40 Acre Ranch 30min Studio Zone Woods Stream Cottage
Amazing 40 acre shooting ranch very close to town- a rare find! Was burned 2yrs ago during fires but lots left. One cottage with great interiors, many outdoor locations, stream mountains, woodlands, horse corals, bridges, interior roads, the grass and woodlands have grown back for picturesque areas. Some burned out "spooky" cottages & burned out "abandoned" vehicles for different gritty look. Great shooting location, it is within the studio zone (25 mins from Hollywoood and Downtown). No street lamps, no restrictions late night/overnight shooting. Very little overhead traffic and one very quiet road, private ranch surrounded by National Forest 6 minutes to freeways 210/5 Interior private roads you can use for driving shots. Doubled as Malibu (sand flat area against hills), cottage in the woods, big bear, mid west. Stream picnic areas, easy accesible. Or great for thriller. Electric on ranch. Parking enough for honey wagons/100 cars. Secure 2 gates. Cottage can be used for makeup/wardrobe/office or as location, 2 bed house, or Trailers can shoot or use makeup. We are used to working with film crews and people love working at our ranch. It is great for sound (v quiet) and well set up for movies. Lots of quaint little places for print too. We have animals you can use: horses, sheep, chickens, dogs, a pig. This is a movie ranch will also do ranch style weddings and parties up to 800 people. Inquire for flat rate for parties or weddings.
Jasper Johns' Studio and House Circa 1970
This house started life in the 30s as a barn and is hygge as all get-out. In the 70s it was purchased by modern arts legend Jasper Johns who hung out here with pals like Merce Cunningham, Robert Rauschenberg and John Cage. Needing a space to paint, Johns turned much of the second floor into a double-height studio, which gets glorious natural light from a combination of skylight, windows, and unique floor-to-ceiling windows that roll up like garage doors. He gave the rest of the house a similar mid-century, open plan treatment while adding a long deck and keeping the rustic features of the barn -- the exposed beams and wood walls.
The house sits against a hill on a lot of 1.29 acres. It is bounded by an old stone wall and a meandering stream, and is surrounded by ancient trees and rather undisciplined bracken. The wild, rustic look has attracted many fashion photographers. Clients have included Vogue Australia, True Lingerie, Ilana Kohn, L'Officiel and Manifesto magazines, Republic Records, and Astralwerks, a division of Universal Music Group.
IF YOU REQUEST TO BOOK: Please give me a description of your project, including the size of your crew, what type and number of vehicles, and a general description of equipment you will be using. Do you plan to dress the set or rely on extant furniture and props? Will you be shooting primarily outside or inside?
Also if you are doing a music video I'd like to know whether you will need to play live music or not. It's not necessarily a deal-breaker but I'm going to want to know. I recommend bringing a generator. This is an OLD COUNTRY HOUSE built and wired in the early thirties. The wiring system is geriatric and eccentric. It likes to take a break when it feels like it, which may not be at a convenient time for your shoot. That does not mean we will lose power entirely -- usually this a matter of going to the fuse box and resetting, but if I were you I would like to rely on my own power source if I was running heavy equipment.

The ultimate Joshua Tree oasis
The ultimate Joshua Tree oasis!
Find your escape in our high-desert hidden gem, perched on the brink of untouched wilderness amidst enchantingly weathered boulders, ancient juniper, pinón and desert oak trees. The tranquility will envelop you as you take in the brilliant, fiery sunsets with a 360 degree view from our expansive wrap-around wood deck equipped with ample seating, pool and jacuzzi, and a propane grill. After the sun goes down, stay up all night stargazing (we recommend the Star Walk App!) or pull out the telescope for those who already know where to look. Or just soak in the hot tub and enjoy the profound silence.
Our property is the ideal romantic getaway because of its privacy and 360 degree view of the property. The home features a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living area, and an outdoor wooden deck that wraps around space. Each room has an eclectic design from fun wallpaper to unique little Joshua Tree treasures scattered throughout the home. The furniture and decor offer midcentury modern, Native American, and Bohemian elements. We really enjoyed the open space floorpan. From every room of the house we were able to relax to the warm cotton candy sunset with sounds of Bon Iver playing off of the ranch record player.
At night, we unwind to a glass of wine while watching an old movie off of the projector screen. During nightfall, it becomes all them more magical as the pool lights up from the moon and bright stars. This is the only home on the property, so you will have the entire place to yourselves – the perfect retreat for anyone who simply wants to decompress in style and serenity. Great for couples, solo adventurers, and families alike! There is something about the ranch that gives us an immediate home-away-from-home feel that we love and are excited to have you experience it with us.
