Located within Malibu Canyon, the community of Monte Nido Calabasas nestles into its valley, and is described by its Spanish name, which means “Mountain Nest”. These luxurious Calabasas properties and Monte Nido homes for sale are the epitome of Southern California living.
The area is technically located in Calabasas, outside the City of Calabasas as well as the City of Malibu. Monte Nido occupies its own valley, just east of Malibu Canyon, bordered by Mulholland Highway, Malibu Canyon Road and the Saddle Peak Mountain, which can be ascended via Piuma or Stunt Road. Monte Nido became connected to Malibu with the opening of Malibu Canyon Road in 1953. Prior to that, the route up over Saddle Peak then down via Rambla Pacifico and Las Flores had to be endured, too long to be practical. Now, Monte Nido is ten minutes from the beaches of Malibu as well as ten minutes from the central location of Calabasas and the 101.
Set within the exclusive Calabasas Park, in the beautiful City of Calabasas, close to all the amenities of the Los Angeles area and the Santa Monica Mountains, the Ridge has easy access to the 101 Freeway, and is just a short ride to the Ocean, Malibu and Santa Monica.
The community is serviced by award-winning Blue Ribbon School District, Las Virgenes Unified School District, one of the highest ranked districts in the State.
Residents of Calabasas luxury communities enjoy privacy unrivaled by any neighboring community, with over 20 privately gated communities (The Oaks of Calabasas, Mountain View Estates, Calabasas Country Estates, Hidden Hills, Vista Pointe, Westridge, Calabasas Park Estates, Calabasas Hills, The Ridge, Monte Nido, Bellagio, and many more) and over 10 communities 24-hour guard gated. Calabasas is an upscale community with the spirit and charisma of a quaint small town, still close in proximity to the Studio, Los Angeles International Airport, Downtown and only fifteen minutes to the beaches of Malibu.
Calabasas frequently makes news for the plethora of celebrities that call Calabasas home, and for being a bell-weathered community for many city laws including a strict Secondhand Smoke Control ordinance passed in 2006, and in 2013 the city banned plastic bags in all establishments.
The city of Calabasas offers a variety of attractions for their residents and visitors alike. The Malibu Creek State Park is considered the recreational crown jewel of the Santa Monica Mountains. It has over 8,000 acres of rolling tallgrass plains, oak savannahs and dramatic peaks. The Leonis Adobe Museum is dedicated to restoring, preserving and sharing the last of the old west. Experience California ranch life of the late 1800s. Visit a Victorian-style early Los Angeles home. See what jail was like in the Wild West and enjoy a picnic in picturesque Calabasas Creek Park with its antique ironwork and lovely gardens.
You have many wonderful choices when it comes to local dining. Pedalers Fork, a relaxed casual flair restaurant, genuine bar, 10-speed coffee and boutique bike shop. Sugar Fish is a different kind of sushi dining experience. They serve only traditional sushi of the highest quality based on Chef Nozawa’s style of sushi Kings Fish House, the local destination for fun and fresh seafood with a special menu that brings a taste of New England to the California Coast. Blue Table, a European style café with side-walk seating, communal table and an eclectic atmosphere and Toscanova an upscale Italian restaurant that is always bustling and continually offers Chef Sciandri's new and innovative specials, a modern approach on his classic dishes. Blu Jam Café, according to Blu Jam Cafe’s executive chef and owner, Kamil Majer, we eat with our eyes first. Once you see and experience their signature dishes, such as the crunchy French toast with vanilla bean sauce, you will know why Blu Jam Cafe was awarded the best breakfast in Los Angeles two years in a row.
The Commons of Calabasas with its elegant, open-air layout, distinctive Mediterranean architecture, lavish landscaping and dynamic fountain areas is the ultimate shopping, dining, entertainment and multi-theatre complex. If you are looking for an upscale supermarket, look no further. You have two choices; Gelson’s Market and Bristol Farms, which is set to open in late 2017. Just a few miles down the road is The Village at Westfield Topanga, a lifestyle destination featuring a fitness center, beauty salons, restaurants, retailers, attractions for children to play, plus watering stations for dogs.
