Description for Bell Canyon

Bell Canyon is surrounded by the cities of West Hills, Calabasas, and Woodland Hills. The Simi hills are to the north. There are approximately 800 home sites on lots that range from ½ acre to 40 acres. In 2010, the population of Bell Canyon was 2,049.

This 24 hour guard gated community spans 3.5 square miles. Because of the safety, privacy and seclusion that Bell Canyon offers, many film and music celebrities choose to call Bell Canyon home. Just 5 miles outside the gate, you will find yourself on the Ventura (US 101) Freeway, and some of the finest restaurants and shopping in the area. Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany are some of the stores in the newly remodeled Topanga Mall. Nearby are top notch medical facilities such as West Hills Hospital and Kaiser Permanente. Part of the highly acclaimed Las Virgenes School district, Bell Canyon students, (and parents), enjoy the convenience of bus stops located within the gates of the community.

Bell Canyon features unique topography, with many homes set high on the hillside. There are no visible power lines in Bell Canyon. All power lines are beneath the ground. World renowned architect Cliff May, who was responsible for designing the majority of the homes in Bell Canyon, chose to work WITH the land and created his trademark “Southern California Modern Ranch Style” home. (Think horsey hacienda meets post-war modernism.) In 1968, May’s creation, the Bell Canyon Equestrian Center opened its gates. In 1969, before Bell Canyon was officially named Bell Canyon, (named after the original homesteaders in the 1800’s), “Woodland Hills Country Estates” opened for sales. All of the 800 home sites were sold in just 10 days!

Recently, the Bell Canyon Equestrian Center underwent a 2 year makeover, restoring it to Mays original glory. The center remains one of the leading full service Class A equestrian centers in the area. There are 4 barns, 80 stalls, several corrals, sand riding arenas, and hot walkers.

There is a strong community presence in Bell Canyon. The Community Center organizes car shows, wine tastings, and the well known “Hot August Night” party featuring an old school pie eating contest and a chili cook-off.

Riders, bikers, and hikers alike can enjoy many wide trails in the area surrounding Bell Canyon. Some of the trails lead right to the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve Park (formerly known as Ahmanson Ranch). “Bell Creek” runs through the community from the 5 acre “Bell Park” to the L.A. River. This riparian habitat is home to diverse species of vegetation as well as the usual critters: coyote, hawks, quail, and deer. Make the trek to Chastain Falls waterfall…breathtaking.
