About the area: On land that was once the back lot of 20th Century Studios, Century City is actually not a city but a neighborhood bordered by Westwood, Rancho Park, Beverlywood, Cheviot Hills and Beverly Hills.

Named the seventh richest zip code in the country by CNNMoney in 2014, the urban area includes the Westfield Century City shopping mall, Fox Studios, and office high-rises such as Constellation Place and Century Plaza Towers.

On the Westside of Los Angeles, based on 87 sales, the median price for combined single-family home and condominium sales in February was $1.41 million, down 10.5% year-over-year, according to CoreLogic.
