Welcome to Sherwood
A dreamy terrain and stylish neighborhoods give this exclusive set of country club communities a fairytale feel set in the mountains north of Malibu.
Among the verdant, rolling hills and picturesque mountain backgrounds, the exclusive communities of Sherwood rest in a bucolic landscape of valleys and lush extravagance. At the focal point of it all, the private Sherwood Country Club
stands as a paragon of grandeur and sets the tone for the rest of the neighborhoods.
Sherwood and its communities are ensconced within the town of Thousand Oaks, yet remain separate from the city’s commercial bustle for a relaxed, secluded lifestyle. Famed golf course architect Jack Nicklaus — who also designed the club’s 18-hole championship course — described the beauty and privacy of Sherwood as rare and magnificent, and throughout its lifetime the area has been the setting for several Hollywood classics.
Perhaps the most revered and exclusive neighborhood within all of Conejo Valley, the prestigious, gated Sherwood Lakes community is positively brimming with multimillion-dollar properties. From the sprawling, French-country chateaux and Hampton-style mansions to the romantic Mediterranean estates, stately Victorians, and modern architectural masterpieces, the diversity of architecture in Sherwood proves that the breathtaking scenery is well-suited to bring out the best of any design.
