Cheviot Hills lies between Fox Studios and Sony Studios, so it is a big surprise to no one that it has been the setting for many movie and TV productions and home to a slew of actors, television personalities and studio executives. But it was around long before entertainment became big business in America. It was located within the Rancho Rincon de los Bueyes land grant back in the days when Spain was the ruling entity in this parcel of what became California. It was originally primarily agricultural, and remained largely undeveloped until the 1920s, when the Pacific Electric Railway ran part of its Santa Monica Air Line along the southern edge of the Cheviot Hills. Then development began where the old California Country Club had been located.
In the mid- to late 1920s, housing in the town was middle-class, with house prices starting in the $50,000 range. That would translate to $663,000 today. Prominent architects added to the ambience of the area with such notable dwellings as the Strauss-Lewis House and the Harry Culver Estate. With Beverly Hills, Bel Air and Holmby Hills as neighbors, it was inevitable that grandiose housing would begin to supplant the original humble beginnings of Cheviot Hills. Redfins named the town the "hottest" neighborhood in the country in 2013. In 2015, CityLab named it the 24th most expensive place in the country to rent in. Many of the 1920s homes have fallen victim to the more upscale surge of building.
But as the neighborhood became more and more plush, the work-a-day world went on, and there was a need for notaries to authenticate important personal documents. They are on hand in Cheviot Hills, ready at the ring of a telephone to meet clients anytime and anywhere it is convenient. That means you can have a thoroughly professional mobile notary witness and set a seal to your signature on a will, deed or mortgage document in short order and send you on your way, secure that all is legally in order. That's not to mention a whole list of other documents that require the notary touch to pass legal muster. Any document you can name that could conceivably get a legal challenge is fair game for the notary.
Among those who have had homes in Cheviot Hills is Agnes Moorehead, who lived there in her Terrace View estate during the 1940s and 1950s. Her house was designed by Eugene R. Ward.
In 1952 on the site of the former California Country Club, California Country Club Estates rose, a neighborhood of single-family homes that is known locally as New Cheviot, as opposed to the rest of Cheviot Hills which is known as Old Cheviot.. The neighborhood was originally developed by Sanford Adler, the owner of the Flamingo Las Vegas and El Rancho Hotel and Casino, and included homes built by architects such as A. Quincy Jones.
Even predating Moorehead, the town was the setting for films starring the zany twosome of Laurel and Hardy. The comedians filmed "The Finishing Touch," "Big Business" and "Bacon Grabbers" here. A house on Cheviot was featured as Sally Fields' home in "The Flying Nun," and another residence on Glenbart Avenue was the TV home of "Nanny and the Professor." Exteropr scenes for "Modern Family," an ABC-TV production, were shot at a home on Dunleer Drive and depicted the place that Claire and Phil Dunphy called home.
