Welcome to Cheviot Hills

Worlds away, yet perfectly positioned at the center of it all.
A quiet neighborhood consisting of primarily single-family homes, Cheviot Hills has been featured in many of Hollywood’s iconic films depicting the quintessential American neighborhood. Perfectly positioned between many large movie production studios, Cheviot Hills is located adjacent to a large park, golf courses, and other green spaces offering plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation in the midst of the big city. While still situated close to shopping, dining, and major freeways, Cheviot Hills remains largely residential and peaceful, perfect for those seeking a quiet refuge from city life.
Now home to some of the best-known names in showbiz, Cheviot Hills remained largely untouched until the 1920s. Many homes in the neighborhood resemble classic Spanish-inspired architecture, while new construction has brought in modern trends to blend with styles from a forgotten era. Mature, lush trees line the streets, homes are positioned atop rolling, green lawns, and understated elegance awaits around every corner.

Local Lifestyle

A life lived in Cheviot Hills is one of peace, solitude, and tranquility. This quiet neighborhood is conveniently located close to everything special in Los Angeles, yet feels as if it is worlds away. Just beyond neighborhood boundaries, a number of dining options, both upscale and casual, can be found, along with parks, gardens, and museums. Located immediately within the neighborhood, Cheviot Hills Park and Recreation Center offers an abundance of outdoor activities to enjoy LA’s excellent 330 days of sunshine per year.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

This unsuspecting neighborhood is actually a surprising culinary hotspot, home to a wide variety of cuisine from across the globe. Shopping and other entertainment options are just blocks away from home, making nights spent away from home a frequent treat.

Upscale Japanese tasting menus in a sharp and sleek setting are the specialty of n/nake. The philosophy that a great meal consists of several perfectly executed details is the focus of this two Michelin-starred establishment, one of only five restaurants in Los Angeles to receive this prestigious rating. A thirteen-course omakase tasting (literally translating to, “I leave it up to you”) is preselected by the chef for a once-in-a-lifetime dining experience.
Japanese heritage and French technique meet at Hinoki & the Bird. A similar dining room welcomes guests in to enjoy modern American cuisine created with the finest Japanese ingredients. Chili crab toast, miso-marinated skirt steak, and green curry lobster rolls are a few of the sumptuous dishes locals keep coming back to time and time again.
Part marketplace, food court, and cooking school, Eataly is one of LA’s most popular spots to get inspired and pick up specialty pantry staples to elevate even the most simple of meals. Freshly butchered meats, Italian espresso, authentic sauces, and handmade pasta are just a few of the items available to take home for those feeling extra inspired after attending one of the marketplace’s many immersive classes. Eataly also boasts two restaurants inside their 67,000-square-foot space.
