BEL AIR & HOLMBY HILLS
Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains above UCLA, Bel Air is an affluent residential community that evokes images of Hollywood legends and international jet setters. The properties are often huge, the homes typically grand and the views, spectacular. Together with Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills it forms the Platinum Triangle of Los Angeles neighborhoods.
Bel Air is accessible through several entrees or “gates”- The West Gate at Bellagio Road, The East Gate at Bel Air Road and the North Gate at Roscomare Road. Along with Upper and Lower Bel Air, Bel Air Crest and Casiano Estates are some of the other neighborhoods in Bel Air. Much of the western part of Bel Air was destroyed in the Bel Air Fire of 1963. As a result, much of Bel Air was re-developed in the mid 60s. There are therefore a wide variety of architectural and construction styles, including some spectacular examples of Classic and Mid-century architecture. Homes in Bel Air range in price from $1,100,000 in Upper Bel Air up to a high of approximately $50 million in lower Bel Air.
