Move To Sunland Tujunga
Fiercely Independant Mountain Community
Move to Sunland and Tujunga because they are communities filled with free spirits, artists and non-conformists. First-time buyers move to Sunland Tujunga for the relatively affordable homes and easy access to the entertainment studios.
Sunland Tujunga is part of the Unincorporated area of Los Angeles County and is located just west of the La Crescenta border. According to Wikipedia, Mt Gleason Ave separates Sunland from Tujunga. We include this area as a Glendale Ca neighborhood because so many of our natives buy thier first home in this affordable area.
People move to Sunland Tujunga when they work in Burbank or the Valley because the 5 freeway is accessed from Sunland Blvd. and the 210/118 freeway is a great alternate route to the Valley during peak traffic times.
Sunland Tujunga Insider Intel
Sunland Tujunga residents are passionate about everything. Horses, politics, bad drivers, high speed rail and spectacular sunsets are regularly discussed on local Facebook groups. You will not want to move to Sunland Tujunga if you are afraid of strong opinions.
This is not a large area and there are few named Sunland “neighborhoods”. Crystal View, Sevenhills, Renaissance are known for their relatively uniform lots and homes. Shadow Hills is known as the equestrian area and is also the location of several large horse properties.
Sunland is deceptively close to the entertainment and studios! Take Sunland Blvd straight down to the 5 Freeway. This combined with the relatively affordable housing is part of the reason we think Sunland could be the next “hot hood” in the area!

The reason most people move to Sunland and Tujunga is because of the rural feel and the relatively affordable homes. Tujunga has smaller lots and homes while Sunland enjoys larger lots, more space between homes and larger homes. If you continue west, down Foothill Blvd, you’ll cross under the 210 Freeway and enter Shadow Hills. This affluent equestrian community enjoys large lots, horse facilities and an eclectic mix of ranch inspired architectural styles.
What We Love About Sunland Tujunga
Independent thinkers and people who value space and privacy love living in a Sunland home. There is a strong arts culture and equestrian culture.
The McGroarty Arts Center is an absolute gem. The native stone building is snuggled into the Tujunga hillside and is shaded by mature Oak and Sycamore trees. Class offerings include ceramics, drawing, music and performance art.
Bolton Hall is another local attraction.
Stuff We Don’t Love
There is no way to avoid this issue – there is a crime element in Sunland. Drugs and homelessness are an on going issue, especially closer to Foothill Blvd. or the Tujunga Wash.
