Westlake Homes for Sale
One of the most affluent communities in the L.A. metro area, Westlake Village is located in both Los Angeles and Ventura counties. The part of it that’s in L.A. County became the City of Westlake Village back in the ‘80s, while its other portions were annexed by Thousand Oaks in the ‘60s and ‘70s. It can get confusing, but know that when folks here refer to “Westlake Village,” they’re referring to the community as a whole.
A waterfront, master-planned community with a total combined area of 12,000 acres – 3,456 in L.A.

Hiking trails are plentiful, as are horse trails, and the nearby Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area for more choices in outdoor recreational activities.
