The Summit is a guard gated community in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles, California. It is located on the north side of Mulholland Drive, between Coldwater Canyon and Laurel Canyon on the border of Studio City and Beverly Hills post office. “Beverly Hills Post Office” (for those who do not know), is a section of Los Angeles which sits adjacent to the city of Beverly Hills, but which comes with a Beverly Hills, 90210 zip code.
Home prices in The Summit generally start just under $3,000,000 and can go to upwards of $4,000,000 and more, depending on the square footage and other features of the lot and home. Sizes typically fall in the 4,000 to 8,000 square feet range. As you might expect, The Summit is home to many elite LA residents, from A-list celebrities to successful business executives.

As for The Summit, I personally think this is a great community. It’s located in a prime area of LA, close to both Beverly Hills on the south side of Mulholland Drive, and the San Fernando Valley communities of Sherman Oaks and Studio City on the north side of Mulholland. As far as gated communities go, I think the security in the Summit ranks near the top compared to some of the other gated communities i’ve been in. It doesn’t matter how nice your car is or how many times you’ve been there, the guards always stop you and verify you have been invited to the community, as well as enter you in their system and make copies of your ID. And when you leave, they make it a point to stop you and collect your sticker so they know you’ve left the community. So if security is one of your concerns, I think this is one of the better communities to consider. In fact, the last time I was in The Summit with clients showing property I actually saw kids outside playing and riding bikes – I think this speaks volumes to how the residents feel about the security in this community! Need I say more?
As for the homes, many of the lots take advantage of breathtaking views of city lights and the mountians to the north. On a clear day you can almost see forever. Another thing I really like about The Summit is that all of the homes are unique – you won’t see any cookie cutter homes here that you sometimes find in other gated communities. The styles you’ll find range from mediterranean to colonial to contemporary and modern – something for just about every taste.
So there you have it! If you are in the market for a luxury home or estate and would like to view any of these properties, I would be more than happy to work with you on finding you the perfect home. Please contact me by filling out my contact form or by giving me a call at (310) 717-2232.
