Brentwood lies in the heart of the Westside of Los Angeles, burrowed in the slopes of the Santa Monica Mountains. It is just far enough from the bustle of the city while being close enough to the beach and with Hollywood just around the corner. An idyllic destination, Brentwood’s main streets are San Vicente Boulevard, Wilshire Boulevard, and Sunset Boulevard.
A sanctuary for its residents—who range from high-profile individuals and Hollywood A-listers to affluent families and UCLA students and faculty— Brentwood is a microcosm of Los Angeles culture. Neighborhoods within Brentwood include Brentwood Park, Brentwood Country Estates, Brentwood Circle, Brentwood Glen, Crestwood Hills, Mandeville Canyon, and Kenter Canyon. Brentwood real estate features an array of mid-century modern, Spanish Revival, Cape Cod, and Tudor-style homes.
Residents and tourists can find the area to be quite commercially driven, with its high-end boutiques and trendy restaurants, but it offers the utmost privacy as well. The area has the perfect blend of suburban comforts, a luxurious yet relaxed lifestyle, and a surprisingly hip vibe. When the neighborhood was developed at the turn of the century, it hosted several of the 1932 Olympic games. Rich in Hollywood history, Brentwood is now home to sprawling upscale single-family residences with impeccably manicured lawns, the Getty Center, and several hiking trails.
