General Information about Brentwood


Brentwood is an elegant, prestigious and well-established neighborhood offering a lifestyle that Los Angeles residents have aspired to for years. Although recently achieving national fame and notoriety it has always been a neighborhood held in high esteem by Los Angeles residents.

Brentwood is loosely north of Wilshire Boulevard, South of Mulholland Drive, West of the 405 Freeway and east of 26th. Street/ Allenford Road and includes the Westridge Hills and Mandeville Canyon areas as its western-most expanse north of Sunset (see map). It’s rather close proximity to the Ocean makes for a milder climate than other areas of Los Angeles, being cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Homes in Brentwood range in price from roughly the $1,000,000 range up to the multi-million dollar range in the prestigious Brentwood Park neighborhood. The majority of homes in Brentwood however are currently selling from $1,800,000 to $6 million.

Brentwood has always been a marvelous residential neighborhood but it has also recently developed an extensive, well-managed and very popular commercial district featuring fine shopping and restaurants. This area lies primarily on beautiful San Vicente Boulevard, which is a very popular walk street. All of these attributes have changed Brentwood into a “destination place” for people out for an evening.

Brentwood also features the Brentwood Country Club, Brentwood Country Mart, Brentwood Gardens and borders the famous Riviera Country Club. Schools which service the area include Kenter Canyon Elementary, Brentwood Elementary (science magnet), Paul Revere Middle School and Palisades High School.
