Cheviot Hills is an affluent neighborhood on the Westside region of Los Angeles consisting of approximately 1,400 single-family homes. Neighboring communities are Beverly Hills, Beverlywood, Century City, Palms, Pico-Robertson, Rancho Park and West Los Angeles.
Developed in the 1920s, the neighborhood takes its name from the Cheviot Hills range lying between England and Scotland. Originally middle class, home prices have increased dramatically in recent years and now rival those of neighboring Beverly Hills, Bel Air, and Holmby Hills, resulting in a surge of new development. Cheviot Hills was named Redfin’s “hottest” neighborhood in the country for real estate for 2014, and the “hottest” neighborhood in Los Angeles for 2015.
It is located near Beverly Hills, Westwood and Century City, in close proximity to recreation, shopping, cultural and major employment centers, and thanks to its convenient location between Fox Studios and Sony Studios the neighborhood has long been home to many actors, television personalities, and studio executives and has been the filming location of countless movies and television shows. Examples range from Laurel and Hardy films of the 1920s to Claire and Phil Dunphy’s residence on ABC’s hit show, “Modern Family.”
The Cheviot Hills Home Owners’ Association is a non-profit, incorporated association whose purpose is to promote and maintain the quality of life in Cheviot Hills for the benefit of all who live here and to foster and encourage a spirit of good will among its members. The neighborhood is home to several parks and multiple country clubs.
