House of the Day: Tuscany Comes to Bel-Air
We're expecting a celebrity tussle over who gets to buy this one. A prime Bel-Air Tuscany-style estate overlooking the Bel-Air Country Club in Los Angeles just came on the market at $28.5 million.
The 18,500-square-foot home sits behind some pretty serious security gates (always a bonus for the A-Listers), although since it is surrounded on all sides by fairways, we all know that not even Homeland Security can stop a determined golf ball from becoming a gate crasher.

The eight-bedroom home has a cobblestone courtyard and large terraces that overlook manicured gardens and lawns. The downstairs interiors have floors of Brazilian cherrywood and stone imported from Europe. There are six fireplaces, a drawing room, library, formal living and dining rooms, a two-story grand entry hall, and a gourmet kitchen with four ovens and three dishwashers. Upstairs, there is a large master bedroom suite with his and hers bathrooms -- mandatory in any dream house these days -- and two large wardrobe closets. Lots of majestic wood built-ins elevate this house to top status.
Bruce Nelson and Raymond Bekeris of John Bruce Nelson & Associates have the listing.
