"The secret valley"

Buena Vista Terrace is a wonderful secret nestled in the nook that runs along the peak of the hill between Eagle Rock, Higland Park and Pasadena. It is a narrow winding hilly street that lifts it's inhabitants out of LA life and allows them to float above a glorious valley with an abundance of open land and picturesque views.
Neighbors are neighborly (with the exception of a few grumpy Gusses) and everyone loves this wonderful hidden valley that has city views of Glendale on one side and Los Angeles on the other.
Barking dogs are common as everyone in the valley seems to have one.
The occasional ice cream truck's music echos through the valley during the summer but beyond that it is as peaceful as can be and at just over 5 miles from downtown LA!
The steep hills and winding roads are an adventure unto themselves. There is even a not-so-secret road connecting Eagle Rock to Highland Park that probably isn't safe but is driven daily by dozens of in-the-know drivers.
Even better than driving through this neighborhood is taking a walk around and catching the spectacular views and discovering the hidden homes among the hills.
