The affluent neighborhood of Brentwood is located in western Los Angeles. It borders Topanga State Park and Mulholland Drive runs north of Brentwood. Surrounding communities include Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, Westwood, Bel Air and Encino.
The community of Brentwood has become one of the most prominent areas of Los Angeles’ Westside. With easy access to high-end shopping, exceptional dining and the beach, it is no wonder why notable residents such as Jim Carrey, Steven Spielberg, Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen, Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver, John Travolta and Reese Witherspoon have all called Brentwood home.
