Nine miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, this exclusive and acclaimed planned community is largely centered on the 125 acre lake for which it is named. This exclusive suburb straddles the Los Angeles-Ventura County line with a wide range of homes from small cottage-like single-story townhomes to gated lakefront properties on the popular Westlake Island. This model community was conceived by prominent architects and land planners who created walking paths through many of the areas that lead to parks and open space. A controlled-growth policy has kept this area charming and elegant; all while maintaining environmentally-conscious policies that have been in place nearly since the city’s inception.
The “Village” is a loose term that incorporates Westlake Plaza, with its first-class restaurants and boutique shopping, with neighboring hotels and businesses. Just on the other side of the freeway, The Promenade features a Cineopolis Theatre, restaurants, and up-market shopping. There are additional shopping areas at the newly-built Shoppes at Westlake. Walkers, joggers, and bike riders are a common sight and enjoy the network of pathways, walkways, parks, and trails, encouraged by the beautiful year-round weather.
With excellent schools in both the Las Virgenes (L.A. County) and Conejo Valley Unified (Ventura County), top-rated public schools are a common draw for families who call this home. In addition, the acclaimed Oaks Christian serves grades 5-12. There are other parochial and private schools in the area that give residents a wide choice. A new YMCA is situated on top of a hill with spectacular views and includes eight acres of lighted athletic fields, a skate park, playground, and a full-service health and fitness center. With a multitude of additional parks in the area, this facility complements the plentiful recreation opportunities already available in Westlake Village.
Offering an array of housing choices that match every need and lifestyle, from condominiums in the $400’s to multi-million dollar luxury estates, first-class schools, plentiful shopping and dining, and a haven for recreation, Westlake Village’s charm and elegance is in dramatic contrast to the spectacular and rugged surrounding foothills.
