Fryman Canyon Estates


Privacy, serenity, celebrities, views

Fryman Estates in the Studio City Hills is a prestigious, woodsy area bordered by the Silver Triangle­ on the north, the Tree People park on the west, The Donas on the east, Mulholland Boulevard on the south.

The neighborhood is named after beloved the Fryman Canyon, a sprawling 122 acres of magnificent trees, trails and views on the SF Valley (northern) side of the Santa Monica Mountains—true wilderness in your own back yard that can make you forget you're in Los Angeles.

Located "South of the Boulevard," Fryman Estates is one of the most exclusive and expensive areas of Studio City, with stately homes on large lots (up to 20,000 SF) that sell for $2 to $10 million, such as Reality TV's not-too-shabby Kardashian mansion.

Fryman residents love the quiet country feel, mature trees and California oaks, proximity to nature walks and dog parks, and exotic local denizens ranging from mule deer and coyotes to seven different species of hawks and an occasional mountain lion.

The area is a natural retreat for movie stars and TV celebrities as well, who value its privacy, elegance and convenience—with many homes in walking distance to the shopping and dining delights of Ventura Boulevard. The fact that virtually all Fryman homes fall within the Carpenter Community Charter School district (an elementary school state-rated 10 out of 10) is an added bonus. (See Carpenter District Boundary Map to confirm specific homes).

So-called Fryman Canyon is actually Wilacre Park, and has a popular 2.5 mile walk/jog/hike trail that is favored by celebrities (do not feed). The trail loops all the way back to where it begins, and includes incredible views of San Fernando Valley. The Betty B. Dearing Cross Mountain Trail connects this area a;; the way to Franklin Canyon and Coldwater Canyon Park. Where to begin? Park at Laurel Canyon Blvd. and Fryman ($3.00), or for free on Laurel Canyon, but note—trail entrances on residential streets require permits to park! But check out these lesser known entrances that lead to amazing views: Mulholland Drive at Allenwood Road, Valleycrest Drive and Mulholland Terrace, and on Summit Circle.
