Beverlywood - VPF

When I was born, we lived in a house that my Dad designed in Beverlywood, an area south of Beverly Hills, in Los Angeles. I don't remember the house because we moved to nearby Beverly Hills when I was two years old. However, the house is still there and I drive by it often. It still looks great and very much the same, except the landscaping is very lush now.

Beverlywood is a very nice area of Los Angeles. There are good schools, stores, restaurants, markets and bakeries nearby. I've lived my entire life on the edges of this neighborhood, so I feel very at home here. Which area of Los Angeles is "home" to you?

More VPF.

I had a friend who lived in Beverlywood and I loved his house and neighborhood.

I've only lived here 15 years, but "home" will always be my own beloved 'wood--Hollywood.

I recognize that house!! I think I pass it when I take the back route to/from work. :) Funny how it hasn't changed (much).

I've been here 12 years; I guess "home" is the 'hood - anywhere along Pico, between La Brea and Fairfax.
