Just to the south of Beverly Hills lies a neighborhood with a little less prestige but a lot to love. Beverlywood was actually a part of Beverly Hills until it broke off in 1940 as its own community. Today, just over 6,000 people occupy this small, centrally-located piece of Los Angeles, less than a square mile and easy to walk or bike around.
The 1,354 single-family homes in Beverlywood fall under one of the oldest homeowner’s associations, the Beverlywood Homes Association. The association enforced one of the first slates of binding CC&Rs, which placed early limits on the size, color, and landscaping of the homes built in Beverlywood, fostering an environment of harmony and architectural unity.
These CC&Rs are still in place, but Beverlywood is currently a focal point for “mansionization,” the process of tearing down older houses and building the largest house allowed by laws and regulations. The result is a variety of home sizes and prices. These houses retain the vibe and feel of old Beverlywood, but stocking the streets with massive mansions definitely changes the character of the neighborhood a little.
With its mix of large and small houses so close to Beverly Hills, Beverlywood boasts median listing prices just south of $2.8 million, but with prices per square foot a little lower at just north of $900 per square foot.
Largely residential with single-family homes and good schools, Beverlywood has a lot to offer. Pico and Robertson are quaint shopping and dining districts an easy walk or bike ride from any home in Beverlywood. Nearby offerings include bakeries, sushi bars, delis, grocery stores, houses of worship, and small businesses. The Robertson Branch Library is close by as well. To the west, Beverlywood borders Hillcrest Country Club and, just beyond, Cheviot Hills Park and Recreation Center.
