Sherman Oaks provides a quiet retreat right in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. This peaceful neighborhood boasts lots of green spaces along with a wide selection of charming restaurants and shopping areas – not to mention some of the most luxurious homes and apartments north of the Hollywood Hills. Its broad boulevards and classic architecture lend a feeling of “Old L.A.” to this modern corner of town. The area’s roots date all the way back to 1927, when the Los Angeles Suburban Homes Company developed Sherman Oaks as a quiet neighborhood near the surrounding Valley hotspots. Today, it’s proved an attractive place for the city’s more affluent residents to settle down.
