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.
Sherman Oaks is bordered on the north by Van Nuys and Valley Glen, on the east by Valley Village and Studio City, and on the south by Bel-Air and Beverly Crest, and on the west by Encino.
72,046 people live in Sherman Oaks, where the median age is 39.6 and the average individual income is $70,769.32. Data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.
