One of the most affluent neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Brentwood is a charming mix of luxurious living, beautiful sceneries that combine lush landscaping with contemporary architectural details, rich culture and fine dining –all imbued with a laidback suburban feel. Here’s why Brentwood is at the top of our “favorites” list.  

Dining Pleasures

From fresh sushi to gourmet chocolate, you can always satisfy your indulgences in Brentwood. In the mood for the freshest clams, albacore and other delectable seafood artfully prepared for you? Chef Nobi Kushnar puts the luxury in sushi-eating at Sushi Sasabune where adventurous diners can partake in an “Omakase” meal where all dishes served are the chef’s picks. And for your sweet tooth, head over to Lady Chocolatt –a unique chocolate boutique where you can treat yourself to rich, handcrafted Belgian chocolates. Enjoy a warm cup of house-made hot cocoa or get a box of luscious truffles to go.

Cultural Heritage

The Getty Center is an architectural and botanical beauty designed by renowned Architect Richard Meier. The 24-acre campus features breathtaking views accessed by a three-car hovertrain. Take a museum tour and enjoy viewing the collections of European art, as well as Asian and American photography. Then revel in the beautiful sites with a relaxing picnic on the lawn adjacent to the charming Central Garden.

Beautiful Homes

No wonder why many of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities have chosen to call Brentwood their home. Brentwood offers a modern refuge amidst a busy world. The gorgeous architectural designs are a mix of Cape Cod, Spanish Revival and Tudor styles. Details such as roof tiling, arched doorways, iron and wood details, stucco exteriors and unique lighting treatments turn the homes into treasured living spaces.  Houses also put a premium on indoor and outdoor living –the signature style of California life. The well-manicured landscapes and spacious courtyards are perfect for families too.
