Real estate in Cheviot Hills/Rancho Park

The housing stock in Cheviot Hills-Rancho Park consists mostly of single-family homes and multi-family properties. There’s a variety of architectural styles that range from Tudor and mid-century modern to French Normandy and Spanish Colonial Revival. Most residences command views of city lights and the nearby golf course. Single-family homes often have four bedrooms or more, along with outdoor patios and private pools. Fine cabinetry, walk-in closets, and high ceilings are common features. Formerly part of the Rancho Rincon de los Bueyes land grant, Cheviot Hills borders the Rancho Park Golf Course and Hillcrest Country Club to the south. Breathtaking views of the Los Angeles Basin make the homes in this neighborhood highly sought after.

There’s a distinction between Old and New Cheviot – the latter refers to the California Country Club, which operated as a golf course before being converted into 410 residential lots in 1951. The enclave has its own homeowners association. The rest of the neighborhood is called Old Cheviot, with Club Drive and Queensbury Drive as dividing roads.

Rancho Park surrounds the Rancho Park Golf Course. It was part of Westwood until the extension of 10th Street bisected the area north and south. Today, it’s one of the smallest neighborhoods in LA, but its affluence more than makes up for its size.
