Beverly Hills REAL ESTATE
It’s a city name recognized instantly anywhere in the world. Beverly Hills. Synonymous with estates and fine homes, world class shopping and dining, posh hotels, home and haven for celebrities and luminaries from all over the world.’
Originally a lima bean farm, the city was incorporated in 1914 by investors looking for oil; finding none, they decided to develop it into a town.
Beverly Hills real estate is often available in all configurations and locations within the city, from a one bedroom condo in the flats, to 10 or more bedroom estates on acreage overlooking the city in the Santa Monica Mountains.
In addition to size and value, Beverly Hills real estate buyers have a choice of nearly every architectural style imaginable, from vintage, Spanish-style mansions to ultra modern, contemporary ‘castles.’
One of the joys of living in Beverly Hills is the opportunity to regularly conduct the commerce in your life on a street with another iconic, world recognizable name: Rodeo Drive. This two mile long street is home to the world’s finest luxury goods shops, in couture, jewelry, and gifts.
At Rodeo and Wilshire stands the magnificent Beverly Wilshire-Four Seasons hotel, which opened in 1928 and is emblematic of the wealth of the neighborhood. The edifice is constructed from Tuscan stone and Carrara marble. The hotel has hosted celebrities and dignitaries from all over the world, and for several years, Elvis Presley and actor Warren Beatty called the hotel “home.”
