Newbury Park is the western-most community in the greater Thousand Oaks area and abuts the Santa Monica National Recreation area so folks come from miles around to enjoy the fabulous parklands that stretch all the way to the coast.
Egbert Starr Newbury owned thousands of acres in the 1870’s and gave the name to the community as well as was the first postmaster in the Conejo Valley in 1875.
The majority of the single-family development occurred in the 1950’s -1970’s in Newbury Park. In recent years, the largest undeveloped parcel became the Dos Vientos Ranch, with homes prized for their Spanish architecture, innovative design, and ideal location with cherished breezes from the Pacific Ocean.
They say the weather is cooler than in the valleys, and a good place to get a view is from Monte Vista Nature Park.
