Bell Canyon

Today private guard-gated Bell Canyon has developed into an extremely affluent area of 800 'estate homes', each on a 1/2 acre to 40-acre (160,000 m2) parcel. Many of the area's equestrian properties have stables, paddocks, turnouts and other horse facilities. It's compared to nearby Hidden Hills a few miles to the south. Both Bell Canyon and Hidden Hills have security procedures at 24 hour guarded entrance gates, security patrols, and spacious residential zoning. Bell Canyon's differences are: unique topographic features; higher hillside elevations; isolation; and some architecturally notable houses designed by architects including Marshall Lewis, Don Zavatto, Ed Niles, Robert Byrd, Blair Ballard, Buff and Hensman, and pioneer of the post-war California ranch-style house, Cliff May.

Equestrian Center

At the heart of the Horse Community is the Cliff May designed Bell Canyon Equestrian Center, a Class-A equestrian facility which offers a wide variety of training in English-hunters, equitation, show jumping as well as western riding. Built in the early sixties, this facility has recently been restored and returned to its intended state-of-the-art condition via a $537,000.00 renovation project that took nearly 2 years to complete. It is one of the few remaining full-service equestrian centers in the area. The grounds, which can accommodate up to 120 horses, feature four barns with 80 stalls, 12 x 24 corrals, three sand riding arenas, two enclosed bullpens and hot walker, and tree shaded picnic areas.


Organized community events include: the annual "Hot August Night" community fair where children and adults participate in pie-eating contests and chili cook-offs; dog shows; wine tastings; progressive dinners; 'Snow Day;' 'Halloween Hang;' 'Movies in The Park;' and the annual car show. Over ten different social committees support residents Bell Canyon such as: the Adult Activities Committee, Investment Club, Bell Canyon Hikers, The Book Club, Kids Committee, and Community Planning.


Bell Canyon is served by the Las Virgenes Unified School District, with students bussed each day to attend the schools of: Round Meadow Elementary School, Alice C. Stelle Middle School, and Calabasas High School.
