Why Do Celebrities Live in Beverly Hills?

North Beverly Park is the larger of the two communities, boasting 64 homes, while South Beverly Park is home to just 16 residences. This exclusive area has become the most sought-after residential destination for the wealthy due to its unparalleled privacy and massive plots of land. One of the most interesting features of Beverly Park is its 5,000 square foot minimum rule, which is part of a 70-page property pact that all residents must abide by. This is no problem for celebrities, as every home in Beverly Park is huge, super glamorous, and packed with state-of-the-art amenities and security features.

The area now known as Beverly Park was originally intended to become a country club golf course for Hollywood's elite during the 1960s. However, this plan was never realized and instead, the area became a residential neighborhood. The dispute between North and South Beverly Park was triggered when North Beverly restricted access to South Beverly through the Mulholland Drive entrance, citing safety concerns. After a long legal battle, the courts decided that residents of South Beverly could use the northern gates freely, but the disagreements left a bitter taste for both communities.

Beverly Park extends between Mulholland Drive, Sunset Boulevard, Coldwater Canyon Drive and Beverly Glen Boulevard. It's no surprise that this area has become a popular destination for celebrities due to its luxurious homes and privacy. In fact, many famous people have lived in Beverly Park over the years, including Mia Farrow who lived here as a child with her mother Maureen O'Sullivan who was an actress in many early Tarzan films. If you're feeling sad that your favorite housewife has separated from Beverly Park, don't worry, because there are still plenty of celebrities living in the neighborhood.

Homes in Beverly Park average about 20,000 square feet or more and prices are significantly higher in North Beverly Park than in South Beverly. Unfortunately, you can't just take a walk around Beverly Park hoping to meet Mark Wahlberg or Samuel L. Jackson - but you can always keep an eye out for them!.
