Agoura Hills Real Estate
Homes for Sale in Agoura Hills, CA
Nestled in the hills between Thousand Oaks and the San Fernando Valley, Agoura Hills is one of the only communities in the Conejo Valley that is located within Los Angeles County rather than Ventura County. This quiet semi-rural community is conveniently located with easy access for commuters, only 40 minutes away from Los Angeles and 15 minutes to Thousand Oaks.
Known as the “Gateway to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area,” Agoura Hills is ideally situated for those who want to enjoy the beautiful scenery and climate of Southern California. Residents can also get to the beach in only 25 minutes with a breathtaking drive down Malibu Canyon Road.
Agoura Hills was incorporated as a city in 1982, when local voters chose to take control of the area because Los Angeles County failed to take measures to prevent unbridled residential development and suburban sprawl. Today, this close-knit community features a vibrant music scene and many activities for families with young children and people of all ages. Many of the neighborhoods in Agoura Hills are relatively recent construction with houses ideal for first-time home buyers, though there are abundant fine homes and estates in Old Agoura, with equestrian properties and horse trails. Living in Agoura Hills offers the advantages of being close to the city, while still being able to enjoy wide open spaces and the quiet of nature.
