Largest Undeveloped Parcel In Fabled Bel-Air, Ca On Market Represented By Aaron Kirman Of Aaroe Estates

Asking $125 Million For Prime 258-Acre Site in One of Nation's Most Affluent Neighborhoods


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aaron Kirman, president of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of John Aaroe Group, has listed the largest undeveloped parcel of real estate in Bel-Air, one of the nation's most exclusive residential neighborhoods. The 258-plus-acre site is priced at a cool $125 million—making it the most expensive property currently listed for public sale in the Los Angeles area.

The listing offers wealthy investors a chance to own more than 5 percent of the Bel-Air neighborhood, an enclave made famous in countless Hollywood films and television shows.  "This site is one of the best remaining development opportunities in Bel-Air," Mr. Kirman said. "It's a rare opportunity to develop something truly amazing— one significant estate or perhaps multiple estate homes, with a golf course. The sky's the limit."

Founded in 1923 by Alphonzo E. Bell, the affluent Bel-Air neighborhood forms part of Los Angeles' "Platinum Triangle" with the adjacent Beverly Hills and Holmby Hills neighborhoods. The undeveloped site previously was owned by a family that donated adjacent acreage to the Stephen S. Wise Temple, the Skirball Cultural Center and the Los Angeles Conservancy. The acreage is currently owned by a private international investor. For the online listing, go to .
