With its residential thoroughfares lined with multi-million dollar mansions, towering trees, and miles of manicured green lawns, Beverly Hills is synonymous worldwide with opulence and prestige. Single family residences in the city can range from $1,000,000 in the South of Santa Monica Blvd area, all the way upwards of $30,000,000 for sprawling estates North of Sunset Blvd.
The highly desirable Beverly Hills “flats” is a neighborhood that is roughly defined by Sunset Boulevard on the north, Doheny Boulevard on the east, Whittier on the west, bordering on Holmby Hills, and Santa Monica Boulevard on the south. The term “flats” comes from the fact that, unlike neighborhoods such as Trousdale Estates, Holmby Hills and Beverly Hills Post Office, the real estate lots and surroundings are much more physically flat. Beverly Hills flats real estate offers the discerning homebuyer a walking neighborhood; the amenities of the Platinum Triangle are a brief walk or two-minute car ride away. This includes world-class shopping, gourmet restaurants, and some of the best hotels in the world.
The City of Beverly Hills public works department maintains stringent standards and ensures streets and public areas are kept in an immaculate condition. The city is renown for the rapid response times of its Police and Fire services and the Beverly Hills school system is amongst the most sought-after districts in Los Angeles.
