Welcome to Brentwood
Los Angeles’ tranquil, mountain-adjacent escape
Set at the base of the easternmost part of the Santa Monica Mountains, Brentwood is among the most luxurious neighborhoods in Los Angeles and is near other premier communities, like the Pacific Palisades and Bel-Air. Brentwood is home to dozens of key Los Angeles landmarks. Major Brentwood attractions include the famous Getty art museum, as well as the Banks Mansion, known for being the main setting for the popular 90s sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In addition to its cultural appeal, Brentwood offers easy access to dozens of first-rate hiking trails in and around the Santa Monica Mountains. For beach enthusiasts, Brentwood is just a few miles from five-star beaches in nearby Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades.
In terms of dining, shopping, and nightlife, Brentwood’s best quality might be its proximity to Santa Monica. While Brentwood Country Mart, San Vicente Blvd, and Brentwood Village offer some solid dining and shopping options, Santa Monica’s Montana Ave, Santa Monica Blvd, and Santa Monica pier have much more to offer foodies. Brentwood’s residential areas are beautiful, with spectacular homes offering magnificent views of the surrounding Santa Monica Mountains, Brentwood.
