"A quiet block - next to a freeway!"

There are actually three Simonds Streets in Granada Hills - two of which are quiet residential streets hidden away at the very end of neighborhoods. I've lived on the one between Balboa and Louise for some years now, and, if you enjoy a peaceful and friendly neighborhood where everyone seems to be related or best friends, this is definitely the destination.

It is a good street to raise a family, as there is little traffic and many children. It is also a very ethnically diverse block, with a wide range of friendly and caring people who look after their houses and their neighbors.

Although Simonds is very clean and just far enough from major streets, one drawback is the noise of the nearby 118 freeway. If you don't have good windows, this can be very distracting when you are trying to sleep. Also, since the construction of said freeway, the street has been turned into a kind of wind tunnel, which causes blackouts and poor TV reception for those with satellite or cable (in recent months new companies have been coming in with better services, however. Switching from Time Warner Cable to Verizon FIOS has been one of the best decisions we've ever made).

Overall, this is a pleasant, friendly street in a nice middle-class neighborhood, perfect for new families or those wishing to purchase their first house.
