El Encanto is a small gated community located in the northern end of Calabasas. Established in 1988, El Encanto homes are nestled amongst the rolling hills of the nearby Santa Monica Mountains. This picturesque community attracts families and other individuals looking for a comfortable single-family home near a plethora of outdoor activities. El Encanto is located less than 10 miles from the beaches of Malibu and less than three miles from the convenient 101 freeway.
El Encanto real estate consists of mostly three to four-bedroom homes, ranging in size from approximately 1,800 square feet to over 2,500 square feet. These beautiful residences often boast Spanish-style architecture, gourmet kitchens, high ceilings, attached garages, mountain views, and outdoor patios. Calabasas is already one of the safest cities in Southern California, but the community gate adds yet another layer of security.
El Encanto homeowners pay a monthly HOA fee of about $290. This fee covers security, landscaping, and a resort-style pool and spa open to all residents and guests. For families, El Encanto is located directly across the street from Juan Bautista de Anza Park. One of the most popular parks in the area, this family-friendly recreation area offers rental space for gatherings, three play areas, an interactive water fountain, a large sports court, and three picnic areas. Additionally, de Anza Park serves as a trailhead for the popular Las Virgenes Trail. This hiking, biking, and equestrian trail winds through scenic Malibu State Park. Homes in El Encanto are also conveniently located near popular shops and restaurants. Plus, the public schools serving the community are award winning.
