Beverly Hills is a city (not only a neighborhood) in Los Angeles County, California. Located within 5.7 square miles and surrounded by the cities of Los Angeles and West Hollywood. Beverly Hills was incorporated in 1914 by a group of investors who had failed to find oil; only water and eventually decided to develop it into a town. The city is home to many celebrities, luxury hotels, and the Rodeo Drive shopping district. Beverly Hills is certainly a city with a robust and fascinating history and some of what may be considered the very finest and most desirable properties in the world are located within its boundaries.
Trousdale section of Beverly Hills
In 1956, Paul Trousdale (1915–1990) purchased the grounds of the Doheny Ranch and developed it into the Trousdale Estates, convincing the city of Beverly Hills to annex it.
Trousdale first built 532 original lots, all subject to strict regulations devised by the Architectural Committee, including how high roofs could be. Early houses were designed by renowned architects Wallace Neff (1895–1982), Paul R. Williams (1894–1980), A. Quincy Jones (1913–1979), Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) and Harold Levitt (1922–2003). Allen Siple (1900–1973) acted as the supervising architect. There are also “view protections” that protect a resident’s view from neighboring trees, outlined in the Trousdale Ordinance, which the City of Beverly Hills enforces.
As far as the local famous zip code, 90210, part of it covers a large part of the City of Beverly Hills and part represents the area of “Beverly Hills Post Office” which is also partly known as the Beverly Crest neighborhood in the City of Los Angeles. Homeowners and residents located in the Beverly Hills Post Office section of Beverly Crest are allowed to utilize the “Beverly Hills CA, 90210” address even though that particular, and fairly large, area is not actually part of the City of Beverly Hills.
If you were to take one of those bus tours of “homes of the stars”, a lot of that tour would be focused driving the storied and historic streets and homes of Beverly Hills.
