12. Venetian-Style Mansion
This location takes us in a different direction compared to many other locations on this list with a style of design that is reminiscent of a Venetian castle or an estate that could have existed outside of this century. Entering this location is a jaw-dropping affair with the high-level ceilings, the sweeping double staircase, and over 14,000 square feet of luxury living. Not one detail is out of place, from the chandeliers to the floor to ceiling murals. The double infinity pool on this estate is the most stunning feature, overlooking the city and double the size of normal pools, providing an incredibly versatile, blank-slate for filming.
This location is a true representation of 1960s architecture with an infusion of modern influence, distinct and memorable.

The pool located at the center of the location has an ethereal feel to it, especially as it is illuminated at night.
10. Fabulous Mediterranean
This location is the most similar to a neighborhood home out of this entire list, surrounded by other homes on a shared street. However, it still boasts a gorgeous interior and an unbelievable backyard area featuring an incredible skyline view and an alluring pool and spa. The interior is warmly decorated, creating an incredibly inviting and homely atmosphere. Both the backyard and the interior space holds endless opportunities for filming and shooting.
9. Modern Rock
There are no other words to describe this location beyond modern and pristine with the brightly lit, white interior, the abundance of windows and glass panels, and the clean-cut, unconventional exterior structure. The pool, accented by a small fire pit, lawn chairs, and shaped by concrete, fits in perfectly with the aesthetic while simultaneously elevating the location to become more inviting. With a peaceful atmosphere and not one detail out of place, this location rivals any house filming set in LA.
This location takes us in a completely different direction than the other locations on this list with the heavy Spanish influence prevalent in every aspect of this property. No design nor detail is out of place among the interior, rather everything is pristine and meticulously decorated. Looking upon this location is a jaw-dropping sight simply due to the sheer size, both of the mansion and of the pools, which nearly rival the mansion in size. The pools are both simple but enormous, with one installed in concrete flooring and in the perfect location to relax and sun and with the other surrounded by greenery, creating a lake-esque image.
7. Santa Rosa
With an amazing backyard full of foliage and natural sunlight, this location heavily emulates a forest, perfect for filming anything that needs an aura of wilderness without seeming too isolated.

4. The Dogtown Moroccan
This location features one of the coolest pools in California but with one major difference from every other location on this list: this pool is currently empty. What makes this pool even more unique is the intricate paintings visible along one section of the pool wall, correlating with the Moroccan-style designs and artwork within the interior of the home. This location perfectly emulates an old-timey castle, from the expansive white exterior, the interior layout, and the old, “magical” wishing well.
3. Jai House
Described as a merging of clean lines and pure form, the Jai House boasts a rich history and its purpose as a spiritual sanctuary. This location has been repeatedly praised for its architecture and design and has fast become one of the most notable locations in Los Angeles. The exterior and the pool at this location aligns with everything else about the location: the design is visually appealing but incredibly unique and distinctive. The exterior is set in nature and isolated and the pool is incredibly lengthy and narrow. Blending the barrier between nature and habitat, this location is one of the most complex on our website, and it also features one of the coolest pools in California. What a steal!
