From Troubled Parcel Emerges New Open Space

Song, of La Mirada, bought the property in 2010 for $685,000 with the intent of building a family home. As it sat then, 1199 Lewellyn Drive was an abandoned lot reached from a ruggedly twisting long driveway off of Laguna Canyon. That is exactly how the once fire-ravaged 12-acre parcel still sits, steeply tucked below Skyline Drive.
