Welcome to Thousand Oaks
A spacious, active community often featured in Hollywood films
Thousand Oaks is the second-largest town in Ventura County and named after the plentiful oak trees in the region. Due to its lovely, natural setting, Hollywood producers and film crews have shot several movies and television series in Thousand Oaks. Many celebrities have ranches or properties in town that they can visit when they want to escape the limelight.
The Santa Monica Mountain Range surrounds Thousand Oaks, and a large amount of land in the area is deliberately undeveloped. This community has many newer single-family homes with contemporary, Ranch, or Spanish Mission Revival architecture. There are also many condominiums and luxury townhomes. The commonality with the properties in Thousand Oaks is that they all tend to have oak trees and share the same view of the mountains.
