Located in the San Fernando Valley just north of the Santa Monica Mountains, Sherman Oaks sits at the intersection of two very busy freeways: the 405 and 101. While this important crossroads has resulted in a busy downtown commerical area of offices and shops, it also means traffic is a way of life for its 50,000 residents.
Still, you'll find quiet streets sporting homes ranging from a modest ranch-style house up to a sleek and modern mansion. And since this neighborhood dates back to 1927 there are lots of green spaces.
A big draw for families are the neighborhood's many excellent schools.
