Nestled at the eastern foot of the Santa Monica Mountains, LA’s Brentwood also borders the prestigious neighborhood of Bel Air and cities of Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades. Brentwood is not only one of the Los Angeles area’s most affluent neighborhoods, its residents are some of the city’s most highly educated. Of its approximately 33,000 population, more than two-thirds hold college degrees while over half have graduate or professional degrees. Its academic, business and professional residents share their privileged corner of LA with students from nearby St. Mary’s College and UCLA, as well as with a “Who’s Who” of celebrities and power-brokers from the entertainment industry.

Brentwood’s bustling commercial district — lined with luxury multi-story condominium structures as well as luxury boutiques, fine dining establishments and salons — spans San Vicente, Wilshire and Sunset Boulevards. Beyond the business core are upscale neighborhoods and gated enclaves offering a variety of single-family homes and world-class estates.

Services, Cultural and Social Activities

Brentwood offers a plethora of schools, cultural and social activities. Nine public schools and 15 private schools are either in the neighborhood, or are nearby and serve the community. The internationally-renowned Getty Center, one of the world’s major museums, rests on a hill overlooking Brentwood and the entire LA Basin. Its sister location, the Getty Villa, is located in nearby Pacific Palisades. The Skirball Museum, a part of the Skirball Cultural Center and dedicated to the accomplishments, culture and history of the Jewish people in the United States, is also located in the community. Brentwood Country Mart, Brentwood Village, and the Brentwood Green are popular shopping and socializing spots, as is a much-loved Sunday Farmers’ Market. The public Crestwood Hills Park offers a community room, basketball courts, a children’s play area and picnic tables, while the larger Barrington Recreation Center provides a community center, tennis courts, soccer fields, baseball diamonds and a dog park. Mountain bikers and hikers have access to the nearby fire roads in the Santa Monica Mountains.
