Tarzana Homes for Sale
Tarzana is one of the oldest neighborhoods in San Fernando Valley, situated on a gentle uphill slope leading towards the Santa Monica Mountains. Incorporated in 1962, the town was named after the iconic character Tarzan, who was the creation of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Before Tarzana became a vibrant residential community that it is today, it was Tarzana Ranch, an estate owned by Burroughs. This explains why the town was named after his most enduring masterpiece. In keeping with the town’s history and literary heritage, the neighborhood adapted the lion as its town symbol.
Tarzana is a great place to live and raise a family and has a wide variety of options for schools, whether private or public. Tarzana’s relaxed, almost country-like atmosphere is a rarity considering its close proximity to the downtown Los Angeles area, making it ideal for a lot of homebuyers.
Ventura Boulevard, one of the main routes leading to San Fernando Valley, cuts across Tarzana and is lined with an array of various businesses – retail shops, restaurants, coffee shops, shopping centers, supermarkets, theatres, to office buildings, you name it!
Located on Roseda Boulevard, you’ll find Braemar Country Club, an exclusive country club, where members can enjoy world-class amenities that include a 27-hole championship golf course, tennis and basketball courts, swimming pools, and amazing fine dining and lounging options.
South of Tarzana, you’ll find Topanga State Park. It has an extensive 36-mile trail network and is considered the largest state park that’s within city limits in the country. It’s a great accessible getaway where you can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities from hiking, camping and wildlife viewing to biking and horseback riding.
South of Ventura, you’ll find large, upscale residential properties with price tags that run in the millions and are considered as some of the most expensive in Los Angeles County. Luxury homes with large lots are not unusual so it’s no surprise why Tarzana is where more than a few high-profile Hollywood celebrities and executives have chosen to live.
