Cheviot Hills is a great place to live. The outlines on the map are inaccurate, it makes the area larger than it really is. To see the real boundaries, view the individual HOA websites. I believe there are two. Winding, tree lined, streets a variety of architectural styles, great neighbors, with a mix of singles, couples, new families and retirees. It is a safe neighborhood, with 24 hour security patrols and while nowhere in LA is crime free, crime is minimal here. Not alot of homes are for sale but the nice ones still sell very quickly. Coming home is a nice escape from the hectic pace of much of LA, yet only 10 mins, at most, from Century City and Westside Pavilion. Culver City restaurants are also an easy drive. It is also a great commute if you work downtown.
I grew up in Cheviot Hills in the late 1950's, we lived on the corner of Troon and Dumfries. A bunch of us kids would spend the whole day together, ride bikes, swim, play hide & seek. We'd go home when we were hungry. It was the best! I have such fond memories of that neighborhood, the beautiful homes, mature trees. I'm sure it's changed, as times do, but for me it was magical.
I just moved here a year ago with my fiance and two young boys. I enjoy taking family walks in the morings and admiring the tree lined streets. Though, some of the bordering neighborhoods aren't the best and crime flows from those neighborhoods into Cheviot Hills. It does kind of bother me at night and I wont let my boys step out of the house alone. This is a great neighborhood for couples but not to raise families. The public schools here aren't the best and we don't want to send our boys to private schools. So once they start school, we will be relocating to safer neighborhood.
I've lived here my whole life and have always told people I'm from Palms.
I never wanted the bourgeois tie attached to the name that most of the snoots talking about 'walkability' seem to be holding on to.
cheviot is amazing. i love rancho park
As someone who has lived in both Culver City and Cheviot Hills I am definitely happier in Cheviot Hills than Culver City. CH is prettier, quieter, nicer, safer and more of a neighborhood.
While the proximity to the revitalized downtown area of Culver City is nice, it's really not all that walkable to most of Culver City anyway, so that advantage isn't big . And we walk to several restaurants and stores up on Pico with regularity, so I'm not sure the whole "not walkable" thing comes from.
Looks like some people living in Rancho Park view themselves as living in Cheviot Hills, from all the complaints listed here from people living west of Manning. Or perhaps the boundaries have shifted westward over the years. And these people really don't seem to like to have their neighborhood compared to Culver City, which is nicer and more walkable than Cheviot Hills by any definition and does compete for the same buyers with Cheviot and Rancho. Some of you people seem to think you're living in Beverly Hills, but you're not.
I think some people misunderstand the meaning behind "walkable". When posters say it isn't walkable, they don't mean you can't take a nice scenic walk. They're referring to how easy it is to walk to nearby shops, restaurants and other conveniences. For instance, a website will determine an area's walkability score based on the nearby businesses (http://bit.ly/3SDIkZ).
The notion that Cheviot Hills and Culver City compete for the same buyers is ridiculous. You can walk to Century City from Cheviot Hills (done it); it has beautiful homes that start in the $600-700,000 even today and hilly, tree-lined streets. CC, not so much.
Cheviot Hills is a fantastic place to live - convenient to the shops on Pico Blvd, Westside Pavillion as well as being close (but not too close to Culver City). It has attractive streets and houses - walks are great as there are great hills and views of Century City, Rancho Park and Golf course are easy walks.
"Cheviot Hills is not a desirable place to be on the Westside." I am almost chuckling as I read this... What unbelievable utopian world do people live in? A beautiful, clean, safe and friendly neighborhood five minutes from the fwy? Yea...sounds awful..
Justin is correct. Cheviot Hills is not a desirable place to be on the Westside. It is not walkable, and while it is close to Culver City it does not have the advantages that come with living in Culver City. And yes, it not only borders on Palms, but the worst sections of Palms east of Motor which have had crime and poverty issues for 20 years. The property crime issues have and do spill into Cheviot Hills. If you're thinking of buying property in Cheviot Hills, don't. You're better off in Culver City where you'll get more for your money and superior public services as well as enjoying what good things that Cheviot has to offer.
