Living the dream of a perfect lakefront community is what we hear all the time from Westlake Island homeowners. I am often asked if this is really an island or just a name of a community. Yes, it is an island and a private guard gated community accessed by a bridge where half of the bridge is located in Los Angeles County and the other half in Ventura County. One side of the Island is located in Los Angeles County and the other is located in Ventura County.
There is a manned 24/7 gate so the security is one of the reasons why many choose to live in this highly sought after community. The lifestyle of having your own boat dock and boat offers one access to a quick cruise around the lake, dinner on your boat or going to one of the three local restaurants that are all lake front and accessible by boat. Some restaurants will serve you on your boat if you call ahead making this a very unique dining experience in the heart of the Conejo Valley. The lake is also where residents can go fishing, however it is catch and release. The lake is known for kayaking and sailing as well as electric boats up to 18’ are allowed as well.
The homes on Westlake Island are some of the highest priced per square foot in the local area. This is due to the uniqueness of the location with limited land and the gated island.
The homes on Westlake Island vary in price depending on the location and condition of the home. Even a home that would need a total remodel might cost a minimum of $1.5M and there are homes that are in the price range of up to $9M +. The last vacant lot on this exclusive Island sold at $2M. Homes are often sold and torn down and rebuilt, as land is very valuable on the Island. There is truly nothing like this in the area or probably anywhere I can think of in the greater market area.
