Temple in the Clouds / Panoramic 360 Degree View

“The temple in the clouds.” That’s what they call it. It's a one-of-a-kind 60-acre mountain property located high above Los Angeles in the Santa Monica Mountains. It’s a tough place to describe; there is no 140-character combination that will do it justice. The simplest illustration: it can be what you want it to be. It’s an upscale living quarter meets natural paradise meets hippie compound. It’s played host to some of history’s biggest icons; Jimi Hendrix & Andy Warhol to name a few, as well as served as a playground for acts such as Bon Jovi, The Doors, and even Playboy. It all began with S&H Green Stamp heir Lewis Marvin III purchasing the property in 1957. One step onto this place and it is very clear that Marvin had a unique taste; he was a true lover of animals and pursued an eccentric search for enlightenment - all very present here. What once served as a home for Marvin, his wife and three children, has now become one of the most recognizable backdrops for movies, photo shoots, and music videos in Southern California. The most astonishing aspect is it’s attention to detail. The living spaces are spread between three buildings: the Round House, a geodesic dome, and a trailer converted into a small home. The Wall Street Journal described the breathtaking Round House as“a two-story living room built inside a water tank-like building whose interior includes porous rainforest-wood walls, a giant chandelier and 20-foot tall windows looking out on the Santa Monica Bay far below." In between the living quarters is a garden sanctuary adorned with symbols, statues, and art representing peace, religion, and spirituality. Spend a few hours here and you’ll be immersed into a unique space unlike any other. The ultimate grab is the view. And this isn’t a view you can get anywhere; it is like nothing else that exists in Southern California. The property sports a panoramic 360 degree view of Los Angeles that is to die for. For a city like LA that is known for being incredibly expansive and fragmented, everything from Downtown LA to the Santa Monica bay is all but framed into a perfect picture here. Being almost 2,000 feet above the Pacific Ocean will do that for you. “It’s a world apart,” says Barbara Wayne, Mr. Marvin’s widow. “It’s contributed greatly to the imagination of anyone who comes to visit – my children included.” It is now available for bookings. Welcoming all movie shoots, photo shoots, music video productions, and artistic events. **Location is extremely private and not open to the public**

About Topanga

When you think of a small town, this is the kind of place that comes to mind. Topanga holds strong at a population of only about 8,500 people. This is in stark contrast to nearby cities such as Los Angeles, which are the definition of a typical California lifestyle.

Topanga is located within Los Angeles County but is within the Santa Monica Mountains that sprawl across the area. It is located within Topanga Canyon and the surrounding hills, so it has a unique point of view.

Topanga was discovered and established by several Native American tribes, and the meaning of the name is “where the mountain meets the sea.” This is a perfect description as the top of it lies within the mountains, but then the lowest part is the canyon down to sea level.

This is a place where celebrities like to visit as the summers are warm and dry, and don’t experience the same heat as other regions in the area. It is not a huge city for the aging population, but many come here to visit and take in the gorgeous canyon and surrounding areas within the mountain region.
