Parts of Woodland Hills and West Hills are similar to Yorba Linda. They are within the City of Los Angeles, but you'd never know it. Easy drive to Northridge from either.

Also, Knollwood in Granada Hills comes to mind, which is literally right around the corner from Northridge.

Porter ranch, and Northridge if you work out of Northridge. Redondo Beach or El Segundo is working in El Segundo.

My first thought was woodland hills as well just like Yorba Linda, but better IMO. At least better shopping.

To me, that's not Santa Clarita unless we're talking a couple of older streets in Newhall. And, at that point, you're not getting the feel of "being close" to the rest of L.A.
Thanks! What if we were looking for "strictly suburban"? the leafy description is nice, but not required. I'm not sure I totally understand what "strictly suburban" means.... are there other areas we should consider if we broaden that aperture?

THANK YOU!

Thank you - I'm not familiar with Woodland Hills, so will add it to the list of places to explore.

Probably that most of Santa Clarita is a planned development with HOA tract home and condo communities built around the mall and shopping plazas with mostly big chain stores and restaurants.

Yep, that ^

It feels more like Temecula or Irvine. If you liked planned suburbia and sterility, then go for it.

Yorba Linda has the feel of an established, leafy, hilly suburb with some character. It has matured beautifully.
