Balance and thoughtfulness, 18001 Karen is an impressive ensemble of Mediterranean and contemporary sensibilities. In one of Encino’s most exclusive enclaves, an approximately half-acre lot is home to 5 beds, 6 baths and 180 degrees of serene Valley views. Behind brand-new custom gates and a polished, circular driveway is the most competitive opportunity in the neighborhood. Sleek and clean whitewashed interiors eloquently complement the striking façade. Surrounded by celebrities and entertainers, the open floorplan, massive backyard space, pool, spa, and lower-level sports court are perfect for hosting any event on a grand scale. Between upgraded kitchen and baths, spacious primary en suite with its own private balcony, and stately lower-level home office that open directly to your backyard oasis, this is one that should not be missed.

If you are seeking a private, high-end urban haven, Encino is the place for you. The celebrity enclave is centrally located, just north of Bel-Air and Brentwood, with Tarzana to the west, Sherman Oaks to the east, and Reseda to the north.
Whether prospective buyers are searching for hillside living or dwelling in the flats, Encino has quite an inventory to offer on either side of the iconic Ventura Boulevard, one of Encino’s main arteries.
Known as The Valley’s Miracle Mile, the hot spot for upscale shops, boutiques, and dining options can be found on Ventura Boulevard between White Oak and Balboa.
Anchored by several lush parks and stunning grounds, nature lovers can enjoy the five-acre Los Encinos State Historic Park, the Sepulveda Dam, and Sepulveda Gardens.
Much like its neighbor Tarzana, Encino remained somewhat rural well into the 1920s when Hollywood was in need of ranch land to film which would later be sites for classics “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
