Westwood Hills is a vibrant neighborhood of 605 single family homes located immediately west of the UCLA campus. Developed in 1929, the neighborhood was originally called “Streets of Old Monterrey, ” and was part of a larger Janss Investment Corporation “Westwood Hills” development that also included UCLA, Westwood Village, Westwood - Holmby and the Westwood neighborhoods south of Wilshire to Santa Monica Blvd.
Over time, “Streets of Old Monterrey,” with its charming network of streets, came to be known as Westwood Hills. Westwood Hills today lies at the heart of a diverse urban community yet retains its historical character and architectural distinction. Among its lovely homes are examples of work by many outstanding California architects including Paul Williams, Rudolph Schindler, Allen Siple and Wallace Neff.
More than 83 percent of the homeowners in Westwood Hills are members of the Westwood Hills Property Owners Association (WHPOA). Established in 1958, WHPOA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the quality of life in Westwood Hills.
The boundaries of the Westwood Hills Neighborhood are Sunset Blvd on the north, Veteran Ave on the east, Sepulveda Blvd on the west and the Veterans Cemetery on the south.
