Cheviot Hills is a beautiful and historic small residential neighborhood on the Westside of Los Angeles. Named after the Cheviot Hills range that lies between England and Scotland due to its lovely rolling hills, Cheviot Hills sits near a wealth of recreation, shopping, dining and cultural centers, including the wonderful Cheviot Hills Recreation Center. In addition, its schools are some of the best in the country with excellent test scores and nearby UCLA offers not only continuing education courses, but many cultural and sporting events for the community, too. Cheviot Hills is centrally located for members of the film business, high-tech computer industry and professional law and medical offices nearby. And with the real estate boom that began in the late 90s, Cheviot Hills became a hot spot for upwardly mobile families priced out of Brentwood and Westwood, making it now one of the most desirable neighborhoods in L.A.
