Welcome to Bel Air

A tranquil, private-feeling neighborhood with stunning views
 
Nestled between two mountainous parks, Franklin Canyon Park and Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park, Bel Air carries a serene and secluded vibe. To the west of Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park are state parks belonging to Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area with many hiking trails. Bel Air is also home to Stone Canyon Overlook and Getty View Park, enhancing Bel Air’s peaceful atmosphere. Bel Air rests atop the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountain Range, lending its homes extraordinary views of these mountain ranges. Bel Air homes are lavish estates or modern-styled mansions, often designed with glass walls or partially outdoor living spaces to maximize views. They often contain multiple car garages, pools, and sprawling gardens or lawns. Award-winning Montalba Architects reside in the area and have designed Bel Air homes. Residents love this peaceful enclave being only a 30-minute drive to Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles International Airport, or Downtown Los Angeles.
