History

Beverlywood is flanked on the north by Pico-Robertson, on the east by Mid-City, on the south by Palms and on the west by Cheviot Hills. Beverlywood's street and other borders are given as: north, Cashio Street and Airdrome Street; east. Canfield Avenue and Robertson Boulevard; south, Cattaraugus Avenue; and west, Beverwil Drive and the boundary with the Hillcrest Country Club.

The borders of the Beverlywood Home Owners Association are as follows: Monte Mar Drive to the north, Hillcrest Country Club and Anchor Avenue to the west, Beverlywood Street to the south, and Robertson Boulevard to the east. These borders are marked by entrance monuments and signs. The neighborhood's HOA owns and maintains several private parks in the neighborhood, including Circle Park, which are gated and only accessibly to Beverlywood residents.

Beverlywood was developed in 1940 by Walter H. Leimert, who also developed Leimert Park. The neighborhood consists of 1,354 single family homes, and was one of the first neighborhoods in the Los Angeles area to have binding CC&Rs. These regulations strictly limit housing size, style, color, and design along with additional restrictions on landscaping, and are enforced by a review committee.

In recent years, the neighborhood has become a hotspot for mansionization. Despite complying with HOA regulations, many residents believe that the newer and larger houses ruin the feel of the neighborhood, and have been successfully campaigning the Los Angeles City Council for regulations to restrict new home sizes.

Population
The 2000 U.S. census counted 6,080 residents in the 0.79-square-mile Beverlywood neighborhood—an average of 7,654 people per square mile, about average for the city. In 2008, the city estimated that the population had increased to 6,418. The median age for residents was 39, older than the city at large; the percentages of residents aged 35 to 49 and 65 and older were among the county's highest.[8]

Education
Fifty-five percent of Beverlywood residents aged 25 and older had earned a four-year degree by 2000, a high figure for both the city and the county. The percentages of residents of that age with a bachelor's degree or a master's degree were also considered high for the county.
