"casino-style Tuscan villas"

Great quote at the end of the LA Times article today about "mega-mansions":
But the locals also talk about a less tangible issue: the way that an influx of mega-mansions can change the character of a close-knit community.

Many of the original homes in the area, built after the 1961 Bel-Air fire, were modest ranch houses of three and four bedrooms.

As homes have sold and the area has grown in cachet, some people have torn down and replaced with what one resident calls "casino-style Tuscan villas."

Bel-Air? Who cares? Mansions in a luxury community?

This isn't Downey or Rosemead.

Bel-Air has a great public elementary school, some very nice, modest homes on lots large enough for swingsets and a shaggy dog or two. i also have a fondness for the occasional raccoon in the swimming pool.

Bel-Air is nice, just not $5 million-for-a-decent-house-on-a-decent-lot nice.

well it is a bargain compared to 90402

five mil in 90402 is a tiny lot and five mil in bel air gets you a nice piece of land
