Brentwood is nestled in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. Some of the homes have commanding views of the city, stretching from Beverly Hills to Malibu and the Pacific Ocean. Home to many celebrities in entertainment, media and the corporate world, Brentwood is adjacent to thriving Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades to the West and Westwood and Century City to the East.
Noted for its small-town, country-like atmosphere, Brentwood features a wonderful neighborhood of shops, fine restaurants, and an active lifestyle of sports enthusiasts who jog up and down beautiful San Vicente Boulevard in the meridian to nearby Santa Monica Beach.
What makes the various Brentwood neighborhoods so charming are its tree-lined streets and magnificent homes. Many streets, for example, do not have sidewalks. There truly is a country feeling, a sophisticated casualness about the community. But Brentwood residents are full of pride and very protective of their community and lifestyle.
The community’s larger homes and estates are usually found north of San Vicente or world famous Sunset Boulevard along streets that meander up to the foothills and through the canyons of the Santa Monica Mountains. Upscale apartments populate the area south of San Vicente, intermingled with shops and restaurants.
Brentwood is also home to several, highly rated private schools – The Brentwood School and Archer School for Girls, two the most prestigious schools in California, plus the community features one of the finest public education systems within the city.
