Named for the Spanish word for “Oak”, Encino is a well-established neighborhood of Los Angeles, and is, in fact, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley. With a population of just over 54,000 residents, Encino strikes a balance between urban vibrancy and residential living. The neighborhood has an eclectic mix of established homeowners and renters, giving Encino its own identity. With larger than average lots, Encino feels much quieter than many other surrounding neighborhoods.
Located 40 minutes northwest of Downtown Los Angeles, Encino is a highly popular neighborhood for many locals, largely because it has a small-town feel while being within walking distance to so many amenities. Some of the area’s most well-known features include Encino Commons, Sepulveda Dam, and Sepulveda Gardens, as well as the following areas:
- Los Encinos State Historic Park - while not the largest park you’ll find in the Los Angeles Metro area, this charming park is incredibly historic, as it was the site of Rancho El Encino. This California rancho includes the original eight-room de la Ossa Adobe, the Garnier building, a blacksmith shop, a natural spring, and a pond.
- Lake Balboa/Anthony C. Beileson Park - located on Balboa Boulevard, this charming park has Lake Balboa, cherry-blossom-lined walking paths, a pool, and more. It’s a wonderful area to rent a paddleboat or to have a picnic.
- Plaza De Oro Shopping Center - located on Ventura Boulevard, Plaza de Oro is a large, well-maintained shopping center with a variety of shops, restaurants, and retail spaces.
- San Vincente Mountain Park - set in the heart of the Santa Monica mountains, San Vincente Mountain Park offers 360-degree panoramic views of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley. It has many hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian trails.
What Our Clients Say
I've been a long-time tenant in Hollywood and this company including Josh and Sue have been great over the years and have also gone above and beyond for me at times. They're very responsive when there is the rare issue at my place (usually a minor appliance or plumbing maintenance thing), and they communicate well. I also love being able to pay my rent electronically. I highly recommend working with them in any capacity.
