This neighborhood of roughly 100 homes was built by renowned developer, Joseph Eichler between 1963 and 1964 and is located at the northern edge of the San Fernando Valley. It is the only Eichler tract in Los Angeles County.
The tract consists of 4 main streets: Darla Avenue, Lisette Street, Nanette Street, and Jimeno Avenue, off Balboa Blvd. in Granada Hills. The site planners and principle architects were A Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons.
Balboa Highlands is ripe with restoration energy as new owners are buying up properties and renovating them to their original Modern glamour. And original owners are pleased to see that their intuition to buy and stay in an Eichler is once again being appreciated by a whole new generation of architectural aficionados.
