Less than 15 miles from Woodland Hills and known as the heart of the Conejo Valley, Thousand Oaks has been called the best place to live in Southern California—and it’s easy to see why. Nearly 130,000 people live in this friendly, picturesque city, which began as a master-planned development in the 1950s.
Thousand Oaks takes up a little more than 55 square miles, and quite a bit of that space includes neighborhoods and distinctly different communities, such as Newbury Park. With beautiful grasslands and breathtaking oak trees, a temperate climate and happy residents, Thousand Oaks just might be the place for you.
Because Thousand Oaks has such a diverse blend of homes, from cozy one-bedroom houses to roomy estates, the average home price here is $610,000. Most people pay approximately $315 per square foot, but you will find significant variations in price depending on a home’s age, its location and its type. One thing is certain: there is something for everyone in this beautiful city.
Kids living in Thousand Oaks are part of the Conejo Valley Unified School District. In addition to the traditional schools, the CVUSD has several alternative schools where parents may enroll their children.
Thousand Oaks is located between Westlake Village and Camarillo on Highway 101, near its intersection with Highway 23.
