights is a quiet residential neighborhood with spectacular views. This is a secluded community with people who don't mind the fact that you can't walk to nearby shops or restaurants. Historically it has attracted artists and intellectuals.
Housing-wise, there are a number of stunning Craftsman-style homes, but you'll also find cottages, bungalows, Tudor-style, and Spanish-style homes as well.
The northeast part of the neighborhood features the 300 acre (121 hectare) Ernest E. Debs Regional Park. The park has miles of trails with great views of the downtown skyline
