* Architect William Krisel designed the neighborhood for developer Roy Fey in 1962. Krisel (born 1924), who grew up in Los Angeles and earned his architecture degree at USC, was principal of Palmer & Krisel, and became a respected architect of midcentury modern houses in Southern California.
* Canyon View Estates was built in stages. As Alexander Construction Co. completed each group of homes, a new homeowners association was created. Today, six HOAs strive to preserve the architectural style and the neighborhood’s distinctive feel.
* Each group of homes clusters around a common pool, spa, and greenway. Some consistent elements of the design include carports, native stone on the front exterior, floor-to-ceiling windows, geometric rooflines, clerestory windows, and patterned white cinder block. Yet close examination reveals subtle differences that make each home one-of-a-kind.
