For those who want to be near all of the excitement downtown Los Angeles offers but don’t want to actually live in LA, there’s Thousand Oaks. This smaller city sites only about 35 miles to the northwest of the downtown area, but it’s only home to around 130,000 people. Thousand Oaks is a fairly new city that was incorporated in 1964. It’s expanded quickly, though, and even annexed a number of nearby communities.
Why live in Thousand Oaks? According to the FBI, it’s one of the safest cities in the country. The weather here is also gorgeous, rarely getting above 80 in the summer or below 65 in the winter.
Thousand Oaks doesn’t have an LGBTQ neighborhood, but like many parts of LA, you’re sure to find a welcoming place for you and your family. Unfortunately, it’s very expensive to live here. The average property costs more than twice the national average. Even among Ventura County, prices are high.
Single-family homes here start out at $475,000. That’s not bad for the LA area, but these homes tend to be less than 100,000 square foot. More expensive single-family homes can be priced at over $25 million. Condos are also somewhat expensive, ranging from $210,000 to $825,000.
