A new "equestrian community" is set to rise on a 12-acre property on the site of a former citrus grove in Chatsworth.
The nearly 12-acre property, located at 11000 N. Old Santa Susana Pass Road, is now almost completely vacant save for a more than century-old home. The one-story structure, built by Frigidaire refrigerator distributor Henry Wilson and his wife Georgia in 1918, is among the oldest single-family dwellings in the San Fernando Valley. The Wilsons used the surrounding property as a lemon orchard during the 10 years in which they resided in the home.
Los Angeles-based real estate firm Borstein Enterprises is seeking to subdivide the property for the construction of 18 two-story homes, while each of which would feature a designated 2,200-square-foot horse-keeping area. Plans also call for the rehabilitation of the Wilson House, which was determined as a historic resource by SurveyLA in 2015 during the update of the Porter Ranch-Chatsworth Community Plan.
Irvine-based architecture firm DAHLIN Group is designing the collection of three- and four-bedroom homes, which would come in several different styles.
Construction would occur over approximately one year, according to the project's initial study. A groundbreaking date has not been specified.
