Sherman Oaks a quiet LA suburb that allows for city convenience with small town peacefulness. High-end malls and a smattering of hip boutiques and restaurants are a draw for the families who call Sherman Oaks home. Contemporary single-family homes are the norm in this suburb, though you can also find older, traditional architecture of the 30’s and 40’s with some beautiful Mid Century modern’s that pepper the hillside. This Valley enclave is known for its retail scene, with three main malls to choose from including the open-air Galleria and great dinning that providing residents with just enough to keep them busy in this quiet town. Chain restaurants and big-brand stores are far more plentiful in Sherman Oaks than the quirky, independent boutiques and eateries you’ll find in other parts of LA.
