About Hollywood Hills West

As it's name implies, the Hollywood Hills West neighborhood is in the western portion of the famous Hollywood Hills that overlook Central Los Angeles and is home to the actors, producers, musicians, and executives who run the entertainment industry. The vast majority of this area is residential, with Sunset Boulevard--with the famous "Sunset Strip" - as it's southern border. Laurel Canyon, which yields some of the few commercial establishments within the neighborhood, runs right through the center of the neighborhood, giving residents commanding views of the greater Los Angeles area.

Around Hollywood Hills West

Living in the Hollywood Hills in general, be it east or west or central, means you at least have a decent view of the remaining natural Southern California environment and are pretty secluded. However, there are some things to keep in mind when deciding on where to live in Hollywood Hills West. The higher you go, the better the views and the more luxurious the home. Although these homes have some of the best views of the city, the relative seclusion means that residents have to drive 20 minutes to get to nearest store on Sunset Boulevard.

Being primarily residential, Hollywood Hills West doesn't have much of a culinary scene, though some of the best restaurants in LA, and in the country, are in the surrounding neighborhoods. So you'll have to drive to get there. A few restaurants do reside in the heart of Laurel Canyon, the major cut through the hills in the middle of the neighborhood, including one of the most romantic spots in the area.

Expect to see very unique houses tucked into the hillsides, cars winding up the roads with hairpin turns, and plenty of wildlife. Parking is typically an adventure and can be an issue depending on which winding road your home happens to be on. Hollywood Hills West also has an abundance of parks, including the 62-acre Trebek Open Space, donated by the eponymous game show host. Hollywood Hills West is serviced by multiple schools, hosting six elementary schools, three middle schools, and four high schools.

A Friday night in Hollywood Hills West is either quiet because everyone is down in the city or electric with parties in lavish home. Either way, you'll hear just about every party happening in the area echoing off the canyons--though it's usually not enough to keep you up at night. For a classic night on the town, residents can venture down to Sunset Boulevard, which has every kind of bar and nightclub one could imagine, including celebrity-favorite Bar Marmont,and the world-famous Whiskey A Go Go.

Most residents consider the perfect Sunday to be laying beside the pool or brunching along the Sunset Strip, followed by shopping spree at one of the many boutique shops in the area. There are also several parks that are perfect for a picnic or an evening stroll. There are also a handful of movie theaters in the area for catching a matinee before getting ready for the week ahead.
