Welcome to Brentwood, one of L.A.'s most affluent neighborhoods, located on the Westside between Westwood and Santa Monica. Its modern development started in the 1880s and today it boasts one of the lowest population densities in the city, with lush green pastures and coral trees along its main thoroughfare, San Vicente Boulevard.
Overlooked by world-renowned museum, The Getty Center, Brentwood nestles into the foot of the Santa Monica Mountains. Its proximity to high art matches its tendency toward high style, with small collections of boutiques and restaurants speckled throughout. The real estate north of San Vicente boasts some of the finest homes in Los Angeles. You’ll often find paparazzi hanging around outside Brentwood Gardens, a collection of high end boutiques, or Katsuya, the Japanese restaurant designed by Philippe Starck. Like nearby Santa Monica, Brentwood has a temperate climate influenced by marine breezes off the Pacific Ocean. Residents frequently wake to a “marine layer,” a cover of clouds brought in at night which burns off by mid-morning. The topography is generally split into two characters, broadly divided by Sunset Boulevard: the area north of Sunset is defined by ridges and canyons of the Santa Monica Mountains; south of Sunset the area is hilly. Residents enjoy jogging around the Brentwood Country Club, practically a perfect 3-mile loop. On Sunday, Brentwood hosts one of the best farmer’s markets on the Westside, where the locals scoop up local produce. Brentwood Country Mart, at the corner of 26th and San Vicente, is a family favorite, with small shops and over 6 casual dining options, including Sweet Rose Creamery for dessert and Caffe Luxxe, a favorite among coffee aficionados. Brentwood is also home to a few of the top private schools in Los Angeles. All of this makes Brentwood a great place to raise a family.
