Westwood is a safe and centrally located neighborhood that is bordered by Century City to the east, Bel Air to the north and Brentwood to the west.  It spans east of Sepulveda, west of Beverly Glen, north of Pico and south of Sunset.   The homes in Westwood are very charming, most of them traditional in style.  Residents who live in this neighborhood treasure Westwood’s sense of community, residential streets with sidewalks and ability to walk into the village. To the east of the village is the “Little Holmby” area offering tranquility, wide and tree-lined streets with larger lots, stately residences and the highly commended University Elementary and Warner Avenue Elementary Schools.

At the epicenter of the neighborhood is Westwood Village, which provides an array of fabulous restaurants, nightlife, and most notably movie theatres, all within walking distance.  Hollywood movie premieres are held frequently in these vintage theatres and have contributed to the village’s history.  Some known theatres include the Mann Village and Bruin Theatres.  Furthermore, UCLA, positioned just north of the village, enables students to enjoy the convenience of the amenities the village provides.

South of the village on Wilshire, spanning east of Westwood Boulevard and west of Comstock is the “Wilshire Corridor,” a stretch of high rise, full service condominium buildings where residents enjoy breathtaking views of the city and a luxurious lifestyle.  Premier buildings include The Californian, The Carlyle, Blair House, The Remington, Le Tour and soon-to-come Beverly West.  Several celebrated office buildings located on Wilshire Boulevard such as the Murdock and the Oppenheimer buildings enhance the surroundings. Other landmarks include the Hammer Museum, Geffen Theatre, UCLA Freud Playhouse and UCLA’s famed Royce Hall. Visit the newer upscale W Hotel or walk to fine dining restaurants such as Palomino or Napa Valley Grille.

Just east of Westwood, south of Wilshire lies Century City, home to high rises, gated communities, Fox Studios, newly redone Westfield Mall and a plethora of established businesses.  Century City has become increasingly desirable given the emergence of new luxury condominium buildings like The Century and avant-garde architectural buildings like 2000 Avenue of the Stars, formally the Shubert theatre and now home to Creative Artists Agency, the Annenberg Space for Photography among other attractions.  This area offers other upscale condominium communities such as Century Hill, Century Woods, Le Parc, Park Place and the Century Towers at 2220 and 2222 Avenue of the Stars.  It is close to the exclusive Hillcrest Country Club and Rancho Park and Golf Course and just minutes from Beverly Hills.  The recent surge of development in this area has made Century City an increasingly desirable place to live.
