More than anything, Thousand Oaks is a residential center inhabited by affluent commuters. Some of the neighborhoods that found in Thousand Oaks include:

North Shore:This gated community of about 100 residences was constructed during the mid-nineties. Home sizes range from about 2200 to 2500 square feet. Each features 3 to 5 bedrooms and a 3-car garage. A good number of the homes in this neighborhood have coveted views of gorgeous Lake Sherman.

The homes feature either a two or three car garage. These homes also enjoy open floor plans, large family rooms and soaring ceilings.
