A new "equestrian community" is set to rise on a 12-acre property on the site of a former citrus grove in Chatsworth.

The nearly 12-acre property, located at 11000 N. Old Santa Susana Pass Road, is now almost completely vacant save for a more than century-old home.  The one-story structure, built by Frigidaire refrigerator distributor Henry Wilson and his wife Georgia in 1918, is among the oldest single-family dwellings in the San Fernando Valley.  The Wilsons used the surrounding property as a lemon orchard during the 10 years in which they resided in the home.

Los Angeles-based real estate firm Borstein Enterprises is seeking to subdivide the property for the construction of 18 two-story homes, while each of which would feature a designated 2,200-square-foot horse-keeping area.  Plans also call for the rehabilitation of the Wilson House, which was determined as a historic resource by SurveyLA in 2015 during the update of the Porter Ranch-Chatsworth Community Plan.

Irvine-based architecture firm DAHLIN Group is designing the collection of three- and four-bedroom homes, which would come in several different styles.

Construction would occur over approximately one year, according to the project's initial study.  A groundbreaking date has not been specified.
