About Montecito Heights

Montecito Heights is a hidden gem in Northeast Los Angeles. Many residents call the area the "wilderness in the city" due to its abundant green space and its location near several major highways. Montecito Heights sits in the Monterey Hills, which divides the Los Angeles Basin from the San Gabriel Valley. Due to its location, it is a fairly isolated neighborhood, although the beautiful views you can see from the Monterey Hills more than compensate for the longer commute.
