Brentwood is an upscale yet low-key neighborhood in the Westside of Los Angeles, California. Originally part of a Mexican land grant, the neighborhood began its modern development in the 1880s. It is the home of seven private and two public schools. Brentwood was part of the Rancho San Vicente y Santa Monica, a Mexican land-grant ranch sold off in pieces by the Sepúlveda family after the Mexican–American War. The district is located at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains, bordered by the San Diego Freeway on the east, Wilshire Boulevard on the south, the Santa Monica city limits on the southwest, the border of Topanga State Park on the west, and Mulholland Drive along the ridgeline of the mountains on the north. Notable attractions include the weekly & renowned Brentwood Farmers’ Market and trendy San Vicente Boulevard (which runs from Wilshire Blvd. all the way to Bundy Dr.) and is home to wonderful shopping, cafes, restaurants and services.
