Westlake Village Real Estate

In 1963, the land which now hosts the city of Westlake Village was purchased by a partnership including Prudential Insurance and the American-Hawaiian Steamship Company. As was the case with neighboring Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village was from the beginning a planned community, and the partnership that purchased the land had the intention of dividing it up into parcels and developing it into a semi-rural community in proximity to Los Angeles. When you live in Westlake Village, you have easy access to all that is desirable about living in the L.A. metro area – from downtown to Hollywood, to the beaches and the coastal communities – while still being able to enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with being removed from the urban sprawl. As a planned community, furthermore, Westlake Village is easy to navigate and comfortable to live in. Whether you are looking for a new home for your young family or are planning to retire and want a quiet place to enjoy your golden years, Westlake Village may be perfect for you.

Westlake Village, Where the Stars and Ordinary People Live Together

Westlake Village has a reputation nationwide for being among the most affluent communities in the U.S. and it is home to a long list of A-list celebrities. At the same time, it is not by any means an exclusive enclave accessible only to the rich and famous. A large percentage of residents work nearby in Thousand Oaks or the Conejo Valley, or commute into the Valley or elsewhere in Los Angeles for their 9-to-5 jobs. The 101 Freeway is the major thoroughfare through Westlake Village, though Westlake Boulevard makes its way south to the coast near Malibu, after turning into Decker Road.

Schools in Westlake Village

Straddling the Ventura-Los Angeles County line, Westlake Village is a city divided. The City of Westlake Village proper is located on the Los Angeles side of the county line, while the Ventura County section is actually a part of Thousand Oaks. Locals, however, generally make no distinction and instead recognize the community as a whole. One situation in which the county line does become an issue is when parents are looking for a school for their children. Schools on the Ventura County side are part of the Conejo Valley Unified School District, while those on the L.A. side are in the Las Virgenes Unified School District. Some of the schools from which you can choose in Westlake Village include:

Conejo Valley School District



Las Virgines School District

Westlake Village: A Place to Enjoy the SoCal Environment

Westlake Village promotes itself as a green city, and as such is committed to “stewardship and enhancement of our environmental assets.” Examples of what this means to homeowners in Westlake Village include the fact that there is a city rebate program for building projects involving solar panels, the city operates a water conservation program, and gardeners are able to claim a free home composting container. Westlake Village also offers ample opportunity to get outside and enjoy the world-class Southern California climate, with five city parks within the city limits in addition to parks in Thousand Oaks and neighboring Agoura Hills. Hikers and mountain bikers will also enjoy living right up against the Santa Monica Mountains, with seemingly endless options for trails and open space.
