Welcome to Brentwood
The illustrious neighborhood just west of UCLA brims with gorgeous SoCal scenery and enviable multi-million-dollar mansions
Upscale to its core, Brentwood is considered lavish for more than just its affluent residents and dazzling estates. The neighborhood is rich in nature and beauty, with secluded hillside homes pressed high into the foothills. Home to the Getty, the Skirball Cultural Center and a slew of niche, upscale boutiques and restaurants, Brentwood remains firmly planted in the exciting culture of LA, without the high pace and density of its more urban neighborhoods.
Brentwood sits snug between Bel-Air and the vast wilderness of Topanga State Park and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. This location brings easy convenience to quiet, country living, and gives residents the freedom to maintain an outdoor, active, health-oriented lifestyle thanks to plenty of trails and outdoor space.
Brentwood’s “in-town” area is populated with sophisticated condos and luxurious apartments, all less than a block from an exciting selection of shopping and dining. The community is more famous, however, for its palatial estates that blend into local forested slopes. Show-stopping views of both the Pacific Ocean and the city are just one facet of the appeal for these mansions, whose styles span historic, French Country estates to mid-century marvels and opulent contemporary new-builds.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Sunset and San Vicente boulevards and Montana Avenue are considered the main arteries of Brentwood for commercial activity, and along its busy, exclusive pathways, visitors will encounter everything from chic local coffee and tea shops to trendy boutiques and lifestyle services. After a day spent luxuriating in the great outdoors or eucalyptus-scented rooms of detox saunas, a plethora of restaurants await residents.
Things to Do
Besides numerous museums minutes from Brentwood, the community also features its own opulent country club and golf course, the Brentwood Country Club. Members can play a round of golf with others on the fairways, play a tennis match on the courts or take the night off from recreation and participate in one of the many events on the club’s weekly social calendar.
Traditions are a treasure in all of Brentwood, and another pillar of the community is the Brentwood Farmers Market, where locals can browse the best of fresh produce and goods.
