Mountain’s Edge is devoted to restoring native landscape where it was previously eroded by human presence, and the entire community now follows development guidelines to save water and maintain natural beauty in the area.

The parks, trails, streetscapes and homes all form a genuine connection between family, community, and natural surroundings with a history that goes back centuries.

Residents will enjoy the cozy homes starting at 2200 square feet, while bigger groups or those who desire more space have larger floor plan options, up to 4500 square feet. The homes in Granada Hills were constructed by Rhodes Homes, a popular home building company in the Valley.
