Brentwood is one of L.A.'s most affluent neighborhoods, located on the Westside between Westwood and Santa Monica. Brentwood began as a Mexican land grant ranch sold off by the Sepulveda family.  Modern development of Brentwood began in the 1880s.  Due to its high homes prices, Brentwood boasts one of the lowest population density districts in the city of Los Angeles.

Brentwood home to one of the world's most well known art collections at the Getty Center, a $1.3 billion project is built of travertine and known for its architectural gardens and scenic view of the city. In the business district, locals can be found shopping daily at Whole Foods and at the Farmer's Market on Sundays.

It is bordered to the north by Mulholland Drive and Wilshire Blvd to the south. 

Bel Air borders the east and Mandeville Canyon to the west.  The Mountaingate Estates, situated above the Santa Monica Mountains, is known for its expansive views of the city and the ocean. Notable enclaves include Brentwood Park, Brentwood Heights and Westgate.
