The Brentwood Mystique
Located within a few miles of the Pacific Ocean, Brentwood enjoys a milder climate than the interior parts of Los Angeles. Many of its residents can be found running the five mile stretch of San Vicente Boulevard to the ocean and back.
Brentwood homes offer a variety of architectural styles and mostly single-family homes, and large parcels of land on which to spread out. Prices for homes in Bentwood can reach over $20 million. Several condominiums make Brentwood more affordable.
Brentwood public schools are rated highly.
Shops in Brentwood are quaint and stylish, giving the area a small town feel. Fine dining is abundant in Brentwood. It hosts a plethora of Italian restaurants.
Perhaps the biggest challenge that faces Brentwood is the traffic around the 405 Freeway. This area can be especially congested on both sides of the freeway at heavy commute hours.
Brentwood, with its understated elegance, should be high on your list of places to consider buying a home.
