Super exclusive, very expensive homes but they are new and beautiful. The area is new and gorgeous. There is nothing in the valley as private, new and clean. There is a new luxury shopping center being built and it’s just a exclusive part of the valley that accommodates wealthy people who want new incredible homes that are ultra modern and very private gated areas. It’s one of the preferred places to live in the valley. The air is clean, there are hills to walk. It’s the nices place to live ever! So happy here. Left Calabasas to live here because it’s new and more private. The homes are nicer, and new!

Wealthy area of the valley that’s very private and exclusive. It’s one of the newest, more modern parts of the valley where it’s full of wealthy people that are private people. They are building mega mansions around the area and the prices are just as expensive as other known places. It’s safe, with great hikes and trails. People here mind their buy, it’s very low key, many celebrities live here but they are extremely private and live here to the quiet, privacy. The houses are new and gorgeous, it’s very clean. The new shopping center is extremely upscale with green technology. This area is a private gem that’s filled with professional and private people that enjoy the mountains and quiet.
It’s newer and more modern as well as clean, versus Calabasas or hidden hills which is older and horse properties. Porter Ranch is beautiful and being built up with new high end stores. It’s more private and quiet with out all the nonsense of the Calabasas mess. That area is only popular because the Kardashian’s but in reality it’s old, and far at the end of the valley with no new homes, limited Resturant’s. You have to drive to the village for everything and it’s just not a nice as they make it seem on the show. Porter Ranch has new money and younger families with money. The porter ranch area is very desirable and a classy place to live. It’s very upscale and people in Porter Ranch are much more conservative, and like preserving the sanctuary of this area. There are many celebrities in the area but they keep to themselves and want privacy that’s why they chose this area. It’s an amazing place, the nicest in the valley.
