Studio City Realtor Nicole Costas recommends…
History, large lots, Tujunga Village
Colfax Meadows is a beautiful, residential part of the Studio City "Flats" located north of Ventura Blvd. and the L.A. River and south of Moorpark Street, east of Colfax Avenue, and west of Tujunga Avenue. Named one of Los Angeles Magazine's 10 Best Neighborhoods You've Never Heard Of, Colfax Meadows is one of Studio City's oldest neighborhoods—and now one of the most popular and established neighborhoods.
Colfax Meadows was first developed in the 1920s. It was named for Schuyler Colfax, Vice President of the U.S. under President Ulysses S. Grant. People bought here for the large lots and the recognition that this was a great place for multi-generational families. In the 1930s, Republic Pictures (now the CBS Studio Center) attracted Hollywood stars and entertainment professionals to the area, and some Colfax Meadows families have remained in those homes ever since. The flat areas of Colfax Meadows are popular because of these historic homes dating back to the 1920's, and because of the large lots they sit on, lots that vary in size from an average size of 6,750 SF to over an acre.
Part of Colfax Meadows' appeal is its proximity to Tujunga Village, the charming row of boutiques, funky-hip coffee and gelato bars, and eclectic mom-and-pop shops on the lovely block between Moorpark and Woodbridge on Tujunga Avenue.
Colfax Meadows is a friendly neighborhood, too. There are no through streets to the river, which limits traffic, and pockets of greenery off the river make walking pleasant, which is why Colfax Meadows is "ground zero" on Halloween, a safe and popular place for kids to trick or treat.
The subdivision of Colfax Meadows has 893 homes. Colfax Meadows is completely within the award-winning Carpenter Community Charter School district, another major selling point, which keeps rents and home prices high throughout all of Studio City.
