Welcome to Westlake Village

Coastal breezes seep through canyons to allow Westlake to sometimes be up to 10 degrees cooler and considerably less hazy than nearby San Fernando Valley during the summer months. North Ranch is a gated, 4,700-acre community nestled among the rolling hills of Westlake Village, California. Surrounded by mountain views and natural terrain, this residential community features a variety of attached and single-family homes situated within a peaceful setting. Residents have access to amenities like parks, trails, and championship golf courses such North Ranch Country Club, as well as a vibrant social atmosphere. North Ranch is also right under an hour drive north of Los Angeles, for big-city perks and about an hour and half south of Santa Barbera for relaxing weekend getaways to quiet beaches and excellent seafood dining.
