Cheviot Hills is an affluent neighborhood of single-family homes located on the Westside of Los Angeles, California. Its gently rolling hills are reminiscent of the Cheviot Hills area on the border between Scotland and England, which is how the area got its name.
Originally a part of the Spanish Rancho Rincon de los Bueyes land grant, Cheviot Hills remained a pastoral area well into the 20th century. In the early 1920s, the area was subdivided, but significant residential development did not occur until the late 1930s, Today, Cheviot Hills consists of a neighborhood of approximately 1400 single family homes. Most of the homes were built in the 1940s and early 1950s. The homes in the area are largely traditional in style.
