Thousand Oaks, California has been (and still is) one of the continental United States most beautiful cities and regions. Reasons abound.

1The air. The altitude is above sea level. In fact, it is mountainous. The terrain makes you feel like you are in the Rockies or the Smokie mountains… but that brings us to

2 The beaches. Just 25 minutes through the famed Santa Monica mountains—famous because just about every single movie in the early days of Motion pictures used them as a backdrop. The beaches are eponymous. People say Malibu and it’s not as if you have to explain it’s one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Sort of like Monte Carlo.

3The schools. Education in the Conejo Valley is, by far, one of the most coveted aspects of Ventura County. It’s “understood” that the stars a few minutes down the road in Hollywood come to reside in Thousand Oaks simply because of its blue-ribbon school system. Schools such as La Reina and Oaks Christian are known for their matriculation of the children of the Hollywood elite.

4 The safety. Thousand Oaks is also known for being

among the safest large cities in the nation. The city consistently ranks as the first or second safest large city (population between 100,000 and 499,999) in the United States in annual surveys, the main competition being nearby Simi Valley, as well as Amherst, New York, which has claimed first place seven times in the last 12 years

5The future. Because of the culture of civility, the gorgeous, year-round climate, a few of the world’s leading companies are deeply rooted and connected in Thousand Oaks. Just of few being; Amgen, Baxter and Guitar Center. Not exactly dying industries. In fact, those are just three that have been around. There’s also a vibrant cluster of parks already built and populated with future T.O. (Thousand Oaks) leaders, as well as plans for a brand new park in its early development.

These are just a few reasons why Thousand Oaks is attractive for home buyers and serious investors.

Let’s not forget we’re also a hop, skip and a jump from some of the world’s most beautiful ranch properties, Calabasas (translated means means “pumpkin,” “squash,” or “gourd,”), and beautiful surrounding gated and residential areas such as Sherwood Country Club and Hidden Hills.
