Tucked away behind the exclusive Bel Air East Gate, this prestigious Los Angeles neighborhood offers the sort of serenity and tranquility that’s extremely difficult to find in most urban environments. Bel Air is just a short drive away from several bustling business districts in the upscale westside of Los Angeles, but this lush green neighborhood still provides privacy for its residents. Living in Bel Air offers homeowners the best of both worlds: access to the perks of big city life such as great shopping, world-class dining, and cosmopolitan culture without having to sacrifice peace and quiet.
For these reasons, Bel Air has served as an urban oasis for the most influential and wealthy L.A. residents. This reputation is reflected in Bel Air’s real estate, as homes often command some of the highest residential property prices in the country. The city of Los Angeles is infamous for its tendency to change rapidly, but Bel Air has consistently maintained its title as one of the most desirable, exclusive, and luxurious residential communities in the region.
This exquisite compound at 277 St. Pierre Rd. is privately gated and surrounded by tall hedges that give it a secluded quality. The home is just a short drive from Sunset Boulevard and only 7 minutes to Rodeo Drive, a major thoroughfare offering access to the rest of the city.
The breathtaking Mediterranean architecture of 277 St. Pierre Rd. features balconies and terraces on every level. Also boasting a new renovation with interior design by world renown Gavin Brodin, this property is incomparable. In addition, the grounds offer an array of opportunities to enjoy the sunny, mild weather that Southern California is famous for.
There’s a definite sense of serenity at this estate, punctuated by the lush landscaping and abundance of fountains. From the moment you step into the stunning entryway, it’s obvious how special this property is. Visitors are greeted by high ceilings that allow for tall windows, providing ample natural lighting that extends to the marble floor. A sweeping staircase leads to the home’s upper levels and frames an exquisite chandelier that hangs in the center of the circular foyer.
The characteristics of the landscape at 277 St. Pierre Rd. make it unique among Bel Air real estate. Unlike most of the parcels in the neighborhood, the entire 1.1-acre property is on flat land. This makes the estate feel like a larger piece of property relative to its neighbors, where the land extends over steep, hilly areas. The estate takes advantage of every bit of buildable space on the parcel to boast an expansive, 36,000 square foot living space that features eight bedrooms and 20 bathrooms.
Think of any luxury amenity, and you’re likely to find it within this massive Bel Air compound. The features of this home include a private gym with modern exercise equipment, a two-lane bowling alley, a wine cellar, an indoor swimming pool, a steam room, a sauna, a massage room, a recreation room with billiards, ping-pong, and foosball tables, a screening room with seating for 20, and a racquetball court. Three elevators connect its multiple indoor and outdoor levels, making the entire property easily accessible.
In addition to the gorgeous indoor pool space, this breathtaking Mediterranean-style compound features a beautifully designed outdoor pool and spa. Adjacent to this pool area, you’ll find a massive tiled patio that features a full outdoor kitchen and dining area, a lush green lawn and garden, and a multitude of lounge areas with ample seating. With a fully equipped modern gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and a racquetball/basketball court, this home is truly ideal for home-buyers who value an active lifestyle.
In addition to the recreational options available on the property, 277 St. Pierre Rd. is less than a mile from the historic Bel Air Country Club, which has been in operation since 1925. Plus, thanks to their location at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains, Bel Air residents have easy access to the many scenic walks and hiking trails located in the coastal mountain range.
Mediterranean architecture, countless luxury amenities, and interior design by Gavin Brodin, are just a few reasons that 277 St. Pierre Rd. is a can’t-miss property. This home boasts the best of both worlds, providing plenty of privacy and tranquility without sacrificing convenience. Take advantage of the opportunity to own one of L.A.’s most regal luxury compounds, because homes this incredible don’t come on the market often.
