BEL AIR: Exclusive, luxurious, private and legendary.
Exclusive, luxurious, private and legendary are all words to describe Bel Air, which is the center of what is referred to as LA’s Platinum Triangle (including Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills)…the most affluent and glamorous group of communities in Los Angeles. It is home to the most famous and influential executives and stars, and former First Lady Nancy Reagan. There are three main section: East Gate, old Bel Air, West Gate Bel Air, and Upper Bel Air. Upon entering the lower, opulent portals, one is immediately struck by a change; from wide open boulevards and sidewalks, to gated mansions, hidden behind sweeping grounds of expansive shrubbery and trees. It is a small enclave, absent of thoroughfares and pedestrian traffic, giving it a peaceful and tranquil quality. Just inside the gates are the most visibly majestic homes, which have gorgeous views of the renowned Bel Air Country Club. Smaller ranch style houses are deceptively modest, hiding large beautifully landscaped grounds and sweeping vistas. As you make your way up the hills toward Mulholland Drive, the lots become smaller and houses more visible, with breathtaking views of Catalina Island and the LA basin. A catastrophic fire occurred in 1961, in which many celebrity residents fought unsuccessfully to save their homes. Many estates burned down, and as a result, a large portion of Bel Air was built after the mid-60s. There are only single-family residences in Bel Air, which number a mere 8,000, and, to be expected, community services are first rate. Bel Air is served by LA Unified School District and many fine private schools. The Jewish American University offers undergraduate studies, MBA and Rabbinic ordination.
Nestled among the beautiful greenery and estates is the wondrous Hannah Carter Japanese Garden, inspired by the gardens of Kyoto. The buildings were assembled in Japan and rebuilt in Bel Air. In addition, all stone carvings, lanterns and pagodas were brought from Japan. The Hotel Bel Air is another prominent and beloved icon, harkening back to old Hollywood, with its lush ponds and gracefully floating swans tucked within the grounds.
The privileged flock to Bel Air not only for its luxury, but also for the location. Sunset Blvd is the southern border and leads quickly to all manners of activity…from the beach to Olvera St downtown. Along its length can be found some of the best music venues in town, lively and legendary hotels where the hip go to see and be seen, and shopping and eating in Sunset Plaza outdoor cafes. The UCLA gates and Westwood Village are just minutes away. Down the road a scant 7 miles is the world famous Getty Museum, a jewel for it’s Richard Meier architecture and it’s dazzling art collections from Impressionist, to Modern, to Antiquities. Both the 405 and 10 freeways are easily accessible, making this location surprisingly convenient.
