A Project Unlike Any Other: 1250 Bel Air Road

In mid-2018, QuickDraw Fund Control was selected to provide Inspection and Fund Control services for the renovation of the property located at 1250 Bel Air Road, Los Angeles, CA 90077. For this project, we worked with Skylark Capital Management, Inc and Roman James Design Build.



Originally built in 1993, the world-class renovation of this 14,000 square foot estate was an exciting project and experience unlike anything we had ever seen or worked on. Taking the home down to bare walls, Roman’s vision was extraordinarily grand and detailed. He sourced the finest materials from around the globe and selected the Southlands’ most accomplished and skilled tradesman to renovate an estate that is nothing short of spectacular.


The renovation was, in reality, a new construction build. Cutting edge design changes were implemented to increase livable space and enhance views of the house, both inside and out. The finest finish materials from around the world were sourced and hand-selected for each room.



State-of-the-art mechanical, plumbing, solar and electrical systems, windows and collapsing sliding glass doors, whole house automation and backup systems were installed.


The project presented unique challenges with staging materials and multi-floor, custom construction. Updating the free-standing pool structure, with the pool situated above and the cabana below, required additional engineering and hillside construction.



Speaking about the renovation, QuickDraw President Greg Norris said, “1250 Bel Air took my breath away every time I inspected the property. The design and planning, quality of every system and the attention to detail was unlike anything I had ever seen. It was not just amazing to watch, I learned so much about construction at The Orchard at Bel Air. It was an honor to be a part of such a breathtaking project.”


“In the highly complex world of the industry’s most expensive luxury home developments, QuickDraw Fund Control and their highly skilled team delivered yet another seamless service for multi-million dollar construction financing and our building teams to produce this spectacular new home, ” said Roman James, Founder of Roman James Design Build.



The renovated property offers impeccable views of the hills, downtown Los Angeles and the California coast and is currently listed for sale at $48 million.


The property’s description reads, “Exuding sophistication and style, this 6 bedroom, 10 bathroom home includes several living spaces, a state of the art kitchen and catering kitchen, walk in safe, sauna, gym and elevator. Main level entertainment space includes a 15 feet by 6 feet high .125 pixel 4K video wall, with 2,000 sq foot terrace. The multi-level expansive outdoor living space encompasses a lavish pool, spa, barbecue, dining area, water features and multiple outdoor fireplaces. Equipped with cutting edge technology, all features of the home are controlled by smart systems. This serves as both a private oasis and a vision for an entertainer. The Orchard Bel Air is the epitome of the California dream.”
