Hidden Valley, CA
Hidden Valley is tucked away within the Santa Monica Mountains, adjacent to Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks. This affluent ranch community is made up of large single family homes on expansive land parcels, whose residents rely on wells as their source of drinking water. To the east of the Hidden Valley is Lake Sherwood, to its west is Newbury Park, and the Santa Monica National Recreation Area is due south en route to the ocean. Hidden Valley remains a secluded community with rugged charm.
Being close to Los Angeles with its unique ranch environment, Hidden Valley has long been a filming spot of many movies and television shows.
