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.”
