The historic and upscale neighborhood of Sherman Oaks, especially along Ventura Boulevard, is easy to explore on foot. Our Sherman Oaks houses for sale are nestled among many of LA’s favorite restaurants and stores, just “over the hill” from Bel Air and Beverly Hills. Check out Señor Fred’s for their killer margaritas and delicious food to boot. Gyu-Kaku is Japan’s sublime take on Korean barbecue, while Boneyard Bistro represents an American take on grilling.
Mini-mansions are everywhere in Sherman Oaks, while mega-mansions are found south of Ventura Boulevard in areas like the Longridge Estates. The area features a high-end mall, good public and private schools, and easy (albeit often congested) access to the Westside via Coldwater Canyon or Beverly Glen. Both roads provide pleasant drives even when in traffic. Sherman Oaks is at the busiest freeway interchange in the nation—the intersection of the 405 and 101 freeways. If you want to wait out traffic or get some reading done, the Van Nuys Sherman Oaks Park is a great option.
