Downtown Disrict

Young Professionals/DINKs

Downtown Burbank has exploded in terms of things to do and places to live for those who want to be amidst the social scene of the city. The Burbank Town Center is the center of the action Downtown and offers an amusement center, gaming space, bowling/billiards/ping pong/darts/karaoke, tons of movie screens, and 20 or so dining options. Outside the Center are dozens and dozens of upscale and casual restaurants, bars and cafes for more boutique experiences.

The neighborhood has plenty of condo and apartment buildings integrated into and amidst the retail so expect a short walk to anything you're looking to do at night or on weekends.

Magnolia Park

Families/Young Professionals/DINKs

A colorful and quirky neighborhood, with annual events such as “Ladies and Gentlemen’s Night Out” and “Holiday in the Park”, if you’re a creative, artsy, or otherwise nerdy person with a passion for vintage aesthetics, boutique shopping, and great walkability, this could be your new home.

The streets are lined with trees and quaint, classic Los Angeles cottage homes that have a median price of $1.1m. Many of these homes are a short walk to the cities main thoroughfare, Magnolia Blvd. It's the street that makes Burbank a different place than other LA area cities and is the heart of the community.

The neighborhood does also have plenty of apartment and condo options that surround the Magnolia Blvd commercial district so for young professionals and couples the neighborhood is an option.

Burbank Hills


Burbank Hills is a luxury, gated community, with private estates and palatial homes. These homes sit on the hills of Burbank and as such offer stunning views of the lights of Los Angeles. The hills have a true countryside vibe and deer and even coyotes at times can be found among the massive trees and open green spaces. Amidst the hills are several private tennis courts and lots of open green spaces for walking and hiking. Homes are typically listed well above $3m and do not come up for sale very often. If you can get in here the life is quite nice.

Rancho Equestrian District


Right between [Griffith Park](https://www.laparks.org/griffithpark/ and the Los Angeles Equestrian Center is the Rancho Equestrian District. It's a horse heaven and shockingly is right near Los Angeles. The Equestrian Center is a buzzing hive of horse shows, polo matches and lessons for those looking to learn to ride. The neighborhood itself is lined with magnificent trees and some of Burbank's most charming homes. The median home price in the Rancho District is $1.15m. It's important to remember if considering this area, that the primary goal of The Rancho, is to protect horsekeeping properties and prevent land use that doesn't support the equestrian nature of the neighborhood. If you're thinking you'll buy here and do something crazy with your land or home, think twice.

Chandler Park


Chandler Park is filled with single-family homes that are listed at a median home price of $1.1m. The homes are a mix of older 3 bedroom cottages and newer construction, modern 4+ bedroom homes. Chandler Park is a strong community suburb with an outstanding outdoor activity culture. It has miles of trails for bikers and runners (or just strollers) and is considered an ideal neighborhood for raising a family.

While there are plenty of parks (not shocking given the neighborhood name), outdoor culture here is most notable for the Chandler Bikeway a beautiful three-mile corridor with orange and lemon trees, and manicured grounds lining the path throughout Burbank and into North Hollywood. Bikers and pedestrians have their own lanes and the Bikeway is for sure a highlight of the community.
