Welcome to Brentwood
Sophistication mixes with small-town sensibility in one of LA’s most elegant neighborhoods
Opulent estates perched atop the hills of Los Angeles. Majestic palm trees basking in the golden California sunshine. A storied past glittering with film stars. Brentwood is one of LA’s most prestigious communities. Effortless elegance and Golden Age glamor define this illustrious enclave, which once claimed Tinseltown icons like Marilyn Monroe and Joan Crawford as residents. Originally owned by the prominent Sepulveda family, parcels of Brentwood land were sold off in the mid-1800s, after the Mexican-American war. By the 1880s, glimmers of the stylish town of the future began to shine through.
Today, families flock to Brentwood for its sprawling yards, quiet, leafy streets, and community-focused atmosphere – and, of course, Brentwood’s stunning real estate. While the neighborhood sports a quaint, nostalgic feel, homes here are stately and grand, ranging from clean, modernist styles to vintage, art deco designs that harken back to the days of Old Hollywood.
