A gem of the San Fernando Valley, Northridge blends upscale urban living with access to the natural splendor of the surrounding countryside, including both Lake Balboa and the nearby Chatsworth Reservoir. The quaint city is close enough to the city while still serving as the perfect retreat with its warm residential comforts. Between luxury single-family homes and high-end condos, Northridge has it all.

Alongside some of the best public and private schools in the area, Northridge is also home to the largest shopping mall in the area. Conveniently located to Bob Hope Airport, located just on the other side of North Hollywood, Northridge is secluded enough from major traffic that it feels more like a suburb and less like a big city.

Once known as North Los Angeles, the city's name was officially changed to "Northridge" in 1938 to avoid confusion with North Hollywood.
