Valley Village is a community within the San Fernando Valley which dates back to 1939. The Valley Village community first formed when workers at nearby motion picture studios began building houses there. It was originally part of the artistic neighborhood of North Hollywood but quickly became known as the idealistic small-town community. From the prestigious and highly desired, Colfax Elementary School to the variety of local cafes and eateries like Four ‘N 20, and Hugo’s to name a few. Valley Village’s attractive location, it’s located adjacent to Studio City, has resulted in increased demands for beautiful homes. Marilyn Monroe lived in Valley Village on Hermitage Avenue in 1944 with her then husband James Dougherty. This was where she was asked to pose for her first pin-up photo. To this day, Valley Village remains a coveted and highly desired part of the Valley.
