Trousdale Estates is a community within the City of Beverly Hills, carved out of the hillside from what was once the Doheny Estate. Most of the homes within the development were built during the 1960s and feature mid-century modern homes sited on terraced lots. Trousdale Estates real estate consists of a high concentration of homes designed by notable architects and led to the neighborhood's reputation as an enclave for mid-century modern chic. Other architectural styles are represented within the neighborhood, ranging from the more traditional to ultra-modern glass jewel boxes. The community is home to many high-profile residents, who value the privacy afforded by lush landscaping, gated lots, and a private security firm with armed guards patrolling the neighborhood around the clock.
