Captivated by Calabasas: Why Everyone Wants to Move There
(And Why You Should, Too!)
If you’ve spent any time watching a certain cable entertainment channel, you’ve likely seen a show or two about “keeping up” with a certain celebrity family (yep, that family: the Kardashians). And in those episodes, you’ve gotten a behind-the-scenes look inside some breathtaking homes. Those homes you’ve seen? They’re probably the ones they own in Calabasas, a suburb just outside of Los Angeles. And Calabasas? It’s gained so much popularity in the last decade that it’s now ranking up there with Beverly Hills as one of the most prestigious areas to live around L.A. Why, you ask? Here are just a few of the perks.
The Perfect Proximity
When it comes to prime locations, Calabasas checks all the boxes. Just west of the San Fernando Valley and north of the Santa Monica Mountains, quiet Calabasas is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of L.A. — although it’s only a short 30-minute drive to get back to all the action. The tranquil area has year-round access to plenty of hiking trails, beaches, and other recreational areas for the nature buffs, not to mention beautiful, scenic views that include rolling hills and waterfalls. And as far as shopping and dining are concerned, Calabasas has just the right variety, from national chains to high-end boutiques.
Aside from the stellar location, another top selling point that often seals the deal for new residents is the close-knit neighborhood vibe. Calabasas is not just known for its low crime rate and award-winning schools; the city throws some of the best events around — festivals, free concerts, goat yoga (!), and cooking classes, just to name a few. And guess what? These events are going on all year long. Becoming an active member of the community doesn’t get much easier than that.
Variety of Housing
Calabasas may offer plenty to see and do, but there’s another major feature that draws the attention of many of its potential homeowners: privacy. Several of the neighborhoods are gated, and there’s no shortage of sprawling mansions around the area, so celebrities are naturally drawn to Calabasas. But just as there are ultra-luxurious options available for the rich and famous, there are modest and downright affordable options as well. The average property value is just over $1 million, with the properties ranging from condos and manufactured homes to multi–million-dollar estates.
Some of the more popular neighborhoods in the Calabasas area include:
The Oaks of Calabasas – A favorite among the celebrities and other high-profile residents, these luxury homes are priced well over $2 million, up to nearly $40 million.
Edenwild and Park South – These communities are perfect for those looking for large, high-value properties located close to award-winning schools. Their prices range from $5–$12 million.
Greater Mulwood and Calabasas Park Estates – Spacious yet affordable homes, ranging from $2–$3 million, make up these family-friendly neighborhoods.
Calabasas Village – The most affordable option, this manufactured home community dates back to 1973 but features a mix of old and new construction. The typical selling price ranges from $200,000 to $600,000.
If you’ve been looking for a place that encompasses the 3 C’s (comfort, community, and convenience, that is), Calabasas is certainly the place to consider.
