Top 7 Reasons to Love the Mount Angelus neighborhood of Los Angeles

1.  "Hollywood Hills" Living at Highland Park Prices - Many properties in Mt. Angelus are secluded tracts tucked away with their own beautiful gardens and mature trees.  Often you'll find multiple terraces offering panoramic views of Glendale, Eagle Rock and the mountains beyond.  It's very much like the Hollywood Hills of the Eastside with much lower asking prices.
