Sherman Oaks

Welcome to Sherman Oaks

Prime Valley location with sprawling estates set amongst the hills
Sherman Oaks has everything someone seeks in an upscale community — cultural outings, a bustling downtown, access to the city, nearby natural beauty, and luxury homes. This quiet Los Angeles suburb allows for city convenience with small-town peacefulness. Families love the quiet streets, high-end malls, and bevy of boutiques, restaurants, and workout studios. 
Named for General Moses Hazeltine Sherman, who originally owned and developed the land, Sherman Oaks has a rich history. The neighborhood still features some of its signature old-Hollywood architecture from the 1930s and includes iconic roads like Mulholland Drive and Ventura Boulevard. 
Though its high cost of living makes Sherman Oaks quite costly, everyone from the technology industry to the entertainment industry flocks to the neighborhood for a tight-knit community and an active lifestyle. Real Estate in this area is easily one of the best investments in Los Angeles.

What to Love

  • Sprawling estates and hillside villas that overlook the Santa Monica Mountains
  • Convenient access to freeways, shopping, high-end dining, and workout classes
  • Great private school options for families 

Local Lifestyle

Sherman Oaks residents are active, affluent, and come for the small community vibe offered by the neighborhood. Parents are involved in the local schools and know each other well. 
The residential areas of Sherman Oaks boast a timeless feel of old Los Angeles. Opulent, eye-catching villas mixed with 1930’s “birdhouse” ranch-style homes create diversity in style and lively energy throughout town.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

The Sherman Oaks neighborhood features its own downtown strip on Ventura Boulevard, an extremely walkable and family-friendly street smattered with great restaurants, boutiques, retail stores, and workout studios. Popular chain restaurants mixed with home-grown local spots speak to a mix of tastes and preferences. 
For gastropub fare, try The Sherman or The Local Peasant; both are buzzy, lively spots for good food and custom cocktails. For high-end French fare, Petit Trois is the sister location of the famed Hollywood bistro. Tipsy Cow, Anejo Cantina, Osteria La Buca, and The Six are other beloved spots along Ventura Blvd. 
For a wide array of retail stores, the Westfield Sherman Oaks Fashion Square which has Apple, Lululemon, Nordstrom, and many others, is a local favorite. Of course, Sherman Oaks is just over the hill from Beverly Hills, which offers unparalleled world-class dining options and shopping adventures at designer stores. When in Beverly Hills, eating at the iconic restaurants like Spago, Mastros or The Palm will have you rubbing elbows with the top 1% of the city.
