You’d be hard-pressed to find a better locale for your long-awaited “happy ever after” than Mountain View Village, a quiet community that overlooks the San Fernando Valley in California. It’s only 30 miles from Los Angeles, an extraordinarily interesting city; yet it’s a mere 5 miles from Calabasas, which is on the outskirts of the Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area. Residents love to attend theatrical productions at the West Valley Playhouse, located at the Promenade Mall in Woodland Hills. The theater offers plays in a variety of genres including comedy, drama, and musicals.
Calabasas is only 5 miles down the road, making it a good destination for an adventuring day trip. One of the highlights is Malibu Creek State Park, a natural setting with views of waterfalls, gorges, cliffs, and gurgling creeks: The address is 1925 Las Virgenes Road. Other attractions here include the Leonis Adobe Museum, located at 23537 Calabasas Road, and King Gillette Ranch, located at 26800 Mulholland Highway.
The world-famous Santa Monica Pier, a 22-mile jaunt away, is sure to become one of your favorite hang out spots. It’s a great place for fishing, but make it a family affair so everyone can enjoy the Ferris wheel, roller coaster, and historic carousel. Tour the aquarium, where you can feed sea stars on Fridays and attend an event called Sand Crab Science on Wednesdays. Don’t leave without dropping into the Route 66 Shop, a small enterprise located at the point where the iconic highway meets the sea.
Mountain View Village is a beautifully designed, all-age, family and pet-friendly manufactured home community. The community is gated and uniquely located on this mountain-top property and offers a number of amenities including a swimming pool, spa, community clubhouse, and several outdoor gathering areas perfect for a sunset barbeque. To tour a home available for rent or purchase, call 818-883-0614. The address is 24303 Woolsey Canyon Road, West Hills, CA.
