Sherman Oaks provides a quiet retreat right in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. This peaceful neighborhood boasts a wide selection of charming restaurants and shopping areas – not to mention some of the most luxurious homes and apartments north of the Hollywood Hills. Its broad boulevards and classic architecture lends a feeling of “Old L.A.” The area’s roots date all the way back to 1927, when the Los Angeles Suburban Homes Company developed Sherman Oaks as a quiet neighborhood near the surrounding Valley hotspots. Today, it’s proved an attractive place for the city’s more affluent residents to settle down. Nestled between Van Nuys and North Hollywood to the north, Studio City and Encino to the east and west, and Bel Air and Beverly Crest to the south, Sherman Oaks truly lies at the center of Valley life.
Its close proximity to the 101 freeway offers quick access to Hollywood and Downtown, Los Angeles. Whether you’re a shopaholic, a foodie, or a film buff – or all the above – Sherman Oaks has got you covered with its vast variety of restaurants, markets, and nightlife. Ventura Blvd. is lined with quirky independent shops, high-fashion boutiques, delightful coffee shops, chic little restaurants, and large office buildings.
