Ladera Heights View Park Sister Communities. Many will not agree with me stating Ladera Heights and View Park are “Sister Communities.” I state that because both communities in the
1940s were owned by the same company. Both communities had the same developer and builders. View Park and Ladera Heights were raw land after World War II. The lands were owned by Ingold and L.A. Investment Company. Los Aangeles Investment Co. released a street a year in View Park. Homer Valentine built homes on Olympiad, Valley Ridge, Fairway and Kenway.
Ladera Heights residential construction begun after View Park’s home development. Ingold and Los Angeles Investment Company released land in Ladera Heights. Homer was one of the first builders to purchase. Initially, he wanted to build one story corner lot homes. Homer was limited to east side of Springpark Ave. On Garth two adjacent lots were sold for only $7,500.00 each. Homer Valentine home building expanded to Wooster Ave. Homer Valentine had two renowned architects Robert Earl and Charles Wong. Many of Valentine’s built homes on Wooster were designed by Robert Earl.. Homes with distinct styles and designs. Robert Earl designed homes are not limited to Ladera Heights but are throughout Southern California. The first Ladera Valentine home that sold with a pool was designed by architect, Charles Wong. Charles Wong broke old architectural rules starting flat roof trends. Homer Valentine always looking for designer edge over his competition. Example is, Anthony pools in all of Charles Wong designed homes.
