Retractable glass walls and frameless balustrades optimize sweeping lake, mountain and city views, while promoting seamless indoor/outdoor living. “This spectacular Bel Air home elicits an intense emotional experience the moment you walk through the front door,” said Farah Levi, director of residential sales at The Agency.

The main floor touts soaring ceilings and an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. Showcasing Italian design, the custom chef’s kitchen is characterized by top-of-the-line Thermador integrated appliances, sleek glass door cabinetry, imported hardware, and dual islands topped with quartzite sourced from India.

The spectacular outdoor space on this level features a 70-foot infinity pool with a spa, Baja shelf and sunken fire pit. Practice self-care in the interior adjacent sauna and steam room, or simply kick back on the 800-square-foot deck, complete with a calming water feature. The spacious grass lawn is the perfect spot for a family game of bocce or growing your own vegetable garden.
