Situated between mountains and within site of nearby parklands, Calabasas' quiet and privacy has attracted a multitude of big-name actors and singers. It's not all mansions and millionaires here, however. You'll find condos and modest homes for less than $400,000. Rentals are relatively affordable as well. But if you are the type looking to spend millions on a sprawling compound with a panic room, well, Calabasas has that, too.
Despite the celeb cachet, this is not the kind of place you should come if you're looking for a foodie's paradise or a good nightlife. The limited dining options are mostly clustered in a few shopping plazas just off the 101 highway. Depending on how you classify a "bar", you'll find maybe two here.
The secluded location comes at a price however, no matter how affordable your home: if you work in any of the main business centers in LA you can expect a lot of time sitting in traffic unless you leave very, very early in the morning.
