The gentle sound of waterfalls sets the mood at The Lakes at Thousand Oaks, nestled against the western edge of the Santa Monica Mountains.

The 48,000-square-foot development is in many ways the most pristine and beautiful of all of Caruso’s properties, featuring two magnificent lakes, a children’s playground, rose gardens and public spaces spread across its 7.5 acres, featuring native oak trees—some as old as 250 years old—that weren’t disturbed during construction.

The property is directly adjacent to the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center and Performing Arts Plaza, making it a gathering point for the community and central to local redevelopment efforts. Each winter, Ventura County’s only outdoor ice skating rink is erected atop one of the lakes, and ice skating outings have become a new community tradition.
