The most important “L”-word for homebuyers—“location”—is one of the great strengths of La Habra, a quiet, bedroom community at the farthest northern edge of Orange County.
It’s an upscale city of about 60,000 residents located within easy reach of a variety of Southland destinations, including SoCal beaches, the mountains and entertainment spots. The 57 Freeway is conveniently located nearby, and California State Route 39 passes through the city--for many years, the 39 (known today as Beach Boulevard) was a popular route taking families to sun and fun on the coast.
The city covers just 7.3 square miles (and still manages to have 20 parks within the city limits!) , nestled between Whittier to the west and Brea to the east. To the north, in the Puente Hills, sits its sibling city, La Habra Heights, birthplace of the world-famous Hass avocado.
Incorporated in 1925, La Habra has played a part—like nearby Whittier and Yorba Linda—in the life of Richard Nixon. La Habra Heights’ claim to fame might come from the Hass avocado, but La Habra’s comes from the fact that the future 37th president of the United States set up his first law office there.
Today, the median household income of La Habra families is estimated at $60,000, while median house values in the city average $430,000. Students are served, depending on where they live, by the La Habra City School District, Fullerton Joint High School District and Lowell Joint School District.
The city’s also the location of many successful neighborhood celebrations, including the popular Corn Festival, which is held annually in August, and the Children’s Museum, which offers an interactive, educational experience to some 90,000 visitors every year.
