Back in 2013, I wrote two very popular articles, the first being Celeb Homes: Calabasas, Lake Sherwood…and the other, Buying a Home: Spotlight on Lake Sherwood . Over a year later, I thought it would be great to revisit the topic in some of my other neighborhoods. While it’s not the most important reason, if a reason at all, it’s a fun topic and it does speak to the value of the real estate in the area. So in my 2014 follow up, I will spotlight Hidden Hills and even give an alternative.
Selena Finds Shelter in Hidden Hills
Selena Gomez just sold her Tarzana home to move into a new palace which boasts 5 Beds/6 Baths on 7,229 sq ft. on a total lot size of 3.15 acres. It was built in 2004 and sits in a gated community literally next door to Hidden Hills.
Hidden Hills is a community that sits hidden between Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. The area is quite affluent and bustles with celebrities, families and film industry folks. As it says on the city’s website:
The City of Hidden Hills is nestled between the western foothills of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County and the Ventura County line, California. It boasts an authentic bucolic atmosphere as witnessed by the absence of sidewalks and street lights, the white three-rail fences, and bridle trails…an example of small town Southern California living at its finest.

A ‘Bubbly’ Move
Her new 8,400-square-foot place is a Santa Barbara-inspired Mediterranean on more than an acre. Accessed through a gated courtyard entry, the mostly single-story home features a great room, a center-island kitchen, a game room with a wet bar, a home theater, six en suite bedrooms and two additional bathrooms.
A Gated Alternative to the ‘Hills’
If you want the Hidden Hills experience – the gated community option, country club environment but in some cases with lower (still luxury) listing prices, visit Lake Sherwood. Lake Sherwood offers the same affluent feel, many celeb neighbors, great night life, restaurants and shopping, and as a bonus only 20 minutes from Hidden Hills and 30 minutes to Los Angeles. If you work in Los Angeles, this is a perfect choice. Famous present and/or former residents include Britney Spears Wayne Gretsky and the aforementioned Colbie Caillat. A recent Variety article describing the KimYe mansion, shines a spotlight on just how many celebs actually live here. The reporter describes Hidden Hills as…
… a much touted, well-groomed and exceedingly affluent enclave long favored by the rich and/or famous. Should they choose, Mister and Missus Kardashian can invite neighbors who Jennifer Lopez, Drake, Leann Rimes and Eddie Cibrian, Nicolette Sheridan, and Jessica Simpson to their housewarming party.
