Studio City

Originally known as Laurelwood, the area Studio City occupies was formerly part of Rancho Ex-Mission San Fernando. But in 1927, Mack Sennett began building a new studio on 20 acres donated by the land developer and the area was renamed Studio City.
It is bordered on the north by Valley Village, on the east by Toluca Lake and Universal City, on the south by Hollywood Hills West and on the west by Sherman Oaks. The CBS Studio Center is still a major landmark.

Studio City is one of the Valley’s most popular communities because of its proximity to a number of freeways and the Coldwater Canyon, Laurel Canyon and Cahuenga Pass accesses to the Westside. Along Ventura Blvd. are some of the hippest restaurants in the San Fernando Valley plus the very popular Studio City Farmers’ Market. Residential neighborhoods of note are Beeman Park and Colfax Meadows north of the Blvd. and Fryman Estates and “the Dona’s” south of the Blvd. Studio City also has the most expensive multi-residential complexes and the highest average per square foot prices for both single family and multi-residential properties in the Valley. Carpenter Elementary School is one of the best in all of Los Angeles Unified School District and is a big draw for buyers. Studio City is also home to Harvard Westlake School – one of the best high schools in L.A.
