A truly magical 4240 square foot estate built by the Sherwood Development Company in the heart of the charismatic neighborhood of Thistlebery behind the guard-gated estates of exclusive Sherwood Country Club. The property spans nearly 1 acre amid the beautiful Santa Monica Mountain range overlooking the oldest, scenic, made man made lake in California, Lake Sherwood.

158 Upper Lake Road is accessed through one of the two Sherwood gates off of Potrero Road. Potrero Road is the main artery that winds East/West through the scenic Hidden Valley. It is the first intersection you reach when exiting the historic Decker Canyon Road from the beaches of Malibu or the Canyons of the Santa Monica Mountain wilderness areas.

Once past the Stafford Gate, you veer left on Stafford Road along the glistening perimeter of Lake Sherwood toward Thistlebery. The short drive to Upper Lake Road is bundled with views of Southern California’s most stately and artisan crafted lakeside estates. Each are neatly and somewhat ‘mysteriously’ tucked into the mountainside. After you pass the first 3-way stop sign at the appropriately named Lower Lake Road, you intersect with Upper Lake Road, where you take a left. Immediately traveling up Upper Lake Road, you are overwhelmed by the private, humble and ‘yesteryear’ charm that is Old Sherwood—Thistlebery.
