The Thurston Area is located in the southwest corner of Bel Air, north of Sunset Blvd and east of Sepulveda Blvd and the 405 Freeway. This lower Bel Air neighborhood is self-contained with only one point of entry. Residents enjoy relative peace and quiet thanks to the absence of through traffic traversing the community.
The neighborhood offers close proximity to Sunset Blvd and the 405 Freeway providing easy access to the Valley and all of Westside. Abundant retail and dining options in both Brentwood and Westwood Villages are only minutes away.
The Thurston Area offers a mix of one and two story mid century homes. Redevelopment has been surprisingly limited, although many residences have been partially or entirely remodeled in recent years. Low lying geography limits views in much of the neighborhood, but properties with sight lines of the city, Getty Center, and surrounding hills can be found, particularly along the upper portion of Thurston Circle.
