Brentwood Glen is a neighborhood in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles, California, United States. It is located south of Sunset Boulevard and west of the San Diego Freeway (405). The streets are grouped alphabetically, with the beginning of the alphabet at its eastern end.
In the early 1920s the Ratteree Brothers bought the area of property now known as Brentwood Glen. There were four Ratteree brothers: Judge Earnest Ratteree, Dr. Ira Ratteree, James Ratteree and Allan Ratteree. They came from the south, spending most of their time in Arkansas and South Carolina before arriving in Los Angeles.
The Ratterees divided their land into five different parcels which at the time was a walnut grove. The land was referred to as the Ratteree Tract. The Ratterees filed for subdivision of the land in the mid-1920s. They named all the streets (and the names are original to this day), but they did not market the property until after the onset of the depression.
The streets and sidewalks were poured in 1927. One of the original Pepper Trees was still in front of 11346 Montana Ave up until its removal in 2011. In 1932, the first house was built at 11344 Albata Street. It is still the original structure. The majority of the houses were constructed between 1935 and 1942.
In 1954, the city of Los Angeles began construction of three overpasses of Interstate 405 on Ohio Avenue, Sunset Boulevard, and Casiano, now Getty Center Drive.
In 1960, the freeway was completed all the way through the Sepulveda Pass.
1969 was the year the Homeowners' Association was formed. At that time, residents decided to change the name of the neighborhood from the Ratteree Tract to Brentwood Glen.
The southbound on-ramp and sound wall were created in 1975 and 1976. After a bus accident in 1994, the Waterford off-ramp was closed. The on-ramp was later closed as well.
Today, Brentwood Glen is home to 560 dwellings consisting mostly of single family homes, with some duplexes, triplexes, and multiple-unit apartments.
Brentwood Glen is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Zoned schools include Kenter Canyon Charter Elementary School, Paul Revere Charter Middle School, and Palisades Charter High School.
