Bel Air / Holmby Hills


Luxurious estates and mansions with sweeping spaces, part of the Platinum Triangle


Most Desired


Offering opulence at its finest, Bel Air / Holmby Hills touts one of the lowest population densities in the Los Angeles area, thanks in part to the expansive dimensions of its properties.


The neighborhood features a mix of mostly mansions, alongside some more modest properties. Many homes boast multiple floors and wings, as well as gated drives and swimming pools.


First founded in 1923, Bel Air is a residential neighborhood that lies in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains. Along with Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills, it forms the Platinum Triangle of Los Angeles—widely regarded as one of the most desirable areas to live in.


The history of Holmby Hills, located south of Bel Air, dates back to the early 20th century, when it was developed concurrently with Westwood. When Sunset Boulevard was expanded, the neighborhood was split into southern and northern sections.


Holmby Hills is bordered by Beverly Hills, Wilshire Boulevard and Westwood, in addition to Bel Air. Streets within the community, like Devon Avenue, Charing Cross Road and Conway Avenue, are named for places in Great Britain.


Ultimate Seclusion


There are two main entrances to Bel Air: the East Gate at Beverly Glen and Sunset boulevards and the West Gate at Bellagio Way and Sunset Boulevard. Once inside, Bel Air is subdivided into three distinct neighborhoods: East Gate Old Bel Air, West Gate Bel Air and Upper Bel Air. The fencing around the perimeter creates a feeling of utmost privacy while remaining inviting, as the two main gates are open to the public.


Due to its location—and absence of anything apart from real estate—Bel Air offers tranquility and seclusion, with some of the most exclusive properties on the market. Traffic within the community is largely limited to its residents.


Bel Air / Holmby Hills is just a few minutes’ drive to some of the highest-end shopping in the world on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, as well as world-renowned dining options. For those looking for a bustling nightlife scene, the Sunset Strip is also just a stone’s throw away.


Beauty Abounds


Bel Air is home to the Hannah Carter Japanese Garden, which draws inspiration from the gardens of Kyoto. Also located within the community are the Bel-Air Country Club and Hotel Bel-Air, a boutique hotel with an overall old Hollywood style, surrounded by a dozen acres of gardens, with a spa and Wolfgang Puck restaurant on site.


Holmby Hills is home to two parks: Holmby Park, with two playgrounds, a nine-hole putting green and a classic lawn bowling, and De Neve Square Park. There is also the Frederick R. Weisman Art Gallery, which features works by notable artists, including impressionists, surrealists and many more.


A Star-Studded Neighborhood


Bel Air has had its fair share of Hollywood favorites who have at one time resided in the community, including Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant, Dean Martin, Henry Fonda, Alfred Hitchcock and others. Next door, household names like Walt Disney, Armand Hammer, Jean Harlow and Humphrey Bogart are all reported to have once lived in Holmby Hills.


Some of the absolute largest homes in the Los Angeles area are located in Holmby Hills, including “The Manor at Holmby Hills,” boasting 55,000 square feet over more than four and a half acres, with seven bedrooms and 29 bathrooms. The largest house in the LA metropolitan area, referred to as “The One,” is located in Bel Air, at 120,000 square feet, with 20 bedrooms and 30 bathrooms.
