Bel Air is located North of Beverly Hills, with Holmby Hills to the East, and UCLA to the South on Sunset Boulevard. Bel Air is conveniently located minutes away from Interstate 405 to the West, and a twisty stretch of Mulholland Drive on the North. Bel Air was founded in the 1920s by one of Los Angeles’ primary real estate developers, Alphonzo Bell, whom also founded the Bel Air Bay Club (an exclusive beach front club in Pacific Palisades), and the Bel Air Country Club, which is a George Thomas designed golf course (premier private courses of his design include Los Angeles Country Club and Riviera Country Club). As legend has it, Bell’s wife named the streets in Bel Air after Italian themes (such as Bellagio, Copa de Oro, Cascada, St. Cloud, St. Pierre) when the neighborhood was annexed and sold in the 1930s.


Bel Air

Tucked away along the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains and removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, Bel-Air is definitely one of the most private and exclusive neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Bel-Air is most widely known for its breathtaking homes on some of the city’s largest lots, spacious enough for a pool, a guesthouse, and even tennis courts in addition to a spectacularly grand main house. Many Bel-Air homes include breathtaking views of the Los Angeles basin, making residents feel as if they are still engaged with the beauty of the city while maintaining their privacy.

Home to many high profile individuals and families, Bel-Air is appealing to many buyers for the privacy it can offer residents. Most homes are gated, surrounded by tall hedges and lush greenery, and feature what seem like mile-long driveways, making this area the ideal neighborhood for those looking for a luxurious, private getaway they can come home to every night. With this high level of privacy comes slight isolation from nightlife and other parts of the city. While the homes are certainly luxurious, the area is lacking in the extravagant dining, shopping, and entertainment options available in other parts of the city.
