Granada HIlls Homes For Sale

Granada Hills is located in the San Fernando Valley and gets the second part of its name from the geography of the region. Positioned some 1,000 feet above sea level, the neighborhoods in this area are distinctly built for the terrain.
George K. Porter was the co-founder of this part of the San Fernando Valley and farmed the land before the 20th century. In 1916, the San Fernando Valley completely changed. Oil was found on the northern tip of Zelzah Avenue which attracted oil investors. Later, one of those oil investors built a large farm with dairy cattle, barns, and ranch land. This, in turn, attracted tourists from Los Angeles to visit the area that would come to be known as Granada. In 1927 the area was named Granada and 15 years later it was called Granada Hills.
