Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills form the “Platinum Triangle” of the most expensive residential real estate in Los Angeles. It’s fitting, perhaps, that living in Bel Air affords one easy access to the exclusive Bel Air Country Club and world-class Hotel Bel-Air. Founded in 1923, the enclave is home to Hollywood celebrities, media moguls and international business tycoons. It’s a community of winding residential streets lined with lush foliage, walls and gates ensuring the privacy of its residents and resulting in mere glimpses of most of the tasteful homes and estates. Strict ordinances control architecture, landscaping and lot sizes, and there are no multi-family dwellings.
Just under 8,000 residents enjoy living in Bel Air, with household incomes averaging over $200,000 annually.
Public schools are within the Los Angeles Unified School Districtand there are 8 private schools in the area as well as American Jewish University.
Bel Air has been either the subject or location of many films and TV shows.
