Home of the Week: 1950s French Regency gets a makeover in Bel-Air


This French-style home on half an acre in Bel-Air had remained in just one family prior to selling two years ago. Since then, the 1950s residence has been renovated to modernize its looks while showcasing its tranquil setting among the treetops.

Walls of floor-to-ceiling windows frame the living room, bringing leafy views inside. Expanded decking creates additional space outdoors and sits flush with a new cantilevered swimming pool, which gives the illusion of floating over the hillside.
