One of the movie entertainment towns, Brentwood is dominated by gracious mansions and homes set amidst the hills that offer spectacular views. Most three and four-bedroom homes were built in the 1950s and 1960s, with lush trees and shrubs shading the meandering roads. Brentwood is also the home to the Getty Museum and Mount Saint Mary's College. Several parks are located nearby, as well as two golf courses.
