Welcome to Bel Air
Bel Air has become a symbol of the Los Angeles elite.
Bel Air-Holmby Hills was established in the early 1920s by Alphonzo Bell, who bought a house on a large ranch after becoming a millionaire when he struck oil on his farm in nearby Santa Fe Springs. Bel Air-Holmby Hills is a neighborhood where privacy and high-priced real estate go hand in hand.
Celebrities, entertainers, and Hollywood power players.
Bel Air is home to many film industry elite who take shelter in its secluded properties. These houses often feature strategically-placed ornate gates or foliage to provide an added layer of security and privacy.
What to Expect
Massive houses amid the Santa Monica foothills.
This Valley enclave is known for its retail scene, with three main malls to choose from including the open-air Galleria. Local dining institutions like Robbie Mac’s Pizza and The Local Peasant line Ventura Avenue, providing residents with just enough to keep them busy in this quiet town.
Tranquil, secluded, and discreet.
Bel Air represents a protective oasis within the greater Los Angeles area for many of its residents. Life is placid in Bel Air, which is what its denizens most appreciate. Aside from the Bel Air Hotel and the Bel Air Country Club, there are few social hubs.
A gated perimeter, accessible to the east and west.
Although the Bel Air community is gated, its two main entrances are open to the public. While the privacy fencing adds to the neighborhood’s hallowed sensibility, its open access points introduce an inviting element.
Bel Air property is some of the most exclusive in the country.
Bel Air is a mix of massive mansions and, well, more modest mansions. Multiple floors and wings are the norm; gated drives offer properties a great deal of privacy and swimming pools abound.
