As one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in Southern California with a well-established reputation for being the A-lister’s enclave, Bel Air has its fair share of luxurious real estate. It’s to the point where a property needs to go beyond what would otherwise already be considered “insane” to truly differentiate itself. But soon enough, Stella Nova mansion might just be the place to sweep prospective buyers off their feet, quelling any and all desires to look elsewhere.
Situated on a private road near Sunset Boulevard, spread across approximately seven graded acres within a total 30-acre parcel, this exact vantage point showcases close to 360-degree panoramic views – Downtown LA, the mountains, ocean, etc. Stella Nova mansion itself offers 40,000-square-feet of living space – 2,000 square feet for the master suite alone – and after more than a decade of exhaustive planning to secure the correct permits, approvals, and so forth to even dream about building such a residence, you better believe it’s coming to the table with a full plate.
“It is difficult to put into words just how magnificent an opportunity Stella Nova presents,” says Lynn Teschner, representing agent.
“From its immense privacy and world-class location to its spellbinding views and near-limitless potential for creativity. There is no shortage of beautiful estates in Bel Air, but never has an opportunity of this scale and calibre presented itself. It is truly a Shangri-La in the making.”
