Cheviot Hills is one of the top filming locations in Hollywood. Its central location makes it easily accessible from both Fox Studios and Sony Studios, and as a result, a number of actors, producers, and TV stars have made this community their home. Even without the influence of Hollywood’s stars, Cheviot Hills is an upscale neighborhood in its own right, and its centralized location brings in people from all around the Los Angeles metro area. Century City, Beverlywood, Castle Heights, Palms, Rancho Park, and West Los Angeles border this community.
Living in Cheviot Hills
Cheviot Hills is home to a number of top spots for outdoor recreation, such as Cheviot Hills Park, the Cheviot Hills Recreation Center, community tennis courts, and a public golf course. The recreation center is home to an often-used community room, barbeque pits and picnic tables, basketball courts, baseball fields, a gym, volleyball courts, and a playground for the kids. This diverse area is a great place to spend an afternoon in the sun with all your kids and their friends.
Cheviot Hills is adjacent to two top-notch golf courses: Rancho Park Golf Course and Hillcrest Country Club. Rancho Park Golf Course is a public golf course that is overseen by the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks. This 18-hole course has been the site of several well-known tournaments, including the PGA Tour and the Los Angeles Open. Hillcrest Country Club is in the heart of the action: right across the street from Fox Studios. This country club includes an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, and a clubhouse. In the 1950s, the club’s members agreed to allow oil drilling to occur on their land, and since then, membership in Hillcrest Country Club has been reserved for mostly upper class members. Membership is frequently passed down from father to son in a will.

Two examples of this are the Strauss-Lewis House (designed by Raphael Soriano) and the Harry Culver Estate, which was drafted by Wallace Neff. While this area started out as a middle class neighborhood, the housing prices in this area have increased drastically over the last decade. Present day home prices in Cheviot Hills are comparable to Beverly Hills, Belair, and Holmby Hills.
