Wonderful, awesome place to live if you can afford the rent or to buy a home! Toluca Lake has a lot of history going all the way back to the old movie studio days when Bob Hope had an estate here, as well as more recent stars such as Just Bieber (rumor has it he paid $44,000 per *month* to live in one of the nicest homes here). Anyway, my biggest complaint is there are sections of the city with no sidewalks and if you walk a lot, you may be forced to walk on neighbors' yards. Other than the high taxes everyone in California pays, there's really no complaints. People *love* the Toluca Lake address as it immediately conjurs up images of the rich and elite. Not to worry, there are plenty of nice apartmens and homes for far, far less than what Bieber pays!

Toluca Lake is a wonderful city to live and raise a family. There are lots of young family moving into the area. Toluca Lake is an affluent neighborhood that splits into two city Los Angeles and Burbank. Home property value on the Los Angeles and Burbank side of Toluca Lake are extemely high and expensive compare to other affluent SFV neighborhood. There are two lakes, Los Angeles and Burbank side. I tend to prefer homes on the Burbank side of Toluca Lake, cause you get the Burbank amenities and “Toluca Lake” address. When houses comes up for sale, they don’t last very long on the market. There’s a waiting list to buy homes in Toluca Lake. People “love” the Toluca Lake address, cause your neighbor is mostly a famous celebrity. Celebrities lives on both the Burbank side of Toluca Lake and Los Angeles side.
I like how clean it is. The people are friendly as well as dog friendly. Everything is nearby, you have a Trader Joe’s, tons of eating places like Sweet Salt, Lemonade, Chipotle, Thai food, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Le Pain Q, Starbucks, Tokoya. You have multiple banks around like Chase, Wells Fargo among others. In addition, you have nail salons. There is even a Dry Bar
