The Stonehurst HPOZ is comprised of 92 homes in the Northeast San Fernando Valley, in the community of Sun Valley. Many of the structures were built between 1923 and 1925 by Dan Montelongo, a local artisan and stonemason, using stone selected from the nearby washes and the foothills of the Tujunga Valley. The neighborhood boasts the highest concentration in Los Angeles of homes utilizing native river rock as a primary building material. Many of these homes were designed in a "Stonemason Vernacular" style that is a derivative of Craftsman architecture. Stonehurst homes are frequently small bungalows on large lots, often on horse-keeping or animal-keeping properties, giving this neighborhood a unique, rustic character among Los Angeles' historic districts.
