Sometimes referred to as “Beverly Hills Post Office,” Bowmont Estates is an exclusive gated community located in 90210 adjacent to Trousdale Estates and south of Mulholland Drive. The hilltop location offers incredible city views for the eight estate residences which are located behind the gracious iron gates. Homes began to be built in Bowmont Estates starting in the 1940s, but the older construction has given way to modern estate properties with exclusive amenities.
Billionaires and celebrities alike have called Bowmont Estates home. Nicki Minaj is one of the more recent residents. The founder of Forever 21 international retail clothing brand and Westime wristwatch entrepreneur John Simonian live in Bowmont Estates. All of the homes in Bowmont Estates are multi-million-dollar estates and unique in construction and design, ranging from ultra-modern clifftop structures to Mediterranean-inspired villas that echo the Getty Malibu estate. Some homes enjoy spectacular canyon views as well as city and ocean views.
Although Bowmont Estates is gated, there are no homeowner association dues. The homes are located within 5 minutes of Beverly Hills shopping and dining. The estates behind the gates start at 6 bedrooms and extend to 10 bedrooms and 10,000 square feet and above. With a variety of architectural styles and visions, Bowmont Estates offers options for discerning estate home buyers who enjoy being “above it all” with incredible views of the Los Angeles basin, while being within minutes of Westside shopping, dining, and amenities. Most of the properties behind Bowmont Estates’ gate are named, such as the Villa Verdura, a 10,000 square foot multi-level Mediterranean estate with spectacular landscaped grounds, pools, and indoor and outdoor living and entertaining spaces. This gated community may often be referred to as “Beverly Hills Post Office,” or 90210 but its exclusive homes are distinctive and offer views that other estates at lower elevations in 90210 proper do not.
