Bel Air is one of the prettiest areas on the Westside and Lower Bel Air (the streets closer in proximity to Sunset Blvd.), is considered by many to be “la crème de la crème”.
Lower Bel Air
Set behind elaborate and enormous gates its grand residences are some of the most luxurious mansions in the world. Often they are blessed with breathtaking city, canyon, and / or golf course views. Here in Bel Air, like in other high-end areas, celebrities and the ultra-rich are purchasing adjacent properties. Assembling these compounds, provides a greater level of privacy and additional space for lavish entertaining, staff quarters and extended family.
Upper Bel Air from the East Gate
Providing spectacular views the upper portion of Bel Air Rd and its off shoots have attracted the attention of developers who are building mansions at an accelerated pace. Intense controversy over some of the elaborate, massive new construction has pitted developers against many Bel Air residents.
Upper Bel Air from the West Gate
The upper Bel Air homes can be reached via the West Gate, Roscomare Rd, Mulholland Dr. or Sepulveda Blvd. These properties are less grand, more affordable and ideally located for those who want easy access to the Valley and / or the City. They are part of a community that features schools, houses of worship, and a small shopping area.
Guard Gated Communities
Bel Air also includes two guard gated areas on its western edge at Sepulveda Blvd., Moraga Estates and Bel Air Crest, where you can find a variety of homes, estates, tennis courts and other resort-like amenities.
Preserving Bel Air
Bel Air’s towering trees, lush greenery and abundant flowers create a lovely oasis and escape from the sights and sounds of urban life. Within Bel Air there is an association whose stated purpose is to preserve the quality of life and property values of this elegant residential area. Adding to the prestige of having a Bel Air address are the romantic Bel Air Hotel and magnificent Bel Air Country Club.
