Drawn by the seclusion and high-performing schools, actors, athletes and other A-listers have flocked to Calabasas and surrounding communities over the years. The city of 23,000 is built for privacy, far beyond the reach of any celebrity tour bus and unplotted by most star maps. About 40% of the homes are hidden behind guarded gates, and the priciest are protected behind a second set of gates opened only by car-mounted transponder. Regular residents and their celebrity neighbors, for the most part, have coexisted in peace - that is, until Justin Bieber came to town last year.
