LIVING IN BRENTWOOD

Similar to its Southern LA counterparts, Brentwood is also an affluent neighborhood but located on the Westside of LA. In this particular neighborhood, you can expect to see a nice mix of homes ranging from traditional style homes to expensive mansions as well as reasonably priced apartments. Ultimately, Brentwood is the ideal neighborhood if you’re wanting to live in a quaint residential area.


Because of its tree-lined sidewalks, parks, nearby beaches, and dining options, Brentwood is considered by many as one of the best neighborhoods for newcomers to live in. UCLA is also in close proximity to the neighborhood, making it very common to see UCLA students studying in the parks and various cafes. It’s also not uncommon to see tourists in the area taking pictures of the area’s many attractions.


Looking at the population and demographics of the area, it’s safe to say that Brentwood isn’t as culturally diverse as some of its neighboring southern communities, nonetheless, the neighborhood still has a variety of residents. One demographic in particular are the millennials. In fact, the diverse businesses, coffee shops, and the option to put avocados on anything are partly what makes Brentwood the “millennial magnet” that it is today.


But like other neighborhoods in LA, Brentwood is one that once you experience it, you’ll immediately fall in love with it. Why? Because it’s a neighborhood for every kind of person who enjoys having fun of all proportions. There are a few key characteristics that make the Brentwood community the go-to destination where everyone wants to live.


  • Brentwood is one of the top dining destinations in West LA. It is here where you’ll find a wide array of health-conscious restaurants, dessert eateries, and coffee shops. Residents enjoy food ranging from fine dining and sandwich shops to dive bars and international cuisines. For the ultimate “foodie” experience, Brentwood is the place you want to live.
  • Brentwood is a neighborhood in close proximity to some of LA’s most popular beaches. Venice Beach, Malibu Beach, and Santa Monica Beach are all beaches near the Brentwood neighborhood that locals frequent quite often. And the best part about it is that Brentwood is the prime location for access to these beaches, allowing residents a speedy commute of fewer than 30 minutes. Because of its close proximity to the beach and numerous parks, it also gives way to many outdoor fitness activities as well.
  • Brentwood is very family-friendly. Because Brentwood is filled with so many attractions, shopping destinations, parks, and schools, it’s been an appealing neighborhood for homebuyers with children. In fact, more than 80% of the Brentwood population is married, and out of that 80% of the married population, 50% of that population has children under the age of 18. Rightfully so, Brentwood has been dubbed as the perfect place to start and raise a family, and it’s impeccable schools just make families flock to the area even more.


The above are just a few of the biggest reasons why the Brentwood neighborhood has buyers traveling from all over to live there. But to truly understand the beauty of the neighborhood, consider getting to know the neighborhood. Take a look at some of Brentwood’s biggest attractions and see why it’s one of LA’s top places to live.
