Welcome to Beverly Hills
Grand mansions, designer brands, and fine dining in the world’s most famous zip code.
Beverly Hills is the epicenter for the famous and the wealthy. Soaring palm trees and luxury estates line immaculate streets. Beverly Hills' real estate options consist of custom-made homes in a range of stunning architectural styles, from Tuscan villas and Spanish Colonial mansions to sleek contemporary estate homes. The Tudor-style, 55-room Greystone Mansion was built by oil-magnate Edward Doheny and has been featured in numerous films, music videos, and TV shows, including “Spider-Man,” “Entourage,” and Van Halen’s “Pretty Woman.”
Beverly Hills is unofficially divided by Santa Monica Boulevard. Beverly Hills luxury homes for sale north of the street are usually grander, especially around Benedict and Coldwater Canyons. This mostly residential area is also more private and quiet. To the south of Santa Monica Boulevard, the streets are bustling with shoppers and tourists. Luxury storefronts line the famous Rodeo Drive, including Rolex and Gucci. The cobblestone walkway at Two Rodeo and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Anderton Court Shops are always crowded. You’ll find perfectly-kept vintage cars and brand-new Ferraris parked on the streets as L.A.’s business elite take their lunches or broker deals at nearby restaurants.
