Cheviot Hills

Cheviot Hills is a 1.54-square-mile neighborhood of single-family homes located on the Westside of Los Angeles, and is adjacent to Century City, Rancho Park and 20th Century Fox Studios. [1]  Many of the homes in this neighborhood were built in the 1940s and early 1950s and are primarily traditional in style.[2]  Cheviot Hills is known for its friendly, tight-knit group of residents, a low crime rate[3], excellent schools[4], a relatively low density population, and a high median yearly household income.[5]  The neighborhood has two private clubs including the Hillcrest Country Club and the Beverly Hills Country Club.  Cheviot Hills also boasts a wide range of parks and recreation including Cheviot Hills Park, the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center, the Cheviot Hills Tennis Courts and the Rancho Park Golf Course,[6] making it the perfect neighborhood for you and your family.

Rancho Park

Rancho Park is a quaint 0.6-square-mile community situated directly west of Cheviot Hills.  Similar to its neighbor, Rancho Park has a low crime rate and excellent schools[7], making it a great choice in neighborhoods for your family home.  This community has many restaurants and attractions for families including the Rancho Park Golf Course[8], The Apple Pan restaurant, an LA institution since 1947 boasting one of the best banana cream pies out there, and Children’s Book Word[9], one of the best bookstores in L.A. for kids.
