San Marino

The Californian city of San Marino is characterized by lavish properties surrounded by exquisite gardens. The area is uniquely residential, occupying less than 4 squre miles. The city’s strict views on historic preservation restrict larger developments. San Marino may be recognizable to many Americans for the prevalence of movies and television shows filmed in the city. Location scouts turn to San Marino when they wish to make a film in southern California set elsewhere. Certain neighborhoods resemble the Atlantic seaboard because of the atypical housing stock in the city, including Georgian and faux antebellum mansions. Yet the design of many homes is inspired by California Spanish Architecture. Television shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and movies such as Father of the Bride and Benson have been filmed in San Marino and Pasadena. The 2013 California Academic Performance Index report named San Marino Unified School District as the top performing unified school district in California for the 11th consecutive year, with a score of 953 points out of 1,000 possible. Each of its public primary schools has also been honored as a California Distinguished School and a National Blue Ribbon School. This community consists only of single family residences and there are no apartment buildings, condominiums or townhouses in the city.
