Welcome to Brentwood CA

A hip, upscale neighborhood near major state parks
 
Brentwood sits to the southeast of Westridge Canyonback Wilderness Park and east of Will Rogers State Historic Park. These parks dwell within the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, a national park with state parks boasting over 500 miles of hiking trails and state beaches along the Pacific Ocean. Residents love being a 15-minute drive to Santa Monica Pier, a 25-minute drive to Los Angeles International Airport, and a 20-minute drive to Downtown Los Angeles. It is a family-friendly neighborhood with tree-lined residential streets and direct access to Tigertail and Kenter Trailheads. It is a great neighborhood for leisurely strolls around the block or local hiking.
 
San Vicente Blvd. is bustling with boutique retail shops, fine dining establishments, and cafes serving single-origin coffees like Blue Bottle Coffee. Brentwood homes range in style, but many are classic Spanish Colonial or modern-styled mansions. Residents and tourists alike are drawn to Brentwood for its famous history of being Marilyn Monroe’s final home. Banks Mansion (where the Fresh Prince of Bel Air was filmed) is also in Brentwood, as well as the house where The Golden Girls was filmed.
 
Brentwood residents enjoy small bites at one of the local cafes after a refreshing hike, a day of golfing, swimming, or tennis at Brentwood Country Club, or a thoughtfully crafted cocktail with friends at S Bar. Brentwood is the perfect neighborhood for residents desiring an upscale community with chic cafes and bars to meet their social appetites, but also the wholesome vibe of living close to major state parks and hiking trails.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Wine Bar offers a brunch, lunch, dinner, and wine bar menu with organic and sustainable wines. Baltaire Restaurant is an upscale steakhouse and raw bar with appetizers like charred Spanish octopus served with salsa verde and pepperonata or entrees like their 20 oz dry-aged bone-in ribeye that can be served with additions like black truffle butter, au poivre, or king crab oscar.
 
A Votre Santé serves Mediterranean cuisine, a favorite among local vegetarians, though free-range poultry dishes and sustainably harvested seafood dishes are also served. Katsuya serves fresh sushi and bright cocktails.
