About Cheviot Hills
Cheviot Hills is a neighborhood of single-family homes located on the Westside of Los Angeles, California and is adjacent to Century City and 20th Century Fox Studios. Cheviot Hills received its name from the gently rolling hills that are reminiscent of the Cheviot hills between England and Scotland. Cheviot Hills consists of a neighborhood of approximately 1400 single-family homes, most of which originally were built in the 1920s and are largely traditional in style. Residents of Cheviot Hills are a friendly, close-knit community.
Situated within a short drive of both Fox Studios and Sony Pictures Studios, the neighborhood has often been the site for the filming of motion pictures and television shows.
Examples dating to the 1920s and 1930s include the Laurel and Hardy films The Finishing Touch, Big Business, and Bacon Grabbers, among others. Later examples include The Ropers television series from the late 1970s and the movie Private School in 1983. A house on Cheviot Drive was used in “The Flying Nun” starring Sally Field and a house on Glenbarr Avenue was the home of “Nanny and the Professor”. On ABC-TV’s “Modern Family” the exterior of a home on Dunleer Drive is seen as Claire and Phil Dunphy’s residence.
