Studio City

Offering privacy and solitude, something not often found in Los Angeles.

Welcome to Studio City

Tranquility among the hills in the heart of trendy SoCal.
Nestled within the San Fernando Valley, residents of Studio City are offered the best of all worlds. Quiet residential enclaves are tucked away on scenic mountain slopes, making for some of the most striking views in the city, while also offering privacy and solitude, something not often found in Los Angeles. Stylish eateries, expansive homes, and tranquil parks round out a well-balanced lifestyle, making this one of LA’s most desired spots to call home.
Once a large lettuce ranch, Studio City was the first large-scale megadevelopment in the city of Los Angeles. Created by movie mogul Mack Sennett, Studio City became a bedroom community for those working in nearby television and movie studios and the future CBS Studio Center. Today, the hub of the San Fernando Valley acts as a gateway of sorts to Hollywood with several famous names calling this hilly paradise home.

Local Lifestyle

Living in Studio City means never being far from anything one could ever want or need. Referred to as “The Jewel of the Valley,” locals are a stone’s throw from parks, preserves, and green spaces, restaurants specializing in a wide array of cuisine, coffee houses, and endless entertainment options. Top-rated schools, a long-running farmers’ market, and a close-knit network of friendly neighbors make this community feel like more of a small town, without sacrificing the high number of nearby modern-day conveniences.

Studio City is a culinary and entertainment mecca, while also offering plenty of ways to celebrate life’s special moments at home. No matter what your weekends may look like, this is one neighborhood you won’t mind playing tourist in and showing off to family and friends.

Nashville-style hot chicken arrived in the Valley with the opening of Humble Bird. A southern eatery boasting an unpretentious dining room has earned a loyal following among locals for mouth-watering spicy chicken, sandwiches, melts, and coleslaw, the perfect creamy accompaniment for this tasty bird.
American/Asian fusion is the specialty of Hungry Crowd. Lunch is casual but when the sun sets, the menu progresses, offering Korean-inspired takes on American favorites like spicy pork tacos, breakfast burritos, and Korean-style chicken and waffles.
The Studio City Farmers’ Market is much more than your typical market. While guests can browse through a massive variety of fresh produce, prepared hot cuisine, baked goods, and decorative items, the market also offers activities to entertain children like face painting, a petting zoo, and bounce houses.
Studio City is also home to several of Hollywood’s largest television and film studios, many of which offer tours throughout the week. Warner Brothers, Universal, Sony, Paramount, and Disney are just a few studios waiting to be explored. Both longtime and more new residents can all agree - this is one time when it’s truly fun to be a tourist in your own neighborhood.
