Northridge and Porter Ranch Real Estate

Northridge (which formally included the newer city of Porter Ranch) is located in the northwest portion of the San Fernando Valley and is surrounded by Granada Hills, Chatsworth, Porter Ranch, Van Nuys, Winnetka and Reseda.

Northridge encompasses a large area and is, perhaps, best known for being home to California State University, Northridge (or “CSUN”). Because the city hosts this school, housing ranges from lower dollar student housing to million dollar homes simply depending on where you are in the neighborhood. 


The majority of housing in the newer city of Porter Ranch is in gated-communities and includes several developments that include luxury condos and townhomes as well as single family homes. Many students in Porter Ranch attend the very popular Castlebay elementary school as well as the newer Kindergarten through ninth-grade Porter Ranch Community School, both of which are part of the Los Angeles Unified School District. And for those who opt for a private education, there are also a variety of very reputable private schools nearby. Porter Ranch also boasts the full-service Porter Valley Country Club. 

Add to these lovely areas a mix of parks, a community pool, the award-winning Northridge Hospital Medical Center, the Northridge Fashion Center and the Porter Ranch Town Center and it’s easy to see why this area continues to flourish.
