Beverly Crest is a gated community that sprawls along the Santa Monica mountains around Coldwater Canyon Blvd., just north of Beverly Hills.
Beverly Crest contains several exclusive residential enclaves including Benedict Canyon, Beverly Glen, Coldwater Canyon and Franklin Canyon. These neighborhoods contain massive compounds housing magnificent mansions. With some of the most expensive real estate in the U.S. found here, expect homes in the area to be decked out with the latest in security technology. Residents here also take extra measures to help ensure that they’re keeping their lives private and these can include tall, well-manicured hedges and shady trees.
The area of Beverly Crest is roughly triangular, with Sherman Oaks to the north, Bel Air to the southwest and the city of Beverly Hills to the southeast. The borders are mapped by the Los Angeles Times to run along Mulholland Drive on the north; Stone Canyon Road to the west, then Beverly Glen Boulevard below Stone Canyon Reservoir to Sunset Boulevard on the far south.
The southeastern boundary with Beverly Hills is complex, and most of Beverly Crest lies within the so-called Beverly Hills Post Office, defined as ZIP code 90210 outside the city of Beverly Hills proper. The neighborhood of Hollywood Hills West is nearby on the east. By this definition, Beverly Crest includes Benedict Canyon, Franklin Canyon and Coldwater Canyon. Eastern portions of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area lie in this area.
