Decades before Studio City became known as the Media Capitol of the World, it was The Jewel of the Valley. Both names still fit beautifully. We’ve had the pleasure of representing hundreds of homes in this community over the years — and next month, we’ll be doing that from our new Studio City home at the corner of Coldwater and Ventura. Here’s a snapshot of what makes this neighborhood so popular.

Studio City, here we come

Looking for small-town charm with a sophisticated edge? Welcome to Studio City. Set in the north foothills of the Santa Monica mountains minutes from Hollywood, Downtown and Beverly Hills, it’s one of the Valley’s most centrally located communities, defined by a long history and a rich show biz culture.
Studio City sprang up in the silent movie era around the 200-acre movie studio opened by slapstick king Mack Sennett in 1927. Republic Pictures bought the place in 1935, and it later became the CBS Studio Center. Today, Studio City residents are a creative mix of actors, musicians, writers, artists, studio execs, and workers at the many studios and entertainment-related businesses in the community — along with others who simply love the neighborhood and the tuned-in but relaxed lifestyle. more »

In the rest of the country, people take 101 north or 80 east. Yes, we know how weird that sounds, but we’re so in the minority on this. Why are we the only people in the US who introduce every freeway number with “the?” Is it because we were so quick to jump into the fast lane? Clearly, these are serious questions. And we have the answers. more »

When you say “Los Angeles architecture,” the word Victorian may not be the first to come to mind. But LA’s earliest great homes were Victorians, and despite the march of progress, many of the most awesome still survive. If you love these intricate creations, we’ve got a real treasure map for you. more »
