Bel Air is a neighborhood on the Westside of Los Angeles, California, in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains with fascinating, rich history.

The community was founded in 1923 by Alphonzo Bell. Bell owned farm property in Santa Fe Springs, California, where oil was discovered. He bought a large ranch with a home on what is now Bel Air Road. He subdivided and developed the property with large residential lots, with work on the master plan led by the landscape architect Mark Daniels. He also built the Bel-Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades and the Bel-Air Country Club. His wife chose Italian names for the streets.

Together with Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills, Bel Air forms the Platinum Triangle of Los Angeles neighborhoods.

Bel Air is situated about 12 miles (19 km) west of Downtown Los Angeles, set entirely within the Santa Monica Mountains. It lies across Sunset Boulevard from the northern edge of the main campus of the University of California, Los Angeles. At the heart of the community sits the Bel-Air Country Club and the Hotel Bel-Air.

As fun facts to note, the home that was used for exterior shots for the television show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is actually located in neighboring Brentwood, while the “Beverly Hills” home of The Beverly Hillbillies is a famed and renowned estate that’s located in Bel Air, specifically, The Chartwell Estate. Chartwell was reportedly purchased for about $150,000,000 in late 2019 by Lachlan Murdoch.

Bel Air is also home to a vineyard and winery, The Estate - Moraga Bel Air. Truly one of the most unique wine estates in all of California, this estate is currently owned by Rupert Murdoch (Lachlan’s father).
