Sandwiched between Century City and Culver City, Cheviot Hills offers both access to the business and an escape. Neighbors meet up for backyard barbecues, trade baseball statistics and catch up on gossip while jogging with their strollers to the park. The appeal is that if you didn’t know you were minutes from Hollywood when you stumbled into Cheviot Hills, you might never realize it.
Upscale, leafy and quiet, the neighborhood’s winding streets feature large single-family homes and little else. There is one small shopping plaza, the Cheviot Hills Shopping Center, with a Vons grocery store, a Rite Aid drugstore, a Starbucks and a few food outlets. The Rancho Park Golf Course and the Hillcrest Country Club form the north and northwest borders of the neighborhood; beneath those green spaces, the neighborhood is triangular, with Manning Avenue forming a border down to the I-10 highway to the west, and Beverwil Drive forming its eastern edge.
