Brentwood is a community steeped in beauty. From the graceful curves of the Santa Monica Mountains to the manicured lawns of the Brentwood Country Club, it’s a place where many high-profile neighbors can blend in easily with the scenery—and what scenery!—while still enjoying the matchless culture and conveniences of Los Angeles’s Westside.
The neighborhood offers a lifestyle of your choosing, and exceptionally diverse housing options to match. Hillside estates with glittering views of city lights and the Pacific Ocean. Canyon homes shaded by towering sycamores. Ranch-style dwellings that unite indoor and outdoor living. Stylish condos walkable to the neighborhood’s upscale boutiques, sidewalk cafes, and numerous other attractions.
San Vicente Boulevard is Brentwood’s main thoroughfare, notable for the vibrant coral trees enlivening its center divider. (In fact, they have designated a Los Angeles cultural-historical monument in 1976.)Brunch at the appropriately-named Coral Tree Café, or head to Farmshop at the Brentwood Country Mart—a neighborhood favorite—and pick up some artisanal goodies. As the sun sets, dine at Baltaire Restaurant for world-class steaks, Nagao for impossibly fresh sushi, or Bar Toscana for Italian bites and unique craft cocktails.
Brentwood’s crowning glory is the Getty Center, with its world-renowned collections of European art and verdant Central Garden, while the Skirball Cultural Center is an educational institute devoted to Jewish heritage and American multiculturalism. Minutes from Beverly Hills, the San Fernando Valley, and Santa Monica, Brentwood is also convenient to the 405 freeway, the Pacific Coast Highway, and even LAX international airport. But with a home base this beautiful, you’ll probably want to stick around.
