Surrounded by magnificent woodlands and mountainous terrain, Topanga is less than 15 minutes away from the Pacific coastline and just an hour removed from downtown Los Angeles. Its spectacular location truly makes it one of West LA’s best-kept secrets.
Topanga is a quiet little LA County village that flies a little more under the radar compared to its more conspicuous neighbors. And this relatively low profile is one of its biggest draws. The serene wooded setting attracts artists and nature lovers who revel and find inspiration in solitude and wide open spaces.
Over the years, Topanga has been home to many of Hollywood’s most influential stars, including Humphrey Bogart, Shirley Temple, and Robin Williams. Musicians like Neil Young, Alice Cooper, Joni Mitchell, and Marvin Gaye also count among Topanga’s superstar homeowners.
The village gets its name from a Native American Tongva tribe term that loosely translates to “a place above.” With its affluent and creative communities, incomparable views, and an environment that embraces “la vie Bohème,” Topanga takes LA life to greater heights.
