Walnut Acres is a prestigious area in Woodland Hills comprised of large estate homes and ranches. An enclave of homes developed in the 1940s and 1950’s on agrarian-zoned parcels, properties in Walnut Acres average about 1-2 acres in size, allowing many of its residents to keep horses, various animals, and fruit trees at their estates. This unique quality is very rare in Woodland Hills and in most towns within the San Fernando Valley.
Historically, Walnut Acres was originally derived from an orchard where The Diamond Walnut Company grew their walnuts.
The area falls roughly between Victory Boulevard, Burbank Boulevard, and the Arroyo Calabasas. Over the years most of the parcels have been subdivided, but they are still generous lots.
The houses are custom designed and upscale where residents enjoy a quality lifestyle and can be found hosting many community block parties. There is a strong sense of community pride in Walnut Acres which is reflected in the property values. These equestrian properties range from custom builds to California Ranch styled homes with on site recreation ranging from sports courts, pools, and guest homes. There is no surprise that the prestigious living of Walnut Acres has attracted many residents in Los Angeles as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Woodland Hills.
For shopping, join the celebrities and locals who love the Westfield Topanga mall. In fact, don’t be surprised if you run into a reality star or two while you’re riding the merry go round or browsing the nearly 300 shops. The Westfield Topanga mall and Westfield Promenade are a shopper's dream, and will soon combine to form the largest shopping mall in California.
For more active pursuits, the hiking in this area is epic. Head over to the Upper Las Virgenes Open Space Preserve, which spans nearly 3,000 acres. The preserve has several hiking trails that take you through rolling hills and let you experience scenic vistas. If hiking is not your thing, you can picnic among shady oaks or enjoy mountain biking.
