Beverly Hills Mansions For Sale
Los Angeles County’s most famous city calls to mind sun-drenched images of opulent mansions, palm tree-lined streets, and of course, those store signs along Rodeo Drive.
But there’s more to this Westside enclave than “champagne wishes and caviar dreams”, as the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous catchphrase goes.
Few would guess that this TV-famous zip code – 90210 – is in fact a small and close-knit community of just a little over 35,000 residents.
Spanning just 5.71 square miles, the city is bounded by Franklin Canyon Park and Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area to the north, West Hollywood to the east, Hillcrest Country Club to the south, and Los Angeles Country Club to the west.

Buyers will also find a wide range of architectural styles in the city, including Spanish, Mediterranean, Cape Cod, Traditional, and Contemporary, just to name a few.

Also known as “The Enchanted Hill”, this sprawling land site with stunning views of Downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific offers tremendous potential for redevelopment either as a single-family compound or a gated community.

Allen, the property is ready for construction, with its own mile-long private street and utilities.
This Italian palazzo is fir for royalty – accessible via its own street with massivegates that lead to a magnificent 30-car courtyard lined with Canary Island palms. 20 bedrooms and 16 full baths provide plenty of living space in addition to a two-story guesthouse. The four-acre backyard features an outdoor pool, pool house, tennis court, and a walking/jogging trail that borders the perimeter of the estate. A separate lot presents opportunities for expansion and other developments.
Beverly Hills was bountiful even before the mansions, high-profile residents, and luxury stores – it was always rich in water and vegetation. Its coveted location between the Benedict, Coldwater, and Franklin canyons meant that water ran freely in the streams that flowed through the area.
