The adorable community enclave of Brentwood Village is only a skip and a jump away. Restaurants, coffee shops, hair salons, and clothing stores adorn the streets for Brentwood residents as they seek wares and fares from their favorite independent merchants. If you’ve ever seen the classic film “Strangers When We Meet”, starring the fabulous Kirk Douglas and Kim Novak, you’ve seen Brentwood Village and one of its oldest establishments, Brentwood Village Market.
The area was once part of the Rancho San Vicente y Santa Monica, a Spanish land-grant ranch sold off in pieces by the Sepulveda family after the Mexican-American War. Originally planted with soybeans and avocados, Brentwood is now one of the most prominent and wealthy neighborhoods in Southern California.
