Bel Air breathes an air of luxury and exclusivity, with private schools, beautiful mansions and homes behind high retaining walls, and very little foot traffic except for private events. Mostly residential, our Bel Air houses for sale are carpeted by sprawling lawns, security, and massive square-footage in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, which offer an amazing view of the city and the ocean. Because there are no sidewalks in Bel Air, streets in this gated community are equally used by cars, pedestrians, jogging moms with strollers, and cyclists.
Cars and pedestrians beware: Everyone must share the road. Though the roads offer peak-a-boo views of the splendor of the city, these windy roads are confusing to navigate, and it’s easy to get lost in Bel Air if you’re not a native or resident. Take heart, follow the downhill road on any given Bel Air street, and hopefully amongst the welcomed distraction of the beautiful homes and breathtaking views, you’ll somehow wind up on Sunset Boulevard again and be back in the city.
