Long revered for its sprawling properties, picturesque surroundings, and notable residents, San Marino lies between Pasadena and San Gabriel, nestled in the San Rafael hills. Named the 48th most expensive area to live in the U.S. by Forbes magazine (2014) and the 3rd most expensive area to live in Los Angeles County (2014), the scenic city is well known for the enchanting Huntington Library and gardens, historic Edwin Hubble House, and vast 30-acre Lacy Park. Characterized for its lavish residences—one of which is the meticulously-crafted and newly-built 2285 S Oak Knoll Avenue—San Marino remains one of the most exclusive enclaves of Los Angeles County.