Cheviot Hills is a nice neighborhood with nothing good around it or close to it. I'm outta here folks.
This is one of the least walkable westside neighborhoods. A walk to downtown Culver City isn't too far, but it is certainly not part of living in Cheviot. This is just a housing tract with nothing to offer but solitude. The sound of the 10 freeway is loud, and getting on the 10 West is a pain (however East couldn't be easier). It is beautiful but its proximity to and shares borders with some of the dumpiest westside neighborhoods make this not good enough of anything to be worth living in. Not close enough to the beach to be nice not close enough to Hollywood or Downtown to be nice. This place is sort of equidistance to everywhere and because of that is close to nowhere.
Plus my car was stolen outta my garage in the middle of the day on a Sunday a few months ago. This is not a safe neighborhood.
please correct south west boundary for Cheviot Hills to include Northvale and Walavista rd., not Manning.
From the Cheviot Hills HOA's website:
West Los Angeles’ Cheviot Hills neighborhood is a fusion of several residential tracts that were developed beginning in the early-1920s. First came Country Club Highlands (1923), Cheviot Hills (1924), and Monte-Mar Vista (1926). These three tracts retained their separate identities until at least the late 1930s. In 1939 a fourth tract was added to the south: Cheviot Knolls. The California Country Club Estates tract was built beginning in about 1952, followed by the final nearly two-dozen homes on the east in around 1968.

Used to live on Northvale back when it was Exposition. My family always called it Rancho Park. Cheviot Hills was on the other side of Manning. If people are going to claim Northvale as part of Cheviot Hills, then you might as well claim that Motor and Cheviot is part of Palms....
beverlywood is not in cheviot hills. just drive by the street signs that say "welcome to beverlywood" to get an accurate map. it's about 1 mile east of cheviot hills.
Beverlywood is NOT in Cheviot Hills, but is adjacent to it. Beverlywood has its own homeowners' association.
I am a resident of Cheviot Hills. I live between Manning and Northvale Road. Please correct this. By the way, no census takers came to my house.
By now you know that Cheviot Hills goes beyond Manning to Northvale. I have lived on Manning and Butterfield since 1963. All my friends know I live in Cheviot Hills. The best quality of the area is the weather. On the hottest days, it is several degrees cooler than
Westwood or Beverly Hills because of an ocean breeze. I have no air conditioning and have been uncomfortable only during a very severe heatwave.
The boundaries of Cheviot Hills are as described by our Homeowner Organization president, Kevin Hughes, and many others. Rountree does not have a d. Cheviot Hills is a wonderful place to live - beautiful and quiet (at least on my street) and close to everything we need. I've lived here since 1963, and love it. Please correct your map.
Please correct the boundares, of Cheviot Hills,as others have. If not,many will assume that your project is significantly flawed, and therefore unreliable.
Living in the midst of an ever crowded Los Angeles,(where I was born) I am ever more aware of this beautiful quiet refuge. With its tree-lined streets, and with neighbors who have become friends throughout the years, I am truly at home.
several of your boundaries are incorrect. many of the previous commentators have noted them. however, please note that rountree is spelled without a 'D' as it is a surname. it also is incorrectly spelled on the HOA map provided by mr hughes.
your boundaries are wrong, it should be northvale not manning as the boundary.
The Southwest boundary for Cheviot Hills is identified as Manning Avenue, when in fact it extends to Northvale Road and Walavista Road . The Times have again made a mistake. It is vitally important that the boundaries of Cheviot Hills be identified correctly, please define our neighborhood correctly, so that the hundreds of Cheviot neighbors between Manning Avenue and Northvale Road, and those on Walavista, are not disenfranchised.
THE BOUNDARIES ARE ALL WRONG. CHEVIOT HILLS DOES NOT EXTEND TO PICO, BUT STOPS AT ASHBY ON THE NORTH. THE WESTERN BOUNDARY IS NORTHVALE, WITH THE HISTORIC RAILROAD RIGHT OF WAY ON ITS BORDER AND THE EASTERN BORDER IS MCCONNELL. YOU HAVE INCLUDED PART OF RANCHO PARK AND BEVERLYWOOD AND LEFT OUT A GOOD PART OF CHEVIOT.....PLEASE CORRECT.
