A suburban oasis full of rolling hills and beautiful parks
This affluent suburb is full of celebrities and rolling hills. There’s no shortage of greenery and beautiful public spaces, and the whole community has a peaceful atmosphere. Brentwood is a life of luxury intertwined with affluent suburbia.
Brentwood was a small village surrounded by farms until the middle of the 20th Century. It was the home to clubs and casinos during the Great Depression, after which it became a more affluent neighborhood. Since it was incorporated in 1969, it has grown into a wealthy, suburban paradise.
The homes here are incomparable. As one of the wealthiest cities in the country, the stately residences live up to the city’s reputation by being spacious and jaw-dropping. Though these expansive homes are the jewels in Brentwood’s crown, there are cozier single-family homes as well as lofts and condos that are well worth your time.
