Settled snugly in the northern foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains in western Los Angeles County, the City of Westlake Village is nine miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and 38 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. Occupying only 5.4 square miles, averaging 900 feet above sea level, the community is framed by the Simi Hills to the north and the Santa Monica Mountains to the south.
In l963, the American-Hawaiian Steamship Company bought the 12,000 acre ranch and, in partnership with Prudential Insurance Company, commissioned the preparation of a master plan for a "city in the country." Prominent architects, engineers and land planners participated in designing a unique, integrated community that has become a nationally acclaimed model for the planned community concept. "The city in the country" was named Westlake Village and soon became recognized as one of America's most successful suburbs and finest areas to live, work, and raise a family.
Straddling the Los Angeles and Ventura county line, Westlake Village boasts easy accessibility to Los Angeles and the Central Coast.
