The Beverly Hills real estate market offers many distinct choices for the luxury homebuyer. Some areas include gated communities like Trousdale Estates, while others are known for their expansive views. There are also options in the Beverly Hills area for homebuyers who seek a more diverse mix of architecture, lifestyle options and geography.
One popular area is Beverly Hills Post Office (or “BHPO”), a neighborhood with a 90210 zip code that is actually part of Los Angeles. Many high-profile celebrities have purchased homes here at some point, including Britney Spears, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, and Eddie Murphy. The neighborhood is also known for its mix of celebrity and non-celebrity residents, which can be appealing for the homebuyer seeking a more typical suburban lifestyle experience.
Beverly Hills Post Office is defined as the area extending from a few blocks north of Sunset Boulevard to Mulholland Drive and Coldwater Canyon to Benedict Canyon Drive. In addition to the prime location near the major Beverly Hills thoroughfares, this area offers more homes with views than many other popular Beverly Hills options, at a lower price point. Some homebuyers are buying homes here and completely remodeling them, or even tearing them down and rebuilding, to meet their needs.
