Car: Recommended

This beautiful home is located near the best Los Angeles has to offer.Universal Studios and walk is just 10 minutes away.

Check out:

Sunday Brunch at the Odyssey in Granada Hills (15Min)

Getty Museum (10 Minutes)

Lake Balboa-Offers a beautiful lake to walk around, play areas for children, paddle bat rentals and also featuring many bike trails that go around all through the Valley. Lake Balboa is just across the street.

Encino- is just minutes away with many great eats and a wonderful Cinema called Laemmle Town Center featuring independent and experimental film that you can't see at any typical theater. A theater for the artist eye.

Sherman Oaks-Galleria is the most popular place to be. It offers a large Archlight theater, 24 hour fitness, Cheesecake Factory, PF Chang and more. Also is close to Whole-foods Grocery.

Studio City-Many great places to eat, bar's to attend and next to Universal Studios. The city walk is my favorite. You can park at the bottom of the hill for free and tram up to amazing eats, shopping and fun times.

Hollywood-Is just over the hill from Studio City a good 20 minutes from the house. To many things to do there to count.

Downtown LA-A good 30 minutes from the house. A well known favorite bar is the Standard and go to the top of the building.

Santa Monica- A beautiful place that offers the pier and third street promenade.


Venice-Great place to see all walks of life. Fun to rent bikes a stroll along to ocean line.

Marina Del Rey-Yummy eats on the Marina including Killer Shrimp.

Malibu-North of Santa Monica ad offers the best hiking ever. Look online to discovers them.

South of Marina Del Rey is South Bay including Playa Del Ray, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and much more. These cities are 30-60 minutes from the house depending on traffic but worth a visit. Manhattan Beach is a favorite of mine and I recommend 'The Strand' restaurant which is on the ocean and turns night club at night.

Valencia is 20-30 minutes north of the house and is where Magic Mountain is located.

Disneyland is an hour.

Pasadena is 20-30 minutes.

Beverly Hill is 20 minutes.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hello, I'm Katy and I'm in the arts. I'm currently producing my first play this year. My background is in ballroom dancing, film and theater. My 12 year old son Alex also auditions for commercials and is currently featured in a commercial in Sweden.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Balboa, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
This property is a really beautiful home built in 2006. I loved living close to Lake Balboa not to mention all the custom features the house has to offer. It's just perfect for vacation renters to come and stay with larger groups in the Los Angeles area. L.A. tends to be expensive for lodging, and parking is often difficult. It is my hope that people can have a pleasant experience in this big city staying at Archwood Manor. The house is on a private street which is easy for parking. Plus families can get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and come back to Archwood Manor and relax and make dinner in a large, gourmet kitchen or enjoy the evening breeze while BBQing out on the fully equipped, patio surrounded by greenery.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Two person Jacuzzi tub in Master bath. Near Lake Balboa Parkway. Close to Universal City,Santa Monica, Woodland Hills, Hollywood,Burbank,Studio City, LA, The Getty museum and so much more. I love that its close to everything. 5-bedrooms, 3 full baths Great location, custom details throughout the home. also, I have added a full futon in the large bedroom and now have a queen air mattress.
