Sherman Oaks

Sherman Oaks is a neighborhood within the San Fernando Valley and was founded in 1927. Sherman Oaks includes a portion of the Santa Monica Mountains which gives it a lower population density than other areas of Los Angeles. A partner of the Los Angeles Suburban Homes Company, Gen. Moses Hazeltine Sherman, developed Sherman Oaks. He developed it as a quiet neighborhood near the surrounding Valley hotspots. Sherman Oaks has a rich history and the neighborhood still features some of its signature old-Hollywood architecture from the 1930s and includes iconic roads like Mulholland Drive and Ventura Boulevard. The residential areas of Sherman Oaks possess the timeless old LA feel. Its eye-catching villas mixed with the 1930’s “birdhouse” ranch-style homes, create diversity and energy throughout.
