Amestoy Estates is one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Encino, and doubtlessly, the most prestigious Encino community north of Ventura Boulevard. Yes, you heard that correctly I said NORTH of Ventura Blvd and not SOUTH of Ventura Blvd. Typically in the San Fernando Valley, the most highly sought-after properties are located South of Ventura Boulevard, however, communities such as Amestoy Estates in Encino challenge that prevailing notion. Comprised of 575 properties and select condominiums in an area of about one square mile, the highly sought-after neighborhood is seemingly shielded by grand oak and walnut trees, giving the community a sense of seclusion and privacy. The neighborhood attracts families, high-profile individuals, and others looking for a tight-knit sense of community in Los Angeles.
Amestoy Estates real estate consists of mid-century homes up to brand new construction. In recent years this community has been very popular with real estate developers who have built some trophy worthy estates. The homes in this thriving community generally sit on generously sized lots lining quiet streets. While much of the neighborhood lacks sidewalks, the family-friendly enclave is still teeming with walkers and joggers. The architecture in Amestoy Estates is also varied. Spacious ranch homes sit next to modern- and Mediterranean-inspired estates. The spacious lots afford room for pristine landscaping, outdoor living rooms, custom pools, and more.
Amestoy Estates is conveniently located within walking distance to the shops, cafes, and restaurants on Ventura Boulevard. For families, Encino Park has located off Ventura Boulevard and Genesta Avenue. This community park offers playgrounds, basketball courts, and tennis courts.
