Brentwood is located in the city’s Westside area. This family-friendly community is affluent and an excellent place to raise children with seven private schools and two public schools.
Brentwood’s modern development commenced in the 1880s. The area where the neighborhood now sits was initially part of a Mexican land grant. Its long and rich history includes having hosted the 1932 Summer Olympics pentathlon, being the site of a tragic 1961 fire, and the place where the murders for which O.J. Simpson was accused transpired. This is a naturally beautiful neighborhood at the bottom of the Santa Monica Mountains. To the north is the ridgeline and Mulholland Drive, to the east is the San Diego Freeway, to the south is Wilshire Boulevard, to the southwest is Santa Monica, and to the west is Topanga State Park.