I believe your southwestern boundry for cheviot hills is incorrect and should be northvale and walavista. Please make the correction if this is valid. Thank you.
While looking at your Cheviot Hills map borders I noticed you made a mistake assessing its historical boundaries. On the southern flank, Northvale Road is officially in Cheviot Hills; starting from Motor and all the way to Roundtree Rd (its western boundary). For some reason, the block containing Overland Elementary school and an adjacent block next to it (Putney Road) aren't part of historic Cheviot Hills (they are considered Rancho Park). You can tell the Cheviot Hills side by a very small detail - Northvale Road suddently widens as you drive past Roundtree Rd heading east.
The home I grew up in and still own on Bradbury Rd.
has always been, or so I thought, in Cheviot Hills.
Did the Times change this? If so, why?
Cheviot Hills' southern boundary is Northvale, not Manning. Please correct this error and identify our Cheviot Hills neighborhood accurately.
As a 38 year resident of this community I can tell you that Cheviot Hills extends Southwest to Northvale. A map of the Cheviot Hills boundaries can be found at the HOA website:
In my opinion, one among many reasons to live in Cheviot Hills is its proximity to Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, freeways to downtown, Valley, Airport and Marina.
I have lived in Cheviot Hills for twenty years and it is a wonderful neighborhood. The negatives (which are minor) are freeway noise, cut-through traffic, and the potential light rail coming through on the Exposition right of way (unless the powers that be can be persuaded to construct the tracks below grade at intersections, in which case I say - great!).
I agree with other commentators that the boundaries include those streets between Manning and Northvale over to Motor, as well as Walavista.
It is one of the best walking neighborhoods in the city. Yes, it has its share of intense hills and if you're going for the serious cardio burn, take a brisk walk on Manning from Butterfield to Motor. For a lovely concentration of beautiful homes and golf course views, try Monte Mar, Glenbarr, Forrester and McConnell. And for the almost perfect 3 mile loop, take a walk around the Rancho Park golf course. You will see many of us there, with or without our beloved dogs, as well as people from all over the westside, who love to walk and jog our streets. After your walk, if you find yourself at the corner of Pico and Patricia (which I often do somehow!), you can't leave our area without stopping into John O'Groats for its addicting biscuits, pancakes and Grandma's omelets. It's a great way to spend a Sunday morning.
I live on Cheviot Drive between Manning and Northvale, please include our block as part of the Cheviot Hills neighborhood. Thank you.
As a 42 year resident of Cheviot Hills, I can tell you that Cheviot Hills extends south beyond Manning to include Northvale and Walavista. In other words, the southern boundary of Cheviot Hills is the 10 freeway.
PLEASE DO MORE RESEARCH, SO THAT THE CORRECT INFORMATION REGARDING CHEVIOT HILLS CAN BE ACCURATELY REPRESENTED WITH REFERENCE TO BOUNDARIES.
Your map is inaccurate: Cheviot Hills continues west of Manning to Northvale Rd.
I agree with the B. Berlin and C. Sanders. Cheviot Hills continues west of Motor to Overland on some streets, including Haddington, Ivy Glen, Dunleen and Clarkson.
As President of the Cheviot Hills Home Owners' Association, I can tell you that Cheviot does extend Southwest to Northvale. A map of the Cheviot Hills boundaries can be found at the HOA website:

Cheviot Hills continues southwest to Northvale. Our streets - Haddington, Dunleer, etc. run on both sides of Manning. Why are you cutting Cheviot off at Manning?
I grew up on Clarkson between Manning and Northvale. I am trying to understand why that part is included with Rancho Park instead of Cheviot Hills. Rancho Park (as you define it) is literally on the other side of the tracks. I always thought that expression meant something.
I just finished reading the article about the compilation, and I feel that if you truly went through every street, you would have made the C.H. dividing line Northvale to Overland as opposed to Manning (which is easier, but not accurate). I would also argue that the name of the community Cheviot HILLS would help to include streets between Manning and Northvale, as they are "Hilly".
I think you did a fantastic job, and I hope you continue to improve the wonderful work you did.
