Living in Westlake Village CA

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass DRE 00997649

The Spring housing market is in full swing in our beautiful Westlake Village community.  This time of year is one of my favorite as trees are in full bloom and even with the California drought the rain that we had has made the hillsides green and brought out the seasonal wild flowers that we all enjoy.

As many in the area are enjoying this Spring vacation season there are many who are calling about buying a home and Westlake Village is one of the communites in our area that has a special appeal to those considering a move to what we locals call "The Conejo Valley."

There are many beautiful surrounding communities and all have a special appeal.  Westlake Village has a robust energy with many new shopping areas with exciting shops, restaurants and entertainment.  

When we receive calls from potential home buyers for the Westlake Village area most have heard about the community from either friends who live here or possibly from just driving past this beautiful area.  

We are located minutes to Malibu, a short drive North to Santa Barbara and an easy commute to Los Angeles which adds to the appeal of this area.  Also, there are homes and townhomes in all price ranges, currently ranging in prices from $365,000 to $44M.  We have gated communities, waterfront homes and townhomes, golf course homes, large sprawling lots and small patio home lots as well as vacant land in which to build a home however land is priced at a premium and is less available.  

Having sold real estate in the local area for well over 2 decades I have watched this area change and grow yet still keep the serene ambiance of a suburban area.  If you or someone you know is considering a move and purchase of a home in Westlake Village or a local community please share this information.  I have lived, owned and invested in real estate and raised my children in the Westlake Village area since 1984.  Being involved in the community, business and local schools you can be assured that I can guide you and answer your questions about living in Westlake Village.

Hi Teri Pacitto ,  I love your photo, with the water clear as glass.  We have a low inventory here in Elkhart, Indiana too, but we are just now seeing more homes enter the market at the cold weather is about the end.

Hi Larry, yes the water can appear as such on some of our beautiful So Cal days.  That photo was taken from the deck of one of my lake listings.  We still have low inventory as well however I see signs of that changing as we get into the later spring and summer.  Thanks for stopping by from Elkhart.

This is a well-done and informative overview of the Westlake Village community. I've been there a couple of times but only briefly, but I liked what I saw. Sounds like an ideal location with proximity to places like Santa Barbara. Hope to hear more from you!

Good morning Grant.  Yes, Westlake Village is beautiful in July.  We just had our July 4th fireworks on the lake which is one of many annual events.  Watch for upcoming blog posts on this and more.  Trying to get my posts moving along but have been super busy this year.  Appreciate you stopping by.

I would love to live on a lake, as long as there was a beach in between me and the water!

Jul 28, 2016 06:57 AM
Teri Pacitto

Evelyn we have the beach 16.4 miles away so we have the best of all worlds here.

Great report, Teri Pacitto and boy, am I looking forward to retiring in an area like yours - so close to the beach and waterfront lake!  WOW!  Not, that's a dream-come-true!

Debe Maxwell Westlake Village and the Island of Westlake are great and many do retire in this area.  I know you have many beautiful lakes in your area as well as I have many family who have moved there from NY over the years.  I have been there and it's beautiful as well.  The beach communities we have here are a definite added benefit to this area that I have loved for over half of my adult life.     Appreciate your comments!

If I weren't so far along in my career, I'd move before retirement! Yes, we do have some gorgeous lakes but, that beach bonus has got to be the best lifestyle in the world!

I would love to be only sixteen miles from the beach. I would be a regular visitor!

Very lucky to have it so close and enjoy it often.  Even running to the fish market there is a short drive over the hill.  Come out and enjoy!

Overall, it sounds like a great place to live and near mountains & the ocean (great combo!).  I *love* the photo you included with it.  Funny... I looked at Westlake Village on Google Maps and noticed that the "island" in the lake appears to be half in Westlake Village and half in Thousand Oaks.  That just seems very odd to me.

Aug 09, 2016 04:43 AM
Teri Pacitto

Westlake Island is a great place to live and you are right...half of the Island is in Ventura County (Thousand Oaks)  and half in Los Angeles County (Westlake Village).   The bridge to the island is also divided into the two counties.  


It's confusing to many but explaining it is fun and not easily forgotten.  


Appreciate your comments.
