The sunny Valley was a suburban utopia for Hollywood celebrities with a penchant for sprawling ranches, and mid-century architects who were inspired by its vast open spaces, walnut and orange groves, and dramatic mountain views. Postwar "California ranch homes" and modernism quickly became a way of life, so it’s no surprise that you’ll find work by Schindler, Lautner, Waxman, Kappe, Spanner, Dorman, Ain, Palmer & Krisel, Fickett and Neutra that utilize natural materials and plenty of glass to blend with the Valley’s diverse landscape and hilly backdrop. Today, the region is home to 1.8 million people, has many of Los Angeles' top rated public, private and charter schools, and neighborhoods with wide streets and large lots. For breakfast, have the avocado toast at Joan’s On Third, take in a matinee screening at the ArcLight, stroll the Village at Woodland Hills and enjoy a scenic canyon drive to watch the sun set over the Pacific. Or head to Ventura Blvd., order margaritas and an oven-style burrito (trust us) at Casa Vega for a taste of local flavor, and shop for unique treasures in boutiques and specialty stores along the Boulevard.
