Property of The Week: 1859 Bel Air Road


Los Angeles, CA - Bel Air’s newest architectural marvel has just hit the market for $68 million. Located at 1859 Bel Air Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90077, the newly built, custom residential estate, appropriately branded as 1859, sits on a generous 1.6 acre lot, boasting three expansive stories, 9 bedrooms and 12 baths across 20,000 square feet of interior space. Masterminded by Los Angeles-based development firm, Balakhani Estates in partnership with award-winning architectural firm, Tag Front and world-renowned Los Angeles-based interior designer, César Giraldo of César Giraldo Design, 1859 exemplifies venerable beauty and an artful abundance of sophistication. A first and last of its kind, 1859 is listed by Sally Forster Jones, Levik Stephan and Anita Stephan of the Sally Forster Jones Group at Compass, Tomer Fridman of The Fridman Group at Compass, and Chantel Mehrabanian of Sotheby's International Realty - Beverly Hills Brokerage.

Utopian Architecture and Design Comes to Life at 1859 

After nearly seven years in development, 1859 is now known as one of the premier tri-level estates in coveted Bel Air offering impeccable attention to detail, an unmistakable eye for global design, and one of the finest vast view lots in Los Angeles. The sleek curvature of the exterior of the house is a work of art in itself, with clean lines, geometric shapes, and a contemporary design that exudes sophistication and elegance. An eco-green living wall, and a manicured pathway above a striking water feature encompass the 350-foot width of frontage and lead to a moment of arrival, peering above the clouds and extending to the views of the Ocean, Catalina Island, and the canyons from Bel Air

A grand, masterpiece spiral staircase connects two stories, appears suspended, and was carefully engineered with aluminum and steel, immediately immersing guests in the home’s meticulous design. A custom selected chandelier from Giraldo’s soon-to-be-launched 2023 residential collection hangs above and shines directly through its spiral design to the property’s second level. 

A free-flowing main level dialogues with the outdoor veranda from the sunken formal living room and intimate entertainment spaces, to the breakfast nook and Poliform chef’s kitchen with a seamless caterer’s preparation galley ideally hidden directly behind. Each statement room is designed with a subtle transition from the last with modern architecture and first-class amenities. The master suite is a true oasis, with a fireplace, a sitting area, two walk-in closets, custom 1859 door hardware by Stax, and a spa-like shower with tubs, steam shower, and dual vanities. Three-story walls of glass drape a bamboo cove exposing the incredible backyard scape with an outdoor lanai, a substantial infinity pool and spa, and an effortless flow over the canyon. 

The property is outfitted with pieces from Giraldo’s recently launched rug collection, Straight Lines Unexpected Curves, inspired by Art Deco design. Working with global brands such as Poliform, Luminaire, Poltrona Frau, and more, Giraldo created unique feelings for each room with subtle transitions throughout. Soft colors can be experienced across the space with select statement pieces subtly surprising with bolder hues. A great combination of textures in the furniture can be felt throughout alongside soft and textured fabrics with a mixture of stone and wood tonalities. 

Giraldo curated a very special selection of international artists for 1859 designed to appeal to the world’s sophisticated buyers. A special painting by renowned Parisian artist, Pierre

Bonnefille adorns the living space. A meaningful, one-of-a-kind painting named, “Dancing Flower” sits above the breakfast nook, a work of art created by an artistic collaboration between Colombian artist Angelica Kastillo and a young Colombian girl named Ana Evelyn. The painting features beautiful vivid colors; a gorgeous navy blue flower in an orange background. The proceeds of the sale will go to a non-profit Colombian foundation that helps individuals who have faced violence in Colombia. 


1859’s lower level allows an ultimate experience in leisure and wellness, complete with a playroom, theater, gym with signature TechnoGym equipment, and a 1,152 bottle wine lounge with custom 1859 door hardware by Stax. A spa with sauna, soaking tub and overhead rain shower sit harmoniously against a Giraldo Design curated image of the idyllic Benagil Cave, an intimate beach in the Algarve, Portugal, illuminated via an artistic wall light box. 

A Custom Olfactory Experience Designed Exclusively for 1859 

Parisian fragrance brand Ex Nihilo collaborated with Giraldo to create a custom olfactory experience designed exclusively for 1859. This partnership between design and fragrance kindles a personalized sensory ambiance designed to form a sustained artistic atmosphere, turning a house into a home.  

Throughout the property, 1859 is outfitted with bespoke 1859-branded Ex Nihilo products including curated candles, perfumed mists for the spa, a body line for the primary bedroom and powdered room as well as a surprise fragrance box for the primary bedroom. To further enhance the olfactory experience, six custom Ex Nihilo diffusers are thoughtfully placed throughout the property. Conveniently managed through a digital app, all settings can be personalized based on preference of intensity, schedules, scent levels, and more. All 1859-branded products, an estimated $25,000 value will be made available with the purchase of 1859.
