Why Mount Washington?
My wife and I moved to the hills of Mount Washington and Glassell Park in 2004 and fell immediately in love with it. Contrary to the the other hilside areas in North-East LA, such as Eagle Rock or Echo Park, this one is not so densely populated but has rather a lot of green between homes. Narrow winding streets offer vistas into deep, vegetated canyons, rolling hills or the highrises of the city in the distance. It feels like a small rural mediterranean enclave- far from the city and yet, only minutes away from it.
Yes, that is exactly the place where we wanted to build our house!
