Marshall Canyon Estates

Back to Land Planning page


Marshall Canyon Estates was one of the last remaining large parcels of undeveloped land in the City of La Verne. The 293-acre site consists of approximately 100 acres of gently sloping land suitable for development, with the remainder taken up in steeply sloped lands associated with the Angeles National Forest.

Formerly an orange orchard, other features of the property included an historic grove house and an ephemeral creek sporting a healthy community of live oaks. The property is also adjacent to Marshall Canyon Golf Course (public) affording some opportunity for both direct and indirect course exposure.

The development plan for the property focused on large lot, high end residential living. The program called for the construction of 172 production homes on pads averaging over 10,000 useable square feet. Custom home opportunities were also provided in an area made useable by the need for a third access point. These 10 custom homesites are oak studded, have varying topography and the best exposure to the golf course. Additional features of this gated community involved the development of a 5-acre community park (public) and a linear trail system running the length of the creek through the native oak grove. The project is built out.
