If you need a rustic site with oak trees, creeks and dirt roads this is the place! There are 13 acres to peruse to find the perfect spot. It's quiet and set far from the road. Plenty of parking, power and holding spaces available.
We have had directors rewrite their scripts because they fell in love with this place. Levi's-global shot here - their directive was to find a place that could be anywhere in the planet and they said this property fit that description perfectly. We have hosted many film and photo shoots here and always do our best to help them have a successful shoot.
Additionally, we have numerous artistic hand-built cottages available for rental in this 13 acre park-like setting. Perfect for film and photography, the property is set back from the road with lots of rustic buildings and looks. Only 15 minutes from Santa Monica, Malibu and the Valley, it feels like you are far off in the mountains. The main stone house and fireplace is over 100 years old.
Spanning over 70 acres in beautiful Topanga Canyon, our breathtaking estate will immerse you in nature, trees, and wildlife. Stunning landscapes from every angle, a seasonal waterfall that suspends from the property’s peak, and numerous scenic locations within the property are just a few of its draws.
Mountains surround the estate, making you feel miles away from the city. Yet our location is only a stone’s throw away from Topanga Village and 10 minutes from PCH. Our estate offers privacy and land in abundance, but also the convenience of close proximity to amenities.
The main home features an open plan living space of 3,000 square feet. Natural light floods the space with floor to ceiling windows wrapping around the entire house. Our peaceful sanctuary emits a Tibetan prayer house vibe, with modern decor that will fit effortlessly into its many possibilities for use. The open plan allows for large space needs, or can be set up to allow for multiple sitting rooms and a dining space.
The variety of vegetation throughout the grounds creates multiple microclimates on the property, creating different environments and landscapes. From lush, green, mossy fern banks along the natural creek, to expansive grasslands studded with boulders and sculptural trees. Meditative nature paths wind up the mountainside, leading to the breathtaking seasonal waterfall.
