A real estate developer is proposing a 118-home equestrian community in the northwest San Fernando Valley to be called Hidden Creeks Estates and Preserve.
Forestar Real Estate Group Inc., based in Austin, Texas, unveiled plans for the project Tuesday before the Los Angeles City Planning Commission, which may decide to approve the project’s environmental impact report and approve horse-keeping permits for home buyers.
Home lots in the gated neighborhood will average 18,500 square feet. The 25 horse-keeping lots will range from 20,000 square feet up to more than an acre.
The project is located on 285 hillside acres at 12900 Browns Canyon Road, within the Porter Ranch community north of the 118 Freeway and west of Aliso Canyon.
The development incorporates 114 acres of open space to be called Hidden Creeks Preserve, as well as a youth sports field and the Mountain Meadows Equestrian Center, according to the site plan drawn up by L. Newman Design Group Inc. of Westlake Village.
Forestar Real Estate Group Inc. currently is developing 85 projects in eight states, according to its website. It is a division of Forestar, a publicly traded corporation that operates in the oil and gas industry as well as real estate.
