Lake Sherwood

Located in the Santa Monica Mountains, south of Thousand Oaks and west of Westlake Village, Lake Sherwood is an unincorporated guard gated community comprised of over 650 homes in three gated neighborhoods along with the Sherwood Country Club and Sherwood Lake Club. The lake, California’s oldest man-made lake, is privately owned and is not open to the general public. Lake Sherwood was formed when, in 1904, a 45-foot dam was built that created the 156-acre Potrero Lake which later became known as Lake Sherwood.

The luxury homes in this upscale community are set on large private lots and many have stylish well-appointed amenities making Lake Sherwood popular with celebrities. Many of the activities offered to residents include sailing, fishing, kayaking, picnicking and of course golf and tennis memberships at the country club.

Lake Sherwood is served by the Conejo Valley Unified School District. Students attend the following award-winning California Distinguished and Blue Ribbon schools: Westlake Elementary, Colina Middle School and Westlake High School.
