Colfax Meadows Studio City
OKAY Colfax Meadows Studio City isn’t South Of Ventura BUT it is just as prestigious a neighborhood and deserves to be talked about here.
Colfax Meadows Studio City was developed in the 1920 and is considered one of Studio City’s original neighborhoods. Back then the large lots and sprawling ranch homes were nestled between Acama to the north, the Los Angeles River to the south, Colfax Avenue on the west and Beck to the east. Those original boundaries are still very obvious today. There are no sidewalks in old Colfax Meadows. The lots are larger by twice than in the “extension” and the streets are shaded by huge sycamore trees. I should say that in the last few years a lot of the large lots have disappeared to jam more homes into the area. Kelsey Street now has almost twice as many homes on it as it did 15 years ago. The boundaries for the area known as Colfax Meadows today are The Los Angeles River (south), Moorpark (north), Colfax (West) and Tujunga ( east).
There are many things that have made Colfax Meadows “the place to live”. Of course location plays a huge part.
Walking distance to Radford Studios, the Farmer’s Market and Tujunga Village. Easy access to the freeways and Ventura Blvd. The friendliness of the neighborhood and the streets just begging to be strolled down. One of the main reason for some is the school. Colfax Meadows is in the Carpenter Community Charter School District, well sort of, there is a section that is considered “optional”. If going to Carpenter is important please contact the school. Living in the district does not always mean your child can attend. After all there are just so many desks and this is one popular school.
So now you are wondering “What does it cost to live in this elusive enclave of Studio City?” Well the average sales price for a 4 bedroom, four bath single family home with approximately 2,500 Square feet is $1,600,000. A 3,700 square foot home on Kelsey with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths sold in 2015 for $2,775,000. This home sat on one of the areas larger lots (28,000 square feet).
A home on Beck that was built in 2015 and featured 5 bedrooms, 3 baths, 3,800 square feet on a 6,700 square foot lot sold in 18 days for $2,625,000
If you want to see Colfax Meadows at its finest take a walk through the neighborhood on Halloween. People come from all over to rake in the goodies and take in the ghoulish sights.
