About Jill Schoelen
HI! I love hiking, golfing, running - and guess where I do it? All just within 2 to 15 minutes away from my home. Additionally, I love going to live theater, I love going to the movies, and I love going to museums. Best, I love doing all of these things often with them including music, especially jazz!!! All that is just outside the walls of my home - in our dynamic metropolis Los Angeles, as well as our neighboring counties. But best, is the music I have shared in my home with my two sons, both who are wonderful musicians - my 24 years old, makes his living as a composer and a producer, and my 21 year old is a gifted pianist who prefers to only play the piano for his own enjoyment and chooses business school at USC to lead him to his future. Oh what joy, happiness and creativity we have shared in our home, and are so happy to share those lingering feelings that live within the walls of our home. I was born and raised in the valley - birthed across the street from Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. My family lived in Burbank until we moved to another San Fernando Valley suburb, Encino. I started my career while still in high school, as an actress and singer, and travelled the world in my 20's and early 30's making films, until the day I became pregnant with my eldest son. The day I found out I was soon to be a mother, I made the decision to be a full-time mother. Now that my boys are of age and living in their own apartment, I decided to make a change, and so I have my home on Home Away, as I venture into new adventures of LIFE!!!!
Jill Schoelen purchased this House in 2002
Why Jill Schoelen chose Sherman Oaks
I choose Sherman Oaks to buy a home in 2002 because it is the most centrally located suburb/city in Los Angeles, and is centrally located to the very best schools in Los Angeles. It has been the perfect community to have full access to anything and everything for my family. I love walking and riding my bike, and this is a perfect neighborhood for both. And Stern Ave. (my street) is known for its gorgeous huge trees that line the street!!! Everyone in the neighborhood is wonderful - great neighbors and great neighborhood. If you like shopping, Sherman Oaks Fashion Square is just around the corner hostings store like Bloomingdales, Sephora, Apple Store, etc. And then we have the BEST and FINEST grocery stores all within 5 minutes in every direction of the house - Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Gelsons, the flagship Ralph's; along with fantastic restaurants mostly on Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks and Studio City as well!!!! Sherman Oaks is so centrally located to jump on the 405 fwy to get to Santa Monica, or Westwood, or to the airport, or the 10l N to go up to Santa Barbara, or the 101 South to the 5 to make your way to Disneyland and other Orange county atrractions. You can pop over one of 3 or 4 canyons and be in Beverly Hills, or West Hollywood in minutes, and Universal Studios and the Hollywood Bowl are only 10 minutes away. I sound like a broken record, but it is a wonderful melody - we are so centrally located!
What makes this House unique
I think the thing I love most about my home is the open floor plan. I love that my boys and company over the years sat at the kitchen counter while I make breakfast, lunch or dinner, and we have had the most outstanding discussions on everything from homework to philosophy, science, love and beyond. There is a large flatscreen TV with a sound bar, so any iphone can play music through bluetooth, central to the whole house and backyard. Everyone that comes through the door always comments on the happiness and joy they feel. I have a LED tree that illuminates the living room, and the yellow glass black splash in the kitchen adds extra bright and light and brings internal warmth just like sunshine!!!!

CA Film School Tour
We enjoyed staying in Jill's lovely home. It is very nicely decorated and furnished, and the kitchen is large with high-end appliances and everything you might need to cook or entertain. It is conveniently located and was a good launching point for our LA destinations. Jill was also very friendly, and she went out of her way to make our stay special and comfortable. We will be back to stay again when we visit LA in the future. Thank you, Jill!
