Home of the Week: A bucolic ranch in Bel-Air


Among Bel-Air’s historic estates and architectural mega-mansions, this ranch hideaway offers a breath of fresh air. There’s nothing pretentious here — just laid-back living in a serene, bucolic setting. Warm wood mingles with brick and stone in the living spaces, which include a glass-encased den and living room overlooking the colorful gardens outside. The leafy half-acre grounds also have a swimming pool surrounded by a stone patio.
