BEL AIR // THE LIFE
Residents of Bel Air live in homes that often hidden behind gates and tall, manicured hedges – providing them with an enclosed escape from passers-by or prying eyes. These private havens include a real variety of residential styles, from awe-inspiring mansions to unassuming ranches to sleek, modern multi-levels.
Just off the main Bel Air entryway sit residences with prized views of the Bel-Air Country Club and the rest of Los Angeles. While lower Bel Air homes can sell for more than $50 million, many prefer the area’s close proximity to Sunset Boulevard, an exciting strip and a historic cultural landmark of Hollywood celebrity and cellulose.
BEL AIR // THE LOCATION
Bel Air rests about 17 miles west of downtown Los Angeles and is home to some of the Santa Monica Mountain foothills. At the heart of neighborhood, the private Bel Air Country Club and the Hotel Bel-Air set the tone for the community. The estates in the “Platinum Triangle,” made up of Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills, surround the city’s two major sports venues and are among the most expensive residences in the United States.
BEL AIR // THE LEGACY
Bel Air is a wealthy and prominent residential community in the hills of Los Angeles. In 1923, the community was founded by (and named after) American oil multi-millionaire, tennis champion, philanthropist and real estate developer Alphonzo E. Bell, Sr.
