Cheviot Hills is an affluent neighborhood of single family homes located on the Westside of Los Angeles, California. Its gently rolling hills are reminiscent of the Cheviot Hills area on the border between Scotland and England, which is how the area got its name.
Originally a part of the Spanish Rancho Rincon de los Bueyes land grant, Cheviot Hills remained a pastoral area well into the 20th century. In the early 1920s, the area was subdivided, but significant residential development did not occur until the late 1930s, Today, Cheviot Hills consists of a neighborhood of approximately 1400 single family homes. Most of the homes were built in the 1940s and early 1950s. The homes in the area are largely traditional in style.
Cheviot Hills is adjacent to Century City and the 20th Century Fox Film Studio. It is surrounded by two golf courses (Rancho Park and Hillcrest Country Club), a large public park as well as a private tennis and social club (Beverly Hills Country Club). It is in close proximity to the office towers of Century City where many of its residents work, two upscale shopping malls (Westfield Century City Mall and the Westside Pavillion) as well as the City of Beverly Hills. Cheviot Hills also offers easy freeway access to Downtown Los Angeles.
The hills that provide the district with its name offer excellent views of much of the Los Angeles Basin.
Historically, Cheviot Hills has long been popular among empty-nesters and the elderly (many of whom were original owners). Recently, however, there has been a substantial influx of families with children. Many of the new families have performed substantial remodeling work on their homes.
