Most Luxurious Neighborhoods in Los Angeles

One of the questions I get asked most frequently is – what is the trending most luxurious neighborhood in Los Angeles? While I personally love Brentwood luxury real estate, there are also a ton of other up and coming extraordinary luxury neighborhoods perfect for every lifestyle. Below are my top picks for 2017’s most luxurious neighborhoods in LA.

One of the most desirable places to reside in in the city of Los Angeles is the city of Santa Monica. The living conditions are world class and the residents have easy access to the beach anytime and any day. With the way the neighbourhood provides seclusion and privacy to its residents, it comes as no surprise that it is the most expensive neighbourhood in the Los Angeles area.

The Los Angeles area has a lot of hidden secrets but known can compare to the luxurious city of Hidden Hills located within Los Angeles. This community is shielded from the prying eyes of the general public thanks to the neighbourhood gates that require identification before entrance is allowed. Several houses in this gated community portray a simplistic style but this can easily be deceiving as the inside is where the appeal lies. Most of the houses have the design of a Texas ranch house and this keeps attracting affluent residents’ day in day out. The secluded nature also serves as a major attraction.

Third on our list of most luxurious neighbourhoods in the Los Angeles area is Bel-Air. This list would not be complete without it. Out of all the other neighbourhoods on this list, this is one of the only ones within the Los Angeles city limits. Even if most of the other neighbourhoods are not known, it can be said that Bel-Air is one of the most popular neighbourhoods in the Los Angeles area as it is known for being a celebrity magnet. From seclusion to luxurious homes up in the mountains, Bel-Air is certainly a luxurious neighbourhood.


Another luxury neighbourhood located in the Manhattan Beach area is the Sand Section. Like its predecessor, this location has seen a rise in its popularity in recent years thanks to the younger crowd. The Sand Section offers oceanfront homes and unique walk streets. There are also stunning golf courses in this part of Los Angeles Couny.


The Hill Section neighbourhood is considered to be one of the best locations with an encompassing beautiful ocean view of the city. With this attraction and closeness to the ocean front, it is no wonder that property developers and realtors alike have no problem in creating luxury homes around and within it. This neighbourhood has direct access to entertaining nightlife and surf spots. Of all the neighbourhoods, this is one of the youngest and a lot of the people residing here are of the wealthy modern day generation. The homes are located on the hills thereby providing a beautiful view from the top.

The year 2013 and 2014 saw a major rise in the sales of homes within the Pacific Palisades neighbourhood of Los Angeles. The sales volume is one that is still maintained over time owing to its prime location north of Manhattan Beach. The environment is touted as being family friendly with a picturesque view of nature. It also happens to be one of the neighbourhoods on this list that is actually within the Los Angeles area.
