what are the prime sections in Studio City, CA?

Asked by Elaine, Summit, NJ Fri Feb 6, 2009

We've been reviewing the Studio City listings on Trulia and it's hard to tell. We have 2 young childen, i in 1st grade and we want to be in the Carpenter School district of Studio City

I don't agree with the others fully. I don't think the price area is south of Ventura. ALL of Studio City, within its relatively small borders, offers a unique place to live, shop, dine, work and have fun. Prime area depends upon each person's values. The flat areas of Colfax Meadows are very popular because there are homes from the 1920's through 2009. Lots also vary from the average 6.750 to over an acre. The areas north of Moorpark share a similar history for architecture and a variety of homes. Along Ventura Blvd. there are many shops and restaurants that residents of the flat areas North and South of Moorpark and easily get to without using a car. South of Ventura has flat areas in what is commonly called the "Silver Triangle" described above. Off of Laurel Canyon, you find Fryman Canyon with a quiet country feel and close to nature walks and dog parks. There are hundreds of homes in the Dona's area: Each street name starts with Dona _____ such as Dona Maria. These are unique homes built in the early 1960's and one of the only areas around with ALL underground utilities. Some of these homes have views too. The hills offer cottages to huge estates sometimes even on the same street. Having lived in a view home south of Ventura, I can say that the views are a real treat with our gorgeous mountains in the background.

So "prime" is whatever you prefer. Studio City is Very Unique in that it offers many different kinds of Prime areas. It also enjoys close proximity to major freeways going north/south and east/west as well as Canyons that access the Hollywood Hills, Beverly Hills, Bel Air and the West Side of Los Angeles.

Some says that south of ventura Blvd in between coldwater canyon blvd all the way to Vineland is the best area, but most of my clients would disagree.
To be in the Carpenter school district you can by anywhere in between Laural canyon blvd and Colfax ave, north or south of the blvd. Some new families would prefer North of the blvd if they have kids because of the flat land they have north of the blvd and less danger from the hills.
I would recommend to purchase a home just north of the blvd close to Colfax ave, there are great homes there in good prices.
Let me give a source that is 100% free to all to look at the market just like a real estate agent does.
Click the link to site in the bottom and take a look at the market in that area..

Good luck.

Prime Studio City really depends on your needs, many factors will determine what is prime. If you want the most desirable areas than south of the Blvd ( South of ventura Blvd ) is where you want to be. if you want more land and an open space you might want to look in colfax meadows and areas near beeman park and the studio City golf and tennis area. Studio City has wonderful schools like carpenter and dixie canyon and great areas for dining shopping and entertainment. Home prices have been at record lows and opprtunitiesto buy properties have never been better in the area, http://www.check out studiocitylife.wordpress.com for more resources and information.

Hi Elaine,

The above link should lead you to a map of the Carpenter Avenue Elementary School District (bordered on the west mainly by Whitsett Ave, the south by Mulholland Drive...and snakes its way around, as you can see). Some listings will mention the "Silver Triangle," which is another way of saying "bordered by Ventura Blvd, Laurel Canyon, and Laurel Terrace;" the Silver Triangle is contained within the Carpenter School District.


This link will lead you to the school's web page, if you are interested.

As for hot areas, South of the Boulevard is favored because most of the homes are in the hills, but there are some beautiful homes (and a few great deals) on flat land.

Best of luck,
