With one of the lowest population densities in all of Los Angeles, Brentwood represents the peak of Westside affluent living. Sprawling over 15 square miles of the Santa Monica Mountains, Brentwood is a land of rolling tree-lined streets, exclusive gated communities, and opulent condos within a short driving distance of the beach and just to the west of UCLA.
Among other things, the huge lots of Brentwood offer architectural treasures, including famous homes designed by the likes of Paul R. Williams and Frank Lloyd Wright. Brentwood is also home of the Getty Center, the famous museum campus designed by Richard Meier with breathtaking hilltop views and a public Central Garden designed by Robert Irwin. The nearby Skirball Center offers a multimedia Jewish cultural immersion, including a replica of Noah’s Ark that you can board and walk around in.
Other amenities include the Brentwood Country Club, Brentwood Farmers Market, Will Rogers State Historic Park, and the Barrington Recreation Center. Brentwood Village is a gem of upscale shopping and dining, while Brentwood Country Mart is a hub of commerce dating back to 1948.
The sub-neighborhoods of Brentwood read like a Willy Wonka factory of affluence—from Crestwood Hills, a haven of significant architecture, to Sullivan Canyon, heaven for horse lovers with its stables and horse trails. Brentwood Glen is a pocket of small-tract single-family homes to provide a more affordable option among mansions in a variety of styles, ranging from ultra-modern to classic—Mid-Century Modern, French Provincial, Spanish Colonial, Mediterranean, Ranch, Farmhouse, East-Coast Traditional, and more. Median list prices are just south of $3 million, at roughly $1,100 per square foot.
Get high enough into the hills and face the right direction, and behold—sunset over the Pacific Ocean, just four miles away. Sip a cold drink on your patio and enjoy the good life—it’s all possible in Brentwood.
