Countless celebrities, musicians, and industry types reside in this Valley community thanks to a close proximity to the studios and L.A. proper—just over the hill via Laurel Canyon. Families appreciate the 11 schools within Studio City, including the famed (and private) Harvard-Westlake and Campbell Hall, and various parks and recreation areas. Architectural standouts include Rudolph M. Schindler’s Goodwin House, Edward H. Fickett’s home in Fryman Estates, and the Tufeld Residence by Gregory Ain. There are lots of renovated Mid-Century offerings, along with Traditional two-story homes on quiet streets in the hills. Enter gastropub heaven at Black Market, enjoy some of the best sushi in L.A. at Sugarfish, shop for Heidi Merrick dresses at DARI, and do weekend brunch at iconic Joan’s on Third.
