Eaton Crest Condos in Monterey Hills


A Market Update - June 2017



This is a real estate market activity report for the Eaton Crest condominium complex in the hilltop community of Monterey Hills.  In this report I will share activity so far in 2017 as well as closed sales for the previous six years.  Statistical Eaton Crest Affordable Los Angeles Condos in Monterey Hillsinformation in this report has been gathered from our local multiple listing service(mls) and may not include all transactions in the complex.  


Eaton Crest is the largest condominium complex within the Monterey Hills community. Monterey Hills is a community of different condo and townhome complexes and one neighborhood of 16 single family homes in the city of Los Angeles (zip code 90042).  It is located just east of the Arroyo Seco Parkway adjacent to the city of South Pasadena and convenient to Downtown Los Angeles and the USC Health Science Campus.  


While highly accessible via multiple freeways and two nearby Gold Line light rail stations, Monterey Hills remains very much under-the-radar.  This makes it, in my opinion, one of Los Angeles’ best kept and affordable real estate secrets.  It really is a great place for first time homebuyers, investors with a long term strategy and for those people looking for a convenient location at a very reasonable price.


Los Angeles Affordable Condos Eaton Crest Monterey HillsWith 198 single level condos, the Eaton Crest was built in 1981.  There are two separate buildings in the complex:  4499 Via Marisol and 4589 Via Marisol. There are a total of four entrances with lobbies and elevator access to each floor.   


The well-maintained grounds feature a pool, spa, mature landscaping, a recreation/meeting room and common area laundry facilities throughout the complex(although most units have in-unit laundry connections).    Parking is subterranean and there is guest parking on site.   


The floor plans range in size from a studio unit(only one such in the complex and in all of Monterey Hills) to two bedrooms/den/two baths(often called three bedrooms).   First floor units typically have large patio areas often nearly as large as the units themselves.   Some of the top floor units in the 4499 Via Marisol building have taller ceilings, clerestory windows and skylights.
