Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Simi Valley
Cutting-edge, modern properties with breathtaking, mountainous landscapes just behind your windows are waiting for you in this wonderful, peaceful area.
Admire them from your private, warm pool. You won’t spot here a house without solar panels on the rooftop nor one where the waste isn’t segregated. An ecological lifestyle is rather a norm more than an exception which results in the extremely fresh air in the area.
Moving to the mountainous area can be an excellent solution when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. There’s easy access to clean sidewalks, spacious, green parks, and more room to wander (especially in magnificent mountains), which is unbelievably helpful when you’re trying to squeeze in exercise around your work and family life. Oh, and let’s not forget the fresh air - it will definitely be a relief for your lungs.
Living in a more disconnected area is perfect for someone who wants to have plenty of space for themselves and be surrounded by wonderful landscapes with close access to camping, fishing, and other recreational opportunities, as well as the people who feel the same way they do about the neighborhood.
If you really think about changing the surrounding area completely and escaping the big city, it may be useful to draw up a fantasy list of everything you’re looking for in a small community - but with a dose of realism in the sense that you’re only including features and amenities you truly want.
Every neighborhood is going to have pros and cons, but it’s up to you to decide what your ideal place to live is like and then try to discover it.
The only downside we see in this neighborhood is how infrequently the properties can be bought here. It would possibly be easier to spot a unicorn with a pot of gold than to find a house for sale in this luxurious area. But once you do discover the perfect home, you won’t leave this place ever again - we certainly wouldn’t!
Just as a warning, you might want to ask your local expert about any “dark” pockets of the house you’re interested in. Since there are plenty of hills and mountains here, the sun can cast shadows on your home during different times of the year or the day.
If you’re buying a place that’s likely to be in a deep shadow for two or three months out of the year, then that’s something you may want to know upfront so it doesn’t take you by surprise.
