Brentwood Circle, luxurious gated community
Brentwood Circle is a beautiful, 24-hour, guard-gated community of 67 luxurious homes, north of Sunset Boulevard, within close distance to Brentwood Village, a quaint shopping area featuring fine restaurants, shops, offices, beautiful parks and a post office.
What makes Brentwood Circle unique is that it has the prestigious, world-famous Getty Center as its neighbor to the north. And with that, a bit of trivia and history: When the Getty Trust decided to build on their incredible property in Sepulveda Pass in the 1980s, one of their emergency access roads to their property was through the Brentwood Circle neighborhood. This presented challenges for both neighbors, and to resolve the issue the Getty Center helped facilitate the construction of a private gate to control access to both the community and the Getty. Today, Brentwood Circle has a 24-hour guarded main entrance, augmented by two other exit-only gates within the community.
Brentwood Circle is a unique enclave in many ways…it has a relatively small number of homes for a private community which naturally brings neighbors together on special occasions…and in the past the community purchased two-foot cast iron bells that they would display during the holidays, (only a few remain, however) and more importantly, there is little turnover of homeowners because residents love the uniqueness of Brentwood Circle and the privacy it provides.
