The Wet Prince Of Bel Air

The mega mansion always confuses. Unless you entertain a lot of people, and often, and have a Downton Abbey-esque staff, I really can't see that point. And I wouldn't want a Downton Abbey-esque staff. Doesn't provide for much privacy. Not telling people how to spend their money. I truly just don't get it.
Maureen Levinson, a member of the Bel Air Beverly Crest Neighbourhood Council, nevertheless insists that most residents “have engaged in water conservation efforts”. The bigger concern, she says, is the construction of super-sized luxury homes in the area (locally referred to as “giga-mansions”).

“These development projects include excessive numbers of pools and water features,” says Levinson. She cites one instance where the city authorities have approved five massive pools for a single family dwelling.
