The Oaks Gated Community, CalabasasJanuary 6, 2017 by Gregory Corman
One of the more prestigious and exclusive communities in Southern California, The Oaks at Calabasas is a privateenclave that was developed during the early 2000s. Offering a 24-hour guard-gated entrance plus community amenities that include a clubhouse, state-of-the-art fitness center, Olympic-sized swimming pool, and tennis courts, homes at The Oaks have become highly sought-after properties. Most residents here were drawn to the area’s seclusion and its close proximity to topnotch schools under the Las Virgenes Unified School District.
The Oaks is located directly adjacent to acres of open space in the Santa Monica Mountains, providing residents with breathtaking views and lush foliage that include oak and sycamore trees, as well as miles of hiking and wilderness trails. Inside The Oaks is another affluent gated community, The Estates, which can be accessed through a second set of guarded gates. Nearby communities include the neighborhoods of Vista Point, Palatino, and Calabasas Park Estates to the east.
